Posted by Kate | 20 April, 2015

Paulina Rotshtein and Vlad Newman grew up together and then grew apart before rediscovering their love and walking down the aisle in a gorgeous destination wedding.

The childhood sweethearts, Paulina, 31, and Vlad, 33, began dating in 2000 after connecting at a family event, however, they broke up three years later and another three years passed before the Melbourne pair reconnected.

Meeting up again, this time, they knew they belonged together.

“It felt as if no time had passed.  My heart was exactly where I left it – with him,” Paulina said.

They moved in together, travelled and started a family before Vlad proposed while on holiday in Lorne in 2012.

The couple were keen for a low-key celebration and wed in front of 35 guests at Sea Temple Pullman Hotel at Queensland’s Palm Cove.

“We wanted something small and intimate so we could truly enjoy the day and have the opportunity to share it with our closest friends,” Paulina says.

“The day was perfect and reflected exactly who we are as a couple.”
