How Did You and Angus Meet?

“At Roseworthy College (university) – we were both doing the same agricultural degree and he was in the year above me. We were both off of farms from the Eyre Peninsula but had never crossed paths!”

The Proposal

“After a homely pub meal in a little English village 9.5 years later on a trip to the UK – we had spent the day visiting my Mum’s hometown in Yorkshire and had also gone to see the church my grandparents were married in. It was very special and sentimental.”

Planning The Wedding

“We really wanted a ‘weddingy wedding’ with a bit of rustic thrown in. Our theme ended up being ‘white, greenery and wood’, which all came together really well.”

The Dress

“It was exactly what I had always dreamed of, every photo I (and my Mum) had saved before shopping was exactly the same – I just never knew I would find the perfect dress so quickly. Mum and I walked into the first store, picked this one off the rack and I tried it on and it was precisely what I wanted, I felt like such a princess (and it was the first time that it hit me that I was actually getting married!). Mum told me to shop around just in case (even though 30+ years ago she tried on one dress and bought it then and there!), so we visited 3 other stores, then retired to think about it overnight. I went back to the first shop the next morning and bought my dream dress – the first one I had tried on!”

The Details

“My Mum and Dad did an amazing job – It was very special Mum and Dad resurrected our old wooden farm sign (they had sold our family farm the year before) that was created by my late Pop into our ‘Welcome to the Wedding of Angus & Jessica’ sign. Mum did the cake and dessert bar for us and Dad helped out by cutting wooden rounds and making fancy stands for all the decadent sweets that Mum had cooked.”

The Best Part of the Day

“That is so tricky, I spent the whole day with a grin from ear-to-ear on my face. There was a moment just after the ceremony, before the photos and after everyone had congratulated us that I paused, looked around and thought to myself ‘my heart is full…everyone I love in the world is here to celebrate us, that is unbelievably amazing, and I have just married my best friend, what a perfect day’ – it was a bit hard to believe that it was happening.”

Words of Wisdom

“To enjoy the WHOLE ride, because it goes way too quickly. Plan ahead so that you don’t stress on the day and can just relax and relish in everything that is happening around you. Don’t sweat on the small stuff or get caught up in the minor details – remember that the day is all about marrying the person you want to spend the rest of your life with, and everything else will work out!”
