Marquee Magic

 
  

Laura & Luke Edwards • 15th October, 2010  

Laura and Luke met at a fundraising course six years ago. During the networking workshop, the participants were asked to sit next to someone they didn’t already know. Laura had noticed Luke on the first day, and decided that this would be a great opportunity to get to know him. 

Although they chatted in-between presentations, they didn’t exchange contact details, and when Luke didn’t attend the last day of the course, Laura thought she’d never see him again. Fortunately, Luke knew that Laura worked for the Red Cross and phoned her there the following Monday – and it wasn’t long before the pair met for their first official date. 

Laura says that Luke’s proposal was both perfect and a complete surprise. He took her away for a weekend at a luxury cottage on the South Coast. On Saturday night they opted for a night in, and Laura went to hire a DVD while Luke stayed at the cottage, saying he would start cooking their dinner. When Laura returned, it was to a candle-lit room and a very romantic proposal. 

The couple chose Verandahs Terrara House Estate on the South Coast as the venue for their wedding, which Laura says was the best day of her life. She and her bridesmaids got dressed in the Estate’s gorgeous bridal salon, enjoying a delicious high tea while the make-up artist and hair stylist worked their magic. 

A relaxed and intimate ceremony followed at a tiny country church. A friend of the couple sang Billy Joel’s Just the Way You Are, and the pair all but danced out of the church to Queen’s You’re My Best Friend

A photo shoot at a local circus resulted in some stunning images that Laura and Luke treasure as a delightful memento of a perfect day. 

Luke and Laura’s goal was to make their day a reflection of who they are as a couple: from the fun invitations and a photo booth, to their bomboniere: a CD of their favourite songs. Their selection of music was also very important to them: they entered the marquee to Luke’s favourite song, Disco Inferno, and danced their bridal waltz to Al Green’s Let’s Stay Together. Following the bridal waltz, the fun really began when the couple broke out into a Footloose dance routine! 

Laura and Luke agree that the most wonderful thing about their day was celebrating their new lives together with their closest family and friends.
