Elle and Alex approached me as soon as they got engaged. A great surprise for me as Alex and I used to play football together when were young lads.
Alex and Elle first starting dating just out of high school, and he wasted no time in proposing! Only took 10 years and a sparatic last minute trip to Dubai!
He organised the most romantic dinner Elle could ever imagine - so I she kinda knew something was up. The beauty was that because we were overseas we could enjoy that moment for so much longer.
Their wedding. The first venue they visited was the only one visited - it was perfect and exactly fit their wedding plans. "Fernbank Farm was our dream venue in every way possible. Gorgeous grounds, beautiful marquees, amazing hosts and to top it off had accomodation on site. We just wanted our wedding to be a fun weekend with friends and family - and that's what we had! "
Elle, not shy of hard work and organising designs, wanted the full experience of planning a wedding and we were on tight budget. Their invitations, gifts, flowers, decorations, games, name cards and more were made and created by herself and friends.
"The day itself was a whirlwind, everyone tells you that it goes so fast, and they don't lie!! Before I knew it it was time to see my groom! As soon as I got close to the aisle and saw Alex standing there I couldn't hold my emotions in. I cried the entire way down the aisle! Out of happiness!"
"My favourite part was when I saw Alex and our eyes locked - from that moment no one else existed. I felt like it was just him and I saying out loud all the reasons why we love each other. It was the most magical Moment. Even the sun came out after hours of rain!"
Any words of advice Elle+Alex?
"Haha - don't let anyone tell you, you plan your own wedding and do it in less than 1 year! We did it in 4months and I loved every moment of the process!"
