How they met-

Justin and Mel met at Latin Dance class where Mel was teaching and Justin came to see if he’d like it – 18 months later he was still dancing and they became really great friends. Justin worked up the courage to ask Mel to go out with him on a date and the rest is history.

The Proposal-

Justin asked Mel to marry him on Christmas Eve (2012) as he knew Christmas is such a magical time for Mel.

He then hand picked a diamond and let Mel design the ring she has always dreamt of.

 The Wedding-

Mel and Justin wanted an intimate wedding  to celebrate the day with their close family and friends. If you check out the candid photos you can see they couldn’t stop smiling the whole day – both being so excited to marry each other and celebrate on the dance floor!! And you can tell how excited we were by the smiles and the laughter during the ceremony.

Glynis & Trevor Phillips (Mel’s Mum and Dad) and Sandra & Brian Reis (Justin’s Mum and Dad) were very generous to host their wedding at the Royal QLD Yacht Squadron at Manly. It is such a beautiful location on the bay and the photo session was so much fun!!

 The Honeymoon –

Seven  nights at Peregian in a house right on the beach and 7 nights in the rainforest of Montville in their own cabin. The best of both worlds – it must have been soooo hard to leave such gorgeous locations!!
