En­joy Emma and Liam’s home-grown love story

Style Magazine - - Contents - BY HIA CHOWD­HURY

It was the in­trigue of beauty that led Liam and Emma to meet. Des­per­ately wish­ing to meet her, an at­tempt at print­ing a doc­u­ment in front of her went awry for Liam.

De­vis­ing a Plan B, it was when he had filled up his water bot­tle in the front of­fice when they met through Emma’s mother — Liam’s work col­league.

From ac­quain­tances to friends and fi­nally a cou­ple, they re­alised their love for each other the mo­ment the groom had left to work was when re­al­i­sa­tion struck — Emma couldn’t bear for them to be apart.

Along­side the red­dish-or­ange hues of au­tumn on April 1 at Gab­bin­bar Homestead, the cou­ple ex­changed their writ­ten vows.

The cou­ple had been to­gether for three-and-a-half years be­fore Liam pro­posed.

Liam booked a hol­i­day on the Sun­shine Coast for his pro­posal.

“He seemed so ner­vous be­fore we went out to din­ner but I never clicked on un­til we were ready to walk out the door and he got down on one knee,” Emma says. “Of course, I said yes!” With a clas­sic vin­tage colour scheme of dusty blue and ivory the cou­ple were sur­rounded by roses and na­tive fo­liage.

Emma walked down the aisle to Thank You for Lov­ing Me by Bon Jovi.

Their mu­si­cian, An­drzaj Fen­ner, played some di­vine acous­tic tunes, de­light­ing guests.

“Our wed­ding day was the most beau­ti­ful and mem­o­rable day of our life so far,” Emma says.

“Au­tumn is one of the most gor­geous times of the year in Toowoomba and it showed on the day — the weather was stun­ning [and] our day was full of so much love and laugh­ter — most of our guests had trav­elled a long way to cel­e­brate with us.”

The main high­light of the re­cep­tion was see­ing both the bride and the grooms’ fam­i­lies, as well as close friends cel­e­brat­ing, mingling, dancing and en­joy­ing each other’s com­pany.

When asked about the fu­ture, the cou­ple ex­plained that they look for­ward to many years of mar­riage, and have plans on trav­el­ling, ren­o­va­tion, ad­ven­tures in the fu­ture and chil­dren.
