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

? I fell in love with the dress Sadie when MWL posted it on there Instagram page. I had to try it on. We were coming up to Queensland in a few weeks for a week, so I contacted the Goldcoast boutique and I thought if I can get in to try this dress it would be amazing. They got back to me straight away and I got an appointment. I was so in love when I tried it on. Was meant to be.

Who proposed and how?

Scotty proposed when I was 22 weeks pregnant with Luca. We were on our baby moon in Hong Kong. We went to Disneyland and it was an extremely hot and humid day. Apparently took months of organising with Disneyland and I had no idea. I even got a badge to wear when we arrived and I was like why do I need to wear a badge? He convinced me it was because I was pregnant. But it was for staff to know while we were lining up for over an hour in the heat to get a Disney photo that Scotty was going to propose. I was so close to to giving up on the photo, too long and hot. Scotty went and brought a umbrella, water, food and fanned me to keep me there. Here I am getting treated like a princess while Scotty was a hot sweaty mess. Once we got to front of the line everyone was fluffing over us. We got a photo together then the photographer asked me for a photo on my own, which I thought why would i want one on my own. Then Scotty got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. After that we got personalized hats and were included in the Disney parade.

Where did you go to Honeymoon?

We went to (Europe) Spain, Paris, Cinque Terre, Sri Lanka
