SHAI-LEE & LUKE

THE COU­PLE: Shai-Lee Collins, 23, pub­lic ser­vant and Luke Spring, 25, fac­tory hand THE LOVE STORY: The new­ly­weds met in school at Banora Point High in 2008. “Luke pro­posed to me while we were pack­ing up our tiny apart­ment in Rain­bow Bay to move into our first home, which we pur­chased in Tumbulgum when he was 23 and I was 21,” Shai-Lee says. “I had no make-up on, my hair was a mess and I was in sweat pants and a baggy T-shirt, but he still thought it was the per­fect time to ask me to be his wife. It was beau­ti­ful.” THE BIG DAY: Jan­uary 25, with the cer­e­mony on the beach at Fin­gal Heads, fol­lowed by a re­cep­tion at The Ivory Tav­ern. There were no bub­bles for this blush­ing bride, who was around four months preg­nant with their first baby, due April 7. “The whole day was like a per­fect dream, but our favourite part was the re­cep­tion, fan­tas­tic food, awe­some vibe and lots of fun,” Shai-Lee says. THE DRESS: “My dress was the Leilani style from Bo­hemian Brides in Miami. It was ac­tu­ally the very first dress I tried on. I went on to try a lot of dresses, but none of them com­pared to that one.” THE SOUND­TRACK: “Our wed­ding song was Ed Sheeran’s Per­fect (the orig­i­nal ver­sion) and our first dance was Daryl Braith­waite’s Horses.”
