Meet Kerryn & Vaughan

I met Vaughan through his younger sister.

She joined the belly dance group I was in and we became friends. She invited me to her 21st birthday and that’s where I met Vaughan.

We saw each other a few more times a friends BBQs and our relationship slowly grew from there. Though I had to eventually ask him whether or not we were an official couple as he was going back to his shift work and I wasn’t going to be able to see much of him. He, of course, said yes.

The proposal

We went out to dinner for our 3rd anniversary and then out to Mt Cootha Lookout where he was acting a little strange. Didn’t think anything of it though.

When we got home he told me he forgot to give me my card and to close my eyes while he got it. When he asked me to open my eyes, he was holding a diamond ring instead of a card. I burst out crying and eventually said yes once I got my tears under control.

Your Wedding Day

Our day started about 7am when myself, my bridesmaids and my mum woke got up.

Our hair and makeup artists arrived about 9.30am and we had breakfast and chatted while they made us up.

Once we had our hair and makeup done, the photographer was there and asking us to get dressed. He took some photos of us around the house and garden and then it was time to head off to the park for our pre-wedding shoot with my groom and his groomsmen.

The drive to the park was a very nervous one for me as I was heading to see my future husband.

Our photographer set up our meeting and there were a few tears shed as we saw each other for the first time.

The photo shoot was great fun but before we knew it, it was time to head off to the ceremony venue.

The ceremony went by so quickly, and I managed to hold off the tears till after we’d been pronounced husband and wife.

After the ceremony and the signing, it was off for a few more photos before the reception began.

To start our reception, myself, one of my bridesmaids, my mum and my fellow dance troup performed a belly dance show!

It went down really well and everyone commented on how good it was and how surprised they were.

Before we knew it, it was 10.30pm and time to leave. Vaughan and I said our goodbyes and got into the limo that was waiting for us and we were whisked away to our hotel room for the night. Didn’t get any sleep though as I was too buy recounting our day!
