Eleni and Dave met 18 years ago, but it would be another 12 years before they reunited and sparks flew. They recently married at AnnaBellaThe Wedding Chapel with 100 of their family and friends present, including Eleni’s three beautiful children and Dave’s two boys.
“The vibe and energy was amazing in the chapel – so much love & laughter from the start of the day to the end. Having our children beside us for one of our most important days as a couple and our family was truly special. The Chapel is amazingly beautiful and Suzanne, our celebrant, was so passionate about her job it really shined through in the way she helped plan and delivered our ceremony. It was unique and fun and romantic! It all just flowed effortlessly.”
“’As we walk this journey from beginning to end, I’m glad I have my true love and best friend’ I found these words written by Dave on the bottom of my shoes the day of my wedding! How Sweet!”
Biggest splurge The Kombi was a special splurge as Dave loves them and I organised it as a surprise for him.
