Wedding: 03/16/2016

Angela Davison and Anthony Kocek’s spicy first date inspired a little bit of Mexico at their Mornington Peninsula wedding.

Angela, a personal trainer, 33, and Tony, an electrical fitter, 26, wed on January, 3, 2016 in an outdoor ceremony at Coolart Wetlands and Homestead, Somers, Victoria. An intimate reception for 45 followed at Somers General Store.

“One of our first dates was at a cute little Mexican restaurant so we wanted Mexican food for the menu,” says Angela. “We didn’t want a ‘chicken/beef’ wedding, and we wanted to showcase the Mornington Peninsula with it’s incredible food and wine. So the talented and patient Caelen Thorneycroft (of Somers General Store), along with the chefs, compiled a ‘Mexian Fiesta’ for us and our guests. People are still talking about how delicious the food was!”

The gorgeous photographs captured by Michelle Ducasse show off the couple’s modern-vintage aesthetic, with Angela in a sleek Carla Zampatti gown and her hair reminiscent of 1940s actress Veronica Lake. Tony showed off his smart, laid back style in a taupe plaid vest and navy trousers whilst the bridesmaids added a splash of mustard keeping the colour palette lively. Beautiful green and ivory blooms with yellow billy buttons blended with the outdoor surroundings.

“The day went so quickly – too quickly,” says Angela. “But we did it – we described our relationship through each touch, both at the ceremony and the reception. I wouldn’t change a thing, except to do it all over again.”

Angela and Tony first met at work but it wasn’t until her last day with the company that Tony plucked up the courage to message her on Facebook.

“We met on the Mornington Peninsula and it holds the greatest memories for us – so there was no doubt it’s where we would get married,” explains Angela.
