TAEGAN + GRANT
Taegan Pearson and Grant James met when they were staying on adjoining campsites at the Apollo Bay Music Festival.
“It was by chance that we both stopped at the Forrest shop at the same time on the way home, so we exchanged details and arranged to catch up again,” Taegan remembers. Grant proposed on a drizzly day walking along the beach in Lorne.
A rainbow appeared just as Grant went down on one knee.
The pair were married in a national park; the environmentally minded couple asked friends and family to shower them in gum leaves as confetti after they became husband and wife.
