ROCHELLE & MICHAEL
Michael Chiarelli or baaaaaaaaabe as I like to call him ;)
Ceremony was Elizabeth Beach, and Reception was Pacific Palms Surf Club. This is all in the Pacific Palms area which is 3.5hrs north of Sydney.
Who created your gorgeous gown?
My gown was from Babushka Ballerina in Sydney. It's a top and skirt and was exactly what I was after!
What is one word that would best describe your wedding?
It really was the happiest day of our lives! I've never smiled THAT MUCH and for that long of a period of time!! At one point during the speeches I started to get a headache at the back of my ears from smiling and laughing so much!!!!
What is the most amazing thing about your man?
The most amazing thing about Michael is that although he's not known to be a huge talker (whereas I am!!), I've never questioned his love for me and never questioned that he'll always look after me and be on my team. He has so many unexpected qualities which I get to see every single day and that's what I love about him.
What was the most challenging part of organising a wedding?
Any funny moments?
I could seriously go on - I felt like I was just smiling and laughing the whole night!!!
What was your aisle song?
I love you always forever by Donna Lewis - sang and performed acoustically by local singer Aqwa which was really special.
What is one scene in the wedding that will forever be in your memory?
The look on Michael's face when I first saw him as I walked down the isle. I could see him trying to hold back the tears and it was a really proud moment in my life seeing him stand there looking so handsome and wonderful ready to marry ME!!! And just walking down the isle knowing every single person was there for us and to celebrate our love - that was a really amazing feeling.
How was your experience as a Forever Soles bride?
It was such a lovely touch to have these incredible jewels on my feet - they were so so beautiful!! They tied it in so well being a barefoot wedding and really finished the outfit. My only regret is taking them off!! I wanted to wear them all night and I should have instead of changing into heels which gave me blisters (not from Forever Soles of course)! I want to find another excuse to wear them because they really are so beautiful!
