Meet Tonita & Ashley

We met through friends and got talking and realised that there was something about each other that really attracted us. We became friends and started dating after about a year and have never looked back!

The proposal

We had just brought a house together and were having our first christmas in our new house with all our family. We were sitting in our loungeroom after everyone had left and were thinking about how awesome it was to have our own place and be able to have everyone over for Christmas when Ash suddenly gets up, runs off into the bedroom and comes out with his hands behind his back grinning like a Cheshire cat! He was so excited. He came over to me, got down on one knee and popped the questions.

Your Wedding Day

Our day was the most perfect day ever. We both got photos before heading to the church which helped the mounting excitement. Then the girls and I hopped in our hummer and headed off to the church where the boys were waiting. I was so overcome with emotion when it was my turn to walk down the aisle. I was crying happy tears and couldn’t wait to get to my husband at the other end of the aisle.

We all had some much fun taking photos after the ceremony all mucking around like little kids.
The reception was beautiful, the speeches were amazing and we partied like no other.
Guests later told us that it was the most emotional wedding they had ever been to, the reception was the best reception they’d been to and the speeches were the best wedding speeches. Not a bad wrap!
Ash and I always said that the thing we were looking forward to most about being married was not the big wedding day but the rest of our lives together as husband and wife.
