How did you meet each other? Luke and I met through a mutual friend when were teenagers. After our first initial meeting, we continued to see each other at various gatherings where we actually ‘liked’ other people but we’re friends. After a while, where we kept seeing each other and chatting, Luke eventually asked me out and well the rest is history.
Describe your ideal wedding day – For our day to run smoothly; and for Luke and I to be able to take it all in, and enjoy ourselves and be able to spend time with our guests.
Who did you choose to marry you, and why? We chose Kerryn (Kez) from Wed by Kez. We initially found Kez through you and your recommendations! We ended up picking Kez because we got along with her so well; we actually have quite similar interests so Luke and I felt so at ease when talking with her.
Tell me about your venue? What was the deciding factor? – Luke and I looked at so many venues across Sydney, the north and south coasts and even throughout the Hunter Valley, but just none of them made us both feel happy or relevant to who we are as people. We were always pretty set on having a venue that had both the ceremony and reception on the same property, that had a nice outdoor area. We stumble across Somersby Gardens Estate on Google and decided to check it out, when walking around Luke and I just fell in love with the property. It’s so pretty; and is surrounded by the bush that resonates with us both. We both felt so ‘at home’ and comfortable at Somersby so we just knew then there, this was the venue.
Why did you end up choosing Lisa Lent to shoot your day? – We picked you (like many of suppliers) because we just got along, you were so helpful and friendly from the start and through the whole last 18 months. You made Luke and I feel like we could trust and rely on you. Also I was just super impressed by how quickly you got back to my original enquiry it was crazy like 15 minutes! You really made a first impression that day 🙂
Which company is doing your hair and make up? – Karen Dyer Make Up & Hair, and Cassandra Herrick Hair Artistry
Are you having a DJ or live band? Who did you choose? – A DJ – Magoos Party Hire
Where did you get your wedding day clothing from ? – Brides Dress – Brides of Sydney Brides Shoes – Steve Madden Bridesmaid Dresses – Oleg Cassini Bridesmaid Shoes – Billini Groom & Groomsen Outfits – YD
Who is doing your florals and your decorations? – Bec from Kurtzy Flowers is doing our flowers and most of our decorations. We are also DYIng parts of the centrepieces, we’ve purchased lanterns and my (Nicole’s) mum has made our candles 🙂
Name 2 things you want your guests to remember about your wedding – We want our guests to remember how much they enjoy/ed themselves. We also want them to remember the scenery/theme and food (all of which tie into each other)
What is your first dance song? – Perfect – Ed Sheeran
