Real Wedding: A Lavish Albanian Wedding at the Manor of High, Melbourne

“I had an amazing day planned for him, but what he had planned was perfect.”

After 3 years together, Sidorela thought she had Mitchell figured out pretty well – but it wasn’t until his birthday that she realised she was in for a lifetime of surprises. While dining at a dreamy restaurant that oozed romance, Mitchell delivered a speech that left Sidorela in tears! Before popping the question, he assured her that the best birthday present that she could give him was to say ‘I do’. After a beyond-satisfying dinner, friends and family waited downstairs to celebrate, along with flowers and gifts!

The morning of their wedding day was filled with tradition as Mitchell fell victim to the ‘traditional shave’. Followed by loads of food and dancing it was soon time for the ceremony. The most memorable moment for the pair was celebrating their relationship and being introduced as husband and wife to their loved ones.

lavish theme swept through the Manor of High, dressed in crystals and white florals. While a sense of tradition remained very evident throughout the night, Sidorela was sure to include modern aspects. A live band played a number of the pairs favourite songs at the ceremony, while a traditional Albanian band and DJ took over at the reception.

Be Inspired, Fairies!
