Tell me about your The Beginning!

We met in June 2016 at a friends birthday party at the Commerical Hotel.
Whilst I was drinking, I saw Carl speaking to a few friends and he looked like a famous celebrity or a movie star. I had to know who he was do I said to him “Im wondering if your single cos I think your really good looking and attractive” Carl blushed a little and replied “Im flattered but unfortunately Im not” So I was embarassed I kinda ran off to the bar and never saw him again. Carl has said he wanted to buy me a drink but he never saw me again.

8 months later, Carl catches up with Alishia (the birthday party we went to) he had broken up with his longterm girlfriend a few months prior and was unsuccessful in online dating. Then Carl had thought about the girl who approached him at her birthday and he asked her “Who was that girl from your party? She was wearing braids” After Alishia shows him a bunch of photos of her girlfriends and Carl points to the photo of the girl “That’s her, whats her name?” It was Jessica. After that, Alishia rings up Jessica and screams down the phone ‘JESS ARE YOU SINGLE?? THERE’S SOMEONE LOOKING FOR YOU” She screamed excitedly. I did say I was single and I was open to dating again. Alishia soon sent me a photo of Carl and I immediately recognized him as the guy who rejected me 8 months prior.
I soon got into contact with Carl and we started dating soon after that.
Our first date was at Cold Rock Creamery.

When and where did you get engaged?

We went overseas for the first time. We went to New Caledonia and stayed in Noumea. It was gorgeous. In October 2019, we went out to a beautiful french dinner at the restaurant on the waterfront of Anse Vata Beach. Afterwards, we went for a night walk among the beach, staring at the stars in the sky. We then walked onto the Anse Vata pier all the way out to the ocean, we stood there gazing at the sky and looking out the oceans, we were loving this moment. Carl then started to tell me how much he loved me and how much he wanted to spend the rest of his life with me, then got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. I was so shocked and happy i was starting to step backwards and until carl pulled me back as I had almost fell into the ocean. I of course said yes.

What style/theme/colours have you chosen for your Wedding Day?

Sage green, white, pink, beige, its a rustic wedding with a mix of nerdiness. There will be a mix of Star Wars and Legend of Zelda. We are a weird couple and we want to goof around a lot and not take anything seriously

What are you most looking forward to on the day?

Being with Carl and our family and friends and having fun with everyone
