Wedding Feature: Serena & Andrew
We were so honored to play at Serena & Andrew’s gorgeous (and outrageously fun) wedding reception, and we are excited to share their journey as a couple: how they met and how they managed to create an incredible final result filled with joy and love!
Tell us the story of how you two met.
We met at our local country football/netball club. Andrew was the big recruit from Melbourne and in his first season for the club he tore his hamstring. I was a student osteopath at the time volunteering at the club and he came and saw me for regular treatment. I got his hamstring right and we have been stuck together since.
What made you decide that this was the right person to be with for the rest of your life?
Serena – For me there wasn’t really a particular moment I realised he was the right person for me. From the beginning we had so much in common: our humour, our ability to have fun, travel and the love of good food, wine and coffee!
Andrew – Serena was training to be an osteopath and I thought it would come in handy for the future once I finished playing footy and wouldn’t be able to walk – she will fix me and get me moving, haha!
What do you enjoy most about each other’s company?
Andrew – We just love having a laugh with each other. Although I find Serena laughs more at me than with me.
Serena – I love our banter. I love that we can laugh at ourselves and at each other. We don’t take anything too seriously and love to have fun.
How was your experience with Baker Boys Band?
Baker Boys were fantastic. All our guests have raved so much about how awesome our band was. Everyone danced all night and had so much fun. The whole experience was excellent from the beginning. We went to one of their gigs which showcased many singer and musician combinations we could choose from. Within the first 30 seconds of their performance we looked at each other and decided they were perfect. We chose a five piece band and they really made our wedding completely perfect.
What was your favorite song you danced to at your wedding?
We don’t have a favourite song that we danced too. It was all so good! We danced all night to everything they played.
Share one special memory from your wedding with us.
Andrew – There are too many special moments: arriving in a helicopter with the groomsmen, the first time I saw Serena coming down the aisle, the moment we were officially married, and our first dance. But having everyone around us to celebrate our day made it all so special.
Serena – The whole day was magical; we both wish we could do it all over again. From walking down the aisle with my dad, saying ‘I do’ to each other, to our first dance as husband and wife. We really had the most special day and night celebrating with all our friends and family.
Do you have any advice for couples as they plan for their wedding?
Enjoy every moment of it! Have fun with the planning and don’t stress over things – everything always works out. The day is about the two of you, so do what you both want and not what everyone else wants you to do. And pick the Baker Boys as your band – it will be one of the best decisions you’ll make!
