Monica & Stephen

How did you meet?

Stephen and I met at the Bank Hotel in Newtown.

When did you know they was the one?

I knew Stephen was the one when we arrived for our first date to ‘all you can eat hot dogs’ at the Soda Factory in Surry Hills.

What was your first holiday together?

Stephen and I share an insatiable love of adventure. Our first holiday together was in the beautiful Cook Islands where we snorkeled, sailed and hiked the days away. At night we’d excitedly plan our next adventure over cocktails!

Who proposed and how?

Stephen proposed after a long hike in the pouring rain on a cliff side overlooking Lake Como in Italy. Although I was soaked and grumpy, my mood quickly brightened and I said ‘yes’!

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

I fell in love with the Georgie on the MWL website. I was instantly smitten by the sophisticated, yet sexy silhouette. The Georgie was the 3rd MWL dress I tried on at my fitting and I instantly knew I didn’t need to try on any more!


Where did you go to Honeymoon?

Stephen and I honeymooned in romantic south of France.
