Nathan & Hollie
In the Hollie Gown
How It All Began:
Nath and I met in Bali. I was on a girls trip celebrating my 18th birthday when i noticed him at a restaurant. The first time however, that I spoke to him was when I saw him dancing on a podium in a club with a white shirt tied to his head. We nicknamed him ‘Nath the one’ as a joke. He lived on the South Coast of Sydney, 13 hrs away from me on the Gold Coast. But somehow we came together and instantly knew we didn’t want to be apart. I got a job offer to move to Sydney and our worlds came together!
Describe your wedding day look…
All we wanted was to create a really fun relaxed party feel. So all the planning and styling was to create exactly that. We both love the beach so we always knew we had to have our feet in the sand when we said ‘I-do’. To top it off we had all of our friends there to dance the night away, it was the best day and night of our life!
How did he propose?
Nath tricked me to go watch my brother night surfing at my favourite beach The Currumbin Alley. It was a full moon and when we got down to the rock there was fire sticks and a rug with roses. I was totally confused and shocked when I turned around and he was down on one knee. It was just such a beautiful night!
We went to beautiful Hawaii and stayed at Turtle Bay Resort on the North Shore. We also hired a van and travelled around the island for a few days chasing the surf.
The most memorable moment on the day was…
Standing on the beach holding my husband’s hands feeling the sand in our toes and sun on our skin.
Any last advice or words of wisdom that you can share…
Find some time for yourself the morning of your big day. Take a deep breath and relax. The day goes so fast, so it’s important to enjoy every moment of it!
