It has been ten years in the making. I first met Guy in October 2007, at the local pub. We hung out, got to know each other and then bam! We were standing on top of the hill, near the house we had built together, looking out over Gungahlin. Lights twinkled bright as rain trickled from the sky. Guy told me to close my eyes and hold out my hands. Standing there, in perfect frog spotting weather, I naturally assumed the surprise to come would be somewhat slimey and eager to jump on my face. So who can blame me when my first reaction to the love of my life, down on one knee, box in hand, with ring lit up, asking “will you be wife”, was “WHAT THE HELL?!” followed by (eventually) “OF COURSE!!”
With a date locked in, a photographer, a celebrant and a caterer all confirmed, the fun has begun!
We have been approaching the whole day from an art installation perspective. Making what we can, and gathering what we can find. The list of “exhibition pieces” is long. Felted flowers, giant LOVE sign, wedding dress, tie dye shoes, and that’s just what I’ve thought up so far!
Think Rainbows and Sunshine! (fingers crossed for sunshine on the day!)
