How was your experience as a Forever Soles bride?

Wonderful! They were so comfortable and looked amazing, which is so rare to find in heels! I received so many compliments on them. 


Which shoes did you wear for your wedding?

Lucky Star Sandals


What was your favourite thing about your shoes?

The Star studs with the softness of the suede


How did you and your husband meet?

We met through a mutual friend when we were 19 and instantly hit it off


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

We have been together for almost 19 years! He proposed by letting our 4 month old hold my ring on my very first Mother’s Day and said “Zara would like to know if you would like the same surname as her?”. We were engaged for 5 years because we wanted to complete our family first. When we had our 2nd daughter Zoey we started planning the wedding. 


What is the most amazing thing about your man?

He is the best dad! He always puts us first and is always willing to do the snack run once the kids are in bed


How would you describe your wedding in one word? 



What is your favourite memory from your wedding?

Walking down the aisle to Joel with both of our daughters at my side


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

The Coach House at The Rift in Bowral. It was the perfect location to be able to stay with our family and host a relaxed wedding day


Any advice for our brides-to-be?

I work in the industry and still found it stressful! Listen to the advice of your vendors, they know what works and what doesn’t! 


Who created your gorgeous gown?

Baltic Born


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

Amazing! My eldest daughter loves that I have the same surname as her. 


Where did you go on your honeymoon? 

We haven’t gone on one yet, we’re waiting for the weather to be warmer.
