Sarah & Angus
As seen in Geelong Wedding Guide Magazine
Playing games and true love don’t usually go hand-in-hand but for Sarah and Angus, it was a friendly match of beach volleyball that brought them together (see what we did there?)
Starting their love story as friends, the pair decided to finally take the next step in their relationship and after exploring Europe together they moved into their first place as girlfriend and boyfriend. As the world closed its doors during the pandemic, Sarah and Angus were revelling in the fact that they could spend more time together and sealed the deal with a new business venture.
Finally out of one of our many lockdowns, Angus organised a much needed day out to the Mornington Peninsula. Heading to the exact same spot were Angus first asked Sarah to be his girlfriend, the pair spent the day soaking up good food and wine before berry picking in the afternoon. Using this wholesome moment to his advantage, Andy pretended to pick the perfect berry – bending down and getting Sarah’s attention to look at the huge ‘berry’ he had picked. Pulling out Sarah’s engagement ring and turning to propose to the love of his life, the engagement was a moment of pure joy for the couple.
Planning their dream day was a creative adventure for Sarah and Angus. Choosing Barunah Plains as their wedding venue, the pair set to work on bringing together incredible vendors that would bring their vision to life, as well as taking on countless DIY projects themselves.
Unfortunately for Sarah and Angus, Mother Nature had other ideas in mind when their wedding day arrived. While they prepared for the biggest day of their lives, a lot of the state was under water with floods ravaging the area. Impacting the couple’s day from the start, the roads surrounding their venue was shut off with detours in place and the bridge from their ceremony to the reception space was under water. Crediting the quick thinking of their wedding planner, and a little bit of luck, the venue moved quick to use large trucks to get Sarah and Angus’ wedding guests from one spot to another and the water receded in enough time to get everyone to the ceremony before Sarah walked down the aisle.
Embracing the sunshine that came out as the couple affirmed their love for each other, Sarah and Angus’ wedding was the beam of light that was needed during a chaotic time. Radiating love and fun, and relishing in the incredible celebration they had managed to create together, Sarah and Angus feel so lucky to have had the wedding day of their dreams become a reality. Rain, hail and a whole lotta shine, nothing was going to keep this love story back.
