April & Nick | Lyrebird Falls Wedding

// April & Nick //
* 02.03.2018 *

Nick & April tied the knot at an intimate ceremony at the beginning of Autumn. With the gazebo decorated in beautiful Autumn colours and the sun shining through the trees, April walked down the aisle to the man of her dreams; surrounded by friends and family, their ceremony was filled with love and laughter throughout. While these high school sweethearts lived out their happily ever after, they have a very good piece of advice for future couples on their wedding day, “Enjoy every moment!” Congratulations Mr & Mrs Lyell!

The proposal:

“We went to the Dandenong Ranges for the day and had lunch at a French Café in Sassafras. Then we went to see Olinda Falls and as I was taking pictures from the viewing platform, I turned around to see Nick on one knee holding my ring!”

Special moments of the day:

“I loved all of it but I would have to say hearing Nick’s beautiful vows and seeing him for the first time as I walked down the aisle.”

Advice to other couples:

“Enjoy every moment! We honestly had the most perfect day of our lives – in the end remember it’s all about you two! Definitely do your research and invest in a good photographer as we have been SO thrilled with how our photos have turned out even though we ended up spending more than we intended to. Make sure you ask lots of questions as the function coordinators are amazing at Lyrebird and will be happy to help with anything! They also are able to provide lots of little things (e.g. wishing well, table numbers, clear umbrellas if needed) so check with them before buying your own. Lastly, allow yourself plenty of time on the day to get ready as things do take longer than you expect so that way you won’t have that extra stress before you’re even at the venue.”
