Susanne & Giancarlo
What was your favourite part of the day? Walking down the aisle and seeing each other for the first time, was truly the highlight for both of us. It will be a moment we both will never forget. Also, getting ready in the morning with each of our family and bridal party was so special and memorable. Giancarlo enjoyed having a cigar with his best man and groomsmen in the morning before they started getting ready. For me, it was having breakfast, mimosas and getting our hair and makeup done with my bridesmaids, flower girls and mom, it was such a special morning!
Tell us about any unique aspects: Having the amazing experience of custom designing my wedding dress with Whyte Couture, we were able to incorporate pieces of my moms wedding dress into my dress. It meant so much to both my mom and I to have my mom’s dress incorporated on my wedding dress.
Did anything go wrong? As we arrived to take our pictures after our ceremony at Glendon College, it started to downpour rain. Luckily our photographers had an umbrella, and we made the best out of it! The rain didn’t last long, and we had beautiful sunshine for the rest of our pictures.
Honeymoon? We had the most incredible and memorable honeymoon, travelling for 3 and half weeks to Italy (Rome, Florence, Tuscany and Positano) and Greece (Santorini, Mykonos and Paros).
Advice to couples planning their wedding? Try not to lose focus with all the planning and get lost in other people’s opinion. Remember it’s your day! Also, don’t forget to enjoy being engaged! It’s such a special time to take in and it goes by so quickly. Try to embrace the entire process leading up to the wedding and love every moment!
