'I definitely didn't go into Tinder thinking I was going to meet my future husband.
I thought I'd definitely have to kiss a few toads first,' she said.
When she created her Tinder profile she listed a long list of specific criteria that she was looking for and because of this, most of her family and friends told her she was being 'too picky'.
'I myself wondered if this perfect person even existed - especially on Tinder!
Hearty plant-based meals were served family style to the tables with no set seats, which were named after countries we have travelled that were significant to us.'Guests were entertained throughout dinner by an amazing acoustic duo, who also played their first dance.
They also had a dessert wine bar in lieu of traditional desserts, apart from their two tier vegan wedding cake.'Initially I never thought I would meet someone on Tinder but the more people I spoke to, the more I realised all types of people with all types of agendas used the app,' she said.Speaking to FEMAIL Renee Nola, 33, a public servant from Sydney, and Steph Burchard, 21, a student from Brisbane, shared their stories.Although their experiences are slightly different both women said they have ended up with the man of their dreams.They used a local eco-friendly farmer florist to create their spectacular arbour and Renee's bouquet and punched their own environmentally friendly love heart confetti from gum leaves collected by her mum.'A selection of organic and vegan wines were then served in crystal glasses from an airstream bar while giant lawn games were played, as we escaped to some stunning nearby locations for our photos,' she said.'He presented me with the most beautiful diamond ring that was created just for me, after thoroughly researching my Pinterest pages and asking me a million questions, and asked me to marry him. ' She said 'We had a fully vegan wedding reception in a marquee lit up with fairy lights.Throughout the night Simon revealed to Renee that he met all of her criteria and more. The restaurant closed and we didn't want the date to end so we sheltered from the rain in a nearby park under the cover of children's play equipment where we ended up talking for hours,' she said.
