How did he propose?
After 4.5 years together Jo proposed on July 3rd 2017 on the coldest, wettest and windiest day ever! He insisted we go hiking to Cora Lynn Falls in Lorne, we had hiked there early on in our relationship and had loved it, so picturesque and tranquil!. I was not really in the mood to get my exercise on, but it was well worth it once we reached the waterfall, we were alone when he got down on one knee and presented me with a beautiful round solitaire from Paul Bram!
What was your goal for your wedding / what was the most important aspect to you?
Our goal for the wedding was for it to be modern, relaxed and super fun-like a big party-safe to say there were a few sore heads as all our guests took advantage of the delicious wine at the estate.
How did you choose Le Rose for your wedding?
My Maid of Honour organised the PJ sets that the bridal party wore for the morning of the wedding. We wore the Alexandra cotton sets (the girls wore pink and I wore white). We had ours personalized aswell, they were just so beautiful. I was always thought I'd wear a robe, but the pjs looked so comfy and light, which was perfect as it was rather warm on the day.
Were there funny moments from the day?
There was a funny moment while wearing my white personalized PJ set when I spilt beetroot dip on my top! I was so hungry and the girls were keen to pop open the Veuve, but I was adament I needed to eat something before having any bubbles as I had barely eaten all day due to being so busy!
What wisdom or advice can you share to other Le Rose Brides?
Best advice for Le Rose brides, select what you will be comfortable in and definetly don't eat beetroot dip!
