Wedding Date: 9th March 2019
How did you meet?
Introduced by mutual work colleagues who knew we were both keen photographers.
Who proposed and how?
Clive couldn’t wait to propose and burst in to the bathroom whilst Karen was in the shower – busily washing her hair! There were tears, but mainly due to shampoo in the eyes lol. We were engaged exactly 3 months after meeting.
your wedding dress shopping experience:
My first experience was so deflating. I had made an appointment at a bridal boutique in Sydney but no one even acknowledged my presence. Once they realised that I was there for my appointment I was given 20 minutes and felt very rushed. I then made an appointment at Marry Me Bridal, Mosman. This experience was completely different, and the staff listened to me and helped me try different styles of dresses to see what suited me. I was able to find exactly what I had been looking for. They were lovely and made me feel like a bride!
