Stacey & Tony | Real Weddings South Australia
Meet Stacey & Tony
Tony worked security at a club that I went to… We dated for 6 months then went our separate ways.
After 6 years I found Tony on Facebook and our romance took off as it had never been interrupted!
Tony was living in Queensland and I was living in Adelaide with my 1 and half year old son. Tony and I talked of marriage, children and our future…
Tony came down for a visit, we were sitting on the couch snuggling up watching TV and he slid the ring onto my finger. He then announced ‘well there you go, now were engaged!’
Your Wedding Day
I spent the night before at my mums with Lochlan (our son) my mum, my Grandma (who came from Scotland) and my 4 bridesmaids. We woke at 6 am to our hairdressers at the door and the day began!
At 12 the photographer and Tony arrived and began the photos. Tony and I did a photo together before the wedding at the corner of my mum’s house so we could not see each other.
My Mum handmade my dress and used fabric from her wedding dress. So it is very special and made with much LOVE!!
At 1.30 the car arrived and we set off for the service at 2 pm at Brougham Uniting Church. I had a Piper play as my mum walked me down the aisle.
We had a laptop that Skyped to Scotland, where my Dads side of the family woke at about 3 am to watch the service.
After exchanging the rings Lochlan came up and Tony gave him a necklace to as we wanted to include Lochlan. The ceremony was simple, elegant, personal and intimate. Everything we wanted.
After the ceremony we let a balloon go in memory of my Dad who past away a year earlier. It was sad but a nice moment.
After some photos on the stunning steps at the front of the church, we went to the Adelaide Botanical Gardens and had photos with the bridal party, before getting KFC and heading up to Belair Country Club for the reception.
The reception was amazing beautifully set up, the food was perfect, the cake was everything I hoped for. We had a photo booth, which was a hit! Tony and his groomsmen did the Haka as a surprise to me which was a big hit for me as well as all the guests.PERFECTION!!!
