About the Couple

Nancy and David met at a mutual friend’s birthday celebration and within eight months, they were engaged! David opted for a Christmastime proposal, popping the question on Christmas night. After the couple finished dinner at his parents’ house, David told Nancy that he wanted to take her into the city. In true rom-com style, it started to rain, so he took Nancy under the Harbour Bridge and it was there that he asked her to be his wife forever.  “I got teary-eyed and said yes,” shares the bride.

The Bride’s Custom-Made Gown

Nancy looked like a princess on her wedding day. She achieved this fairytale look thanks to her custom-made gown from Australian bridal designer Norma & Lili Bridal Couture. The stunning strapless gown featured a mermaid silhouette, sweetheart neckline, a cathedral train, and a sparkly bodice adorned with crystals and pearls.

The Wedding Ceremony

The couple exchanged vows in a traditional ceremony at Regina Coeli Catholic Church, before making their way to downtown Sydney’s Doltone House Hyde Park for the reception. Their grand entrance was to traditional Lebanese music performed live by an 8-piece band. Later in the night, they had their first dance to “My Baby You” by Marc Anthony.

The Elegant Reception

The magical reception was a sight to behold. Nancy and David wished for an elegant look to match the gold accents of their venue, and their wish definitely came true! Guest tables were embellished with black linens and tall, white floral arrangements. For the head table, the bride requested all-white flowers. Trailing white orchids were suspended from the ceiling and cascaded down the front of the head table. One of our favourite details was the flickering tea lights inside clear glass ornaments that hung down from the flowers.
