The Central Coast of NSW can feel like a pretty small place when you’re growing up. It feels like you’ve met everybody at least once or twice, but sometimes fate saves meeting someone as special as the person that you’re destined to spend the rest of your life with until it’s just the right moment in time. Like two fruits ready to fall from the tree! That’s how Bec and Pete met. Though they may both give you their different recounts of the story of the night they met, the story that really matters is the one that has led them this point in time – to their wedding day! Pete was in the midst of a stint living and working overseas and met Bec whilst he was home on a visit. Bec was waiting for just the right motivation to move to London and when she met Pete she knew had a serious reason to book her ticket. He was kind, fun, full of spirit and stories and he made her laugh (which was definitely Bec’s weak spot). Pete saw familiarities in Bec that matched his own – a sense of adventure, a social butterfly and a spice for life. Together they spent the next few years exploring and living in different parts of the world, making friends and memories as they went and growing closer as they adapted to each new environment and circumstance. Pete and Bec believe communication is the key to a long lasting relationship, as well as having the ability to understand what makes one another happy and allowing each other the freedom to do just that. Their wedding is an expression of themselves, a homestead wedding to represent a love that is home grown but also with a world of influences. The DIY efforts reflect their ability to work hard at something they both feel passionate about, and the thousand and one mutual decisions that have to be made to get the elements just right! But Pete and Bec also know that the day would not have been made possible without their friends and family rallying behind them to help with the set up, to fill the walls of the reception with love and laughter and to really make the day bloom!
Love is a song you can sing forever….
