How did you meet?

Chris and I met through his sister, Kirstie as I went to school with her. She found out we both thought each other was cute and she set us up on a movie date! She ended up being my maid of honour.

How did Chris propose?

Chris proposed to me while we were holidaying in New Zealand. We were staying at a hotel in Queenstown over looking the Remarkables when he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him! The date was December 11, 2013 (11/12/13… Quite an easy date to remember!)

What made you choose TEN22 BOUTIQUE VENUE?

We had a look at a few places around Adelaide but when we saw the inside of Ten22 we loved it. It suited our relaxed vintage wedding to a tee!

What menu did you choose & why?

We chose to have the shared plates menu at our wedding as we liked the idea of people having to talk to each other to pass the plate around… Kind of like a family style dinner.

What did you love most about Ten22?

We just loved the vintage style of the place and the relaxed but sophisticated feel it had. We also liked that is was almost a blank canvas a we could set the place up as we liked. We went for a relaxed, vintage look with a pop of red. 

Your dress & bridesmaids dresses?

My wedding dress was from Princess Collection and I bought it within a month of getting engaged. I fell in love with it as soon as I tried it on. My dress had an illusion neckline, with lace, a little beading and a tulle skirt.  The bridesmaid dresses were from Jenny and Gerry’s and were strapless in a raspberry red colour. 

How did you come up with your styling ideas and what wedding suppliers helped you create your unique style?

I looked through a lot of bridal magazines and went to quite a few different wedding expos to look for styles and ideas I liked. I new I wanted a vintage inspired wedding so that made it easier to come up with styles I liked. We used “A Moment in Time Wedding Planning.” Yasmin was a lot of help. She did everything from making our invitations to setting up our ceremony and reception. I'd highly recommend them to anyone else who is planning a wedding!

Where did you honeymoon?

Chris and I went to Europe on a Contiki tour for 18 nights. We visited 12 countries all up!
