Now ap­proach­ing two years to­gether, Robert and Sarah Goulds are hap­pily mar­ried and look­ing for­ward to their fu­ture.

The cou­ple were mar­ried at the Gab­bin­bar Home­stead in April this year, with a neu­tral colour pal­ette, big na­tive flow­ers, navy blue suits for the grooms­men and flo­ral dresses for the brides­maids.

“Rob and I have very dif­fer­ent styles – he’s a clas­sic style per­son, where I am pre­pared to take a few more theme risks – but we found a bal­ance,” Sarah said.

Hav­ing searched Google for ideas, the cou­ple then wrote their own vows, putting some thought into what they wanted to say on their big day.

“We spent time read­ing and think­ing about the sig­nif­i­cance of the day and found a few op­tions we then mashed to­gether,” Robert said.

The cou­ple first met through a mu­tual friend in 2014.

“I ‘friend-zoned’ Rob for a while, but he per­sisted and I’m glad he did,” re­mem­bered Sarah, who de­scribes Robert as a de­tailed, wise and fun per­son.

“He has a great sense of hu­mour, he is very smart, and he’s al­ways fun to be with. He seems to know about ev­ery­thing – a true ‘know it all’ – and I love that about him,” she said.

“I knew within the first month of dat­ing that I wanted to marry Sarah. She has so many amaz­ing qual­i­ties and I thought I’d be mad not to marry her. She has a con­ta­gious per­son­al­ity that lights up any room she en­ters,” Robert said.

He caught the proposal on video, fly­ing his drone above the spot where they shared their first kiss.

“We went for a walk along the Noosa head­land. When we reached the spot, I handed the drone over to Sarah while I got the ring out. I dropped to one knee and cap­tured the whole thing to share with fam­ily and friends,” re­mem­bered Robert.

Af­ter their wed­ding, the cou­ple trav­elled to New Zealand for their hon­ey­moon.

“Who wants to spend 13 or more hours on a plane af­ter get­ting mar­ried, am I right? We spent two weeks driv­ing around the South Is­land and got to ex­pe­ri­ence snow fall­ing for the first time. For us, it rep­re­sented the be­gin­ning of new mem­o­ries and ex­pe­ri­ences to­gether,” Robert said. To­day, Sarah said she was happy to re­lax and see where their fu­ture headed.

“Rob is a bit of a plan­ner, so he has some ideas mapped out – travel, get a dog, do some ren­o­va­tions, have kids. I’m happy to be a bit more re­laxed, so we’ll work it all out as we go along,” she said. The cou­ple en­cour­ages soon-to-be new­ly­weds to do the hard yards up front and Sarah rec­om­mends lock­ing in your date, venue, bridal party, and theme, as soon as pos­si­ble.

“From there, just cre­ate a time­line and stick to it,” she said.
