Naomi Malcolm describes now-husband Jason Dawkins as a gift from God.
The school chaplain, 26, had a year of “pre-dating” Jason, 25, and a year of official dating before he popped the question.
“He proposed in my childhood room with lights and roses saying ‘I could have done this anywhere, but this is where you prayed for me, waited for me and grew into who you are, so I couldn’t think of anywhere better’,” Naomi recalls.
The Alstonville, NSW pair spent 13 months planning their modern vineyard wedding, which was held across the border at Queensland’s idyllic Summergrove Estate.
Naomi walked down the aisle in the outdoor ceremony on May 18, 2016 in front of 69 friends and family.
Afterwards, canapes were served in the gardens before guests were ushered inside the venue, styled by Naomi’s interior designer brother.
“Patience and waiting allowed us to really be able to make our wedding really special,” Naomi says.
“There was lots of tears and joy when we were able to celebrate real love – unconditional, transparent, sacrificial, patient and kind love.”

Shaye Funnell married her soulmate, Andrew Fonseca, on September 25, 2016.
The couple, aged 25 and 29 respectively, opted for a classic wedding at Green Place Reserve in Perth’s Mosman Park. “Andrew and I met nine years ago and from the moment we met we knew we would be together,” smiles Shaye. “We truly feel that we are soulmates and we’re destined to be together.”
The bride, an occupational therapist, was surprised by her then boyfriend, a teacher, with a trip to the Whitsundays for his proposal. “After flying over the reef and snorkelling the Great Barrier Reef, he proposed at sunset on the jetty. It was beautiful and heartfelt,” explains Shaye.
The couple did their best to personalise their wedding day with touches including a butterfly release and DIY elements. “Table numbers were all the countries we had been to and each centrepiece was a photo in that place,” says the bride.
Shaye’s advice for brides-to-be is to relax about the details. “There is nothing more important and beautiful than the love and happiness of your husband and family surrounding you.”
