Valentine’s Day romance warms the eve of classic wedding

Wedding: 15/02/2014

Posted by Kellie | 14 February, 2016

The spirit of Valentine’s Day carried through to Betty Karagianis and Robert Alacqua’s special day, as it was the night before they said “I do.”

“Our wedding day was filled with lots of romance, being married the day after Valentine’s Day and our setting was very romantic and elegant,” Betty, 32, says of her classic wedding to Robert, 35, on February 15, 2014. The couple based their theme around a quote: “Two hearts, one soul.”

“We are true soul mates,” says the bride. “We had a very strong connection from the beginning.” The Melbourne pair had a church ceremony and celebrated at Witchmount Winery Estate with 170 guests. “We got married at St Nicholas Orthodox Church with a Catholic blessing to honour Robert’s family at St Christopher’s,” describes Betty.

Fitting with Valentine’s Day, the pair focused on romance for the reception décor, including love quotes around the room. “On the bridal table I took a moment and looked around at all our guests and the venue. I would not change a thing — it was perfect,” smiles Betty.

The couple honeymooned in Mauritius.
