Sally Mayberry and Sean Wride met while at university and have been inseparable ever since. “I love way she walks, talks and just is,” says Sean. “Sean tells me he loves me and that I am beautiful every day, and I mean every day for the last 11 years – that’s something very special,” Sally adds. Sean proposed on Lake Ashi in Japan, with Mount Fuji as the backdrop. “Sean had planned this moment for the better part of six months to make sure everything was perfect,” Sally says. “It was unbelievable and I hold Japan close to my heart.” The pair opted to take their closest family and friends on a magical trip to lush forest in the Dandenong Ranges for their nuptials. “It felt special to be able to take our guests to somewhere so beautiful and then spend the entire weekend with everyone,” Sally remembers with happiness. “The day was just perfect.”
