What’s your husband's name and how did you meet?

My husbands name is Jimmyson Aru, we met at the Sunset Pool on Iririki Island in Vanuatu.  We never stopped talking and knew straight away we were meant to be together. 

How long have you been together and how did he propose?

We have been together for just over a year, and J proposed to me at Moorings Resort Vanuatu by preparing a tropical Island Breakfast by the Ocean. It was the most amazing morning and the most beautiful Suprise. 

What is the most amazing thing about your man?

The most amazing thing about my man is that he has the biggest heart,

 he is so kind and caring and his smile can light up any room.  


How would you describe your wedding in one word?

A Dream!


What is your favourite memory from your wedding? 

My favourite memory was walking down the aisle on the traditional Island custom mats from Ambae

Ambae is the island my partner is from so walking down on these mats was extremely special. I also loved after the wedding, when we spent the night dancing and laughing.


Where was your wedding located? What made you choose this location? 

We had our Wedding at Aore Island in Santo! The amazing wedding planner Montana from the Island grabbed our attention. She was so organised and helpful, we knew we had to have our wedding at Aore. 

Plus, who can resist a beautiful Island wedding, we were so lucky as we had the Island to ourselves.


Any advice for our brides-to-be?

Relax, stay calm and remember it all works out in the end. 

Good luck on your magical day! It really is the best day of your life. 


Who created your gorgeous gown? 

My mum actually purchased my Wedding Gown from a small designer overseas. 


You're a wife now! How does it feel to finally tie the knot?

It feels amazing to be husband and wife. I knew from the moment I met my husband I will marry him.


Where did you go on your honeymoon? 

We went to Turtle Bay Lodge in Santo for our honeymoon! We had a beautiful glamping type cabin, It was so stunning!


How was your experience as a Forever Soles bride?

It was magical ! I absolutely loved every minute and wish I could do it all over again.
