Elle & Peter


The Big Question

We were on holiday last year in Rome and went for dinner at a beautiful restaurant not far from the Pantheon; afterwards Peter proposed to me back at our hotel where it was just us. It was very exciting to be engaged after 7 years of being together. After he popped the question, we of course headed out for a celebratory prosecco in a nearby piazza - when in Rome! It was perfect.

Shop 'Til You Drop


I actually found my Augusta Jones Skyler dress the first day I went dress shopping! One of my best friends recommended Brides of Beecroft the night before I was going to start my search and from the minute I walked in to the store I had a good feeling about finding my dress. The owner, Wendy, completely got what I was looking for and the vision we had for our wedding so pulled out a few dresses that fitted the brief.

I think it was the second or third dress that I tried on and I absolutely fell in love with the Skyler dress. It was exactly what I was looking for in a dress - relaxed but classic and very flattering. There were also a few tears from my mum so that was a good sign!

The Perfect Day


My husband moved to Australia from Scotland to be with me after we met in London, so we definitely wanted to include a Scottish touch to our wedding which our beautiful venue location and the cloudy weather certainly provided! We had an outdoor ceremony in a spot looking out to the Blue Mountains, with a relaxed dinner reception in the barn to follow.. plus plenty of dancing and laughs!


Wise Words

My advice is to remember to have fun and take a moment to acknowledge how grateful and happy you feel to have married the love of your life with all your best friends and family with you! 

Don't get too caught up with everything needing to be perfect, or having the ideal Pinterest wedding -  it will be what you make it to be so just enjoy the day.
