Together for 6 years before becoming engaged, Brooke + Liam grew up in the same small home town and had known each other from quite a young age. "We would often hang out together, we both moved away after primary school and it wasn't until we both came home 7 years later and reconnected at the local pub for a town function, we got to talking and it was all history from there." Brooke shares.

the proposal.
Liam had told me earlier that day he had made reservations at our favourite place to eat. As we'd had a bit of a hectic week, I wasn't eager at all and really wanted to cancel but we got there, sat down and the band started to play our favourite song. I still didn't think anything of it!  Liam walked over shaking like a leaf, dropped a knee and asked me to marry him in front of 100's of people. Everyone clapped and cheered and I was totally taken by surprise.

the venue.
The Glass Chapel at Intercontinental Sanctuary Cove in Hope Island was always our first pick because of its absolutely stunning floor to ceiling glass facade overlooking the water, it is breathtaking.

We chose to have our reception at Skypoint in Surfers Paradise because its located atop the Q1 Resort and Spa which was our very first holiday together 8 years before so we thought would be really special.

wedding theme.
We wanted a very flashy, modern wedding. All of our styling was white and gold and with the panoramic views of the Gold Coast from 77 floors up - it was a an absolute dream. Our stylist nailed it.

favourite moment.
Walking into our reception space and seeing the styling for the first time it was absolutely amazing and how happy all of our friends and family were welcoming us.

favourite detail.
Our white gloss bridal table, white rose flower wall and our dry ice machine during our first dance.

dress/suit shopping experience.
I knew for quite some time that I wanted my dress to be custom made by Holly Rose Couture. When it was time to go meet with Taya the designer, she exceeded my expectations. It was a breeze and she made everything so easy for me.

Liam’s suit was custom made by Black Jacket Suiting and he had the most pleasant experience.

what does marriage mean to you?
Marriage means a lifelong commitment of unquestioning love, being there for each other through the best times and the worst times and never giving up on each other.

classic stories.
Just as the celebrant asked my 6 year old for our rings he dropped the box and was frantically trying his best to pick them up as quickly as he could, it was super cute and the all of our guests thought it was so funny!

advice.
My biggest piece of advice would be if you are thinking about getting a videographer do not hesitate, the day goes by so fast and you don't remember so much of it, the best feeling is getting to sit down and relive it all again with your video footage. I would also say relax and don't stress about the things that could go wrong, if they do your surrounded by all the people who love you most and are there to support you.
