Laura & Chris

After hitting it off on their first date at Sydney’s Opera Bar, Chris Carter could think of no better place to propose to love of his life Laura O’Loughlin.

On their first anniversary, they went back to the place where they first met, this time with a diamond sparkler carefully concealed. (Groom) Chris had the engagement ring in his sock because he didn’t want Laura to feel the box in his pocket during dinner. After dinner, Chris suggested a walk along the promenade before popping the question and, of course, got the answer he was looking for…. “YES”.

The pair knew they wanted a wedding around Circular Quay and chose the Eucalypt Lawn at the Royal Botanic Gardens for their harbourside wedding. A red carpet was rolled out for the occasion and the couple wed on February 7, 2015 in front of 130 guests.
