There was an immediate connection when Cat Martin and Zane Vail locked eyes across the room at a mutual friend’s birthday party.
“Even in that short moment, we caught each other’s eyes and felt compelled to double-back and talk to one another,” Cat says.
It was only a short time until they bumped into each other again, and they haven’t been apart since.
During the hunt for her gorgeous gown, Cat found that nothing was catching her eye – until she spotted the cap-sleeved lace dress in the Collette Dinnigan Bridal department in David Jones.
“I knew straight away it was the one,” she smiles.
Her three bridesmaids looked stunning in different hues, and the groomsmen wore pastel-coloured shirts and funky bow ties.
There were 84 guests at the Geelong Botanic Gardens ceremony, with a cocktail reception following at Jack Rabbit Vineyard.
The helicopter that whisked the pair from their ceremony to reception was the ultimate scene-setter. Organised by friends as their wedding present, it made a brief stop in a Portarlington field for photos before surprising cheering guests at the reception.
