These two lovebirds had a beautiful vintage-inspired family wedding to celebrate their union
Couple: Josephine & Nick
Location: Doltone House, Sydney
Nick and Josephine met at the age of six when they both attended the same primary school. It wasn’t until much later, after they finished high school, that they reconnected and fell in love. “We have been inseparable ever since,” says Josephine.
The couple spent only eight months of planning and wed in front of 160 guests at St Peter Chanel Catholic Church in Hunter’s Hill. The bride wore a stunning made-to-measure Louise Alvarez silk satin gown with a silk chiffon circular skirt. The bodice had French corded lace detailing and sat just off the shoulder. “A highlight for me as a bride was working with Louise and her staff. Their beautiful designs made creating my gorgeous gown so easy.
They understood my desire for simple elegance and the gown complemented my beautiful bridesmaids in their soft silk dresses. It was a wonderful and positive experience,” says Josephine.
The newlyweds and their guests partied the night away at their gorgeous classic vintage-themed reception at Doltone House, Darling Island Wharf. They dined on appetisers of gourmet antipasto, fresh king prawns and smoked salmon; had mains of barramundi and beef medallions; and enjoyed vanilla crème brûlée, trios of chocolate, wild berry compote and amaretti crumble for dessert.
“The choices available when planning a wedding can be overwhelming, so try to plan a little at a time but enjoy every moment of it.”
