Cobie and Neil are a truly beautiful couple and what an amazing wedding day it was! It was full of much love, laughter, family and their favourite things! Both the ceremony and reception was held at the picturesque Milton Park – Country House & Spa, in Bowral, in the Southern Highlands.
Cobie and Neil met on the 15th May 2010 after exchanging smiles across the dance floor. Cobie thought that he was tall enough for her friend, but Neil only had eyes for Cobie and by the end of the evening Neil had provided her with his telephone number. The next morning Cobie did not hesitate to text Neil resulting in their very first date on that same day – little did they know that this was to be the start of the rest of their lives together! As time passed, and they spent more and more time together, eventually meeting each others respective families and their feelings for each other growing stronger and stronger with each passing day – they were in love!; sweet, giddy, love!
On 8 December 2012 – Cobie’s birthday, Neil had organised a special lunch at Berowra Waters. Cobie was led to believe that the lunch would be at Rose Bay, but when they got there, she found that Neil had arranged for a seaplane to take them to the real destination. After lunch, Neil took Cobie outside, dropped to one knee, produced the engagement ring and asked Cobie to spend the rest of her life with him as his wife. With the ring sparkling brightly in the afternoon sun, Cobie caught by surprise, initially laughed, but she did say yes and here we now were witnessing and celebrating their marriage.
It was the most perfect day for the most perfect couple, the sun shone brightly and the slight breeze keeping everyone comfortable – they could not have wished for better weather. Following a beautiful ceremony, officiated by Celebrant Craig Moran, there were cheers as Cobie & Neil were finally pronounced husband and wife. A group photograph and a few family shots prior to Cobie, Neil and their wedding party heading off for photographs around the idyllic Milton Park grounds. Guests made their way up to the upper lawn where an array of lounges and games were available whilst being served canapes and refreshments.
A little while later everybody made their way to the Baillieu Ballroom to celebrate Cobie and Neil’s love and the coming together of two amazing families. So much laughter, fun and happiness in one room was such a joy to behold. Lovely speeches, mingling, fun activities and dancing was the perfect recipe for a fantastic celebration. The bouquet toss, garter toss, a farewell circle, a final dance and it was time to bid farewell to our beautiful couple.
Cobie and Neil are so deeply in love that it literally radiates off them and touches all those around them…I was no exception and these two certainly touched my heart with the love they share for each other. Cobie & Neil, it was such an honour and privilege to not only witness you become husband & wife, but also to be your Southern Highlands Wedding MC and Wedding DJ Bowral and it is certainly something I will always cherish and hold dear. You have a special love and I know that with each passing day, you will both fall more and more in love with each other. May love, laughter and music fill your lives forever!!!.
