Stephanie + Mitch

How did you meet?

Mitch and I met when we were 12 years old. He was the new kid at our Primary School and when I saw his blonde tips and shell necklace, I knew he was something special haha! We became friends and had a great friendship throughout high school. I had the biggest crush on him and finally, at a friend’s 18th we shared our first kiss! 2 years later we are married, and it has been the most magical journey.

How did you know they were the one?

I knew Mitch was the one pretty early on in our relationship. We shared the same values, we wanted similar things and we just had so much fun together. Mitch always makes me feel safe and calm and can make me laugh like no other. I am my happiest when I am with him and I could never imagine my life without him.

What are your three favourite attributes of your partner?

Mitch is so determined, something I really admire about him is his ability to never give up, even when times are hard, he keeps pushing through to achieve his goals. His sense of Humour is outstanding, and he is probably one of the funniest people I know, he makes me laugh every day and brings so much joy to everyone around him. Mitch is so thoughtful and is always there for his family friends, nothing is too big of an ask for the ones he loves. Oh, and did I mention he is extremely handsome.

Who proposed and how? 

Mitch proposed to me on my birthday at Darook Park in Cronulla. It was just the two of us going for what I thought was an afternoon swim before we got ready to go out for dinner. It was so perfect, just the two of us sitting on a rock by the water. I thought Mitch was reaching for the sunscreen in his backpack however he pulled out a ring and before I knew it, he was down on one knee and asking me to marry him. At that moment it was just me and him and nothing else mattered. We sat by the water for an hour soaking up every second of the incredible love bubble before returning back to reality and celebrating with family. 

What was the best moment for you at the wedding?

There were so many incredible moments for me on our wedding day, it truly is the best day of our lives. One of my standout moments was when I was walking down the aisle and saw Mitch. In that moment all my nerves went away, and I just felt so incredibly happy and lucky that I was about to marry him.

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

I first saw the Sienna Tulle on another beautiful bride on Instagram. I saved it to my favourites and no matter how many other dresses I looked at I always found myself drawn to that one. It was the first dress I tried on and, at that moment, I knew it was the perfect dress for me.

What were your favourite details?

I have so many! I wore my mums’ veil with my beautiful dress which was so special to me as both she and my sister wore it on their wedding days. The flowers were amazing, I loved everything about them, and I still can’t stop talking about them! The dresses worn by my bride tribe were a big hit, I wanted them to be dressed in different dresses but similar tonnes. It wasn’t an easy task but seeing them all together on the day was amazing, they all looked stunning!

What advice would you tell other brides?

To take in every single moment, it is the most magical day but my gosh it goes so quick!
