Sarah and Sam had known one another for a long time due to similar lifestyles and activities. However, it wasn’t until Sarah’s family joined the Tasmanian Lighthorse a few years ago (of which Sam was a member), that the pair really had the opportunity to get to know one another. “Sam used to pick up my lease horse and take it to our training days,” said Sarah. “We had plenty of time to chat and get to know one another better. Until then we were simply acquaintances, but it only took one float drive for us to realise how much we had in common! We’ve both struggled with finding people who understood us, and we found complete understanding within one another. We are one another’s best friends,” she said
Highlights and hitches
The biggest highlight of the day for Sarah was marrying her best friend! Second to that was the way in which their families helped Sarah and Sam out. “We had a small budget,” said Sarah. “But we had so much love and help. From the many evenings around the table with the whole family helping to create orders of service, to my sister-in-law who made the bridesmaids’ dresses – the entire wedding day was a reflection of our families’ love and care,” she said.
