Nicola and Matthew first met in 2011, having both enrolled at an Italian language class! This Bride was still in school, and Groom-to-be Matthew had decided to learn the language for fun with his cousin.
Before they knew it, after class chats turned into a friend request on Facebook, which led them on their grand adventure together!
Knowing Nicole was the One, Matthew booked out the exact Italian classroom that they first met in, and organised a personal chef for a romantic candle lit dinner. Whilst sharing a dance to their favourite song, Matt swung Nicola around and surprised her on one knee.
Reciting their vows at Our Lady of Mount Carmel in Mount Pritchard. Nicola stunned guests and her Husband alike in her Couture by Francesca gown as she came down the aisle.
They even stopped at Matthew’s family shop, Joe Papandrea Quality Meats / Son of a Butcher for a bite to eat before their Reception!
This couple were keen to party, and treated their guests to live entertainment by Fratelli Del Sud, playing traditional Italian music in honour of their heritage.
What a beautiful love story, Fairies!
