Kelly + Tom

How did you meet?

We met in our hometown (Adelaide) 3 years ago. Tom was living in New Zealand but was back home visiting his family when we met.

When did you know they were the one?

Although we lived in different countries, I knew there was something different about Tom and that, against all odds, this would work. I knew he was the one when he kept making the effort to fly back to Adelaide to see me and I found myself missing him after every visit. After a year of dating long distance, I moved to New Zealand to live with him and we have never looked back.

What are your three favourite attributes of your partner

My three favourite things about Tom is that he is genuine, selfless and caring.

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

A friend of mine had a MWL dress and I knew that’s where I had to start my search for the perfect dress. I went to the Adelaide boutique and when the lovely girl suggested Sienna with tulle, I tried it on and knew straight away that it was the one. This dress felt very “me” – I love that it is feminine, flowy and pretty, has lovely intricate beadwork on the bodice and straps and just felt so elegant. I was amazed that I had found my dream dress in 20 minutes – the second dress I had ever tried on!

Who proposed and how?

Tom proposed while we were in Africa on a safari. We were having dinner on a beautiful private deck, listening to lions roar in the distance when he got down on one knee and popped the question!

Where did you go to Honeymoon?

We went to Italy for our honeymoon (Rome, Sorrento, Tuscany and Venice)
