The Proposal

"We were invited to a 'family friend’s birthday lunch' at Star of Greece in Port Willunga. Julian told me he was working half a day that day and would come to lunch later on. When I arrived, my cousins told me that everyone was at the beach taking some photos. As I was walking along the beach to find them, I saw Julian in a cave with my dog Luna and he had set up the most perfect picnic. After struggling to walk to him because all of the rocks (I am so uncoordinated), he helped me up to the cave and got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. I clearly said yes and we had the most perfect day together."

The Rings

Ruha: "For my engagement ring - I knew I wanted a solitaire oval ring. When Daniel showed me the ring I had enquired for, I fell in love with it. For my wedding ring - A platinum diamond band. I wanted something delicate, timeless and classic, something that would compliment my engagement ring."

Julian: "A classic white gold band. I wanted something that would never go out of style."

Favourite Moment

"Our First Look at Blackwood Forest - we knew we wanted to see each other before the ceremony and say our vows with just the two of us. It was the most perfect moment that we will cherish forever. It was nice to exchange our mornings and relax before the quickest and busiest day."
