The beautiful couple met at work in 2014, Kar Wai claims it was love at first sight. Proposing at St Regis on Kar Wai’s birthday made the perfect excuse to avoid suspicion from Leann, making it a successful romantic surprise.
Leann, being very petite, had her dress custom made with full lace, just how she wanted it to be. She also wanted to make sure that the dress was light enough to travel from Malaysia to Melbourne and suit their outdoor ceremony. The second dress was a fun, feminine, flowy and fluffy dress that Leann envisioned dancing the night away in. The couple chose Melbourne for their wedding as whenever they are there for a holiday, good things happen. It has a special place in their hearts. Kar Wai also wanted somewhere with a cold climate to avoid the heat back home. The destination was to be a mega holiday celebration and escape with family and friends. The stunning wedding had an intimate theme with a moody palette that would remind you of the warmth, love and intimacy of Christmas.
After having met the love of his life through work, Justin proposed during a 7-course degustation dinner cruise around Sydney harbor, popping the question in front of the opera house.
The couple had a destination wedding in Slovenia which took two years to plan. They tied the knot in beautiful Otočec Castle, which was built in the 13th century and is the only water castle in Slovenia. Surrounded by water, ducks and swans – it is the perfect destination for a fairytale wedding. The castle features rectangular fortress walls, circular-shaped towers, and an inner courtyard.
Monique and Justin then went all over Europe for their honeymoon, visiting Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia, Santorini, Positano and Switzerland, followed by a cruise stopping at Copenhagen, Tallin, St Petersburg, Helsinki and Stockholm.

One day, after having worked together for 6 years, Caroline and Fil started randomly chatting about their common interest in fitness. Before Fil left for Europe for 6 weeks, he came over daily to Caroline’s house and on the last day before he left, her kissed her. He was at her doorstep the day he returned.
A girl loves a good manicure! Caroline had previously said to Fil that if he was to ever propose, to make sure her nails were done first. Not realising the connection, Caroline went along to get her nails done when her sister invited her. When she got home, she found a trail of candles that lead to the lounge where Filippo was standing in a suit in the middle of the circle of candles, and popped the big question!
Caroline actually found her dream dress while watching the TV series ‘Married at first sight’. She found out the designer and took a risk by putting the deposit on the gown prior to attending the fitting. They flew over for one night to the Gold Coast and fortunately the dress was perfect!

Thanks to their mutual friend playing cupid, Brooke and Chris were fated to be matched together. They have been inseparable since the day they met. Chris proposed to the love of his life during the beautiful sunrise at Sealy Lookout, the proposal was followed with a romantic weekend of romantic activities before they announced it to everyone!
The couple’s wedding theme was inspired by Coachella, they call their theme ‘Wedstival’. They wanted their wedding to feel like a festival and celebration – it had to be outdoors and natural. The couple set up an antique dressing table and filled it with jars of glitter and face paint for their guests to decorate themselves during the free-spirited reception. Brooke originally loved a bridal dress called ‘Sydney Dress’, but had no idea who the designer was. She ended up finding it by chance online and made an appointment right away. She loved the bohemian style dress as she thought it would perfectly suit their wedding theme.
