SE­LENA & LACH­LAN

THE COU­PLE: Se­lena Deven­port and Lach­lan Robert­son THE LOVE STORY: “We met at the start of 2014 as we both started work­ing at the new Gold Coast light rail – Lachie as a con­troller and my­self as a tram driver,” Se­lena says. “Af­ter ask­ing me out a cou­ple of times and me say­ing ‘No thanks, I don't date work­mates!’ I fi­nally gave in, fall­ing for his charm, sense of hu­mour and dash­ing good looks. I knew he was the man for me.” Turns out he’s also pretty good at plan­ning pro­pos­als. “We were en­joy­ing a hol­i­day in Kingscliff,” Se­lena says. “Lachie popped the ques­tion (af­ter ask­ing my fa­ther’s per­mis­sion) with a beau­ti­ful ring he’d cho­sen. It was very ro­man­tic and to­tally un­ex­pected, on the bal­cony un­der the stars on a moon­lit night.” THE BIG DAY: March 11, 2017 at RACV Royal Pines, Benowa. “It was such a beau­ti­ful day,” Se­lena says. “I think the most mem­o­rable mo­ment was be­ing sur­rounded by our fam­i­lies and friends, some we hadn’t seen for years and oth­ers who had flown from in­ter­state to share our spe­cial day to­gether.” She says it was the per­fect day that went off with­out a hitch. THE SOUND­TRACK: The aisle song was This Year’s Love by David Gray and the first dance was to Per­fect by Ed Sheeran. THE DRESS: “The dress was En­chant­ing by Mon Cheri from Fer­rari Bridal,” Se­lena says. “It was a chif­fon A-line gown with a hand-beaded lace sweet­heart bodice. I found it the first day I went dress shop­ping and didn’t need to look any­more.”
