Sarah proposed by way of a flash mob, with ‘security’ bursting into song and dance at Manchester Airport as Karen disembarked a flight from the Dominican Republic. The wedding itself took place in the UK on 24 October 2017 where marriage equality had already been legalised.
"We had an extremely intimate ceremony and celebration, with only immediate family and friends present to witness our long-awaited union at the registry office. We wanted our day to be about us, as individuals and as a couple, and it was important that the event reflected our personal brand of love."
Sarah wore a tailored suit, which had been designed and custom made for the big day and the two matched the colouring of their shoes – both made from a deep purple suede. Their honeymoon was in Cape Verde where they enjoyed nothing but sun, beach and each other for two whole weeks.
"We fought for, and are extremely excited about, the legislation changes in Australia where their marriage is now recognised under the law. A tear was shed when the news was announced and we celebrated by cracking the champers!”
