Mona and Matt got married on a beautiful Kingscliff Beach, Northern NSW and then celebrated at the awesome Kingscliff Beach Bowls Club.

Is there a special reason you chose this venue? We knew we wanted Kingscliff beautiful quiet beachy town and after such a welcoming at KBBC it was a no brainer. Such a relaxed atmosphere and Donna and her team where fantastic.

Tell us how you met: We met during our initial training for the Army……the rest is history!

How did the proposal happen: Our first two children are born on the same day two years apart. So whilst celebrating a third and first birthday and pregnant again with our third Matt decided to propose while we had so much of the family around making it a special moment enjoyed by all.

How did you chose your Bridal Party: Fortunately for me blood is thicker than water and there was no hard decisions for this, my three sisters where always the one and only pick. Matts best man had also always been picked, best mates for a good part of 15 years even with distance for the last 8 or so. And his only brother and best mate from the Army, which in our case are like family anyway.

Where will you be honeymooning: Well now I don’t have a wedding to organise and with Matt being deployed, I have some extra time (in between work and three kids ) to try and plan this! No definite destinations so far, but I am certain that beaches and cocktails will be involved.

What was the funniest moment on the day: My brother in law Andrew jumping over the ledge to save a beer whilst splitting his pants in the mean time. I didn’t witness this, but the story was even funnier during our after party drinks. And the speeches from the best man, dad and head bridesmaid where winners.

What was your favourite memory of the day: The whole thing is one big favourite memory! Though a few stood out.

My husbands speech was beautiful and now etched in my memory also surprising him with the first dance song.

After my speech dedicated to my parents at the ceremony, I looked over at dad crying- that was a touching moment for me…. and doing the ‘sisters dance’ Holiday by Madonna, always a party favourite for our family.

Who would you like to Thank: EVERYONE! From the suppliers to mine and Matts family and the guests! All made an effort in some way to make the day possible and they all need thanking for that.

Niki of course for capturing our special day and her laid back personality to make the situation feel like a calm one.

Donna and the team at KBBC. She is fantastic at her job and the day could not have gone any smoother.

Jill and Rodger from ‘Simply Cupcakes’ for our beautifully designed cupcake/cake tower.

Ange from Florilicious for my flowers (that are made from wood by the way) She did an excellent job in putting them together (and my sis Kelly) and now I get to keep them forever!

Jess and Jess from Solo Hair! We all did looked stunning if I do say so myself.

What would be your best advice for Brides-to-be: As a mother of three young children I have to say that planning the wedding was more enjoyment than stressful! Just be organised and make sure EVERYTHING is covered, and if it is then the day should be fun and enjoyable, also take in the ‘its all about you’ bit while it lasts because the day is over before you know it! Cool calm and collected was my of looking at it.

What would you like to tell future brides about your experience with Niki D Photography + Film:

If you are looking for a relaxing experience, then I would not be looking any further!! Niki was brilliant in every way and all you want in a photographer, especially for a wedding. She had excellent ideas and encouraged ours. Never got in the way and has a laid back attitude making you feel comfortable and relaxed about the experience. Will be recommending her to anyone looking to capture what ever special moments they want to keep in their life!
