When Adrian first took Ellena out on a date, little did they know it would be the spot where Adrian would begin their engagement day.
When the moment came, Adrian and Ellena were out in Sydney’s city, visiting their favourite locations before ending up on the steps of the iconic Sydney Opera House. As the sun set along the harbour, Adrian got down on one knee and asked Ellena if she would marry him.
Their winter wedding had a classic vintage feel, with pops of colour from the bright florals to contrast against the cream and white tones of the day. Adding a DIY touch to the day were the teapots in which the flowers were placed, which Ellena found in op-shops and in her family cupboards.
In keeping with the theme of the venue, The Tea Room in the Queen Victoria Building, Ellena and Adrian organised the tables by names of teas rather than numbers. Capturing the day and its quirky touches were Clover Image and WW Member In A Maze Films.
When asked what tips she would give future brides on their wedding day, Ellena said the important thing is to enjoy the day.
“Take it all in. You’ve likely been planning and thinking about it for a while so just relax and enjoy the big day with your family, friends and husband!”
