Wedding Date | 19/10/2019
How did you both meet?
We both lived locally and knew of each other through family and friends.
Facebook reconnected us and the rest is history.
How did he pop the question?
We both love the beach, and one of our favourite spots is Bondi beach. As we began to do the bondi to bronte walk, he got down on one knee and asked me to spend the rest of his life with him.
What type of wedding did you plan, what was your theme?
The theme changed every week hahaha.
We wanted an itimate wedding filled with love with family and friends.
The theme was rustic/elegant and simple. We didn’t want to over do it with flowers or candles, but make it more romantic and intimate.
Which quirky features made your wedding unique?
Not quirky as such, but we wanted to start our reception with a bang. So as we walked out, we asked all our loved ones to join in with a dance. We were lifted up and got the party started!
The DJ said it was the best party entrance!
Where did you hold the ceremony?
The ceremony was at St Francis Xavier Cathedral in Wollongong!
I was so surprised with how many people turned up to the church!
Why did you choose City Beach?
We both have a love for the beach and wanted somewhere close to the water. When we went to Citybeach, I knew it as the place for us!
What was the most memorable moment from the day?
moment from the day?
Walking down the isle, seeing everyone there to share this special moment with us and seeing Emanuel waiting for me.
And also our Entrance! It was so much fun and loved everyone sharing our first dance with us.
What was it like dealing with Wedding Coordinator Melissa?
Mel and all the staff were amazing. Answering my hundreds of emails, giving me advice on what works well, allowing me to change my mind a hundred times as well!
They turned all my wishes and dreams into reality. Walking into the reception room took my breath away, it was everything I wanted and so much more!
What’s your No.1 go to song that had to be included in your playlist?
So many to choose from!
But we wanted a mix with cultural music, when we played Arabic and Greek (even though were Maltese)music everyone ran to the dance floor and danced with us!
