Wedding: 11/10/2014

Posted by Kate | 7 March, 2015

Carefree couple Pauline Agius and Ben Da Silva were determined their wedding should be a stress-free event.

The Perth pair returned to their hometown for their Melbourne wedding at Brunswick’s St Ambrose Catholic Church in front of 110 friends and family on October 11, 2014.

“It was the most relaxed, elegant celebration of love and we loved every minute of it,” Pauline, 27, says.

Pauline and Ben, 28, opted for St Ambrose at it perfectly matched their classic, vintage theme. “It is an old bluestone church with beautiful stained glass and is small and intimate,” Pauline says.

“We did the whole Catholic shebang with a twist, writing our own vows and incorporating a candle ceremony joining two families together.”

The reception was held at Sketch Docklands, which boasts a sleek and classic design, black and purple interior and spectacular views of the Bolte Bridge. “With this in mind we decided to go simple with black tablecloths and bright pink and white floral arrangements,” Pauline says.

And Pauline’s simple advice to future brides? “Take it all in before it flies by.”
