MIKE & ILDI

THE COU­PLE: Mike Ti­money, CEO of Smiles In­clu­sive, and Ildi Redak, Pink Di­a­mond Spe­cial Events

THE LOVE STORY: The new­ly­weds met on­line through a dat­ing site, com­ing face-to­face for the first time over din­ner at Glass restau­rant at Ma­rina Mi­rage in 2016. They bonded over their pas­sion for glo­be­trot­ting, ce­ment­ing their re­la­tion­ship when they trav­elled to Rio for the Olympics later that year. They’ve since em­barked on ad­ven­tures to Helsinki, Aus­tria and Slo­vakia, the UK and Amer­ica. Mike waited un­til they were back on home turf to pop the ques­tion last year. The cou­ple were hav­ing din­ner on the way to see The Body­guard at QPAC when Mike got down on one knee spark­ing ap­plause from din­ers.

THE BIG DAY: Fam­ily flew in from around the world to wit­ness the cou­ple’s wed­ding at South­port Yacht Club on Septem­ber 14. Mike’s par­ents ar­rived from the UK and Ildi’s sis­ter trav­elled from Italy. Mike’s four sons were his best men. Ildi made her en­trance in a red Ferrari and the cou­ple ex­changed their vows on a float­ing pon­toon over­look­ing the sparkling Broad­wa­ter.

THE DRESS: Ildi’s gown fea­tured a fit­ted lace bodice and cape over­lay. She car­ried a bou­quet of light pink roses and baby’s breath.
