Jennifer & Dean were both taking a lifesaving course in Sydney when they met, as the course was six weeks long, it allowed them plenty of time to get to know one another as friends. On the last day of the course, Dean summoned up enough courage to ask Jennifer out on a date.
Their beautiful wedding took place at Manly Golf Course. The Groom and his Groomsmen donned matching tuxedos, and the bride wore three gorgeous dresses. The bridal party all stunned in beautiful shades of lilac dresses with coordinating bouquets. Their beautiful feature film by Soda Films captures the essence of their day among family and friends.
How Did He Propose?
I got home from work one day and stepped into the apartment block that we lived in. I could hear my favourite song playing through the halls and in front of me was a trail of rose petals leading up the stairs and into the apartment. When I got into the apartment, I continued to follow the trail of rose petals into the bedroom where I found Dean, down on one knee holding a diamond ring. Dean then asked me to marry him and of course I said yes! Dean had then organised for a luxury car to pick us up and to take us to the restaurant Quay at Circular Quay for a degustation dinner, which I had always wanted to go to.
Tell Us About Your Dresses?
I had three dresses. The day before the ceremony, we had a traditional Chinese tea ceremony and I wore a traditional red jacket and skirt. The outfit was embroidered with dragons and phoenixes. On the day of the wedding, I wore a strapless ivory gown which had a lace overlay and little flowers all over the bodice. After the formalities at the reception, I changed into a traditional (and sparkly!) Chinese red dress embroidered with a floral pattern. The dress was floor length with a high collar. The top part of the dress was sheer across the shoulders.
What Was Your Vision For Your Wedding day?
I wanted our wedding day to be fun and relaxed, with lots of laughter. I wanted the styling to be elegant, yet also fresh and fun.
Did You Incorporate Any Traditions?
Yes, I changed into a traditional Chinese red dress (cheong sam) at the end of the night . We also had a traditional Chinese tea ceremony the day before the wedding where we served tea to our families as a sign of respect and gratitude.
What Was Your Favorite Moment Of The Day?
Dean’s favourite moment was seeing me walk down the aisle. My favourite moment was walking down the aisle to Dean and seeing him in tears!
