Last Saturday I ventured down to Kiama for Tanya and Rob’s delightful wedding at the Sebel Kiama. After the intimate garden ceremony, we went to the rock pools then to Jamberoo for a real “surf and turf” shoot.
Tanya & Rob met by accident at Rob’s birthday drinks in 2008 when Katie, a mutual friend invited Tanya along. It turned out that both Tanya and Rob were going to the New Year’s cricket test. Covertly, at the cricket, under the premise of fixing Tanya’s phone (by the way Tanya still refuses to join Telstra!), Rob happened to steal Tanya’s phone number. A few weeks later, Rob and Tanya enjoyed an all-day Date at Scarborough Pub. Their love for each other was evident right from the start. In 2010, Rob and Tanya went to South Africa to meet Tanya’s family and Rob was a favourite with the grandparents. With this endorsement, in April 2011 Rob proposed to Tanya at a surprise dinner at the Altitude Restaurant at the Shangri-La Hotel in Sydney. Rob looked around to see if anyone was watching, quickly got down on one knee and popped the question. Rob had to ask Tanya again if it was a YES, because all Tanya was interested in was the ring.(By the way, when Rob asked Tanya’s dad for her hand in marriage, he said: “Are you sure???” ) . Rob and Tanya have been looking forward to sharing the wedding celebrations with their family and friends ever since. The happy couple will depart for the Cook Islands for their Honeymoon after the wedding. So it turned out Rob got the best present for his birthday in 2008.
