MAKAILA

Makaila wears the Pru dress Makaila is one of those friends you don't always see but when you do, it's always the same. Ever since we shared a room on Grade 5 Grampions camp, we had an immediate connection that has remained to this day. We went through our Spice/Girl/Hanson phase together (even when it wasn't viewed to be "cool"), plotting ways we would both somehow marry Zac Hanson. Had sleepovers where we tried to stay awake all night, Makaila was always better at this than me. Through the high school years we added parties, a healthy mix of rebellion and endless discussions about boys to the mix.

NICOLE

Nicole wears the Theodora kimono/dress This girl and I go right back to primary school. The funny thing is, whilst we knew each other all through our school lives and were friendly, it wasn't until after high school that we became really great friends. Nicole is one of the most caring, down to earth friends you could ask for. She would do anything for you, puts others before herself, goes above and beyond to stay in touch (something I wish I was better at) and has a knack for making everyone feel special. Recently married, Nicole talks about her amazing wedding to her husband Kade on the banks of the Murray River, life as a Newlywed and balancing her busy life as a primary...
