Sasha and Stefan’s elegant wedding at Ayers House included plenty of personal touches and emotion balanced with an abundance of love, joy and laughter.
After a surprise engagement during a winery tour, these two love birds were friends for a long time before they got engaged. ‘Stefan’s dad was taking the photo and I heard Stefan say to me “I know I don’t say it often enough but I love you so much”. I turned around to see him down on one knee and couldn’t work out what was happening. One by one all of our friends realised and thankfully it was all caught on video as it was all too much of a blur!’ recalls Sasha.
But, amongst all the crazy wedding preparation chaos there was much sadness. Out of the blue, Sashas Mum passed away just 2 weeks before leaving bride Sasha in a state of shock and bereavement. Holding back her tears, a particularly special moment for her was as she proudly danced with her Dad to a song her Mum had chosen for her.
You can’t imagine how difficult it would have been for Sasha to cope however she luckily had the support of some pretty amazing vendors including celebrant Kerry Tudor and photographer Kerry Rose ‘Our celebrant Kerry Tudor was with me every step of the way and made the ceremony run with ease. She also worked with us to create a custom ceremony that was a true reflection of us both. We also thank Kerry our photographer who went above and beyond all expectations and was so caring and empathetic’
As this beautiful couple settles into married life, newlywed Sasha offers the kind of advice that only someone who has planned a wedding can give. ‘Don’t lose sight of the reason you are getting married. It’s so easy to get caught up in the details, guest lists and politics so try and take time away from planning to gain some perspective.’
