When we got the submission from Lili and Michael’s wedding in Melbourne, we just knew this was one to love! Lili had the perfect idea of what she wanted on her big day… a glamorous meeting between East and West. We have her telling the story of love between her and Michael.
The first wasnt really the most romantic one as we actually used to work for the same company so we’d always see each other around the office and just got to talking one day.
Michael then proposed to me during the TV show “Family Guy” completely out of the blue. Honestly, if that isn’t a dream proposal, I’m not really sure what is! So I didn’t have to hesitate one single moment!
My bridal gown was handmade by Neomi Pereira from Neomi Allens Couture. I wanted something modern, western and elegant but with a whisper of The East. Neomi brought it to life and her creation was gracefully modern, effortlessly elegant and the perfect harmony of East and West. What stood out to me were the details, the tiny flowers, sewn by hand, with love in every stitch, the pearls, the lace, the collar….all amazing.
For the wedding day I envisioned the style of East meets the West. The theme for the day was black and gold with a touch of the 1920s. I definitely wanted a golden touch of glamour throughout the day.
For the reception, we wanted a place that was intimate and beautiful. As soon as I saw the court yard and the beautiful willow tree of The Willows, we knew that we found the perfect reception venue.
The favourite moment was of course marrying the love of my life and getting to share the day with the closest people in our lives.
Being a bit of a creative person myself, I did all the signage’s for the wedding, as well as the guest book and photo booth. It was fun to get a bit creative!
