What started off as a friendship for Ainsley Carr and Lachy Szponar turned into a beautiful love story for the Geelong West couple.
“Our parents have been best mates since we were young so we’ve just always known each other,” she says.
“It wasn’t until we were older and we started hanging out more that Lachy’s mum said to me one day ‘I think he’s in love with you’.”
The pair were wed on Ainsley’s aunt and uncle’s property at Murcheboluc surrounded by family, friends and the couple’s little daughter Frankie.
