Tell me about the beginning!
We first met in 2014 when we were put in the same group in uni and we started hanging out in a friend group after class. We quickly realised we had a lot in common and we always ended up talking for hours whilst walking aimlessly around Adelaide cbd. One day, at the end of final exams that year, we went on a hike together which would come to be our first date. It was Steffi’s idea and neither of us knew what we were getting ourselves into…8 hours of bushwalking and 2 bad sunburns later we both came to the realisation we liked nature and each other.
When and where did you get engaged?
We got engaged in July 2022 during a trip to Europe. At this stage in our relationship, Steffi had some expectation that we would get engaged, so to throw her off the scent, I told her that I wouldn’t do it in Europe because I was afraid of pickpockets. We were in the Italian Dolomites near the end of our trip and I had a sunrise spot called Passo Giau in mind. That morning I dragged her out of bed at 4:30am (we do like to chase sunrises/sunsets so this isnt too uncommon) and we drove to the spot. Surprisingly, we were alone and I proposed to her looking over the Dolomites as the sun came up.

Try to start planning early, so you can pick the vendors you like. Try to have fun during the process, it can be stressful at times, but working as a team with your partner to plan something like this can be very rewarding!
