Tell me about your The Beginning!
We met on Tinder when Ben was living in Adelaide and Andrea in Melbourne. Ben was in Melbourne for a conference. Whilst we did not meet this weekend, we stayed in touch until we met in person 3 months later. We first met in person at a gig at the Corner Hotel to see a band (Bayside). We continued a long-distance relationship until Ben finally moved to Melbourne the following year.
When and where did you get engaged?
We got engaged at Mollydooker winery in McLaren Vale in Feb 2020.
What style/theme have you chosen for your Wedding Day?
Relaxed cocktail wedding with grazing table and lawn games
What are you most looking forward to on the day?
Celebrating and having a big party with all our friends and family.
Lock in the big ticket items first then slowly chip away at the smaller things. Don’t plan a wedding during a pandemic, if you do, try stay positive and try to keep planning. Try organise suits a few months before the wedding to allow time for tailoring.
