Today we’re taking you down under to New South Wales for the beachside wedding of Meaghan and Jesse. Having been roommates for a few years, they eventually became best friends, and this friendship blossomed into love. How sweet is it to be able to marry your best friend?

Meaghan and Jesse were married in front of 90 of their closest family and friends at Caves Coastal Bar and Bungalows which overlooks Caves Beach, a picture perfect ceremony location with breathtaking ocean views.

Read on to hear from Meaghan about their magical wedding day…

Tell us about the proposal…

We were vacationing in the Amalfi Coast, and one day we hiked the Santiero Degli Dei (or Walk of the Gods). We stopped for a picnic lunch on the cliffside and afterwards, he got down on one knee and popped the question. It took me completely by surprise!

What do you love most about your partner?

He always makes me laugh, and every day I feel loved and supported by him. I love that I truly got to marry my best friend.

Tell us about your wedding gown and how you chose it…

I already had my eye on the Lanai gown for several years before I was even engaged, (thank you Pinterest). I always loved the low back and simple design of it. To avoid getting my hopes up too high in case I didn’t like the dress on, I tried several other styles first. But the moment I finally tried it for myself, I knew it was the one.

What sort of style did you envision for your wedding day?

I always envisioned a beachy, relaxed style of wedding.


What was your favourite moment from the day?

My favourite moment of the day was seeing my fiancé down the end of the aisle. I will never forget the smile he gave me, and the feeling I had in my heart.

What’s your most important piece of advice for creating and maintaining a strong relationship?

I think communication is definitely key. Listening and really hearing what your partner has to say and taking it on board is so important, and allows for that person to feel supported. Laughter every day is also vital.

Any tips that you can give to future brides?

I know it’s easier said than done, but try not to get too stressed about the minor details, especially on the day. Everything works out in the end. My biggest tip though that someone gave to me that I would like to pass down, is to make sure you take at least a few moments throughout the wedding day to just stop, and take it all in. The day goes by in a flash! 

So many congratulations to Meaghan and Jesse…what a stunning day it was…

 

Much Love
