Talia + Adam

How did you meet?

We worked as bartenders together at a local pub and met on my first shift.

When did you know they were the one? 

After being together for a couple of years I was so comfortable and he felt like my home. I couldn’t see my life with anyone else. It’s been 7 years now and I still feel the same.

What are your three favourite attributes of your partner?

His kind heart, his passion for the things he loves and his humour (don’t tell him I said that though).

Who proposed and how?

He proposed to me on the day that we got our keys to the house we built together. We walked in for the first time (he had actually snuck in earlier that morning without me knowing, to set up) there was rose petals all down the entry hall and champagne and I still had no clue. I turned around and he got down on one knee and popped the question.

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

I saw Archie on my Instagram explore page just after she was first released, probably about 3-4 months before we got engaged and I remembered sending it to my friend and saying “this is the dress I will wear”. When it came time to actually go dress shopping, she was the first dress I tried on and I knew that nothing else compared.

What was the best moment for you at your wedding? 

We actually eloped! Covid ruined our plans and it all became too stressful so we canned the big wedding and just had us and each of our parents and had a beautiful little ceremony. It was so special because not having a big crowd made it intimate and allowed us to be so vulnerable with each other.

What were your favourite details?

All of it was so special but we went to One Tree Hill at Maleny for our photos and the sunset was to die for.

What advice would you tell other brides?

People always say don’t buy the first dress that you try on. But if you love it and you know its the one, do it!

Any standout vendors?

YES! all of them were so amazing. Our celebrant @sommersaunder_celebrancy was the absolute BEST, she made our ceremony so perfect. She also helped us coordinate a lot of details and is an all round amazing person.
