Beau & Lucy’s San Remo Wedding was held at the Foreshore overlooking the ocean on Saturday 1 March 2014, followed by a backyard wedding at Beau’s parents house. Here are a few words from our gippsland bride on how they met and about their wedding day.
Q. When and how did you meet? And what were your first thoughts?
A. We met when we were 15 and 16 at high school and through football/netball. It’s still debatable who said hello to who first….
Q. When and how did the proposal take place and how did you feel?
A. Beau proposed to me in our apartment as a surprise when I got home from university. He had managed to buy the ring and hide it for weeks (not an easy feat when I had rarely left him alone for months!). Beau had arranged for the florist downstairs to bring up a box of petals which he put along the hall while he waited at the end. Even though we always knew we would be together, it was definitely a surprise! Very happy and exciting!
Q. Where are you going on your honeymoon?
A. We had planned a trip to the UK for July which has become our unofficial honeymoon.
Q. What are your future plans together?
A. We are both still studying and are excited to start exploring our longer term work options over the next few years. Having children has always been a big part of our future plans, which we will hopefully be in a position to to start thinking about soon! We are also keen to squeeze as much traveling and sport in as we can as well.
Q. Where is your ceremony and reception being held and why did you choose these venues?
A. We are having our ceremony at the Lions park on the foreshore in San Remo. This has always been a special spot for us, especially Beau. We love just sitting and looking over the water at sunset. The reception is in Beau’s parent’s backyard. We picked this spot because of the beautiful outlook and because it will allow us to have a personal wedding. It is also conveniently across the road from our high school where we met.
Q. What does your wedding dress look like? Please give a detailed description and also include any accessories including jewellery and shoes.
A. I am very lucky to be able to wear my grandmother’s wedding dress from the 1950s. It is a simple satin strapless dress. My shoe, jewellery and head piece are from Jeanette Maree in Armadale. W
Q. Do you have a Theme or style to your wedding? And if so, what is it?
A. We have gone with a subtle vintage theme to go with my dress
