Gemma and Tim tied the knot on their eight year wedding anniversary. Tim tells us “the proposal wasn’t super romantic, I just wanted to catch Gem off guard and give her an element of surprise. After 7 years, she knows me too well and I am a terrible liar. Anything out of the ordinary would have sounded the alarm, so I planned to do it while we were away over new years. Earlier in the year I met with Jenny to design the ring, and then it was hidden away for months, I just couldn’t wait any longer. So on Christmas morning, I found myself lying there wide-awake and too excited to sleep and I thought its time’. It was 530am and I went and got the ring, with a little shake and a kiss on the forehead, I woke Gem and asked her to marry me. The look on her face was priceless, there was the initial shock of being woken up before 6am and then seeing a ring, once she had a chance to process what was happening  she said yes!”

Tim goes on to say “The lead up to the wedding was pretty smooth sailing. Having a small wedding definitely reduced the stress and took a lot of the pressure off. We are both pretty similar in the fact that we never envisioned a huge wedding. It was really nice to work together and make the day so us’.”

Tim and Gemma, who wore a sweet gown by Zella from Bridal Avenue, gathered their nearest and dearest for an intimate ceremony and family style dinner at Table for 20 afterwards. Beautifully photographed by the talented lensman Scott Surplice, we love their relaxed and candid portraits as they explore both Sydney’s beautiful bushland and urban surrounds.
