Mark went to school with Dave. We both broke up with partners and found ourselves hanging out on Friday nights at Michelle and Dave’s. Chalkie left for a season in Canada and came home six months later excited to see I hadn’t landed a new man. He came our to see me the first night he got home and I teased him about his cut and walked away. A week later, after a haircut, he asked me out of a date.”marque-style-wedding-sunshine-coast-18 marque-style-wedding-sunshine-coast-17 marque-style-wedding-sunshine-coast-16 marque-style-wedding-sunshine-coast-15 marque-style-wedding-sunshine-coast-14“The proposal was something out of a fairy tale. Mark wanted to make the whole thing a surprise so on his limited time back in Brisbane while doing FIFO work he went shopping, bought a ring and hid it at his parents’ house until we left for our six week European holiday. He waited until we had hiked high above the Amalfi Coastline in Italy, along a trek known as the path of the gods. He said he would get the camera out for some photos and quickly got the ring our and dropped to one knee. He asked me in Italian, “Mi voui sposarmi?” I understood but took a moment to let it sink in. It was really pretty spectacular.”marque-style-wedding-sunshine-coast-29After some more beautiful photos, it was time to return for games and dancing.
