A secret proposal was underway by Tim while his gorgeous soon to be wife was away in Sydney with her maid of honour. Tim knew that this was the only time that he could surprise Melissa and create a gorgeous and thoughtful set up that he knew she couldn't resist, after all it had only taken him 8 years to finally ask her to marry him.
When Melissa arrived home she was surprised to see Tim had taken the time to set up a large floral bouquet of white lilies, pink roses and an assortment of carnations, glasses of champagne and a white gold ring with diamonds. In the middle of all the set up was a letter asking "will you marry me?" , of course Melissa said "Yes" and here we are 1 year later.
Melissa and Tim's wedding journey began at the Hilton, Docklands Melbourne where they both got ready with their Bridal party. Melissa wore a blush coloured gown, snow white fluffy wrap and hair piece all purchased from Pearls and Roses in Geelong. Her bridesmaids dresses complemented her gown and were from Forever New. All suits were from Bell and Barnett.
Melissa and Tim's ceremony took place at one of Melbournes most iconic Churches, St Pauls Cathedral. Melissa loved the church so much "it was big and beautiful and it was so overwhleming".
Afterwards Melissa and Tim being lovers of animals knew that the Collingwood Kids farm was the place that they wanted to have their photographs taken at. The Collingwood kids farm not only had animals but also the rustic barns and wide open spaces.
Their reception followed at Showtime Events in the Docklands. All I have to say is WOW the moment you walked in the venue was lit up with soft lighting, tables were dressed elegantly and guests were served on arrival with a hand picked menu chosen by the lucky couple.
