Love is sweet: Chocolate surprise leads to Vanessa and Luca’s classic wedding

Wedding: 22/04/2017

Posted by Kate | 2 December, 2017

What girl doesn’t love chocolate and diamonds? Vanessa got a taste of both when partner Luca put together a proposal with a difference.

Luca, 32, visited Mount Lofty Gardens in the Adelaide Hills several times to find the perfect proposal spot before he got down on one knee.

“It was truly magical,” Vanessa says.

“After a beautiful lunch, he took out two Kinder Surprises for us (our favorite chocolate) and I was overwhelmed to find my beautiful engagement ring he designed as the Kinder Surprise gift accompanied with a little note ‘Will You Marry Me’.”

It was a case of trial and error for Luca to get the ring inside the egg and re-wrap the chocolate, but it was well worth the effort.

“I was very impressed with the level of patience and thoughtfulness that would have gone into planning this proposal. Truly unforgettable and I loved it!” Vanessa says.

The couple had a two-year engagement while planning their classic wedding in Adelaide.

They wed at St Francis of Assisi Catholic Church on April 22, 2017 in front of 250 family and friends. The celebrations continued at John Di Fede Reception Centre.

Vanessa says it was the perfect day surrounded by their family and friends.

“We were blessed with great weather, beautiful people and a one-of-a-kind husband and wife!” she says.

“The whole day Luca and I truly felt like a prince and princess.”
