Being married comes with a lovely new sense of contentment and solidarity, which really is the most wonderful feeling. Enjoy Lauren & Hamish's story.
Our gorgeous bride Lauren and her husband Hamish. Beautifully captured by Merge Photography.
Where you first met?
Hamish and I met out at a bar in Claremont in 2012. Hamish is actually the cousin of a very good friend of mine, so we both knew who each other were. We couldn't believe we hadn't met sooner
When did you know it was love?
When Hamish went away to work in Europe for a few months. Distance makes the heart grow fonder.
9 June 2018. Hamish was working fly in/fly out at the time. He told me he had to stay an extra week at work. I had just been out at coffee with Hamish's mum and Hamish told me there was a package being delivered to our house so I had to be home by a certain time. When I arrived home, there was a note at the front door saying your package is inside. When I walked into our bedroom, there was rose petals all over our bed and Hamish had wrote on our mirror "Will you marry me?" and then he popped out of nowhere and proposed. It was the biggest surprise of my life and both of our families had been in on it. Our families and friends all came to celebrate with us over the next two days. What a weekend!
