Susy + Jono

How did you meet?

We were set up by a mutual friend who thought we would have alot in common. I had never felt as comfortable and happy to have met someone knew. I felt as though we had known each other before and I instantly felt safe and content with him.

When did you know they were the one?

Jono has always being a very attentive and caring partner, always willing to support me through my ups and downs, willing to have fun and always able to make me smile. He bought me an old polaroid camera that I really wanted as a surprise a couple of months into the relationship and had ‘pre-shot’ photos placed inside. As I clicked the shutter multiple photos came out of him holding a sign telling me he loved me and I knew he was the one! It was the most thoughtful and sweetest thing anyone had ever done for me.

What are your three favourite attributes of your partner

His smile and quirky humour that always makes me laugh, his motivation to always try new things whether it be gardening, cooking or exploring NSW and the kindness he always shows towards me, his family and all of his friends!

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

I had followed Made With Love for a couple of months and had loved the style and movement of all of the dresses! Once Carla had come out I knew instantly that I wanted to try it on! I loved the intricacy of the 3D lace, the length and details of the train and the way it hugs the body. As soon as I put it on I knew this was the dress!

Who proposed and how?

Both of us love adventure and exploring new places! Jono proposed when we went to Mudgee in October 2018 for a road trip. We stopped at a beautiful field to take some photos with a polaroid photo he had setup with a remote. He accidentally pressed the remote and ‘took a photo’ and he asked me to put it in my pocket to develop. We took a couple more photos of ourselves in the field and he also placed it in my pocket. After about 5 minutes he told me to check the photos. The first two hadn’t finished developing but the third photo (which was the photo he ‘accidentally took’ at the beginning) was a pre-shot photo he had placed into the camera before hand. It was a photo he took of himself holding a sign that read  “Will you marry me?” I looked up in shock and he was down on one knee with a ring! All the while taking multiple photos with the polaroid capturing my reaction!

Where did you go to Honeymoon?

Jono and I went to Koh Samui in Thailand! We wanted to escape the cold of Sydney and explore a warm country we had never been to before.
