Had you ever heard of a first look prior to Samantha Ohlsen suggesting it?
Why did you choose to do a first look?
I liked the idea of being able to meet up beforehand in private rather than seeing each other for the first time at the ceremony
Did you have any reservations prior in doing a first look compared to the traditional groom sees bride first at the alter?
At first the idea was foreign to me, so I did have to contemplate it for a while, but at no time did I think, this is a bad idea, I just had to open my mind to the idea of it. It didn’t take me long to think that it was in fact quite an inspired idea…we could see each other for the first time without the stress of a whole bunch of other eyes on us. Brilliant!
What was it like as you arrived and you could see the back of Damien but not his face?
I felt happy and excited.
What was it like as you walked towards him?
I thought it was fun to be able to creep up on him and know that this was going to be a surprise for him.
