We met at the Steyne Hotel in Manly in 2006. After months of checking each other out (although Phil usually tells people I stalked him!) over the dance floor Phil finally plucked up the courage (again Phil tells this part of the story differently!) to start a conversation with me. And the rest as they say is history!
We chose Neilsen Park for our engagement shoot because when we first moved out together we lived in Rose Bay, and many happy memories were made at Neilsen Park during the beautiful Sydney summers. We love to travel. In fact, when we got engaged we decided to go to France and Italy for a month instead of getting started with wedding plans! Phil & I still think that Neilsen Park is one of our favourite spots on earth, despite having been to some pretty amazing places during our travels.
Our engagement story is not a hugely romantic affair- all of our friends know that I was getting a tad impatient and ruined Phil’s plans of proposing during dinner after a drink at the Steyne where we met! He ended up proposing on the couch at home! Although not crazily romantic, it was very us!
