>Their eyes met across a crowded room and they knew there was the potential for something special... but it wasn't a fancy cocktail party with tuxedos and martinis or another wedding with champagne and candlelight; Roslyn and Adam met at an RSVP function, where they were given name-tags designating them as cute cartoon couples. Roslyn, as Olive Oyl and Adam, as Popeye, immediately took a liking to one another and just a month later, they knew they wanted to spend their lives together.
"We had spent the day in the city enjoying ourselves for Australia Day, taking in The Rocks and when we got home, he dropped to one knee and asked me to marry him," said Roslyn.
The ceremony was held at Sydney's beautiful The Chinese Garden of Friendship in Darling Harbour. "It was really special for us because my celebrant on the day was the same girlfriend I originally went to the function with," Roslyn muses, "She made the ceremony so personal and very special."
Roslyn's gown was inspired by images and ideas from magazines, designed and handmade for her by Beverly Mann. Roslyn and Adam chose a wedding theme of champagne, creme and deep royal blue, with everything from flowers, to bridesmaid's dresses, flowers and table decorations, even the groomsmen's pocket squares coordinated. The reception was held at The Star Room in Darling Harbour.
Roslyn & Adam honeymooned in Malaysia and have made a home together in Sydney's trendy Brighton Le Sands. They're looking forward to more travel in the near future.
