Love is // Lara & Ben

12th Feb 2017

Valentine's Day... a universal celebration of love and romance. Aside from the roses, chocolates and champagne, it is a day to reflect on the utter gratitude and admiration we feel for those special people who brighten and strengthen our lives everyday through love and endless commitment.

We are celebrating Valentine's Day this year by recognising and celebrating couples who we have had the honour of assisting along their journey down the aisle.

// Meet Lara and Ben 

Ben came to us and insisted he wanted to make sure he surprised Lara with the ring. He really spent time on the quality spec of the diamond, ensuring it was the best for Lara. He ended up choosing the Round Brilliant Diamond Platinum Engagement Ring.

When, and how did you first meet?

We first officially met in 2006 through a mutual friends party on the northern beaches. Our friendship started from this date and then turned into a relationship not long after our first kiss at Lara's 18th Birthday party.

Love is....? Tell us what love means to you!

To us, love means finding someone that brings out the best version of yourself and challenges you to be better. Someone who is truly your partner and best friend that you can share all your experiences, good and bad with. We consider ourselves very lucky to have found this in each other from such a young age and are very grateful that we have had so much time in life to experience so many amazing things together.

What do you love most about your partner?!

Ben: The beautiful person Lara is both inside and out is what I love most about her. She is kind and caring and I’m very lucky to have her.

Lara: I love that Ben is the most kind hearted, caring and thoughtful person I have ever met. He is my best friend and I love sharing my life with him.

Wedding date and location?

We married on 21 October 2016 at Circa 1876, Hunter Valley. We decided on the Hunter Valley as its always been a special place for us that we have come to spend special occasions at over the past ten years, anniversary etc. Our family has a property in the Hunter Valley so its our home away from home.
