Sarah & Luke’s Hunter Valley Wedding
Sarah and Luke held their Hunter Valley Wedding on 2nd September 2017 at Tocal Homestead in Paterson, NSW. The reception afterwards was also held at the historic property. Sarah chose the stunning Cayman wedding dress in a mocha tone, which showed off the intricate lace beautifully. We recently asked Sarah a few questions about her wedding day and finding the dress!
Peter Trends: How did you meet your husband?
Sarah: Luke’s sister (who is also one of my close friends) decided to play matchmaker and introduced us at a party – we have been inseparable ever since!
Peter Trends: How did your husband propose to you?
Sarah: We got caught in a sun shower while walking along a beach in Port Douglas so we took shelter in some palm trees and Luke proposed there. I was ecstatic!
Peter Trends: What was your favourite part of your wedding day?
Sarah: I loved every minute of our wedding day! I was overwhelmed by the love and thought that went into the speeches and my sister had everyone in stitches when she surprised us with a song she had customised just for us!
Peter Trends: How did you find the experience of shopping for a wedding gown?
Sarah: Unexpectedly easy! I think it has the potential to become overwhelming but you just have to pick something that you feel like yourself in.
Peter Trends: What did you love about your wedding dress?
Sarah: I was first attracted to the beautiful mocha colour of the Cayman, then when I tried it on it just felt right! I loved that you could really see the pattern of the ivory lace against the contrast of the mocha. It has the prettiest detail in the lace.
Peter Trends: Any words of wisdom for future brides?
Sarah: Enjoy the unplanned moments that pop up on the day and try to mingle with your new husband, don’t get caught up in all the fuss of the day – stick by each others side. It’s your day! Enjoy it!
