Ellie + Mark

How did you meet?

Mark is from Adelaide and I am from Sydney’s northern beaches… We met back in 2008 when we both started University at Macquarie studying chiropractic! Little did I know in 5 short years I would leave everything behind and move to Adelaide for the love of my life!

When did you know they were the one?

We were going to do long distance for 2 years after graduation but the day he left I couldn’t look at him without bursting I to tears… that was when I knew I couldn’t do life without him!

What are your three favourite attributes of your partner

My 3 favorite attributes of my husband would be he’s handsome AF! Incredibly strong and driven and that together we compliment one another in a perfectly imperfect way!

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

I tried my dress on in the Adelaide boutique and bought it straight away the lace… the low back and the detailing was incredible and it was so comfy i wanted something i could dance the night away in!

Who proposed and how?

He proposed to me on our first day in Hawaii, we woke up super early and did this trek up a mountain on the north shore of Oahu. We were the first ones there and he asked if we should set up the stand and get a photo with the background…. too my surprise he put it on record and videoed the engagement…COMPLETE SURPRISE!

Where did you go to Honeymoon?

We just got back from our honeymoon in southern New Zealand. So incredibly beautiful! And yes… There were More mountain hikes haha
