Jess + Jesse

How did you meet?

We met through friends.

When did you know they were the one? 

I knew after he met my family.

What are your three favourite attributes of your partner?

Hardworking – Jesse Is the most hardworking person I know (besides my dad). His cheeky smile – I knew I was in trouble as soon as I saw his cheeky smile and he makes me laugh.

Who proposed and how?

Jesse proposed after 9 years. His mum and my sister set up a beautiful picnic on Trigg beach. Jesse was so nervous he took me to a down the wrong flight of stairs so had to make up a story about forgetting something in the car so he could lead me in the right direction.

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

Brides by design – I fell in love with two Made with Love dresses; the Tommy and Tommy crepe, I couldn’t decide! Then I had the idea to make it into one! I wore the Tommy dress for the ceremony and then was able to take the skirt off so was left with the Tommy crepe for the reception, I had the best of both!

What was the best moment for you at your wedding? 

Walking down the aisle to Jesse and seeing all the most important people in your lives there just for you. It’s very overwhelming and something I’ll never forget.

What were your favourite details?

We planned a surprise wedding, our guests thought it was our engagement party! I loved seeing their surprised faces filled with joy and excitement!

We also made a beautiful white Prosecco pong table for our guests to play. Team bride & team groom! Tp & co tent was everything and our florist nailed the boho, beach’s vibe that we asked for.

What advice would you tell other brides?

At some point in the night, step back with your husband and look around and really take it all in! It is something you have always dreamed of so be there in that moment!
