♥ How did you first meet?
We met through our mutual love of sport and education. Playing in a local social Volleyball league and studying at the same University and taking a few of the same classes (Tomika, swapped a tutorial so she was in the same as Will).
♥ Tell me about the proposal..
The proposal was at, Eagle-hawk Neck in Tasmania. We walked down onto the beach with a picnic ready to be eaten. He found the perfect spot, with not a soul in sight. Asked me if I wanted to take a picture, I happily obliged and tried to find the best lighting possible (needed a flawless picture). As I say something along the lines of, “Hurry up Will, what’s taking so long?” I turn to see him down on one knee, ring in hand. I immediately tell him to “Get up.” He responded with, “No, let me finish” and finished the speech he had prepared especially for this moment.
♥ How did you find planning the wedding?
The wedding planning was stress free, because we were able to book the venue two years in advance. Our wedding planner Michelle Hurd from Pelican Waters was so flexible and helped us through, every step of the way.
♥ What was most important to you for your special day?
For both of us we think each other was the most important. Ensuring we were both happy, enjoying our time with our wonderful family, friends, sensational food and delicious wine.
♥ What did you love about Pelican Waters Golf Club?
The location was perfect for all guests, both local and interstate. The fact we were able to walk 1 minute from hotel to venue was definitely a winner. The views from balconies were picturesque. Will played a few rounds of golf (yes morning of the wedding), which the weather turned it on for him. The package deal works in conjunction with Cloud Nine Weddings means there are no surprise costs on the wedding day. We also enjoyed the unwind after the ceremony on the course with the bridal party racing the golf buggies like Mario carts, with a couple of drinks and taking some beautiful photos.
♥ What is your favourite moment/memory from your wedding day?
Will – First seeing my lovely wife to be emerge from the trees, cross the bridge and walk down the aisle.
Tomika – Watching Will’s face when we locked eyes for the first time that day and the moment he ‘choked’ up while he began to read his vows.
♥ Where did you honeymoon? Tell me about that…
We didn’t, building a house instead.
