David popped the question to Cassandra with a Hollywood-worthy proposal

Think dinner at an Italian restaurant, getting down on one knee during dessert and the other diners breaking into applause. 
See? We told you it was like a movie. The planning process for Cassandra and David was a breeze, because the couple knew exactly what they wanted. "We both wanted a small, simple wedding in the country with our closest family and friends," explains Cassandra. "We had recently moved to the Southern Highlands and we both like to be surrounded by open space because we get an overwhelming sense of home... Our planning was easy, it all just fell into place. Every person we spoke to and booked was helpful and honest."

The most challenging part of their day was writing their own vows for the ceremony. "We shared our own versions of how we met, how David proposed and the things we love about each other," says the bride. In a nod to their Catholic faith, the couple asked Cassandra's aunt, a Mercy Sister nun, to read a scripture passage. "We also wanted to include both sets of parents and ask them to stand beside us and give us their blessing. We promised each other's parents our intentions to look after each other. It was a lovely way to include them." The couple celebrated with a reception in Bendooley Estate's Book Barn, a rustic space kitted out with wall-to-wall book shelves, double-sided fireplaces and exposed wooden beams.
