All the details for this beautiful wedding are classic and minimal. From Angela’s simple wedding dress, to the all ivory colour palette every single photo will stand the test of time for decades to come. A true classic!
Angela & Adam
Angela & Adam were married on 3rd March 2018 at Oakhill College Chapel with a reception afterwards at Doltone House. Angela chose a stunningly simple wedding dress from the Emanuella collection and was looked after by the beautiful ladies at Marry Me in Mosman. The day was captured superbly by Heart & Colour Photography. Every detail in this wedding is classic and minimal giving the whole day a timeless elegance. We love seeing the simplicity of our Tenerife gown with no adornment but a stunning pair of earrings, a veil, designer shoes and the most beautiful bride – Angela. The flowers are all ivory with green folliage, the bridesmaids are dressed in ivory, the accessories are nude, the cars are vintage and the groom and his groomsmen look like they walked off the set of a classic movie. Read on to hear more details from the bride herself….
Peter Trends: How did you meet your husband?
Angela: Adam attended an all boys high school and I attended an all girls high school and every year Adam’s school would hold a dance and invite three girls high schools, including my one. Adam spotted me at the dance, but didn’t approach me at the time. Insead he found out my msn email address (because msn chat was big back then) and added me on there. We chatted on msn and were friends for around 3-4 years before we actually started dating.
Peter Trends: How did your husband propose to you?
Angela: Adam and I love picnics, so it wasn’t out of the ordinary when he asked me on a Saturday morning if I wanted to go on a picnic. Adam packed a basket of goodies, a frisbee and picked me up from my house. In the basket of goodies there was a single serve packet of M&Ms and Adam and I normally split this in between the two of us. Instead of pouring half the packet in my hands and half in his hands, he poured the whole packet in my hands to which I said, “that is way too much,” before realising there was more than chocolate in the packet of M&Ms, there was also a ring hidden in there too. Don’t ask how he got the ring in the packet of M&Ms without making it look opened, he is very talented.
Peter Trends: Did you have a theme or concept for your wedding day? What was your inspiration?
Angela: Classic and minimal. Everything we chose was very simple and timeless so when we look back at our wedding day, we won’t have any regrets no matter what the decade or trend is.
A Simple Wedding Dress
Peter Trends: How did you find the experience of shopping for a wedding gown?
Angela: I really enjoyed it, but I think the people made the experience. I went with my mum, my mother in law, my childhood best friend, my best friend I met at work and my sister in law. They all made it lots of fun, didn’t take it too seriously and were honest with me as well.
Peter Trends: What did you love about your wedding gown?
Angela: It comes back to the theme of being timeless and minimal. The dress was so elegantly simple, it didn’t need too much to dress it up and it’s something I will never regret choosing.
Peter Trends: What was your favourite part of your wedding day?
Angela: The whole day was amazing, just to look around and see every single person we loved there at the chapel and at the reception. But of course nothing can beat walking down the aisle with my dad and seeing Adam for the first time at the chapel when the doors opened.
Peter Trends: Is there anything special you would like to share with us about your wedding day?
Angela: It was all special, but I don’t think anything could beat being able to see my 93 year old grandmother at my wedding. She flew all the way from the Philippines to be there and while she only made the chapel, it is something I will always remember.
Peter Trends: Do you have any words of wisdom for future brides?
Angela: Probably more so just a tip, I wrote notes on my phone throughout the day so I would never forget little moments that the photographer or videographer might not be able to capture. 3 weeks later I read through it and am so glad I did because you do forget certain things because so much happens that day.
