Real Wedding | Samira + Thomas

Tell us a little about yourselves!

Thomas and I are a true modern-day romance, after swiping right on Bumble!

Thomas had recently relocated from Perth to Sydney and I am Sydney born and raised. Thomas is originally from New Zealand and I come from an Indian-Irish background.

After about two years of dating, Thomas popped the question while on holiday in Uluwatu in Bali, which took me completely by surprise (I am a notorious control freak + known for finding out all surprises before they happen!)

Thomas was in cahoots with my mum when it came to the ring design, working with The Gem Palace (a jeweller based in Jaipur, India) to create the most beautiful ring, based off an antique ring I had seen in India earlier in the year.

Why did you decide to get married where you did?

I pride myself on being very decisive! Wallalong House was the first and only venue we visited. After we got engaged (and still in Bali) my mum was on the case, sending me venue options constantly. I decided to take matters in my own hands after countless texts back and forth and I found Wallalong House.
