Our Love Story
Love can be a funny thing. It can bring the person you’re meant to spend your life with into your orbit years before you’re ready to fall in love. For Claire and Zac, they first met eighteen years ago but waited four years before going on their first date. Creating a life together over the next fourteen years, Claire and Zac grew their family by adding a fur-baby and a real baby to the mix.
Choosing Lorne as the spot for their wedding was an easy decision, the couple consider it their second home and it holds a sacred significance to their relationship. Spending their lives around water, the couple hold fond memories of family trips in overloaded Ford Falcons to Cumberland River, summer holidays in Torquay, a special family home in Lorne and last minute surf trips that may or may not have ended in camping in the front seat of a car. Holding on to their connection to the surf, Claire and Zac wanted to honour all the natural beautiful this country has to offer when they chose the location for their wedding day.
Staying true to what matters most to them, Claire honoured Zac’s New Zealand family who couldn’t attend the wedding with a surprise band – a thoughtful touch that resulted in a lot of tissues.
With the sand between their toes and their hearts filled to the brim, Claire and Zac can now add their wedding to the list of reasons why this little corner of the earth is just so very special.
