Get a heart flutter from a lo­cal love story

Style Magazine - - Editor's Note | Contents -

It was love at first shared laugh­ter — ex­cept at the time they weren’t aware of it.

Ar­ranged by mu­tual friends, the newly-wed cou­ple Brock and Peta Mcin­tyre (nee What­more) met at Amigo’s for their blind date and be­came in­stant best friends.

When asked about the pro­posal, the bride an­swered it was a night she would never for­get.

Brock had pre-ar­ranged for fairy lights to be lit along the path to a big tree as soon as they stepped out­side for their “walk” at Gip’s Restaurant, fool­ing Peta, who had as­sumed they were mo­tion sen­sored lights. It was un­der that tree he pro­posed. She said yes. With a clas­sic and el­e­gant theme in navy, yel­low and a splash of red, they tied the knot in an in­ti­mate cer­e­mony at Rangeville Com­mu­nity Church on Satur­day, July 1, with their re­cep­tion held at the High­fields Cultural Cen­tre.

“When we first started dat­ing, Brock would try to draw a heart on me to say he loves me, but they al­ways ended up look­ing more like ap­ples,” Peta laughs.

“So in re­sponse I’d say ap­ple un­til he drew some­thing closer to a heart.”

A sen­ti­ment that car­ried into their wed­ding as a per­son­alised and unique bon­bon­niere — an ap­ple.

The high­light of the re­cep­tion was the groom’s speech, straight from the heart and not a dry eye in the room in­clud­ing the bride’s.

Ra­di­at­ing love and smiles all around they thanked ev­ery­one who at­tended, near and far.

Es­pe­cially to Brett Buck­ley, from Wip­pell’s, who pro­vided a ve­hi­cle last-minute for the cou­ple.

“At the end of the day the only thing that truly mat­ters is that you are mar­ry­ing the per­son you love and have cho­sen to spend the rest of your life with,” Peta says. “Your wed­ding day is one day. “Your mar­riage is for the rest of your life.”

Your wed­ding day is one day. Your mar­riage is for the rest of your life. PETA MCIN­TYRE
