While Chenelle Muller was attending her Year 12 formal, she wasn’t exactly scouting talent outside of her peers.
But the slip of a napkin from one of the waiters quickly turned into a romance. “There was no communication all night until the last five minutes when he wrote his number on a napkin and placed it in my hand before walking out,” explains Chenelle, 26, of Leigh Iacovangelo, 28.
“A few hours later, a text message; a few days later, a phone call…” and a few years after that the Melbourne couple married at their classic wedding on April 1, 2017.
A traditional ceremony with 190 witnesses took place at Toorak Uniting Church, followed by a reception at Linley Estate. The venue was decorated with crystal, florals and the colour navy, fitting for the autumn celebration. The bride describes their union as “authentic, traditional, elegant and most of all, fun.”
“It was the best day of our lives, one day we will share with our kids our wonderful love story,” smiles Chenelle.

Leigh donned a tux, double-cuff dinner shirt and black bow tie for the formal celebrations.
