Andrew and Amie Lloyd were married at the National Arboretum last year.

It was a fateful night four years ago when Amie,
nee Macarthur, and Andrew Lloyd met at a
friend's Christmas party.
With Andrew wearing a Santa's little helper
costume and Amie dressed up as a Christmas
tree, it was "most definitely" love at first sight.
The two felt an instant connection the
moment they met.
It wasn't until a month later, at another
mutual friend's party, the pair exchanged
On Valentine's Day in 2012, Andrew sent
Amie flowers to her work.
That same night they had their first date.
Despite the romantic connotations associated
with February 14, the couple decided they
would celebrate anniversaries on the following
day, so it wasn't so cliche.
"Secretly, to get flowers and chocolate two
days in a row," Amie joked.
The couple became engaged one year on,
when Andrew proposed to Amie on a starry
night atop Mount Ainslie.
"I was so surprised, it took me a few minutes
to say yes as it was too difficult to talk,'' she
However my nod was very convincing.''
The couple recently wed in a ceremony at the
National Arboretum, overlooking the capital.
"We chose this location after we visited it for
the first time,'' Amie said.
The location, scenery and view was
breathtaking, and these were our deciding
Amie walked down the aisle in the Margaret
Whitlam pavilion in a floor-length ivory
strapless dress embellished with delicate
diamantes, wearing her mother's wedding veil.
When pronounced man and wife, Andrew
"threw" Amie down and passionately kissed her,
a moment she said she will never forget.
The wedding was celebrated by 75 of the
couple's family and friends.
The Lloyds are planning a honeymoon for
their first wedding anniversary, but are yet to
decide on a perfect location.

2013 to 2014.
Weston Creek Community Council chairman
Tom Anderson said buses were a lifeline for
passengers -- provided they ran on time.
If the bus doesn't come or is late or early,
worlds are turned upside down for that day,'' he
You don't get to work on time or you are
home late and don't get to pick your child/
children up from childcare or after school care.
If they don't work properly people get very
upset as they are reliant on them for this
The data, released by Canberra Connect,
revealed Civic, Belconnen and Philip were the
most complained about suburbs.
In the same order, the three suburbs also
