Dominique + Corey
How did you meet?
Like most romances these days, our fairy-tail started on Instagram. First a like, followed by another like and then you guessed it – a direct message.
Corey and I always knew of each other from living in the same area, but we never knew how compatible we would be and how fast our love would form.
When did you know they were the one?
I knew Corey was the one from the first time he met my family. Not only was he so incredibly polite and respectful but the love and patience he showed towards my elderly grandparents stole my heart,
What are your three favourite attributes of your partner?
Extremely generous – especially with his time, he cannot do enough for people
Super hard working
Who proposed and how?
Corey proposed to me.
Corey is the biggest Christmas lover I know, and on Christmas Day 2020, perfectly disguised as a present under our tree, Corey wrapped up a glass Christmas bauble with the words “will you marry me?” Printed in it. Sitting infront out our tree, with our German shepherd and in our matching Christmas pyjamas – it was so perfect and so us.
Where did you fall in love with your dress and why?
I fell in love with my dress at your St Ives store in NSW.
I had been searching online, and from the second I came across the Harlow i knew it was the one!
I booked my appointment, took my cheer squad with me and tried on 5 dresses but saved the Harlow for last.
From the moment I put it on and walked out of the fitting room I just knew that this dress was me. It’s sexy, fun, a little daring but also modest. I adored my dress on so many levels and once paired with the sheer skirt for my church ceremony I just fell in love all over again
What was the best moment for you at your wedding?
My absolute favourite moment was getting to the top of the aisle, and even knowing that the church was full of our nearest and dearest – all I could see was Corey.
In a sea of blurry faces, all I could see was those being blue eyes and big cheeky smile and I will never forget that feeling.
What were your favourite details?
I love everything! I feel as though I was a very laid back bride, so everything I had organised exceeded my wildest dreams and more.
From my dress, to my bridesmaids, the flowers, our singer and everything in between k was just blown away at how much effort was out in from all of our beautiful vendors. I felt like I was dealing with friends with each vendor and it honestly was the best feeling.
What advice would you tell other brides?
Take in every moment.
From your morning cup of tea that leads into multiple champagnes with your girls as you get ready, right up until the moment you bid your guests goodbye. Soak up every minute because it all goes so fast and you never want it to end.
Also steal your Hubby away for a 10 minute breather away from all the hype and noise and just enjoy some quality time together and reflect in your day so far.
Any standout vendors?
My florist – Two wild hearts. She is incredible! I did not have to worry about a single thing with Emily. She is so in friendly talented and in control and so professional but also so calm. I love her!
My videographer – hidden leaf productions. Travis will forever be my god send on our wedding day. I am so incredibly grateful for everything he did for us. From wiping the stems down on the bouquets, to pinning on button holes and helping my grandparents, ensuring Corey and I were ok – at all times, and had eaten. He was so professional and so humble and polite and I will never be able to thank him enough. Also our video is one of my favourite memories from our day.
