Real Wedding QandA With Amy and Kerry

A special thanks to Amy and Kerry for sharing details from their wedding, I’m sure their wedding will inspire other couples planning their wedding.

So here goes…

Tell us about the proposal…did it go as planned?

Kerry: I took Amy out for a surprise dinner for her birthday at Brett’s Wharf, I organised so that close friend would also attend.  Everyone thought we were there to celebrate Amy’s birthday so it was a relaxed environment.  It was a Friday night and the restaurant was full and my nerves were growing, we had just finished our main meals and I thought to myself  ‘this is it’  I started to make a speech wishing Amy a happy birthday, I couldn’t even string a full sentence together, I then said I have something else to add, I pulled the ring out of my pocket and got down on bended knee and said ‘Amy I love you, will you marry me’?  All I remember was Amy turning to Emma and bursting into tears.  After the longest wait of my life Amy finally turned back and looked at me and nodded saying yes!! I stood up to the entire restaurant applauding; it was a beautiful moment that was sealed with a kiss.

Amy: When we went out for dinner, I just thought it would be Kerry and I, and then when I got there I saw everyone and was quite surprised.  I thought something was up when Emma and Kerry both got up to go to the bathroom at the same time.  When Kerry proposed to me I turned and looked at Emma and burst into tears I was happy, surprised and shocked all at once.

OK, let’s chat about your wedding…

How did you chose your wedding and reception venues? What was important?

We had a work function there many years ago and we fell in love with Sirromet, especially the ‘Barrel Room’.  Amy said that she would love to get married here some day (with a innocent look on her face).  We didn’t want our guests to have to travel from place to place so it was important that Sirromet could look after us and our guests for both the ceremony and reception.
