Sophie + Cory Bennett

I feel so privileged to work with couples that truly rock, recently I caught up with Sophie now Bennett (wahoo!) and she told us more about her and Cory's story, where they started and some advice and insights following their big day.

Smitten With Love Sophie and Cory Bennett

How did you first meet?
Technically through Tinder, but we had a mutual friend who encouraged us to met up! Lucky we trusted her!

How did the proposal go down?
OMG he was so adorable and totally us. He used emojis to make it like a treasure hunt for me! He surprised me with a trip to Queenstown for what I thought was my birthday! He made me walk up a massive mountain (which I complained a lot about during the way up). Proposed at the top.. I ran all the way down I was so excited!! Then we had the best weekend! It was absolutely perfect!

What was your favourite detail of your wedding to plan (which bit was the most fun)?
Aside from our invites, which was pretty fun - I had admired Smitten with Love for our whole 2 year engagement! It was the small things that we did - we had Swips Ice Blocks for our guest as it was summer, and I surprised Cory with a donut wall at the last minute which was perfect!

What did you find to be the most difficult part of wedding planning?
The seating plan! We have big families so trying to get the tables correct and in the right places was a bit of a mission!

Your top tip for any bride or groom to be?
On your special day make sure you try not to leave each others sides. I remember someone telling me this and it was the best advice as we remember the day together!

If you had to choose one song for the ceremony dance floor what would it be?
Stevie Wonder - Signed, sealed, delivered (our walk in song!)

Sophie and Cory's wedding day was captured beautifully by Evermore Photography . Stationery - Olive Grove Suite with gold foil press and via felt card stock, paired with a forest green envelope and gold wax seal.
