Molly + Tom

How did you meet?

My husband, Tom, and I met through mutual friends when we were 15 years old. We caught the bus home from school together everyday and have been together ever since!

When did you know they were the one?

He’s always been the one, I think I knew straight away. He’s just integrated into my family so easily, everything felt so natural.

What are your three favourite attributes of your partner?

His sense of humour, his incredible intelligence and his work ethic.

Who proposed and how?

He proposed to me in Jan last year. He recreated our first date from when we were 15. We had a lunch date by the river and then climbed a tree in the park, and that’s when he proposed. I didn’t want to climb the tree because we’re not 15 anymore and I was in a very short dress, but he insisted! It was very sweet and sentimental.

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

The Gold Coast MWL boutique. I’d always dreamed of having a MWL dress ever since I saw the Riley Luxe, and when Harlow was released I fell in love. I am obsessed with all things MWL so it was such a dream that it felt and looked as good as I’d always hoped. I love the neckline, the back, the lace with the sparkle- everything about it!

What was the best moment for you at your wedding? 

The ceremony! I spent so much time planning the party that I didn’t put much thought into the ceremony (I had a beautiful celebrant who did all of the planning), so when the time came I was so surprised at how much I loved it. It’s just so special to see that all of those people showed up to celebrate our love!

What were your favourite details?

I loved my shoes from Forever Soles, and my earrings from St Valentine. I also loved that Tom chose a beautiful fragrance with a customised label (Le Labo), it made it all the more special.

What advice would you tell other brides?

Don’t compromise on the things that are important to you!

Any standout vendors?
