Our love story

My Husband and I knew of each other through mutual friends in the early years of high school and had the occasional online conversation. We first met in person at a friends party a few years later when we were 17, spending the entire evening just the two of us talking and getting to know each other. Since that day, we have spent the past 10 years growing up together, travelling and establishing a life together before getting married in March this year.

The wedding venue & styling

Our dream wedding was always a destination wedding in a beautiful villa in Italy, however thanks to the pandemic, we knew that wasn’t going to be an option anymore and decided getting married on our 10 year anniversary was more important. This resulted in us choosing a private property estate with enough room for our family to spend the entire weekend celebrating with us. My vision was to bring the Italian villa vibe to Red Hill for an intimate family celebration.

The Dress

I always knew there were certain details I had to have as part of my dress, but I could never have imagined the end product being so perfectly me. I trusted Cassandra the entire process and my goodness, it payed off! She just has so much talent. I would not have changed a single thing about my dress, I felt so beautiful in the dress and still to this day  receive so many compliments about how amazing the dress was. I seriously can’t thank Cass enough.
