The Wedding of Trish and Giuseppe

Tell us about your journey together, from how you met, to what the proposal was like!

We met through a mutual client of ours (Giuseppe trained her in the gym, I did her eyebrows). After cancelling a few too many dates, I decided to put myself out there and go on that date. That date turned into many, and it wasn’t long after that we officially started dating.

Then came the proposal. It was move-in day and I was in my gym gear cleaning the house and organising the kitchen. Our parents and siblings were helping us out too. We were called outside to get some photos together by the pool, when all of a sudden Giuseppe got down on one knee and asked me if I would marry him in front of all our loved ones. It was the most magical day, and one we will never forget.

What does marriage mean to you?

Marriage to us means a lifelong commitment and partnership with the one you love. But for the most part it means family. Living with the love of your life and your kids is priceless.

What, besides the obvious ‘I Do’, was your favourite part of your wedding?

Celebrating our love for eachother in front of our family and friends.

What traditions, new and old, did you incorporate in to your wedding and why?

As the bride, our Greek tradition is for me to stay at my parents’ house the night before, wake up and get ready with my mum and bridesmaids. The morning consists of lots of food, and, of course, the family arrives once I’m dressed and ready to celebrate my wedding day. We also have a Greek bouzouki player come, and my grandma sings a song she has written herself about how happy she is that I’m getting married to the man of my dreams.

Tell us about your decorations and wedding styling!

The theme for our wedding was modern classics. Think lots of candles and neutral flowers with a touch of greenery. For our wedding favours we had little bottles of olive oil with rosemary leaves inside.

What’s the best piece of advice you can give other brides to be?

Enjoy the planning and the journey, and don’t stress over the small stuff.

Take us through your planning journey, were there any vendors that were more important than others?

Our stylists, Celebrating In Style, and florist, Romantica Florals, made our wedding vision truly come to life!
