How did you meet: We went to high school together and have been friends since we were 15 – nearly half our life! It wasn’t until 7 years ago though that we became a couple.
How long did you spend planning your wedding? We had ideas before we became engaged about what we wanted and probably more importantly, what we didn’t want at our wedding. We were engaged for 11 months and luckily we agreed on most parts of the wedding so it wasn’t too hard at all!
Number of guests: 95
Describe the theme of your wedding and why you chose this theme: We wanted a classic, elegant theme. In saying that though, we just wanted everyone to have fun and for it to be more like a big party/celebration.
Ceremony location: Italian Village
Reception location: Italian Village
Describe the Brides dress: Full length ivory lace dress from Dressense at Miranda.

Stationery/ bonbonniere: For our bonboniere we had black white and blue M&M’s custom printed with our photo, names and wedding date on them. They were very cool and a bit of fun!

Describe your day: We could not have asked for anything better. Everything went to plan. The staff at Italian Village were fantastic, the food and drinks just kept coming and the music was awesome. We had such a great time. It flew by so quickly that we couldn’t believe when it was time to go.
What were your favourite parts of your Wedding Reception: Italian Village is just amazing. The exposed brick, the decorations, food, drinks, service, music and atmosphere just made it perfect. We can’t choose one thing!
Any Tips for Future Brides & Grooms: Everyone says it, but, the day really does fly by so just enjoy it!
