“The ceremony was short and sweet, and the venue (The Waterfront) was so beautiful. We were then announced husband and wife and what a great moment marrying your best friend. It was such a precious day, the best day of our lives.” Laura Cresswell.

“The highlight was the wedding in its entirety… the fact that we had so many people from afar, combined with our dearest friends and family to celebrate with us. Every item at the venue had a story regarding how it was found, where it was bought or who helped make it. Family and friends helped us in the lead up, during and after the wedding, which made the wedding even more meaningful to us.” Marie Young, 25

“Our first dance! It was Louise Armstrong’s Le Vie En Rose, meaning life in pink. We chose it because it is just a beautiful song that reminded us of the time we spent in Paris, my favourite place overseas.” Sarah Duzelovski, 26

“Marrying the man I love! Aside from that, it was walking down the aisle with my dad who had fractured his hip a few weeks before the wedding but had put off the operation so that he could walk me down the aisle. So he walked me down the aisle on a fractured hip. That meant more to me than he’ll ever know.” Caroline Martin, 34

“I think my favourite part of the day was when we were sitting in the limousine after the church service. Gary and I looked at each other and I said ‘We have done it. We survived the madness and stress of planning and now we are husband and wife’. That was the best feeling in the world, to know that I have married the man I love with my whole heart and we are going to spend the rest of our lives together.” Kate Fiddick, 27
