Lorne Wedding – Matt & Jade
One of our own Team Members ‘Jade Walton’ another of our photographers at Lens to Life was married in February this year in Lorne. Below is a little more about their big day and how they met:
Q. When and how did you meet? And what were your first thoughts?
A. Matt and I met behind the bar at the Pavilion. I worked in the bar and Matt was my manager. That was 12 years ago.
Q. When and how did the proposal take place and how did you feel?
A. Matt proposed in the drive way of our home. We were leaving for the airport late one night and as we were pulling out it felt as though Matt ran over something. He sprung out the car “to have a look” and before I knew it he was on 1 knee with a ring in his hand. I cried, not even sure if I said yes straight away.
Q. Where are you going on your honeymoon? Please include dates of departure & return.
A. We are heading to Thailand, Vietnam & Cambodia, can’t wait!!
Q. Where is your ceremony and reception being held and why did you choose these venues?
A. Both the ceremony and reception are being held at Allenvale in Lorne. It took months to find the perfect location but as soon as we arrived at Allenvale we knew its where we wanted to get married. The property is stunning. Its only 3 mins from the centre of Lorne & a million miles from anywhere.
Q. What does your wedding dress look like? Please give a detailed description and also include any accessories including jewellery and shoes.
