How did you meet each other? We had mutual friends but it was a random facebook friend request that got
us talking. We met up a week later for our first date and never looked back.

Describe your ideal wedding day: We just wanted something fun and a little bit fancy. The most important
part was having all the people we love there.

Who did you choose to marry you, and why? We chose Fiona Rogers – she was Matt’s Mums hairdresser
and came recommended from Lisa too. She is doing the girls hair and make-up too so it was a win-win. We
met Fiona and immediately knew we had made the right decision.

Tell me about your venue? What was the deciding factor? We chose to get married at Estate Tuscany in
Pokolbin as we wanted somewhere a bit fancy. It is the perfect combination of a true Hunter Valley wine estate
wedding while still being rustic and casual. The grounds are magnificent and we felt we could get a variety of
pictures on the day.

Why did you end up choosing Lisa Lent to shoot your day? We looked around and priced a few
photographers looking into ones we had known people had used before. Lisa had shot a few weddings of
mutual friends and being a central coast local came up on facebook a lot. It was fate when she had a special
deal running that we just booked in and went for it. All communications with Lisa have been easy and fuss free.

Which company is doing your hair and make-up? Our celebrant Fiona is a hair and makeup artist, Divine
Hair and beauty. We went with Fiona as she was already going to be there and had been recommended so

Are you having a DJ or live band? Who did you choose? We are having a musician – Jordan Roach. He is
Matt’s Dad’s guitar coach. He does weddings and events and we wanted something more casual so looking
forward to having a guitar strumming along while we enjoy our day.

Where did you get your wedding day clothing from? Jess is 34 weeks pregnant so we knew a traditional
dress wasn’t going to cut it. She got a lovely maternity lace dress from Maive and Bo which is surprising just
like the dress she would have had anyway. The girls bridesmaids dresses are from Myer and the Matt and the
groomsmens outfits are from David Jones.

Who is doing your florals and your decorations? The flowers all came from Tuggerah Beautiful Flowers
and Jess’s mum is doing the table decorations and arranging flowers along the tables too. She has even made
individual jars of jam as the bonbonnieres and placecards.

Name 2 things you want your guests to remember about your wedding: That they had a fun day with
great food and drinks.

What is your first dance song? I don’t want to miss a thing – Aerosmith.
