Good things come to those who wait.
At least that’s what Mhairi Davie kept telling herself while patiently waiting for her boyfriend Kim King to propose.
“We decided to go on a big holiday over to Europe where most of my family is from and I suspected he may ask me but with less than a week of our holiday left I had decided I was wrong,” explains Mhairi.
“But on our last night in Paris we went up to the top of the Arc De Triomphe to get a view of the city. I was looking over towards the Eiffel Tower and when I turned around Kim was down on bended knee asking me to marry him.”
The pair, both 28, were married with a fusion wedding on July 19, 2014. In Cairns, their Scottish and Filipino heritage came together for a cultural celebration with 90 guests. “The mix of traditions made the day and night a wonderful mish-mash of cultures and fun,” says Mhairi.
And it wasn’t just throughout the formalities guests had fun. A Minjin Jungle Swing (Google it – it looks amazing!) was incorporated into the day. “Who says only the bride and groom have to make the plunge on their wedding day?” laughs Mhairi.
Mhairi was a savvy bride, sourcing her bridesmaid gowns from ASOS.
“On the day surround yourself with people who you love and try to take it all in,” is Mhairi’s advice for brides-to-be.
