Finding the perfect wedding dress is sometimes hard, but for Julia after seeing this gown by Vera Wang, and visiting countless bridal salons in New York, her decision was made.
‘ I just couldn’t stop thinking about one exquisite gown by Vera Wang. After our third visit to the salon in as many days, I knew, this was the One. It was everything I had dreamed of for my wedding, a gorgeous modern gown, beautifully crafted and unlike anything I had ever seen or worn before. It was truly the most wonderful experience and I cannot speak highly enough of the incredible attention and service provided by the staff at Vera Wang.’
Julia carried a bouquet of white tulips, while her bridesmaids carried fushia pink.
The bridesmaids wore black strapless knee length dresses.
The groomsmen and Matthew wore classic black suits, and crisp white shirts.
Julia and Matthew’s dream was ‘to have a small intimate church ceremony for our wedding’,
so they chose to get married at St Ignatius College chapel, at Riverview, where Matt went to school.
After a stunning location shoot, Julia and Matthew, and their bridal party, made their way to
Catalina Restaurant in Rose Bay, Sydney.
Here they spent the evening dining and dancing amongst their dear friends and family.
Guests came from all corners of the globe to celebrate their wedding day,
including Matt’s parents and many friends all the way from USA, England and Nigeria.
Julia describes how they added a personal touch to the reception..
‘At the entry table at our reception at Catalina, we arranged for framed wedding photos of our parents, grandparents, and siblings to be placed amongst the flowers and tealights. It brought a lovely personal touch to the gorgeous venue and turned into a wonderful talking point with friends and family throughout the night.
We asked the married couple why they chose gm photographics as the photographers to
capture their day and they replied . ‘We had both seen GM’s work before and loved their gorgeous natural style.
After meeting with Graham and Angela at the studio we knew they were the perfect choice to capture our wedding day.’
Thank you to both Matthew and Julia for sharing your love and special day with us.
We wish you many, many happy years together.
