When Ben proposed to Samantha she was pregnant with their little girl Abigail, and there was no question, she was definitely going to play a big part on their wedding day. The week before the wedding, Abigail celebrated her first birthday. 

Ben’s proposal took place at their favourite Chinese restaurant in Brisbane. Ben asked for some champagne at dinner, which was unusual considering Samantha was pregnant. He then proceeded to say how much he loved her and how he had been wanting to give her a special present. The present was gorgeous pink baby shoes they had already picked out together earlier that day, however, tied to the ribbon on the shoes was an antique-style emerald engagement ring. Ben then got down on one knee and Samantha obviously answered yes.

The perfect setting for their outdoor garden wedding was Bundaleer Rainforest Gardens at Brookfield in Brisbane.

Samantha walked down the aisle on her father’s arm to “I wasn’t expecting that” by Jamie Lawson where she was greeted by Ben. Abigail was naturally part of the ceremony, even where Ben went and picked her up to join mum and dad at the alter.  Their heartwarming ceremony was carried out by the lovely marriage celebrant Tracey Moyle.

The DIY handcrafted pieces for the reception were created with love and involved Abigail making it a family affair. The couple purchased raw MDF table numbers and sprayed them with gold paint. Ben was in charge of the table chart; the canvas featured Abigail’s footprints and handprints. The table centrepieces included mason jars filled with babies breath and printed with different quotes, and scented candles to create a romantic ambience in the barn like room.

I love this new trend where the newlyweds do their bridal waltz as soon as they enter the reception, its a signal to the guests to get this party started right! Samantha & Ben did their first dance to “Just the Way You Are” by Bruno Mars.

Samantha & Ben honeymooned at the Mangoes Resort in Vanuatu which they highly recommend. 

When asking Samantha & Ben what was their top priority when planning their wedding? they answered “Photography was number 1 for us as a couple. We really wanted the best photographer to capture our precious moments especially as our daughter turned 1 earlier that same week.“.

When asking Samantha & Ben what was the best memory from their wedding day? they answered “Perhaps the scariest and most enjoyable part was saying my vows to Ben, everything came from the heart that day and it was extra special to see the love in his eyes as he said his vows also.“.

When asking Samantha & Ben what was the best funny moment from their wedding day? they answered “Abigail our daughter was not happy sitting with her grandparents and Ben decided to ‘walk’ her over to where we were having the ceremony up onto the deck (Abigail is mainly crawling still) it was a very special moment and cute as pie. She interrupted our ceremony and the celebrant (Tracey Moyle) said should we proceed and I said “it’s not your day Abigail it’s mine” hahaha“.

When asking Samantha & Ben what advice would they give future brides and grooms? they answered “Don’t focus too much on the small things, take a small break as soon as the ceremony is done (perhaps when you’re getting photos done) and breathe in the moment together as a couple. This is a once in a lifetime thing and the whole day is over in a flash, remember the amazing parts of it and always SMILE :)“.

When asking Samantha & Ben if there is anything else they would like to share about their wedding experience? they answered “We loved everything about our wedding, it’s very intimate and personal to us. Its best to focus on you as a couple and try to make shared decisions.

Ben and I had a sensational time, both Tegan and yourself were so easy to work with and nothing was a hassle for you both. We had a great day and it was only made better knowing you captured some amazing memories for us to share.
