Paula and Timothy met while in Germany on a working holiday. One Boxing Day, just two hours before they were to embark on a US holiday, Timothy asked Paula to open her gifts. One of them was a ring. The partners of seven years chose to celebrate their union with a weekend away in perfect, sunny Noosa.
"I love Sundays," Paula smiles. "We decided to make a weekend of it, so we celebrated our engagement party on the Friday, had lunch on the Saturday and the wedding on Sunday."
Karen Willis Holmes' Paddington (Brisbane) store, after seeing her designs in a number of bridal magazines. "Karen's style is very old world and feminine, I loved her designs from the moment I saw them," says Paula. She tried on about five gowns before finding the one that set her heart aflutter. "I adored the sequinned bodice," she smiles. "And we made changes to the skirt, which just finished the whole dress beautifully." Paula topped off her looked with a fascinator from Paddington Brides and a gorgeous pair of peeptoe shoes from Wittner. She and her bridesmaids carried elegant bouquets of white peonies.Paula chose her dress from couturier
