The couple met whilst lifeguarding at their local pool, their casual jobs whilst they were studying at university. “Jared proposed on a hike in Wellington Park, Tasmania. He found the perfect moment as we were overlooking Hobart, in between my crazy changes in conversation because I could sense the proposal! I love his infectious and fun-loving personality. I love the balance we create as a team. I love that we found one another to grow old and wrinkly with,” said Gabrielle.

When it came to planning their ideal wedding day they hoped to strike the balance between ticking off the important formalities whilst creating a fun party atmosphere for their guests. “It’s so tricky to narrow down exactly what variables create the perfect balance – but we think we created something special. It truly was the best, day, ever,” added Gabrielle.

“My favourite moment from the day was walking down the leafy pathway (the aisle) to my husband-to-be, and seeing him with tears of happiness,” she said.

Style on the day was relaxed and beautiful with Gabrielle choosing a soft lace Gwendolynne Burkin gown. “Gwendolynne Burkin is divine. The attention to detail is incredible in her design, but also in her custom production. I trusted Gwendolynne completely and it was so lovely visiting her Fitzroy studio for fittings. I choose the dress, Aya, from the Gwendolynne White collection. It was just what I was looking for,” explained Gabrielle.

Gabrielle’s Advice

Do your research and choose your vendors (i.e. cost, style, personality) wisely but try to forget about the financial output. Everything wedding related is expensive, and it’s so hard to contemplate spending so much in one day. But honestly, you’ll enjoy the day 100 fold if you let that financial pressures go.
