ELI • A ONE DAY BRIDE
ELI + TIM
11th March 2017
WHEN AND HOW WE MET
We met on 2006 Melbourne Cup Day at the Gunn Island Hotel. We dated briefly but it didn’t eventuate to anything, before bumping into each other in 2012 and having a proper go. This attempt we got past the dating stage.
Having met in Albert Park and being locals, we were drawn to Carousel. We wanted a wedding on some body of water, lake, beach, river and that could hold lots of guests.
THE DRESS : Customised Lola Gown
I had bookmarked One Day Bridal in my mind after seeing their beautiful dresses on social media. I knew when we got engaged I had to have an appointment to see the wedding range. One Day was my first stop, I had a few other appointments but it was love at first sight with the Lola dress and nothing else compared.
THE WEDDING PARTY
My bridesmaids wore black Shona Joy cocktail dresses.
ADVICE FOR FUTURE BRIDES
Delegate everything! It was so calming to have people on top of every detail so I could spend my time writing vows, organising bridesmaids and myself. I totally trusted it would all be set up as planned and was so amazing to not have that stress running around on the wedding week.
