Lily Montana + Scrap Wall
Married in Sydney, 2014
Scrap told me he was going to marry me about three weeks into our relationship – we went up to my beach house in Te Ngaere Bay. It was a really amazing trip, we just sat in front of the fire and read books, drank wine and cooked – I think we both felt like we’d found the family we wanted to have with each other.
We’re nuts about each other. Our loves include music, joking around with our friends and biting off more than we can chew. We met at Rainbow’s End at a friend’s 30th birthday party, got engaged in Tokyo and currently live in Amsterdam.
Scott proposed on our seventh anniversary. He asked if I’d take our dog for a walk with him, we went on our usual walk along the water, Scott had hidden some champagne in the bushes and we had a glass to celebrate our anniversary. Then he told me he’d bought a new collar for our dog, so I bent down to look at it and embroidered on it was, “Carly, will you marry me?” It was so special because our dog means the world to us, and it was such a simple idea.
