"SIMPLE, cruisey and elegant" was how Beth Cameron and Linton Hall envisioned their wedding.
And both agree their wedding on March 24 this year was "the best day of our lives and a perfect start to our future as husband and wife".
Beth and Linton were in the same year level at Warrnambool College, but it wasn't until six years after they had finished school that they caught each other's eyes.
"A great friendship flourished into an even better partnership," Beth said.
Linton stunned Beth when he proposed on board a canoe on Mount Emu Creek.
"It isn't unusual for Linton to take me on canoeing adventures. So one warm Sunday afternoon we went for a paddle at Mount Emu Creek. I was laying back enjoying Linton doing all the paddling and turned to find Linton struggling to balance on one knee asking for my hand," Beth said.
The couple was married at the Warrnambool Botanic Gardens and their reception was held at the ballroom of the Sebel Deep Blue with a black and white "sheer class and elegance" theme.
Beth wore a white stain strapless gown that had a fitted bodice with a pearl and diamante heart-shaped pattern set on a large bow.
Taking a "less is more" approach to her accessories, Beth wore pearl drop earrings, a diamante bracelet and her late grandmother's gold and pearl brooch.
She carried a bouquet which included her favourite flowers, gerberas, plus champagne and white roses.
Linton arrived in a white 1959 Pontiac formerly owned by his late grandfather. It had also been the wedding car for Linton's parents.
He wore a black fitted suit, a white shirt and a black tie with a white satin pocket handkerchief to match Beth's gown. The bridesmaids wore champagne knee-length dresses.
