We all enjoy a good love story, and the story of high school sweethearts Amanda and Brett, is no exception. The couple began dating in year 11, and judging by the beautiful garden wedding captured by the talented Justin and Carla of Vibe Photography – this exchange of vows was destined to take place. These lovebirds were captured with some stunning backdrops…
We asked Bride Amanda, to fill us in on all the details. The proposal, dress, décor and song choice for their big day…
Brett and I met in year 10 and have been together since year 11. One night Brett took me out in the city, and proposed just before we went for dinner and drinks.
My dress is by the designer Jenny Packham. I got it sent over from a London boutique. After spending months looking in bridal stores I started looking online, found the Jenny Packham website, and a few minutes later I had bought my dress! It was the most amazing internet purchase I have ever made. Maybe crazy as well, considering I hadn’t tried it on! But it fit perfect and didn’t even need to be altered. I love it!
We had our wedding in a garden, underneath a beautiful big tree with love hearts hanging from it, and incorporated butterflies into the décor. My dress’ train was in the shape of butterfly wings and its name is “Papillion” so I knew it was meant to be.
I walked down the aisle to ‘I Won’t Let You Go’ by James Morrison and our reception entrance was to ‘Highway to Hell’ by ACDC. Our first dance was to ‘Making Memories of Us’ by Keith Urban.
