Emily & Haydn

How did you meet?

Haydn & I met at a local café in our rural home town.

When did you know they were the one?

I knew Haydn was the one when he first met my family. It was like he had been a part of our family for years & I knew after our first overseas adventure that I couldn’t imagine a life without him.

What’s your three favorite attributes of your partner?

I love Haydn’s honesty, his ability to talk to anyone & his love and determination for creating the best life possible.

Who proposed and how?

Haydn proposed on top of the volcano in Santorini Greece in July 2017. We were at the end of our Europe getaway and having a blast in Greece island hoping with some of our now closest friends, when we climbed to the top of the volcano (in the rain) Haydn asked me to marry him, it was the most amazing surprise! I am a bit of a control freak so the fact that he had surprised me made the moment even more amazing! My parents who Haydn had told he would propose to me in the South of France the first week into our trip, were thinking he had changed his mind and it was all off. They were over the moon to receive a phone call from us that night with the news!

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

I had been looking for a ‘simple’ but elegant wedding dress for months prior to finding the Made With Love website. After scrolling on the website for a week, and living rurally, I decided to take a day off work and travel to Sydney to try on the dress I had been looking at! When I got to the boutique and tried on the dress I thought would be the one, it didn’t quite suit my body shape so I decided to try on a few different styles (I don’t usually wear a lot of tight fitting dresses but thought I would try it on anyway) it was then that I fell in love with the Jessie Dress!
