“I love love loved my dress. It was a amazing shopping experience with Francesca, she made the whole experience enjoyable. I flew down from Brisbane so I could got shopping with my sisters and mum who live in Melbourne and I am so glad I did. Raffaele Ciuca was the first and only shop I stepped into and so happy I came down to go there.”
RC – How did you meet Daniel?
Daniel and I met while we were both on a night out with our friends in Brisbane.
RC – How did Daniel propose?
Daniel proposed on our 5 year anniversary after we had been at dinner, we went for a walk along the Brisbane river which we usually do after dinner in the city. We were taking photos in front of the story bridge and as I turned around and he was on his knee asking me to marry him, it was so beautiful and romantic.
RC – Is there a particular reason as to why you chose your venue?
We chose our venue as we loved it the minute we walked into there and felt like it was right straight away. We both love that part of the coast in Northern NSW.
RC – Your favourite part of the wedding?
So hard to choose our favourite part the whole day was amazing. Walking down the aisle and seeing Dans face and his gorgeous smile was probably one of my most favourite and then at the reception sitting up at our bridal table and looking around to see all our closest family and friends being there was pretty amazing and knowing they were all there to celebrate with us.

RC – How did the dress make you feel?
The dress I got was not what I had actually envisioned but one Francesca had picked to what she believed would suit me and she was so right it was amazing, her expertise is truly a gift. As soon as I had it on and saw it on I was so in love.
RC – Tips for brides-to-be!
Biggest tip would be make sure you take a moment with your husband after the ceremony to take in the day, the day flies by so quickly so take a step back and look at how beautifully your day has come together.
