How did you meet? 

We were introduced by a mutual friend at the Bowery Bar in Fortitude Valley.

Tell us about the proposal…

Oak Alley Plantation, New Orleans

Key Styling Inspiration 

Walking down the aisle an inch above the water was an incredible experience.  We were married on a floating floor in the middle of the swimming pool overlooking one of Bali’s premier coastlines.a1e0b383c24d19546f249840425fe559dabd145c95fc9a1e006fae470e4b539dcf5a88d042b071ac20437e9b017b65a6ee7503992ce925892674d74aa1a01138869a13828cb7c65e63e9b812ae7e62a9

What was the funniest moment of the day?

That awkward nervousness as we load testing the brand new floating floor with 22 people fully dressed on the day of the wedding.

What was the special memory of the day?

With one waiter per guest, I knew the day was going to be something special. From the Michelin Star food to the beachfront location. My celebrant was my brother. He was appointed by the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster especially for our day.2375ea4fc2cc6d50971ce50f3f7d3c4b22ca14fbb41b8039c4d84286826847e8c1074c7eec29a1cc3ece5643958aedccc7583b86299d5e468b1bf8ca861e9f1c46ecfa921bdb2dee9810ebcdf7ab3193
