LINDSAY + MATTY

18.03.2017

WHEN AND HOW WE ME

We met at work. The photocopier lost power and as the facility supervisor it was Matty’s responsibility to fix it. Sparks flew from day one (pardon the pun). We were engaged 8 months later and married within 20 months!

 

OUR WEDDING LOCATION

 

We knew we wanted a Yarra Valley wedding and TarraWarra Estate ticked all the boxes. Small, intimate and a personalised service with great food wine and that location!! Also once we met Annie, we were ready to sign on the dotted line. She was our amazing contact at TarraWarra and our guests all commented on how wonderful she was, she even found a needle and thread for a guest who lost a button on his pants!

 

THE DRESS + VEIL

ONE DAY Violet Gown 

I went to a few stores after scouring Instagram, magazines and blogs. I went to boutiques as well as the ‘vanilla’ stores and just could not find any that were quite right. From the moment I walked into One Day I knew I would find my dress. Amazing service from the girls instantly set the mood. It was fun relaxed and not a bit stuffy like I had experienced elsewhere.

 

THE WEDDING PARTY

My bridesmaid was 9 months pregnant on the wedding day so we found a beautiful dress 2 weeks before the wedding at Soon maternity in Malvern. Jacqui looked amazing. The boys wore suits from MJ Bale.

 

THE BEST ADVICE I WAS GIVEN

Laugh a lot and enjoy the mistakes. My now husband said my ‘awful’ wedded wife by accident and I lost it! What a great memory we still laugh about it.

 

HENS DAY

I had a small celebration at Riverland in Melbourne one Saturday afternoon. Family and friends laughing and drinking… the perfect day.
