Amy and Mick’s love story started in 2015, in Papua New Guinea. They met each other while signing up to the same adventure company to walk the Kokoda trek. Their adventure was made that extra bit special when Mick proposed to Amy on the top of Uluru, the mark of another monumental dream for their life.
To Amy, marriage is about sharing all of life’s wonderful experiences with that special someone.
Amy and Mick had a barn style, rustic wedding. With the highlight being Amy’s family coming in from QLD while Mick’s family flying in from SA. It was so special to have them there not only for the big day but a few weeks prior. The family spent weeks collecting leaves from the family farm and hole punching heart shaped gum leaf confetti to use after the ceremony. The other highlight of their wedding was their custom made couple akubras. Mick wanted to wear shotgun shell buttonholes, which their florist was able to turn them into something special for him and his groomsmen.
Gown shopping was great for Amy. She had her eye on the DI gown ever since she got engaged. “It was the first gown I tried on and I fell in love instantly! My dream dress! ”
Her bridesmaids and mum joined her when she came to When Feddie Met Lilly to try on our stunning dresses. It was magical for Amy’s family to be a part of her dress searching process. “They knew what I was looking for and I think they were just as excited when I found it. ”
Same goes for Mick on his journey to find his suit. Amy’s sister took Mick suit shopping to keep it a surprise for Amy on the day. She had no idea how the suit would look, but she trusted her sister as they both had similar style/ideas.
For Amy, her wedding preparations were a relaxing and intimate time. There wasn’t any pressure to find the perfect dress, as she already had and she didn't feel rushed by anything. To Amy, it was important to be present and to soak everything in. Spending time with everyone and enjoying the process was her favourite experience.
Her advice for brides preparing for their wedding would be to “create a spreadsheet with all your wedding information, including the wedding budget, payments made and who paid for it to keep track of where you are up to. And your bridesmaids will bend over backwards for you so keep calm and trust the process. And last but not least, If something doesn’t go to plan or you run out of time organising it, don’t worry. I couldn’t fault my experience with When Freddie Met Lilly and was so excited to find my dream dress”
Once again, we congratulate our lovely couple Amy and Mick and wish them every happiness!
