KAYLA + JOSEPH: 2 YEARS
When Joseph left London to embark on the trip of a lifetime, he had little idea he would meet the love of his life halfway across the globe. That was until he met Kayla at a nightclub during an impromptu stop over in Adelaide, “At first sight her black hair, tan and funky style caught my eye, but it was her blue eyes that stood out to me the most. Kayla certainly had my attention!” Joseph recalls. It was, however, a certain Hollywood star that sparked the conversation between them. “I remember thinking that Joseph looked like Johnny Depp as Jack Sparrow from ‘Pirates Of The Caribbean’ and the first thing he said to me was ‘Where’s all the rum gone?’, a line from that exact movie! I was wearing a bandana and had long dark hair and he said that I reminded him of Jack Sparrow!’” explains Kayla.
The pair later discovered that they were both standing in the queue for a couple of hours and almost did not even go inside the club…“It was fate for sure!” Joseph and Kayla spent the next two weeks together, until it was time for Joseph to return home. Smitten Kayla could not resist a trip to England to visit her newfound beau. “My favourite memory of Kayla would have to be the day she came to visit me in London for the first time. Just seeing her there in the airport with her pink little suitcase looking bewildered after a whole day of travel was one of the cutest things I had ever seen in my life” reminisces Joseph. Kayla also looks back fondly on that time, “After three visits to London to see Joseph, all in the space of five months, he made the move and left his family, friends and home to come here and be with me”. Fourteen months later, after a whirlwind romance in South Australia, Kayla arrived home from the hairdressers one evening to a home cooked meal surrounded by candles. After dinner, Joseph bent down on one knee with a beautiful ring and asked his love to marry him.
Stunning natural scenery was the backdrop for the pair’s gorgeous ‘Old Hollywood Glamour’ wedding in front of seventy guests. The dramatic décor epitomised the couple’s vibrant personalities! Guests were wowed with a black and white colour palette with touches of striking pink, water wave curls, red lips and luxe centrepieces created with huge white ostrich feathers and black and white damask table runners as a jazz and swing singer set the mood.
Kayla and Joseph agree that their favourite part of marriage is having someone to love and share life with. “I love knowing that Joe will be there to support me, to laugh at my jokes even if they’re not funny and to listen to me or at least pretend he is listening to me” laughs Kayla, “it is just the best feeling knowing that I married my soul mate and even though he was from the other side of the world we still found each other.” It seems the pair has also perfected the secret to a happy marriage, as Joseph explains, “Always respect your partner and never make them feel alone. Show them that they are the most important thing you have.” Kayla agrees, and adds that it is also important to maintain your own identity, “laugh lots and lots and feel happy, healthy and confident within yourself, as it reminds your partner of the person they fell in love with.”
The couple have since been blessed with a gorgeous baby girl, Pearl Rosina, who joined the couple on their recent wedding anniversary at Victor Harbour. When asked about the future, Kayla and Joseph have similar views of their life in ten years time; happily married, healthy and chasing around a couple of beautiful children. “I think Barry White hit the nail on the head”, says Joseph “when he sang ‘you’re my first, my last, my everything.”…

It’s the bloom that is sure to be noticed with its woolly sphere head – Echinops, commonly known as globe thistles add the perfect amount of texture and interest to any arrangement. In shades of blue, purple and white, they look beautiful paired simply with wild flowers and lots of foliage and equally hold their own next to more blousy blooms offering interest and an element of geometry…
