Chris & Clare’s coastal wedding was held at Clifftop in Smith’s Beach on 8th April 2017. We like to get to know our couples a little better, so we ask them some questions about how they met, their wedding day and their future plans together. Below is Chris & Claire’s response:
Q. When and how did you meet? And what were your first thoughts?
A. Chris and Clare met in 2014 at their good friend Tess’s 30th Birthday in Ocean Grove. Tess, along with their friend Denise, had grand plans to set the couple up. Tess’s failed attempts at subtlety enabled Clare to realise something odd was going on! Clare was initially interested in Chris because he had a nice flannelette shirt on and could bounce a footy (turns out he actually had no idea about AFL). Chris was initially interested in Clare because she apparently could tell good jokes and was easy to get along with, chilled and talkative
Q. When and how did the proposal take place and how did you feel?
A. The proposal took place at Smith’s beach in Phillip Island. Clare had mentioned to Chris that if he were to ever propose, he should do it when no one else was around. So, whilst on the beach, Chris started acting very strangely whilst literally waiting for every man and his dog to leave the beach. When he finally proposed, Clare was so excited she forgot what finger the ring was supposed to go on.
Q. Where are you going on your honeymoon?
A. No plans have been set in stone yet. We plan on heading to the Whitsundays early next year.
Q. What are your future plans together?
A. We plan on upgrading to a larger house later this year and starting a family at some point. We would also love to travel a bit more together.
Q. Where is your ceremony and reception being held and why did you choose these venues?
A. Both the ceremony and reception are taking place at Clifftop
in Smith’s Beach. Clare has been going to Phillip Island since she was young. Chris also proposed to Clare whilst on a mini holiday at Clifftop. Clifftop is such a beautiful venue so the location seemed a perfect choice.
Q. What does your wedding dress look like? Please give a detailed description and also include any accessories including jewellery and shoes.
A. The dress is an Anna Campbell fit and flare ivory dress. There is a scoped neckline with plenty of beading. From the waist down, the dress is made of lace. The shoes are flat with plenty of beading and jewels.
Q. Do you have a Theme or style to your wedding? And if so, what is it?
A. No theme. Just a relaxed, beach feel.
Q. Hair & Makeup – please describe what your hair and makeup is like and who the suppliers are.
A. Hair and make-up will be done by Ally De La Rosa. Hair will be mainly up with a bun to the side.
Q. Who is the person conducting your service? (celebrant, minister, priest etc).
Q. Florist – what are your flowers like & who is the supplier?

Q. Wedding Favours & Cake – what are they like and who is the supplier?
