It’s a match! Jessica and Ivan swipe right for romantic wedding

Wedding: 24/10/2015

Posted by Kellie | 12 February, 2016

“The love story of Ivan and I started with the most modern of gestures, swiping right on a smartphone.”

Yes, thank the marriage gods for Tinder – all the romance that would never blossom without it! Jessica Zehetner, 29, and Ivan Pavlovic, 32, were encouraged to download the dating app by friends. “I was a bit sceptical about my prospects at first, but was intrigued by Ivan’s profile,” says Jessica. But then a romance developed in a more old-fashioned way, with the couple speaking for a few weeks before going out for coffee.

One year later Ivan proposed over ice cream and they began planning their romantic wedding for October 24, 2015. Their ceremony at St John’s Chapel at Sydney University was followed by a reception at View by Sydney in Walsh Bay. “It was an intimate affair, and made special with lots of personal touches from Ivan and me,” says Jessica of the day joined by 140 guests. “The most important part was having our family and friends there together, and seeing them happy because we’re one now.”

The couple honeymooned in Fiji.
