Samantha & Dylan
Our Love Story
We met on Tinder in 2016 and went on a couple of dates. From there we quickly fell in love with how much we had in common and how well we got along with each other's family and friends. We both have very similar values and dreams for our future. Both very family focused. Dylan is a very hard working person and he had already built his own home before we met so we moved in together later that year.
I'd done a lot more travel, so we levelled each other out nicely.
We have had a lot of adventures since we met including travelling to Thailand, Europe and parts of Australia. A while after we moved in together we bought a block of land which was where Dylan proposed in 2020 after we'd designed the engagement ring together with JAB Jewellers.
We designed and built our new home together last year before moving in June this year. We also gave birth to our son Rory in October last year and have added fur babies to the family over the years as well.
It's a bit of a running joke with our family and friends that we keep ourselves very busy and like to take a lot on. We've loved our adventure together so far and look forward to seeing what the future has in store for us as Mr & Mrs Ludbrook.
We absolutely loved our wedding day! All our vendors did an amazing job. We adored our venue Provenance, it all came together beautifully and the team there did a great job on the day of making sure things ran well. The food there is exceptional as well.
Courtney and Hamish from La Este Film are the dream team for the photography and videography. They make it all so easy and fun and we absolutely love all the photos and video.
Lana did an amazing job as our celebrant too. She was the celebrant for my sister's wedding in 2020 so it was lovely to have her for our wedding as well!
Rachelle from the Posie Place did an amazing job with all the florals and setting the place up with the Provenance team. Everything looked stunning!
Tom and Georgia and the band from Tom's Tunes were amazing as well from the beautiful acoustic music early on through to the party hits later. Georgia is a friend of ours as well so it was lovely to have her singing at our wedding!
We did first look photos around the grounds at Provenance before the ceremony which we are so glad we did. Saved us missing much of the party after the ceremony and meant Dylan and I got to spend more of our wedding day together which was lovely!
It was so lovely to have all our closest family and friends together to celebrate. We also had 6 of our grandparents in attendance at the wedding which was very special for us!
