Freya & Shurjo
Shurjo and i met through friends and he asked me out for dinner. On our first date Shurjo brought me chocolates, opened the car door, halved the last scallop and then paid for my taxi home like a true gentleman. After one month he told me i was the one, with a very romantic evening planned. Three years later, we married on our aniversary.
Did your wedding have a particular theme or a particular style?
I was after a romantic, sophisticated and elegant with the wow factor to it. The focus was more on a traditional wedding than a modern one. Ceremony location: St marys Anglican Chuch, Waverley, 240 Birrel Street , Waverly At 1:30pm Friday 24th julyhttp://www.stmaryswaverley.org.au/
Describe your dress & name the designer
My dress was an A-line skirt with a sweetheart neck line, embroidered with crystals, pearls and lace. I had the straps made out of the left over lace. The designer was Maggie Sottero and was bought from DRESSSENSE Bridal in Miranda.http://www.dressense.com.au/
Describe how you wore your hair:
i got the inspiration from the video clip “Love Story” by taylor swift. I wanted to be a little more formal for the ceremony and then be able to take it down for the reception.
Describe your shoes in detail:
My shoes were ivory round toe with little crystal beading on the toes. I bought these from alan pinkus. i didnt want high heels as i wanted to be as comfortable as possible.

Flower Girls were wearing a soft lilac and ivory dress which i bought from DRESSSENSE bridal.

It was a three tier traditional fruitcake. Carol from Cakesplus in Lane Cove did an amazing job. She was very professional and enjoys what she does.
