Welcome to the very special Wedding of Paige and Todd, the epitome of high school sweethearts who started dating when they were only 17.  The couple envisioned a perfect garden-styled wedding and I think they achieved just that with an intimate affair of only 80 of their nearest and dearest.

We started dating at school when we were 17. Whilst on holiday, on the first night, we went out for dinner and when we got back to our room there was candles and petals everywhere. Todd got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. It was absolutely perfect.

My most important piece of advice for creating and maintaining a strong relationship is communication. If two people can be honest with each other their relationship will blossom.

I started shopping locally for my wedding gown and I was open to trying on all different styles as I had no idea what I wanted. After trying on a few different styles, I decided I wanted a fit and flare design. After shopping all over Sydney I found my perfect dress at Penrith Bridal Centre. It had a sweetheart neckline, keyhole back with a long train and lots of lace.

We wanted a garden style wedding at a venue where we could have our reception and ceremony at the one place. We looked at many venues from the Hunter Valley to all over Sydney. We both agreed the venue we found was perfect. It had a beautiful garden for our ceremony with a lovely marquee and croquet lawn for our reception. There were plenty of opportunities for photos amongst the manicured gardens, beautiful fountain and pond and surrounding acres.

The styling we left in the capable hands of Kylie from Flower Me Pretty. She created a gorgeous romantic feel to the marquee with flower, greenery and an abundance of candles.

The whole day was absolutely perfect. I loved every moment!

I would not change anything. The day was perfect!
