From the Bride... Luke and I met playing water polo at the 2004 University Games in Perth. We were apparently introduced by my best friend and maid of honour who had previously been on a water polo tour with Luke.
Living on opposite sides of the country made it difficult to have a relationship but somehow we managed to do it for a few years. After a while we decided it was time to try living in the same city and I finally made the decision to move over to Melbourne. Luke proposed in June 2012 at his family’s beach house while walking our dog Luna. It was a beautiful day with a lovely back drop. It was exciting calling all our family and friends to share the news.
Living in Melbourne and planning a wedding in Perth had its challenges but we were fortunate to have lovely and talented family and friends who played an important part in ensuring all went to plan. We had people come from all over Australia and also from Brazil which meant so much to us. It was an amazing day and so special to be surrounded by our closest friends and family.
