Michael and Sally
Michael and I met almost 5 years ago after an ‘Eagles Vs Dockers’ Derby (AFL match) in which the West Coast Eagles were victorious! We were both out celebrating (in Fremantle) when my friend (and future bridesmaid Kate) pointed out a guy wearing his WCE guernsey on the dance floor! Still on the high of celebrating the win, and thinking ‘this guy must be a bit of a legend’ I approached him and we got to talking and the rest as they say is history! We have literally been inseparable since.
My little sister, Kristen Lily was my flowergirl and my father Craig walked me down the aisle. Our beautiful flowers were by Rebecca at ‘Pick Me Function Flowers’.
With some help from our families we were able to plan the wedding within 18months, and as soon as we visited Caversham House I was in love with the gardens and Marquee and couldn’t imagine a more perfect location for our wedding day! We were a little bit worried as it was quite wet and rainy in Perth the few weeks leading up to the wedding, but on the day the weather was perfection.
The ceremony went off without a hitch, and there were plenty of happy tears shed! I am proud to say that I held myself together quite well, and only required one emergency tissue (thanks Jenni!).
The beautiful gardens at Caversham House made a perfect backdrop for our photos. We had so much fun exploring the grounds and celebrated with our bridal party with a bottle of champagne by the river.
My little sister Kristen (4yrs) was such a fabulous flower girl on the day! She did a perfect job of walking down the aisle, posing for photos and at the reception she was the last one on the dance floor! The next day she asked us ‘Is that it? Is the wedding over?‘. While we were exhausted I think she was ready to do it all over again!
The reception was so much fun! The decorations came together so well to create an elegant, soft and romantic feel, the food was delicious and the speeches were very touching and sincere.
The table numbers handmade by myself while the flowers and decorations were supplied by ‘Touched by Angels’.

Once the Bridal Waltz was over it was time to party with everyone (especially the groom’s Dad ‘Mike’) tearing up the dance floor to a mixture of old school hits and new music. I especially loved the bridesmaids moves to ‘I’m sexy and I know it’! (as per picture). We also had a photobooth for the night which was a huge hit with all the guests! Even Michael’s grandma threw on a few dress ups and got involved! Everyone said they had a great time and we couldn’t have been happier with the day as a whole.
A big thank you to all of our friends and family that shared in our special day! It was filled with lots of love and laughter, and was the perfect way to celebrate our marriage.

Ms Gingham says: Oh that sweet little flowergirl… I love the picture where she’s craning her neck to see Sally and Michael kiss. What a beautiful day. Thanks go to Sally and Michael for sharing it with us.
Sally says: “I am a 25yr old Speech Pathologist from Perth WA. I recently married the love of my life (my Plumber hubby Michael) on a lovely spring day in October. :)”
