Real Wedding QandA With Tanya and Kieran

Tanya and Kieran’s wedding day was heaps of fun with an unexpected twist after their wedding ceremony….

Tell us about the proposal…where was it, how did it happen, did it go as planned?

The proposal happened at the Marina Bay Sands when we were on our trip to Singapore and South Africa. He proposed on the first evening of our trip but unfortunately it did not go as planned. The news was spilt to me about a month before we left for our trip – so I knew it was coming, however I did not tell anyone that I knew. I wouldn’t want to spoil all his hard work!

Kieran I believe had planned to propose at dinner at the sky restaurant and the staff almost spoilt the surprise a number of times by wishing us “Happy Anniversary”! He decided not propose in the restaurant because the seating was quite close, instead we went back to our hotel room where I walked in to be stunned by a bed laid in beautiful rose petals and towel swans (looks better than it sounds) then he got down on one knee and you can guess the rest!

How did you choose Sirromet for your wedding? What was important to you?

We had our first visit to Sirromet a couple of months before the proposal for a wine tasting tour – we fell in love with the venue, it was just perfect and we wanted to be able to have the ceremony and reception at the same venue. It was so picturesque and the staff were just so kind – it wasn’t really a choice when it came to choosing a venue.

The look for the wedding was also perfectly complimented by Sirromet – I wanted a modern rustic look for the day and who doesn’t adore great food and wine!
