I picked this dress as I wanted something a little different from what people anticipated me to wear… I fell in love with the tulle and the effect with the mother of pearl and the swarovski belt… it looked like a visage of clouds with a touch of elegance….
My accessories were made up of my favorite: Oroton, Chanel and of course Tiffany, what girl could go wrong! I decided to do my own hair, soft curls border waves at the request of my new husband… his favorite hair style on me!
I had such amazing bridesmaids and a gorgeous flower girl… My darling sister (Iva Montero) was my Matron of Honour in a silk number from ASOS London, (Bridesmaid) Emily Bode wore one shoulder Cue dress, (Bridesmaid) Nikki Rayner wore sparkley number from Diana Ferrari…. all dresses wore around the colour of sapphire blue to reflect my engagement ring. My darling niece, Claudia Montero, who just turned 1, wore Zara.
The engagement ring / Wedding bands
My engagement ring (made by Arnold & Co) was a fabulous surprise from Mitchell with a unique Art-Deco style diamonds with a sapphire in the middle… shortly after. i found out that my mother too had a gorgeous sapphire as her engagement ring… all the more special! Weddings rings were brought from a fabulous jellewer in Sydney – Varoujan Jewellers.
We both decided that our wedding was to have a touch of tradition but most importantly a big party, a celebration that joined family and friends, celebrating in the Australian and Croatian culture… Mitchell and I both look over the day and wouldn’t change a thing, it most definitely was a memorable occasion. Mitchell and I wanted to show a difference in our wedding photos which Kelly Tunney was more than happy to go along with… Kelly managed to showcase how we felt about each other and the special people that we shared the day with! Overall we just wanted to be ourselves, happy!
