Albany and Zach first met at the hospital where they were both working. As a barista in the coffee shop, Albany wondered if it was her coffee or her smile that kept Zach dropping by each morning. She didn’t have long to wonder, as after they were formally introduced by a matchmaking manager, Albany and Zach ventured out on their first date. Zach brought along biscuits which he had baked, which absolutely melted Albany’s heart. She excited told her mum that Zach might just be the “one”!
After many more hours spent together, Zach proposed at an evening out to watch the Nutcracker, and Albany ecstatically accepted. She walked down the aisle to music from Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker.

With most of her family overseas, Albany decided on a simple wedding ceremony for her wedding to Zach. They live-streamed the ceremony to family and friends back home.
The wedding ceremony was held on a fine Summer afternoon at Kangaroo Point Cliffs Park, beside the sparkling Brisbane River. Celebrant Cheryl Landsberry organised all the legal paperwork for the marriage, and, together with the couple, created a ceremony with a little sentiment and a little laughter. The moments were captured by photographer, Romana Saeheng, who then took the couple to some secluded little spots alongside the river for couple portraits.
Following the ceremony and photos, the couple joined their guests at the Riverlife pergola for drinks, dancing, and donuts, as the sun set over the cityscape.
