Real Life Wedding | Simon and Nicki

What made your day so special to you?

All our friends and family together having a good time and celebrating. That’s all that matters in the end.

Any funny stories or mishaps?

I had a major mishap with my dress. I ordered it with plans of altering the back and was assured this was possible and I had the correct size. When I picked up the dress and took it to the recommended alteration shop,they took one look at it and said it was the wrong size, it needed to be a size bigger to be able to close the back. Only a few weeks out from my wedding you can imagine my reaction.

After many meetings and knock backs from alteration shops, I was recommended Bridget from Brish’e Designs at the Sunshine Coast. When she heard my story she cleared her whole schedule and promised to have my dress ready for me to take home the next day. She managed to do what the others told me was too hard and it was perfect. Bridget quiet literally saved the day, I cannot recommend her highly enough.

Do you have any tips or ideas to pass onto upcoming couples?

Try not to worry about all the small stuff too much. On the day no one else will notice if something isn’t exactly how you planned, and you’ll be so busy enjoying your day you probably won’t notice either.

Most memorable moment?

Dancing up a storm with everyone on the dance-floor. We wish the night could have lasted forever.

Where did you honeymoon, and for how long?

We spent 7 nights on Koh Samui, Thailand, we absolutely loved it. On the last night one of the locals who worked at the resort showed us the night life on the other side of the island. We found everyone so friendly!
