Emily & Sam | Real Weddings New South Wales

Meet Emily & Sam

Sam and I have been together since high school (yes… high school sweethearts) – which is over 10 years.

The proposal

Sam popped the question on a beautiful sunny, spring day on a bridge in Southbank Melbourne – above the Yarra River.

Your Wedding Day

They say rain is good luck on your wedding day… Well, we sure do have a whole lotta luck coming our way, because it rained all day and night. Despite the wet weather, we both had the most amazing day!

We were married in our home town of Wagga Wagga. The ceremony was held at a winery just out of Wagga called Borambola Winery – and the reception was held at the Wagga Wagga Country Golf Club. We relished the opportunity to return home from Melbourne to spend time with our families, and spend the morning of our wedding in our parent’s homes.

We wrote our own vows. We selected two readings inc ‘Grow Old With Me ~ by John Lennon’ and another poem which added a personal, relaxed tone to our ceremony.

I arranged a surprise gift for Sam and his groomsmen on the morning of the wedding – Cufflinks which contained the photos of our Grandparents. It was an added touch to our wedding – as we both have such large families, and not all our grandparents are surviving… Sam and his 2 brothers wore cufflinks with their grandparents, and my brother (who was also a groomsmen had our grandparents).

The theme of our wedding was black, white and green.
