Maggie and Richie’s romantic winter wedding in Melbourne

Wedding: 05/06/2016

Posted by Kate | 22 December, 2016

When Richie and Maggie first met he would introduce her as his future wife – six years later it became reality in their romantic winter wedding.

“Richie always makes me laugh, even when he recycles his jokes,” smiles bride Maggie. “He makes me very happy.”

The Melbourne couple wed in an Orthodox ceremony on June 5, 2016 at St George’s Antiochian Church in Northcote.

Two hundred friends and family witnessed the traditional ceremony before the celebrations continued at The International of Brighton.

“The theme for the wedding was super romantic and whimsical. I wanted to incorporate Baccara roses, (which are the deep burgundy velvet roses,) along with cascading ivy, candles, and touches of both silver and gold,” Maggie says.

“It was a true winter wedding with touches of deep burgundy and blush.”
