Sage on Ann Wedding
Caroline & Stuart and their beautiful Brisbane wedding !
Date: 6 June 2015
Tell us how you met: We met whilst working as expatriate tax specialists at Deloitte.
Stuart surprised me with a beautiful sparkling diamond ring and proposal as part of the exchange of Easter eggs to each other on Easter Sunday this year.
He has assured me that this was a one-time only deal and that I should not expect to receive diamonds each Easter hereafter (much to my disappointment) 😉

As we are expecting our first child shortly, we did not have a Honeymoon after our wedding. We are hoping to travel to either the Maldives or Fiji for our Babymoon in the not too distant future.
The best man’s speech. There is always bound to be some surprising and hilarious stories that come out about the groom and ours was no exception to this.
Favourite Wedding Day moment
Our first dance together as a married couple.
Special thanks to
Many heartfelt thanks to all of the vendors who made our day so incredibly enjoyable and memorable.
What did you value most about using Ben Clark Photography?
From our initial meeting with Ben, we both felt very comfortable and relaxed in his presence and knew that he would capture all of our special moments from our wedding day in a natural and candid way.
Advice for other brides-to-be
It’s very easy to get overwhelmed by the many choices that are available for weddings and complicate matters.
However, we were able to organise a beautiful wedding in two months so I would say trust your instinct, be decisive and attempt to keep things simple.
