There are some weddings where the images just tell you so much about the people. The love between the couple just oozes off the page, and the expressions of their family and friends tell you all you need to know about what kind of people they are. This is one of those weddings. Add to that the size of their bridal party and a jam-packed dance floor and you just KNOW that Marie & Fabio are great people. Marie and Fabio first met over 12 years ago, but it wasn’t until late 2009 that they started dating. Within 6 months, Fabio knew that Marie was the girl that he wanted to marry. Choosing their favorite breakfast haunt as the perfect intimate venue, Fabio proposed by slipping a diamond engagement ring over the straw of her juice and getting down on one knee to propose. What a simple, romantic way to say – I love this life that we lead together. Have breakfast with me everyday for the rest of our lives. Now I don’t know if he actually said that but you know, actions speak louder and all that… Whatever he said, it worked!
Marie & Fabio ‘s service was performed by a close family friend Fr Pat Doran at St Stephen’s Cathedral and celebrated all night with a reception at Moda Events Portside. With the help of the ever lovely Danielle from White + White Weddings & Events, Marie & Fabio had a truly stylish and just perfect wedding day. And Adam was the lucky guy that got to capture it all. Marie’s custom made gown, with a train over 3 metre long designed by Brad Webb from Darb Bridal Couture, was complimented by Giuseppe Zanotti sandals that Marie flew to Melbourne to purchase. The bridesmaids were dressed in Rachel Gilbert dresses encrusted in Swarovski Crystals, with Abigail Johnston and Linda Watt taking care of Hair and Make-up, and making these gorgeous girls look even more so. Fabio, one of Brisbane’s favorite baristas, opened one of his coffee shops between the service and reception, for a very special customer, his new wife, making her and the bridal party’s coffees. No mean feat dressed in a three piece suit. The reception was themed with Tiffany Chairs, brought in especially for the occasion, and it was made extra special with 80cm grand floral centerpieces from Baggaley’s Florist, who also created the beautiful bouquets on the day . That stunning 8 tier cake – Cake & Icing Centre , which was made quite the highlight during its cutting with a fireworks display organized with the help of Spectrum Fireworks. But what really made this wedding so beautiful, was the people, and what they mean to each other.
Marie & Fabio, thanks for choosing Studio Impressions to be part of your magical day. I know that Adam loved every minute of being your photographer – and it shows in these images. We wish for you a lifetime of this kind of love.
