MARIA + CHRIS

This bright, flower-filled day cen­tred around fam­ily, friends and, most of all, love!

Cosmopolitan Bride (Australia) - - JUST MARRIED -

De­spite a rainy start, noth­ing was go­ing to put a damp­ener on the ex­cite­ment of this happy cou­ple. Maria was walked down the aisle by both her mum and dad and, once she locked eyes with her groom, all her nerves melted away. Af­ter, the pair ar­rived at the re­cep­tion to find their plan­ning had come to life! It was soon time to get the party started, with all the guests hit­ting the dance floor, set­ting a fun-filled at­mos­phere for the rest of the even­ing. Be­fore they knew it, it was time for the new­ly­weds to make their way through the tun­nel formed by the arms of their loved ones and head off into the night.
