Seven years ago, a young man from England joined my workplace and we got chatting. We found out we lived on the same street and then funnily enough in the exact same apartment complex. We exchanged numbers thinking it was the right thing to do as neighbours but I personally didn’t think we would see much of each other outside of work.
A few days later I get a call from him saying he had somehow locked himself out of place (while having a smoke on his balcony) and got stuck outside*. I organised a locksmith and as it was going to be a few hours we got chatting again. In those hours we left our work personas aside and after a few cheeky beers we were talking like two old mates in the pub. After that I decided to make more of an effort to get to know him better and show him around Perth.
We became good friends and a few months after he introduced me to his long lost university buddy (also living in Perth as a coincidence) and I guess my life changed from there as his friend eventually became my husband and he became the godfather to my first born child.
So it was extra special for both DH and I to witness our mutual and good friend getting married a few weeks ago. We solidly approve of his bride (who I’ve become really close to as well) and his choice of wedding location in the beautiful Bunker Bay.
This wedding at Bunker Bay was an intimate and heartfelt affair with its fair share of tear jerking speeches and laugh out loud moments. The bride made all the flowers, her headpiece and some of the decorative lanterns (she is annoyingly very crafty).
The girls had fun but they had an early night with a babysitter. Lily wore a gorgeous Tutu Du Monde dress with a Madison Grace headband and Nyla wore a Little Coogie dress from L’Amour Kids and Giftware with a Tutu Du Monde headband. I wore an Ae’lkemi yellow lace gown which I’m dying to wear again.
Congratulations to my friends on their special day. And I’m so glad that my friend did lock himself out of his room that day as I would never had met DH and consequently my beautiful girls. My happiness is very much owed to him and this fateful day.

* To this day, we still have no idea how he locked himself from his balcony but I guess fate can be funny sometimes. He also promptly quit smoking the next day and never went back!
