Toscano Bridal Real Wedding : Rachael & Paul

Earlier this year I had the  pleasure of working with Rachael to create her a unique, classic gown for her wedding to Paul.  Rachael is one of those special people that are as beautiful on the inside as they are on the outside. She shares with us a little of her experiences on the Blog today.

Bride: Rachael

Groom: Paul

Date of your Wedding: 4 July 2015

Where did you meet?

Originally meet while at high school at a party in 2001. Lost touch after school, but reconnected in June 2012 on Queen Street in the City. We literally bumped into each other. Caught up for drinks that night and just kept on hanging out. Absolutely meant to be!

Style concept for your wedding:

Classic, elegant, fun and full of love.

Inspiration for your wedding:

A myriad of sources pulled together to (hopefully) be classy, elegant, sophisticated, timeless, beautiful and fun.


The best advice I was given:

Enjoy every moment because the actual day will go so fast. And I did. It was so special.

Your Hen’s night:

Afternoon drinks in the city with girlfriends and nude life drawing!!! Followed by dinner and dancing.
