Kristy & Matthew's Real Wedding

Kristy and Matt first met when she moved in with Monique, who was dating Matt’s best friend Ryan. The pair became good friends, then best friends, before the relationship developed even further and blossomed into love. Within three years of meeting, they were married!

Matthew & Kristy-The Newlyweds

In July 2012, Matt and Kristy headed to the Geelong Bridal Expo as they’d been talking about getting engaged and wanted to have a look around. They bumped into a couple of friends and had a laugh about being at a bridal expo but not actively planning a wedding…

Until they received a call at 4pm, telling them they’d won the door prize which consisted of over $10,000 worth of vouchers for wedding companies in Geelong! Part of the prize included hotel vouchers, one being for one night’s accommodation at the Mercure in Geelong in the 'Diplomat Suite', a bottle of champagne and $100 towards dinner in their restaurant.

They went there for a romantic night away, and as they went for dinner Kristy could see a ring box in his pocket! He waited until after dinner to present her with her dream engagement ring.
