Our ceremony was held at the Bendigo Jockey Club with the reception to follow at Silks Function Centre. We met at The Star Bar around six years ago (you can find true love out clubbing). Luke bought me a drink and we just hit it off instantly. Luke proposed to me while we were travelling around Australia. We were surrounded by the beautiful landscape of The Kimberly region having a few beers and Luke got down on bended knee and proposed. He had been carrying the ring around in his rattle gun box – he obviously knew I wouldn’t look in there. The designer of my dress was Martina Liana. I decided to put my own flavour on the dress and changed the straps from spaghetti to one
shoulder (which was made with leftover fabric from the hem). I also added the black sash around the waist and wore black shoes. There were so many highlights of our day including getting ready with my bridesmaids, seeing Luke when I first stepped out of the car – he looked so handsome, the wedding invites my sister designed for us, my gorgeous niece Leni walking down the aisle and stopping by to visit my 91-year-old grandpa who couldn’t make it to the ceremony. He still has a great sense of humour and loved all of the girls popping in to see him.
