Patrick & Sarah were married on 2nd April 2016 at the Davey’s Bay Yacht Club in Mt Eliza. We like to get to know our brides and grooms so below are some details on how they met and their planned future together.
Q. When and how did you meet? And what were your first thoughts?
A. We met at Cruze nightclub in Mornington 8 years ago. We were both having a great drunk time out with our friends. My sister and I bumped into Pat and his friends on purpose and we seemed to hit it off straight away. The night is a hazy to both of us.
I remember his lovely big smile and Pat remembers me being easy to talk to.
Q. When and how did the proposal take place and how did you feel?
A. Pat proposed to me on NYE 2014 in the backyard at home. I really love our home and initially wanted to get married at home, but couldn’t fit everyone in our yard!
Q. Where are you going on your honeymoon?
A. We went to Ocean Grove for a few nights after our big day which was very relaxing. We are now busy planning a big adventure starting in South Africa and finishing in Hawaii.
Q. What are your future plans together (e.g. buying a house/starting a family)
A. We plan on having lots of holidays in the next couple of years before starting a family. We would also love to get more furchildren!
Q. Where is your ceremony and reception being held and why did you choose these venues?
A. Our ceremony was held on the beach out the front of Davey’s Bay Yacht Club
in Mt Eliza. Our reception was held inside the yacht club. We chose this venue because the views over the bay are just gorgeous! We feel that it was a bit of a hidden gem that our guests would enjoy.
Q. What does your wedding dress look like? Please give a detailed description and also include any accessories including jewellery and shoes.
