Our Love Story
For Cobey and Tim, the night they first met is a night they will never forget…well, they’ll never remember it either! Sharing a cheeky kiss on an infamous Geelong dancefloor, 12 years later the couple have had their fair share of milestones. From an awkward ‘will you be my boyfriend?’ chat, a fur baby, a home, a perfectly planned proposal and a baby coming in 2023 (spoiler alert!), the pandemic had other plans for their wedding day. Moving their wedding day from December 2021 to April 2022 meant they could have their nearest and dearest travel from all over Australia and New Zealand for their special day. The world might have stopped in its tracks for nearly two years, but there was no stopping Cobey and Tim celebrating their love for each other.
When Cobey and Tim shared their wedding day with us, there was one special moment that stood out before they even said I do. A private first-look between the couple in the coastal town of Barwon Heads. A moment they will never forget.
Spending the night before the wedding with family at 19w Lofts, Cobey soaked up the good vibes with her loved ones before the rain decided to literally soak up her dress… Mother Nature had not turned on the perfect wedding-day weather for the couple and the rain did not hold back! Stress-cleaning her dress before walking down the aisle, Cobey was not going to let a little (or a lot) of rain dampen her spirits.
With Provence Wines as their backdrop Cobey and Tim said ‘I do’ with all their favourite people present. It wouldn’t be a family affair without the contribution of some special people – Cobey’s nephew took on the role of ring bearer and stole the show with his show-stopping personality while Cobey’s mother delivered a touching speech in Maori that was translated by Cobey’s niece in English.
After a few drinks to get the party going, Cobey could not escape the weather – making her grand entrance with her brand-new husband by slipping on some water! And not to be outdone, fire came to play with a candlestick and floral arrangement catching fire and wreaking havoc for a few moments. Sorry but can Mother Nature leave now?!
Embracing the night and refusing to let anything get in their way of having a good time, Cobey and Tim spent the evening making up for lost time thanks to COVID with their guests; staying present in the moment and acknowledging the long wait they had to get to that point.
Sometimes when the universe gives you lemons (read: water, fire and rain), all you can do is make lemonade. We’re sure nothing ever tasted sweeter for Cobey and Tim than the celebration of once in a lifetime love.
