Ellena + Matt

How did you meet?

I met my partner at work- I’m a primary school teacher and he is a teachers aide. We locked eyes across the playground and haven’t spent a second apart since.

When did you know they were the one?

We became inseparable instantly. It took a while for us both to acknowledge that we were in love but we knew instantly we never wanted to be apart again.

Where did you fall in love with your dress and why?

I wanted a simple dress that wouldn’t date. I’m very short so was attracted to a simple design that wasn’t lacey. I drowned in all other dresses I tried on.

Who proposed and how?

Matt proposed to me when we were walking our puppies on the beach at sunrise. My favourite thing to do. He had grand plans but the sun didn’t rise and it rained haha. Didn’t matter though.

Where did you go to Honeymoon?

We went to Angourie on our honeymoon so we could take our dogs. We are going to Thailand in the upcoming holidays as honeymoon #2.
