After living in Canada for some time, three years ago Ray Sich got down on one knee proposing to Emma Gurney at the magical Yellowstone National Park, marking an important day on the Sich calender.
Emma and Ray from Nuriootpa were married on October 8, 2022 at Lambert Estate Wines, Angaston, surrounded by 50 guests, celebrating their new chapter.
On the special day, Emma wore an ivory/blush coloured A-line dress from Forever You Bridal at Mawson Lakes, with flowers decorating the wonderful gown.
The groom, Ray, wore a grey blazer with a white shirt, black pants, tie and boots, all from Tarocash.
There was no overall theme for the day, but Emma and Ray went for “natural and earthy colours” and wanted to create an intimate but relaxed feel for the day.
Throughout the wedding, there were standing canapes so “everyone could mingle and have a good time, which I think we achieved well,” said Emma.
The now married couple have been together for almost 10 years, with Emma reflecting on their wedding day, saying, “we loved every single moment but the dance floor was definitely a highlight.”
“We felt so comfortable with our photographers, they were amazing and felt like a part of the wedding party… They blended in so well with our family and friends.
“The venue made things so easy and stress free, they were extremely accomodating and helpful with all requests… We couldn’t recommend them enough.”
Emma and Ray included three cars in their wedding, Holden Monaros to be exact, with one of them being a big part of Ray’s life.
“It was one of the cars Ray had grown up with and has seen it built from the ground up,”
“We were very grateful to have three beautiful Monaros which were a massive feature in our photos.”
With the day now over, and fond memories and photos to remember that moment in time, Emma and Ray are living it up in Tasmania for four weeks, spending quality time celebrating their newly-wed status.
