Stephanie • A One Day Bride
Married on the historical grounds of Werribee Mansion Stephanie and Nicholas created a beautifully classic wedding to celebrate their love for each other. Wearing our Stella wedding gown and sheath veil, Stephanie knew One Day Bridal had to make her wedding dress and we absolutely loved working with her.
BRIDE… Stephanie Sarros
GROOM… Nicholas Griffiths
WEDDING DATE… 5th Dec 15
WHEN AND HOW WE MET
We have known each other for about ten years, but we got together about three years ago at the races on Derby day and have been inseparable ever since.
OUR WEDDING LOCATION
Our wedding reception was held at a site called ‘The Marquee’ of the Werribee Mansion and the ceremony was held in the gardens of Werribee Mansion, the spot was called ‘Bunya Bunya’. The reason we chose this venue was because of the beautiful mansion itself, we just knew that this was the back drop for our wedding we wanted, the beautiful traditional architecture.
Our wedding style was classical and elegant. Our neutral colour pallet achieved this with white flowers surrounded by foliage, beautiful and classical. We had no stylist, it was mainly myself and with the help of my mum and my two sisters.
THE BEST ADVICE I WAS GIVEN
Not to worry about getting around to every guest to say hi and to have chats, enjoy your wedding and take every bit inn.
WHAT WAS YOUR NON NEGOTIABLE FOR THE DAY?
We had to have Purple Ribbon videographer at our wedding day!! And I wanted a lot of flowers throughout my wedding day. I didn’t want to take short cuts.
My sisters organised a cocktail party at my mum’s house followed by a party bus that took us to Bond bar for some more dancing.
