Chelsea & Geoff


The Big Question

He surprised me one morning by waking me up at 3am, told me to get dressed and then drove me out to some fields where they were setting up Hot Air balloons, we took a ride across Camden and he proposed half way through the trip. It was a big surprise and of course I cried and grabbed hold of the ring so tightly as I was worried I would drop it!

Shop 'Til You Drop


I knew a few things I wanted for my dress but nothing too specific, it definitely had to have long sleeves and pockets! The first store I went to I tried on about 20 dresses just so I could get an idea for the shape I wanted, once I knew the shape I liked I then had to find the dress with the detail that suited my style.

When I walked into Brides of Beecroft with my mum I immediately pulled out a dress that caught my eye, I tried it on, showed my mum and we both had the largest grins on our face, almost in tears! It was the Augusta Jones Anna Dress, I knew it was the one! After a second trip with my bridesmaids to get a final tick of approval  it was a no brainer, so we ordered it straight then and there!


The Perfect Day

The day was the most relaxed and enjoyable day we could have asked for. My husband started the day playing golf with his mates and my day started with hair and makeup with my best friends/bridesmaids. The day was stunning and even more so as my girls and I were at the Pier One Hotel on Sydney Harbour looking straight at the Harbour Bridge.

I think I started to get nervous about an hour before I had to walk down the aisle, I had a Carrie Bradshaw moment where I needed to hear Geoff's voice to know it was all going to be ok, unlike Mr Big, Geoff answered his phone so that was a good sign, he assured me that everything was going to be ok and said he can't wait to see me, that's all I needed.

The rest of the night was absolutely magical, we didn't want to be too formal with proceedings, we just wanted to have fun and celebrate the moment with our friends and family. It all went way too fast, as they all say, but I wouldn't change a thing! I'll cherish that night forever with Geoff!


Wise Words


Don't get bogged down in the details, make it your own style and do everything you ever want to do, you only get married once so enjoy the most special moment!
