Tell me about the beginning!
Cristian and I grew up together in our hometown of Wollongong. We went through school together and were friends from the age of 16. Life took us in different directions for a while, until we reconnected at a mutual friend’s party when we were 22. And the rest was history really.
When and where did you get engaged?
We were on a weekend away in Apollo Bay after the last big COVID lockdown at the end of 2021. Cristian organised a surprise picnic on the beach and popped the big question. We drank champagne and ate cheese for the next hour whilst we called our closest friends and family to share the fantastic news!
What style/theme have you chosen for your Wedding Day?
Classic Tuscan theme.
What are you most looking forward to on the day?
The moment we lock eyes for the first time when Jess walks down the aisle. The anticipation and excitement in the Chapel will be electric. We can’t wait to share that moment together and with our nearest and dearest.
Be organised! Don’t be scared to invest in a wedding planner… it’s worth the money!
