WHERE THE wind blows Kylie and Joe incorporated their love of lavender into their wedding at Cley Windmill Images courtesy of Tim Doyle Photography Kylie and Joe met 14 years ago thanks to a mutual friend. “Our bond was ignited by our shared sense of humour, which quickly brought us closer together,” says Kylie. “Our connection grew, leading us to embark on numerous dates and lots of fun activities, which included a lot of sight-seeing.” After thinking marriage might not be on the cards for them, Kylie was shocked when Joe popped the question. “He whisked me away to London for a day, treating me to the joyous spectacle of Mamma Mia The Party and a vibrant party at the London O2 arena,” shares the bride. “The performance was utterly enchanting, filled with laughter, dancing, and delectable cuisine. Amid the dancing, Joe arranged for someone to capture a snapshot of us. To my astonishment, he got down on one knee, asking me to marry him. My eyes couldn’t believe what they were witnessing. Strangely, instead of saying ‘yes’, I instinctively responded with a thumbs-up, a moment we now fondly laugh and joke about.” Read on to see some of Kylie’s favourite moments from their big day...
