Kiara & Matthew
As seen in Geelong Wedding Guide Magazine
Our Love Story
It was Instagram that first connected Kiara and Matt. Matt requested to follow Kiara and in an attempt to play hard to get, Kiara didn’t follow him back. Fast forward to mutual friend’s cowboy themed 21st birthday party and Kiara made the ultimate power move - confidently walking up to Matt in her full cowgirl get-up, shaking his hand and introducing herself, knowing full-well who he was. From that moment on they’ve been inseparable and Kiara is the first to admit that Matt gives her butterflies every day.
Kiara and Matt credit their preparation and planning ahead of their wedding for everything going off without a hitch. Thanks to some incredible vendors, the couple were able to be fully present in their special moment and celebrate with their loved ones without a care.
A highlight for Kiara and Matt was the first time they locked eyes on each other at the ceremony. Kiara was so excited to see her husband-to-be smiling back at her, and share the dress that she had been dreaming of and could finally reveal!
A standout vendor for Kiara and Matt was Matt from Coastal Kombi Weddings. Matt went above and beyond for the couple on the day, totalling three trips back and forth to collect the bridal party and collect the couple at the end of the night as husband and wife. He even stepped in as their second photographer and took some amazing photos of the bridal party before the ceremony as well as some action shots at the end of the night – ain’t no hiding those dancefloor moves!
Set against the backdrop of Basil’s Farm, the couple were able to soak up the celebrations with their nearest and dearest, creating memories they will never forget. We’re pretty sure Kiara follows Matt on Insta now, and those butterflies are just the beginning of their happily ever after.
