Monique and Ben meet at a mine site in the Pilbara region of Western Australia. After a few months of getting to know each other, Monique asked Ben to meet her for a drink, and the rest is history. With the blessing of Monique’s parents, Ben popped the question at the couple’s home in Karratha.

The pair wed on Valentine’s Day at the Old Swan brewery in front of 80 guests. Monique look elegant is a strapless A-line ivory gown from Pearls bridal, with delicate beading and a lace –up back. The bridal gown beautifully echoed the classic silver and white décor of the reception, also held at the Old Swan Brewery, with just a hint of colour provided by the gorgeous floral arrangements. DA Doo Ron Ron entertainment kept the guests enthused throughout the night with a DJ and photo booth fun.

The location of the Old Swan Brewery allowed for some fun and interesting photo opportunities with a full moon rising over the river made the photos a little more special. For the honeymoon, Monique and Ben spent ten days relaxing in Mauritius, enjoying sight-seeing, great food and stunning beaches. The happy couples tip for your wedding is “keep it simple and do it well. This will allow you time to enjoy your day”
