Grand Affair KRISTINA

JAMES

8TH MARCH 2014 – OATLANDS HOUSE, NEW SOUTH WALES Photography by Xtraordinary Photos & Video

F

or Kristina’s birthday James organised a beautiful picnic and dinner convincing Kristina that there wassswas an amazing house being built that he wanted to show her. Little did Kristina know the surprise that awaited. “As we drove closer I saw hundreds of candles line the road with a heart in the centre, we got out of the car and James read me a poem that he had written. As he came down on one knee, lit up in the water on a boat was a sign reading ‘MARRY ME’ and he presented me with a diamond ring.” A grand and elegant affair was on the cards for their wedding day. They fell in love with Oatlands House, with their picturesque interiors and golf course setting. “We wanted soft colours, lots of white, creams, taupes and a hint of dusty pink”. The couple enjoyed their special day complete with sunny skies and their closest friends and family including relatives who travelled from Canada and Lebanon just to celebrate. An entertaining reception followed, with live performances from bands and a dance group, which allowed their guests to get involved. “Its hard to choose one of our favourite moments from our wedding as the entire day was something we had been planning and looking forward to for over a year. Our bridal waltz was another stand out moment for us too as we had fireworks and dry ice on the dance floor as we danced to our song” said Kristina.

PAUL

2ND NOVEMBER 2013 – CLUB DA VINCI, VICTORIA Photography by Darren Seiler Photographer

T

he couple ventured to New Zealand to celebrate their two-year anniversary where Paul popped tthethnthe question. “After a relaxing day at a day spa, we headed back to our motel and got ready, upon walking downstairs was a beautiful Bentley. The driver took us to the top of a mountain, which overlooked Queenstown. From there, we were taken to a restaurant and to our own private room with roses, petals, candles and our own wood fireplace. The waitress handed us our menu and left the room, then my favourite song came on and as I opened the menu on gold paper was ‘Samantha will you marry me’. Paul was down on one knee with the most amazing ring I’ve ever seen. It was everything and more than I had dreamed of. With a few tears, laughing and excitement, of course I said yes.” Samantha and Paul were married at Ampelon Gardens, Gol Gol in a beautiful garden ceremony. Samantha looked breathtaking in a custom gown made by J’Aton Couture. A reception followed at Club Da Vinci where the newlyweds and guests celebrated. The space was beautifully decorated with items made by the Bride and her Father and finished with blooms by Neans Florist. They also enjoyed a four-tier cake adorned with metallic colours and ribbon by Amazing Cakes. Although it was hard to decide a favourite moment from the day, the couple agreed becoming husband and wife was a standout moment. “The day was just so amazing, but I’d probably say when I got to stand next to him and become his wife…It was so nice to see him as happy as I was” said Samantha.

azha and Elias initially met through work with Elias interviewing Nazha for the position. When it came came to the proposal, Elias planned the perfect way to surprise Nazha. “It was the ultimate scavenger hunt that incorporated breakfast by the beach, a massage and pampering session, a romantic picnic at one of our favourite spots and an intimate engagement dinner with family” said Nazha. They were married at St Joachim Catholic Church, Lidcombe. Nazha wore a beautiful gown by Australian designer, Steven Khalil while her bridesmaids were dressed in gowns made by Norma Bridal Couture. A reception followed at Oatlands House where the couple enjoyed celebrating with friends and family. The space was beautifully styled with glass vases filled with pink and white flowers and complimented by silver Tiffany chairs. Nazha said her favourite moment from their wedding day was during the ceremony. “As cliché as it sounds, it was actually the first time I saw him as I walked down the aisle. We both couldn’t stop smiling!” said Nazha.

This location also holds a very special meaning to us, as Steve and I would spend lots of time at station pier during the summer” Pinar said. The reception was breathtaking decorated with tall trumpet vases with an assortment of lemon leaves and white roses over a mirror base. They also enjoyed dancing with friends and family to an array of genres played by Hg4 Band. “My Husband dedicated the most beautiful speech that made me feel so special and brought tears to my eyes; I feel so blessed to have him and can’t wait to embrace our future together. I have absolutely no regrets, and wouldn't change one thing about our 'special' day. The weather was perfect, the venue was perfect, and most of all sharing this day with our friends and family was the most important thing to us” said Pinar.
