The park behind our house, Gold Coast, QLD
How did he pop the question?
He didn’t! We decided together! Being married and having our own family was so assumed and matter-of-fact that it suddenly felt wrong to still be ‘dating’. We decided to get married on a road trip down to Sydney where we stopped at small towns over a few days and would ride our bikes to explore the town. It was the happiest little holiday!
What song was your first dance to?
We didn’t have the first dance because #covid but I walked down the aisle to Feels like Home by Chantal Kreviazuk.
Your biggest tip to any couple getting married?
Don’t plan a longer engagement unless you have to! We had to change plans from the big, one-week, international celebration to a 5-person elopement. I called Katie from Arctic Fox on Wednesday afternoon once I accidentally found the perfect location and we married on Friday. It was three weeks before the original wedding date and a week after we canceled our big wedding… and it was the best! There was zero stress, no pre-conceived plans of how everything should run or look, and, somehow, everything was perfect! In fact, more perfect than I think it would have been if we had a big wedding and the 1000 spreadsheets that went with it!
Describe your day in three words...
Beautifully, intensely romantic.
Arctic Fox helped with…
Managing all my breakdowns and the set-up on the day! Haha!
Styling, Coordination, and Furniture Hire all by Arctic Fox.

When you elope, you only have a couple of suppliers to worry about!
