on the 10th June one week before my birthday. He was extremely nervous
during the evening and apparently rang up one of my friends terrified
that I would say no. He took me to the Windy Point restaurant for
dinner. After dinner we headed back to my mum's house and received
a phone call and Daniel insisted that we need to go out again.
I started to wonder what was
going on when we arrived at the Pier hotel. He told me to close
my eyes while he walked me through the room. When I opened my eyes
there was a train of rose petals on the floor with notes. The note
read:- the first time Ii met you, I knew you were the one, I love
you. The note led me to a door which I opened and there was a huge
love heart of rose petals on the bed with a teddy bear. Daniel got
down on one knee and proposed. What made the night even more special
was that he lit 100 candles, filled the room with roses and in the
bathtub he had rose petals with essential oils burning. On the balcony
he had champagne and chocolates and hired the notebook, which was
very romantic. The reason Daniel was panicking at my mum’s
house was my friend had lit all the candles in the room and left
we had to get there quickly before the room caught on fire.
From when he proposed we had
approximately a year and a half to plan and organise our wedding.
We decided on an elegant and formal theme and invited 220 guests.
The night before our wedding
I was too excited to sleep. My girl friend stayed over and we were
up most of the night talking. In the morning we awoke at 6am and
then the bridesmaids came over and we headed off to the hairdresser.
I must say she did a fabulous job on our hair and makeup we looked
and felt great. After three hours of pampering we went back home
where 30 family members were waiting. Having something small to
eat and drink, while getting ready one of my bridesmaids decided
to wear tummy tuck underwear which was quite high we could not stop
laughing what women do to look good. The photographer arrived and
after one hour of posing for the camera we were on our way.
The day was perfect we were very
lucky as the weather was quite warm. The church was lovely, we drove
through the garden in three Marc 7 Jags arriving at the entrance
where a red carpet was laid.
When the doors opened and I started
walking the aisle to ‘‘don’t want to miss a thing''
by Aero Smith words cannot explain how Ii felt, both Daniel and
I were filled with nerves and joy as this was the beginning of our
married life together.
The evening was nice and balmy,
our reception was held at Sfera's on the Park. A beautiful venue,
the food was fantastic we started with antipasto platters of Prawns,
Octopus and Calamari served warm bread rolls dipped in olive oil,
entree of pesto with eggplant, a choice of two main meals, Barramundi
or Chicken and Scotch fillets served with Mediterranean salad and
rosemary spiced potatoes, Dessert was a choice of 3 small cakes
and the wedding cake.
We decided on both a band and
a DJ, which played a variety of music, as were both of different
religion we had to come to an agreement of what music to play at
what intervals to please both families. For the decorations we had
Singapore orchids with soft pink roses and fairy lights, and the
bonbonniere angel candleholders with pink and blue almonds wrapped
in a Tully with a pink bow.
We had our honeymoon in Thailand,
Koh Samui was beautiful and not expensive. We would highly recommend
it. We stayed at a six star hotel on the beach, every morning we
would wake up have a banquet breakfast and go for a walk along the
beach, stop and have a massage and a cocktail then see where the
day would take us.
Enjoy every moment as the day
passes you by.
