Real wedding: Monique and Justin

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.
