Nicole and Mark enjoyed an exciting two years of travel adventures together before Mark proposed. Travelling to Japan, Singapore, Bali, Canada, USA and Iceland with a few trips to Sydney and Melbourne in there too after meeting via a dating app, it thymes with Kinder. "Our first date was at the waterfront bar in Perth City, The Lucky Shag. Mark jokes that he was my first date and I was his one hundred and first.

what was the inspiration behind your Wedding theme? Simple and minimalistic, we focussed more on sharing a personal ceremony with our loved ones and then throwing a great party!

favourite moment: The speeches were all phenomenal, everyone laughed so much. The whole day we felt surrounded with happiness and love, it was the best feeling.

tell us about the proposal: It was 19th April 2017, we were on a holiday in Rote Indonesia for the first time exploring the surf. We had rented this huge bungalow on top of the hill in the forest overlooking the ocean with a stunning view. In Rote the farm animals have free range and rome the island, including many goats. Mark knows that I love baby goats, so on this morning he lured me out of bed with the promise of “you have to come and see these baby goats just outside”. So there were no baby goats, but there was a love heart made of rose petals on the deck and Mark, down on one knee asked me to marry him. I said “yes!”

what led you to decide on your Wedding venue? We looked at many venues down in the Geographe region and we simply couldn't go past Wise Winery, the people were happy, the food was delicious and the view of the Indian Ocean is spectacular! It was perfect for us.

favourite detail: Our invites were very special to us, Mark’s sister Danika and her husband Doug run their own letterpress business and they product high quality bespoke stationery from their workshop in Albury NSW. They personally made the most beautiful invitations and wedding stationery for us, we are so lucky.

How was your dress/suit shopping experience overall? We both had a similar experience, within one day of shopping we found what we wanted, it was easy because we both more or less knew what we wanted to wear on the day.

what does marriage mean to you? Nicole - to me marriage is choosing that one special person to do life with, to share every up and down, every adventure, you always have your partner-in-crime by your side.

Mark - I am not a religious person and don't believe in marriage in it’s traditional sense. However I do still believe it can hold value for anyone and for me, my marriage is an expression & extension of my commitment to sharing everything in this life with my partner, Nicole.

any stories you want to share from the day? There was one particular dance-floor moment that tops them all, the best friend of Nicole (we won’t name her haha) took her dance moves to a whole new level and unfortunately as all great performers know accidents can happen. The dancing diva slipped mid dip and fell on her arm... a trip to the hospital that night confirmed it was a broken elbow and she had surgery on Monday following the wedding. Whoops!

advice: Remember the day is all about you both and sharing this very personal day with your chosen loved ones, it isn't about how ‘instagrammable’ the day is.

stand out vendors: Easily this was our brilliant fun-loving photographer Ayzia Jade. She arrived early, left late and she had us organised through the day to make sure we were running on time but still having fun and laughing with us. We had the best time with Ayzia and we are still blown away with the quality of images she produced for us of our special day.
