Russell & Kayla got married on a beautiful day at Scarborough.Followed by a cocktail style reception at Redcliffe Golf Club. It was a pleasure to capture some epic locations on the peninsula.
WE FIRST MET
Russ and I met in 2005 when we were both 13.
Our sisters were friends.
One night our sisters went to the Redcliffe Show together while I was at home with my mum, Russell’s mum called and asked if I wanted to go to the Show with Russell.
I asked my mum “who is Russell?” as I had no idea that Jamey (Russell’s sister) had a little brother. My mum, Russell’s mum, Russell and myself went to the show together.
Russell and I went off together and he met up with his school friends and he decided to ignore me the rest of the nigh so my first impression of him wasn’t a good one.
After that night we didn’t talk… he then tried to find my msn, MySpace etc. accounts and was asking people from my school (we went to different schools) if they knew me and if they could get my number for him. Once he had finished stalking me…. we spoke more and more over the internet and one night about a month later he sent me a text message, we were talking for a while before he eventually said “so, will you go out with me” I of course said yes, and we’ve been together ever since.
It was our 7-year anniversary and we had planned to go to the Gold Coast for the weekend to celebrate.
A few weeks before, Russ had been MIA after work and he was always saying he was going to the gym, going to his mums etc. I didn’t think anything of it at the time.
On the night of our 7 year anniversary we went out to dinner and walked along the night markets at surfers paradise. When we got back to the hotel Russell decided to freak me out by saying I haven’t been where I’ve told you I’ve been the past couple of weeks” I began thinking all kinds of bad things and asked him what he meant.. He just stared at me with this blank look on his face…. I began to get teary and frustrated and asked again “what do you mean” …… still looking at me with a dopey stare he slowly got down on one knee and said “Kayla Elizabeth, will you marry me” balling my eyes out I nodded and nodded and nodded, not being able to speak. ((he had been going back and fourth the past couple of weeks to the jewellers finding the perfect ring ))
