Renee and Bruno wanted a wedding that represented them. With the motto “less is best” in mind, together they planned this stunning Sydney wedding.
Blessed with 25ᵒ degree weather in winter, the wedding was off to a great start. The groom cried from happiness all morning, and the bride was excited. Renee wore a stunning dreamy dress by Personalised Weddings Couture, complemented by an elegant headpiece from Roman & French.
Renee and Bruno focused on mixing their Lebanese and Italian cultures to create a wedding that was representative of them as a couple.The pair even spent hours crafting bottles of Limoncello and Ouzo for the bonbonnieres.
“Our reception represented us! It was simple! The white and gold casual theme carried through with cherry blossom centrepieces and pretty flowers scattered over the main table. The food was beyond amazing! Conca D’oro really impressed us with the mix of Italian and Lebanese cuisine.”
Music was a significant element on the day and was another way the pair blended their heritage. The bride walked down an aisle dressed with flowers and birdcages while a chilling rendition of Ava Maria was sung. At the reception, the music became more playful.
“[We] entered with a mix of Italian and Lebanese music, with The Godfather song playing by sax and the drums going crazy at the same time. The music transitioned into Italian after a little while, and all the guests danced and really enjoyed the mix.”
The night finished off with an elegant bridal waltz enhanced with fireworks and a captivating speech from the groom.
“He had hilarious references in his speech and surprised the crowd with his antics. His speech was reasonably long; however, I have never seen a crowd of 300 listen so interestingly…”
