Tell me about your The Beginning!
We met at work in 2010. I had just moved to the finance team at Flight Centre Head Office in St Kilda Rd (where Matt already worked). Although he worked for a different diversion, he used to hang around with the finance team a lot because he knew that we got a lot of free drinks. My first impressions of him were not great, the very first time I met him he was telling a group of people about his weekend conquests. I thought to myself, stay away from this man. Cut to a few years later and we were out having work drinks at Bar94 in Richmond at 3am and I decided to kiss him. He asked me out shortly after that and we went to a laneway bar in the city and then a nice restaurant on Southbank.
When and where did you get engaged?
It was my birthday. Matt took me away to RACV Club Torquay. I was 8 months pregnant, so one last hurrah. Matt arranged to have the waiter take a photo of me blowing out the birthday cake candles at dinner and instead took a video of the proposal instead. Matt got down on one knee in the middle of the restaurant and everyone clapped. It was very romantic and very well executed
What style/theme/colours have you chosen for your Wedding Day?
It’s a Blacktie dress code and because it is at the movie theatre, I would say subtly the theme is along glamours Hollywood movie premiere. Colours are black, white, rose gold and burgundy.
What are you most looking forward to on the day?
Catching up with family and friends and see how wonderful they all look. Having a fun time and dancing the night away. Looking forward to having all the formalities out of the way as I am getting a little bit nervous and stressed. Matt’s cool as a cucumber.
Put everything in a spreadsheet, I mean everything.
