What a day! Brad and Amanda are very much in love, and it showed. Thanks to the whole bridal party for making it just that, a PARTY!
How did you meet? At university where we were both studying teaching at the time
The proposal…. Very romantic – Brad proposed at the top of St Peter’s Basilica, at the Vatican in Rome when we travelled to Europe at the end of 2010
Funniest Moment: When Brad sprayed Amanda with a bottle of champagne during the photos
Favourite Wedding Day Moment: The entire day!!!
Advice for other brides: Enjoy the day!! It seems to go so quickly so enjoy every moment. If you are worried about how smoothly everything will run, then organize to run through the plan of the day with a close friend or family member and let them handle any hiccups as they occur. This will take a lot of the pressure off the Bride and Groom and allow you to enjoy every moment of your first day together as a married couple.
