About us: We first met on Tinder two years ago and had three dates already planned before actually meeting each other. Pete was my type being tall, dark and handsome and I was Pete’s type being blonde, blue eyed and could apparently dance like a black girl. It was love at first sight! Haha!
It was set in an historic building, in the early evening with a short ceremony and a long celebration. Canapes and bubbles rotated around with only being interrupted by Burundian drummers or the bagpipes. The Officers Mess didn’t require a lot of detail to dress up for the occasion – our third mum and father – very close to us both (Robyn and John Ferguson) helped with the decorating to add a touch of difference. With fairy lights, endless supply of foliage from K-mart and jumbo balloons it was the artificial flower wall and jumbo dandelions from Sienna Reid that completed the simply unique occasion.
Advice for couples? Every wedding is different and unique. So continue to make it so. Don’t be a sheep.
