Tell us how you met
Nick was down in Sydney for the annual work awards function. We hit it off and for the next two years we did long distance.
We were down in Sydney and Nick wanted to take some early morning sunrise shots at Long Reef Headland. Turns out his intentions were not the sunrise shots but to make me his wife.
