Maria Teresa (affectionately known as MT) beams glorious angelic light wherever she goes and so trust us when we tell you it was a true privilege to be a part of hers and Mario’s Big Day. Every email, phone call, meeting and no kidding even her text’s were filled with a joy and kindness that could make Mother Teresa look like a brat.

MT met her beloved Mario when they were both 16 years old and luckily, even in their adolescent bubble, they both knew they had stumbled across something extraordinary. Twelve years later they had shared, grown and shaped a life together and it was time to celebrate with their nearest and dearest (all 350 of them!!)

MT and Mario always knew their proud Italian heritages meant their wedding was going to be big however they refused to believe they had to compromise on their vision of a black tie affair with an abundance of food, flowing cocktails all in an amazing setting. The NGV was an obvious choice and perfectly framed the magic of the day.

We knew the design needed to celebrate the grandeur and beauty of the NGV without competing with it. The overall look was romantic yet polished. The wild florals juxtaposed against the architecture of The British Gallery and The Grand Hall. Textures of brass, pearl and velvet weaved through every space to create a luxurious and welcoming setting.

The night was perfect and precious in every way, there were tears and laughter and conga lines of epic proportions. Lifelong memories were made that night and to be a witness to it all makes as feel like we have the best jobs in the world.

To MT and Mario, thank you for the honour, it truly was unforgettable.
