Alice & Michael

Alice Robinson and Michael Kocman

Alice Robinson and Michael Kocman were swimming by a waterfall in the Northern Territory when Michael popped the question last year.

“We were at Maguk Falls in Kakadu National Park and Michael pulled the ring out of his pocket,” Alice says.

“I was very nervous about dropping it in the water!”

After “swiping right” on each other in 2017, Alice cancelled on Michael a couple of times before they finally met up for coffee on Rundle Street.

“We instantly connected and chatted for hours and the rest is history!” Alice says.

Alice and Michael were married on October 8, at a ceremony which featured their dog, Agnes, as ring bearer and a reception that included an unexpected visit from a resident koala, which gatecrashed the event soon after the bridal party entered.
