Posted by Anna | 5 December, 2017

Katerina and Nikolai were inseparable from the moment they met.

The pair, aged 29 and 27 respectively, met a charity event. Nikolai asked Katerina for a dance and that was that.

“Our relationship saw no difference in skin colour, background or religion,” explains the bride. “We were two people from two completely different sides of the world that fell in love with one another’s hearts and minds. We have been madly in love from that moment.”

They married at their classic romance wedding on April 30, 2017 with 145 guests in Melbourne. A ceremony at St Ilija Macedonian Orthodox Church and a reception at Showtime Events Centre.

“What I love most about Nik is his ability to make me laugh and make me burst into so much happiness no matter the situation, our sense of humour together is unstoppable,” says Katerina.

As for Nikolai, he loves that she is his rock. “Her family values and passion for life and love are the things that I cherish most about our relationship as I know that with her life will be an effortless journey.”
