ST PETER’S ANGLICAN CHURCH, MORNINGTON AND THE BRIARS PARK, MOUNT MARTHA, VIC

The meeting
Catherine and Tim met at a mutual friend’s 21st birthday. “We spent most of the night chatting, dancing and ended up on a camping trip to Wilson’s Prom with friends the next weekend,” says Catherine. “For us, the highlight of being together is the way we tend to bring out the best in each other...He’s my best friend, I could chat to him forever. He is always supportive of my journey through life, and he shares my love for pursuing a life that is about loving others and cultivating healthy, life-bringing relationships,” she says.

The proposal
“TJ proposed with a little help from at least ten of our closest friends,” says Catherine. Her girlfriends invited her to have lunch at Arthur’s Seat Maze. “Before the end of the meal, the waitress handed me a card that said ‘Come meet me in the maze – TJ’,” she says. “It took me a couple of times to find him, but he was standing in the middle of the maze in a suit – this is on a 30 degree day!”

The wedding day
“Most of all, we wanted to have fun!” says Catherine. They had about 200 guests at the ceremony and 100 at the reception. “Our wedding was filled with things that we love, and I guess this was vintage/nostalgic/handmade kind of look,” she says. Rather than having their first dance as a solo couple they chose to have a group dance to Heart it Races by Architecture in Helsinki. Catherine also arranged for an ice-cream truck on the day as a surprise present for Tim. But the big highlight: “Spending it with 100 of the most brilliant, creative, loving, amazing people that we know,” says Catherine.

The dress
Catherine wore a handmade, strapless, 1950s prom dress. It was made from pale blue tulle and netting and pink acetate and lace. She bought it from an online shop in New York, Wallflower Vintage.

The cake
They had cupcakes from Create Great Cake – an online cake store which they heard about at the Prahran Market.
