Helene and Gerard wedded in a beautiful waterfront ceremony with their closest. The couple opted for a late afternoon wedding at Pasadena, Church Point, which turned out to be a night to remember!
It was the couple’s anniversary, and they decided to celebrate with a romantic dinner. They decided to get an Uber home, and as soon as Helene walked in, Gerard had set up the biggest and most beautiful arrangement of florals she had ever seen. He then got on one knee and popped the question… Ahhh the feels!
“There were so many heartwarming moments from the day, but for me, what was most special was how Gerard and I would make time to enjoy private moments together throughout the night. As funny as this sounds, It’s easy to get caught up in a whirlwind of vendors and guests, which makes it hard to spend much time together to enjoy the evening as a couple. I loved how Gerard and I would always find each other for a drink, a dance or a quick chat. We even stole a few moments together outside underneath the full moon. It was amazing to be able to create “US” moments and memories that we will cherish for the rest of our lives,” Helene recalls her favourite part of her special day.
Wanting to bring Europe to Australia, Helene and Gerard found the perfect location in Pasadena, Church Point, to make those dreams come true. Helene arrived to the ceremony on a boat with her dad. The celebration was seamless and transitioned fluidly from day to night, without having guests waiting around. They began their outdoor ceremony in the late afternoon, followed by champagne and canapés out in the garden, and accompanied by a saxophone band for entertainment. This all really helped set the tone for the evening to follow. Dancing under the stars… It was truly magical.
Advice from the Bride
“Two words: PLAN LESS. I know this advice would probably give a lot of brides some anxiety at the thought, but I think the amount of planning and overthinking that went into the day was really unnecessary. The reality is, that something will always go wrong, and even though you think it’ll ruin the entire day, I actually found myself going with the flow and not caring about little hiccups that arose. I was so happy to be celebrating with my friends, family and husband, that all the minor details didn’t even matter. It’s important to hone in on the focus of the day, and not let the little things stress you out,” Bride Helene.
