Stef and Tim did their first dance to a '90s R&B anthem

"Cha Cha Slide" by Mr C The Slide Man! 
"We choreographed it in our living room in the weeks leading up the wedding," explains Stef. "It was lots of fun and not at all traditional!" Even though their first dance wasn't an expected choice, Stef says she and Tim both love tradition so made sure to include some traditional elements in their celebration. They swapped vows in a civil ceremony on the lawns overlooking the 18th hole at Sorrento Golf Club. "We were lucky the sun was shining and the forecasted rain stayed away so we could have our ceremony outside," the bride says. "The ceremony was the part Tim and I enjoyed the most. Walking down the aisle with my dad and seeing Tim's face was a moment I'll never forget."

A fun-filled reception in the golf club's function room followed the vows. "Once the formalities concluded, our DJ got the dance floor going. I'll always remember looking around during the night, seeing our nearest and dearest tearing it up and having a great time," says Stef. "It was an awesome feeling for both of us - we just wanted everyone to enjoy it!"

Another memorable moment for the couple happened well before the ceremony and the reception - the proposal. Tim popped the question in a seriously unique way, and it all started when Stef's friends gave her a skydiving voucher for her 27th birthday. "I finally booked just after Christmas in late 2014. Tim came with me, but he was too nervous to join in," Stef says. "He sent me up in the plane with a note and told me to read it just before I jumped out of the plane. It was a poem asking me to marry him. Needless to say, the skydiving nerves completely left my body, I was absolutely over the moon and couldn't wait to land and tell Tim, 'Of course I'll marry you!'" Cute!
