“You can never find ‘boyfriend’ or ‘husband’ material at a bar!”
Whether you’ve merely heard the saying, or had it said to you as the wise words of an older relative, it’s definitely a prime saying throughout our ‘single life’. Lara’s mother was a proud advocate of the saying, until one day Lara cheekily proved her wrong by meeting husband to be, Aaron, at a bar in Adelaide.
As their relationship blossomed into something quite remarkable, they found themselves on a trip to the breath-taking New Zealand. On the first evening the couple decided to hike the Routeburn Trak as the sun set above the snow-capped mountains. As Lara reached for Aaron’s support climbing over a large rock, she couldn’t help but notice something quite unusual…
“When our hands touched I could feel him shaking… that’s when it dawned on me.” As she turned toward him, Aaron was down on one knee uttering the words “Lara would you do me the honour of being my wife?”
Their beautiful wedding followed, with Lara stunning in a backless, lace gown and floral headpiece withan exceptional floral bouquet that matched the sky blue gowns of Lara’s bridesmaids. Fairy lights and chandeliers hung above the reception created a warm and intimate space while guests dined with fabulous food and danced throughout the night.
