Here at Bravo Bride, we love to showcase some of the amazing weddings that are sent to us. This week we have Ciara and Tim’s breathtaking Gum Gully Farm Wedding. Be sure to take a look at the amazing photos of their big day taken by Darin Collison Photography.
How did you and your partner meet?
Tim played footy with a couple of friends of mine and we were invited to a teammates 18th birthday.
How did he propose?
At home over breakfast on Valentine’s day. We had just finished laying the merbau on our deck. We have done a lot of DIY at home during our renovations.
What’s your most important piece of advice for creating and maintaining a strong relationship?
Communication, compromise and just having fun. Doing things we both enjoy together and apart.
Tell us about your wedding gown and how you chose it.
It was a Sottero and Midgley gown. Champagne in colour with crystals, beading and lace. Simple and Elegant. I thought I would go look at dresses then have it made. But this one was just what I wanted and I knew a really good dressmaker who could alter it to fit perfectly.
What sort of style did you envision for your wedding day?
Florals, vintage and relaxed atmosphere.
What was your favorite moment from the day?
The Reception. Being surrounded by all our family and friends there to celebrate us. And feeding the deer.
Any DIY décor elements?
My mum, dad, and bridesmaids all helped with bunting, table runners, table numbers and a few other pieces.
If you could do it all over again, what would you change?
Any tips that you can give to future brides?
Organise all you can early as you can and do what you want not what family and friends want. After all, it’s your and your future husbands day!
