THE ENGAGEMENT

 

After almost 5 years together Nico and I openly chatted about our

future and I knew that he’ll pop the question sooner rather than later. It

wasn’t until the Christmas break a couple of years ago that his mum flew all

the way from New Zealand to spend Christmas with my family in my home

town, Ljubljana. It was a truly hectic weekend, with both of our families in one

place! Finally, one night we managed to sneak out for an evening out to

ourselves, eating and drinking in one of our favourite spots in the city. I

remember getting a bit tipsy after a few cocktails that night and just saying

to Nico ‘I know that this will set me back 6 months to a year, but I really

thought you’ll pop the question over this holiday.’ Nico was just silent and

didn’t say a word. I felt awful afterwards thinking I’ve spoiled everything

again. Little did I know that Nico was actually planning to propose that

weekend but was waiting for a bit of alone time with my dad to ask for his

blessing and he was hoping to do it on a snowy day. Well 2 days later, it did

start to snow, and after he managed to drag me out on the cold again, we

walked through the city with snow slowly falling on the ground, and in the

middle of a park, he asked me to marry him!

The Wedding Date

Monday June 5th, 2016

The Wedding Location

Most of our guests flew from various different

locations around the world, so we wanted to have a little holiday with

everyone over the wedding weekend and a chance to properly catch up. We

chose the beautiful city of Dubrovnik in Croatia Croatia. We had the ceremony

at Sponza Palace, followed by a reception on the Palm Terrace of Hotel

Excelsior.

RANDOM FACT

We wanted the ceremony to be very personable,

relaxed and unique to us, so we had our dear friend Vincent, who introduced

us all those years ago, acting as a celebrant. Vincent knew us both separately

long before we met so we couldn’t think of a better person for this job. We

also wrote our own vows that we didn’t share with each other beforehand so

there was this element of a surprise we had to look forward to as well. We

laughed and cried throughout the ceremony and it was such an amazing start

to the events that followed later on in the day, with celebrations that

continued till early hours in the morning.

ANY TIPS FOR OUR FUTURE BRIDES? 

 

Don’t sweat

the small stuff! Someone said to me that there will always be things that

won’t go to plan on the wedding day or the lead up to it, no matter how hard

you try. It’s so true, as you’ll never be able to control everything around your

wedding day. The most important thing is to enjoy yourself and the company

of your friends and family as you’ll never get those moments back.
