"I had an inkling that Terry might propose in Antigua at the end of a mighty transatlantic row he took part in. Unfortunately fate and the weather were not kind to the team and a week into their effort they were rescued after their boat nearly sank,” explains Sarah. “After this I assumed we'd just carry on as we were so didn't expect anything. We then moved into our first flat together, and before going out for dinner one evening – I was in a bit of a rush and hadn't noticed Terry on the sofa with a strained look – he proposed. Predictably, I burst into tears, but did manage to say 'Yes'. Later in the evening, I realised it was Terry's parents anniversary and I thought it was really sweet of him to choose this date – when I mentioned it to him he'd forgotten completely!”
Here, Sarah tells us more about their day…
We gave guests a Terry's Chocolate Orange each as a favour – my sister-in-law gave Terry this nickname when we started dating.
Our place names were gorgeous gold-painted flowers.
My dress was by Essense of Australia; as soon as I put it on I couldn’t stop beaming. It came with a gorgeous sash and I accessorised it with gold shoes from Freya Rose, the Starling headdress from Dee Dee Bridal.
The flowers in my bouquet were beautiful coral vuvuzela roses, ranunculus, stocks, anemones and eucalyptus foliage.
”I wasn't nervous about the ceremony, I knew I wanted to marry Sarah and I was looking forward to it. It was doing the speech. I couldn't stop thinking about!” – Terry
