Sean, 31, met Stefanie, 27, in a nightclub and their friendship blossomed into a lasting relationship over the next year. They became engaged when Sean hired a huge holiday house in the rainforest at Port Douglas and popped the question one evening just after sunset. 'It was a lovely and romantic surprise,' says the bride.

Stefanie said 'I do' in the garden of Vaucluse House wearing an ivory satin gown with sweetheart neckline and georgette ruffles. 'We used twig wreaths with sprigs of lavender on the chairs along the aisle,' she recalls


The couple celebrated at Doltone House. 'It was lovely with lots of dark wood and fairy light chandeliers, so the colour scheme was kept to white and ivory to complement this,' says Stefanie.


The couple chose a two-tier ivory cake, which had a metallic finish with white-lace motif and a posy of sugar flowers on top. As a finishing touch, French alphabet cards in silver frames were used in lieu of table numbers.
