Shay + Chris

How did you meet?

We meet through mutual friends on a night out, both of which were in our bridal party.

When did you know they were the one?

I think it would have had to be when, as much as I tried to deny it, I couldn’t find a single thing about Chris I didn’t like, he was literally my perfect.

What are your three favourite attributes of your partner

Very in touch with his emotions, one of the most caring people I’ve ever met and he, like me, is super affectionate.

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

Sadie was one of the first dresses I tried on at a little shop on the central coast, I then went to lots of other stores and tried lots of dresses on but came back to it at the MWL st Ives store and knew it was the dress that made me most comfortable and my sisters cried each time I tried it on.

Who proposed and how?

Chris proposed at a waterfront where I grew up and also the place where my Mothers wake was held, so it was a very special spot for us.

What was your honeymoon like?

We did a road trip for a month with our dog, from Melbourne to Noosa and everywhere in between.
