How did you meet?

We meet 9 years ago, at high school, in Nathans maths class where I had been moved in too – which is a whole other story!

In three words describe your wedding style…

Simple, classic with a modern/contemporary twist.

What music did you play for those special moments?

The first song that was sung was a song that Nathan and I wrote – it was sooo perfect! Khellsey-Anna performed it beautifully and our guests loved this fun loving song that started of the celebrations.

When I was walking down the aisle Khellsey-Anna sung a song by Emily Hearn called “Ships Need the Sea”. While signing the registrar we had another song by Emily Hearn called “Found a Heart” and after we were announced Husband and Wife we walked out to Ed Sheeran and Rudimentals “Lay it all on Me”.

Neil Chilton and Pearly’s band got our guests dancing right from their first song. For our first dance we had the song “Fire” by the Pointer Sisters then the band performed the night away adding in the odd sneaky Wagon Wheel tune throughout the night!

What were the save and splurge items for your wedding?

Saved on alcohol and catering as we could get our own in as well as wedding stationary and the cake as I had help from friends.

Splurge items include the venue, videographer and continuing the party for the next couple of days!

Did you DIY?

Yes, stationery, photos in frames of our parents and grandparents at their wedding, and other bits here and there.

What was the most difficult part of planning your wedding? And the most fun?

The only thing that was difficult was the guest list! I loved the whole process!

Do you have any money saving tips for engaged couples?

Don’t spend too much time or money on the smaller things that no one will notice or remember about the day. Remember what is important and what the day is actually about. A lot of things you can do yourself also.
