Molly + Mitch

How did you meet?

Mitch and I talked online for a few months after Mitch showed interest in me through mutual friends. We were 15 years old and lived 3 hours apart. We spend hours each night on the phone together. We had so much in common and just instantly clicked. One day I was in class and there was a knock at the classroom door. “Molly, there’s someone here for you”. The teacher said. In front of my whole class, Mitch stood there with a guitar in hand. “Happy birthday” he said with a big grin. I was SHOOK. Little did I know, Mitch decided enough was enough. He jumped on a bus, to a town he had never heard of, to hang out with a girl he had never actually met. It was like a scene from a love movie. The next part was convincing my mum to let this stranger stay at our house.. luckily she was ok with it and so We both took the week off school and just hung out together and so it began, our love story!

When did you know they were the one?

Mitch and I then separated when we were 18. We both wanted to experience different things. 3 years went by and we dropped out of connection with one another and both had other relationships.
We ran into one another one day and got talking. It had happened that within the same fortnight of one another, both our relationships had ended. We decided to hang out and catch up each other up on our lives over those years. We picked up right where we had left off. We both realised that we had never stopped loving one another and we knew the universe bought us back to each other for a reason. We eventually got engaged 3 years later and married not long after!

What are your three favourite attributes of your partner?

Mitch has such a soft and nurturing soul, he is always there for his friends and family.

We get along SO well. He makes me laugh every single day.

He can be so determined and will work so hard for things he wants.

Who proposed and how?

Mitch proposed. We had finally got over to South Australia after being separated from my family for 12 months due to the covid border restrictions. We had planned to spend the weekend on the river with everyone skiing. I’m passionate about the river so he thought it would be an amazing opportunity to propose in the boat or while we were skiing. However, the weather was SO bad that we were stuck inside. He really wanted me to be able to celebrate with my family so the only chance he could get was when we could go for a walk together. I wanted to go down a slide in the nearby playground so I dragged him over and there it happened, at the top of a playground in Gail force winds and pouring rain. Haha He is so embarrassed about this story but I think it is still so sweet!

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

I found my dress at my first dress try on at Adelaide Bridal Collective. I had no idea what I was looking for or what style suited me. Then the lady bought in the Ryder Crepe. It was about the 6th dress and I knew I needed it. It was so simple, yet elegant and timeless. It really complimented my curves and I just felt comfortable and so beautiful in it.

What was the best moment for you at your wedding? 

Walking out and standing at the top of the aisle with Dad. He stopped and took a second to take it all in. Seeing everyone we loved in the one spot. Everyone taking a moment for me. Then when I locked eyes with Mitch as I walked down. Seeing the love and admiration in his eyes for me was the best feeling in the world. Hold hands as my dad presented me then saying our vows. I loved it all!

What were your favourite details? 

Our venue was beautiful! My favourite detail to the wedding. I had it at Longmeadow Estate Tydrenarra. A private 7 bedroom 3 bathroom country estates. Surrounded by the most beautiful lawn, gardens and paddocks. We had a large Hampton marquee where the band, bar and sign was, but then we festoon lighting, wine barrels and beautiful shade umbrellas which made the most beautiful garden wedding. We also had a big charcuterie board and all you can eat woodfire pizza

What advice would you tell other brides?

Take it all in. The day goes SO fast. Make sure to just stop and breath. Make sure to have 1:1 time with your partner somewhere quite to really just appreciate and be in the moment together.
Eat the food, drink the drinks and dance. Don’t worry about catching up with friends and family you haven’t seen for a while. Those meaningful conversations can wait until the next day. Party and celebrate your day!
