Becki & Carly
15th May 2021
The Love Story
Becki is from Manchester, UK and Carly is from Brisbane, AU. They met whilst they were both overseas working at Disney World, Orlando, USA and were there together for 6 months. After this, Becki came over to Australia to visit Carly for two months and that is when they decided to do long distance. They did long distance for nine months before Becki moved to Brisbane to be with Carly.
After dating for 4.5 years, they went on a trip to Switzerland together. While there, they had plans to meet Becki's family in Paris and then head to the UK for two weeks to spend time with Becki's family.
"Whilst in Switzerland, Carly had planned to propose to me (little did I know). She organised a day out in some castle grounds in Gunten. She got down on one knee in front of a beautiful Swiss lake on the castle grounds! It was amazing. She had also organised a photographer to capture the moment. Later in the evening, she had organised a private dinner and spa for us to celebrate!"
"Fast forward two years, we decided to elope on Hamilton Island - lots to do with COVID-19. We felt like a small elopement would just be fun and intimate. We decided to just invite the bridal party, so the bridesmaids and bridesmen, and had a mini holiday out of it all together. The entire day was so perfect and so stress free!"
"I chose the Sammy dress. I loved the elegance and sleek fit that it had, and also that it had a small train and a bodice with a little bit of 'wow' to it! I thought it would fit well in with a beach wedding and I honestly loved my dress so much!
A huge thank you to Brides of Brisbane who made my viewing super fun and enjoyable. I had a previous bad experience in a different shop, and Brides of Brisbane made me sooo happy with their beautiful customer service! Shout out to Shaunagh - she was amazing! I also got the floor length veil which I didn't take off all day because I loved it too much! Thank you!"
