Cocktails and shoes...
The first time we met, Ali came out of an elevator at The Ivy Bar in Sydney and hobbled towards me with one broken shoe, laughing. I fixed her shoe, bought her a glass of bubbles and the rest is history!
Actually, it was quite some time before we got together. I returned to Auckland after that long weekend and we ‘facebooked’ for the next 6 months or so. We planned for Ali to visit me in New Zealand for her birthday in February 2013, but in the week leading up to her visit a motorcross accident got in the way and I was bedridden for 8 weeks.
I returned to Sydney for a visit in May 2013 and after working our way through the cocktail list at the Hazy Rose in Darlinghurst, we plucked up the courage to share our feelings for each other. I still carry the bar tab card from that evening in my wallet - the Ten of Hearts.
I popped the question in Vegas in February 2016. A careful master plan was in place, however yet another shoe crisis got in the way. Ali refusing to walk two blocks down the strip to the Bellagio Fountain as she had blisters from her new shoes. So we agreed on cocktails at Alibi Ultra Lounge downstairs at the Aria hotel - and she said ‘yes’.
After a long distance relationship of what seems like forever, I packed up my life and moved to Angels Beach in February 2017 to be with Ali and Bee - and to become their domestic slave!!!
We are so looking forward to having you with us to share our special day.
