I was very lucky to get the most amazing peonies, which opened up to be these full fluffy pink pillow creations. Bigger than my head and appropriately named ‘Dinner Plate’, these were the star of the show!
Scott proposed on our seventh anniversary. He asked if I’d take our dog for a walk with him, we went on our usual walk along the water, Scott had hidden some champagne in the bushes and we had a glass to celebrate our anniversary. Then he told me he’d bought a new collar for our dog, so I bent down to look at it and embroidered on it was, “Carly, will you marry me?” It was so special because our dog means the world to us, and it was such a simple idea.
We met at high school, in our hometown of Keri Keri – so a long time ago! We went to Elam art school together, then moved to Sydney, where we still live, not long after that. We both enjoy spending our weekends escaping the city, either camping, fishing or bushwalking. One weekend while camping, Rowland casually dropped the question. We were having a picnic on the beach. He’d had a ring made by one of his work colleagues, which was really special.
