With art deco inspirations and the moody Movida Aqui as backdrop, Nile and Stefania’s Melbourne wedding is one we’ll remember. They planned it in just six months to make sure Stefania’s unwell father could attend, so to see him looking ridiculously happy in these snaps by It’s Beautiful Here made for some very specials memories.
Both lawyers, the pair met while working for the same firm but Stefania took some convincing before she agreed to go on a date with Nile. His persistence obviously paid off and he proposed at their fave Gertrude St bar, The Everleigh where they returned post-ceremony for a few celebratory cocktails as newlyweds.
A church wedding was always important to Stefania, particularly because it would mean a lot to her dad, so the pair settled on Nile’s old high-school stomping ground at the Xavier College Memorial Chapel. With it’s stained glass windows and hilltop location, they let the beautiful domed church speak for itself, before heading to Movida Aqui for the party. “We had decided that the thing we wanted most out of our wedding was to throw an exceptional party for all our loved ones,” says Stefania.
