When Lauren and Aidan first met, they were too caught up in the busyness of everyday life to notice a spark.
“We were both busy with our own lives, both previously being married with a child each,” Lauren, 32, says.
“We both found ourselves single at the same time in 2016 and started chatting, which turned into catching up.”
Aidan, 31, proposed at home with a photo collage full of memories the couple had created together.
When it came to the Perth couple’s romantic elegant wedding, they wanted to make sure it was a true reflection of them – from the food, photography the music, right down to the ceremony itself.
“We wrote our own vows, and only invited our closest family and friends to create a more intimate wedding,” Lauren says of the April 6, 2018 wedding at Heathcote Reserve, Applecross.
Fifty friends and family attended the day and joined in the reception celebrations at Bells Functions.
“We really focused on the intimacy of the wedding, incorporating little details like involving our children in the ceremony, and just bringing everyone together for an amazing party,” Lauren says.
“Our wedding was 100 per cent us! Our kids carried the rings, our friends and family helped and it was intimate.”
