MEGAN TRACEY AND LUKE HARRISON
JESMOND PARK AND NEWCASTLE CITY HALL, NEWCASTLE, NSW
Megan met Luke back in February of 2007 when she began working at Newcastle City Holden where he was working as a foreman. “We were a couple by April and moved in together in June and have been together ever since,” says Megan. “We make each other laugh and support each other in everything...we are best friends and truly just enjoy being together.”
Megan was secretly hoping he would propose in front of all their friends while they were celebrating her upcoming birthday at the races. “I always rib him about how unromantic he is and thought that this would be the perfect time,” she says. But he didn’t, and as the day was coming to a close she was resigned to the fact she would be waiting a few more months. But she didn’t have to wait long. “The next morning when I woke up - severely hung over - he got down on one knee in the hallway at home and asked me to marry him,” she says. “The story is very unromantic but very Luke and I.”
The wedding day
“The wedding day was perfect from the beautiful weather to our amazing cake,” says Megan. They had 80 guests attend both the ceremony and reception. They chose a classic, traditional look with added touches of their own unique style and a colour scheme of silver and burgundy. “We only had three speeches but my maid of honour Shanna’s speech had me in tears and was a definite highlight of the night. Everyone agreed,” she says. Being nervous about their first dance, they did it as soon as they arrived at the reception so they could get it out of the way. “[It] was also something that we will never forget.
Megan wore a strapless gown with a sweetheart neckline, dropped waist, corset back and a French Chantilly lace overlay. It was designed by Henri Josef and came from The Bridal Co in Newcastle.
It was a three-tiered cake – peach and orange cake, orange butter cream and carrot cake. It was made by Sugar Rush in Mount Hutton and was decorated with fondant icing and icing roses and rings.
