Friends know best: Hot tip ends in Adelaide wedding

Wedding: 09/05/2015

Posted by Kellie | 9 June, 2015

Girlfriends know you like no other and are the perfect matchmakers in some circumstances.

When Seth Roberts swanned past Adriana Porcelli he caught not just her eye, but her friend’s as well. “When he first walked past me I thought he was handsome and suggested to one of my best friends “there’s one for you,” smiles Adriana. “He returned and questioned if I was talking about him or to him.” Adriana was quick to explain they were saying “all good things” and later they shared their first kiss.

The couple later moved to Adelaide, renting separately at first, but Adriana was wooed by Seth’s cooking skills. “When not at his house for tea I would have microwave meals,” she laughs.

Following Adriana’s dream to join the RAAF, they moved to Wagga Wagga and adopted two kelpies. Then it was back to Adelaide where they collected a cat. Nine years later – they were engaged!

Their Adelaide wedding on May 9, 2015 was like a “big celebration” according to the couple. Fittingly, they gave their guests either crystal wine stoppers or vintage key bottle openers.

A “dress connoisseur,” Adriana graced two gowns; a Jack Sullivan design for the ceremony and Vera Wang for the reception.
