Meet Carly & Kieran

Kieran and I met whilst working together in a Hotel. He was actually one of my bosses. There was constant flirting between us and eventually I plucked up the courage to ask him out. Obviously I am thankful that I did as we have a beautiful relationship and a gorgeous Son out of it.

The proposal

Kieran first rang my Dad up to get his permission, (which I obviously didn’t know about until later on that night) He then took me out for a beautiful dinner at my favourite restaurant and when we got back to my house we went inside and there was a beautiful bunch of flowers and a box of my favourite chocolates waiting for me. He asked me to open the chocolates and when I did, to my surprise there was a gorgeous engagement ring in there. He got down on one knee and asked me to be his wife.

Your Wedding Day

The weather was absolutely perfect for our gorgeous St Kilda Botanical Gardens wedding. There was a stunning little gazebo surrounded by magnificent roses which is where we decided to hold our ceremony. The ceremony was absolutely perfect. We decided to write our own vows and when I heard what my husband wrote, I found it incredibly hard not to cry. During the signing, my beautiful 2 year old Son decided to show off his dancing skills and strutted his stuff to the music that was playing in the background. Certainly turned everyone’s teary eyes into big smiles and laughs. Next was time for photos. I had 3 incredibly talented photographers who made the whole experience very enjoyable. They took us to Luna Park and the Palais Theatre, then on to the beach. Our Reception was on an amazing boat called the ‘Sea Melbourne’ From start to finish it was just perfect. Everyone commented on what a great idea and how fantastic it was. The food was delicious and the staff were lovely. I decided to go with doing my own decorations, We had a silver, white and black theme and it ended up looking fantastic. The Groomsmen were wearing silver suits and the bridesmaids looked beautiful in their black and white dresses. It was perfect day and everything went off without a hitch.
