Danijela and Alan

How did you get engaged?

After 8 years of dating, Alan surprised me with an overnight stay in the city, only to wake me up at midnight to propose to me on Christmas Day!

Why did you select your rings?

Alan surprised me with my beautiful halo cushion cut diamond engagement ring (made by Arman’s fine Jewellery) which I absolutely love! Arman also created our beautiful wedding bands for the day. 

Where was your dress from and why did you choose it?

I wanted a classic yet effortless look for my bridal dress and fell in love with Rachel Gilbert’s ‘Andie Bridal Gown’.

 Who did your Hair & Make-up?

My bridal hair was done by the beautiful Sarah Habib and make up by the beautiful Joumana Wahhab.

 Did you have live music during your wedding?

We did - SaxoJohnny from Cdarz Entertainment. We wanted to incorporate live music for the ceremony and during canapés for our guests.

What was important to you in regard to the styling and flower arrangements?

The most important thing to Alan and I on the day regarding styling was to ensure that we complimented the beauty of Park Hyatt Sydney and it’s unbelievably stunning backdrop! (It was an absolute bonus, Vivid was also on!) With the help of our suppliers, styling the ‘Guest House’ and adjoining terrace was a joy! I envisioned a romantic setting filled with lots of flowers and candles - and we couldn’t have been happier!

Who was your photographer?

Our photographer on the day was Ryan Schembri. 

 Which were your most memorable moments?

Til this day, our wedding day is one of our greatest memories not only to us but our families.  Getting married on exactly our 10 year anniversary was an absolutely dream! From the moment we started planning our wedding, having the support from Park Hyatt and the wonderful wonderful Lisa Koenig (Events Executive) - no request was impossible. We had luck on our side that day, with beautiful weather allowing us to have our ceremony on the adjoining terrace of the Guest Room overlooking the Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge, to the amazing food and service received on the night - that still to this day, has our guests talking and of course the wonderful staff who made the night go by like a breeze!

What extra special bits were organised for the big day? 

Having family and friends flying in from overseas was the icing on the cake for us.

What were the most memorable moments? 

All of it; the ceremony in the park was just perfect and the reception was so beautiful, it was amazing to walk in and see everything we had been arranging with such attention to detail to make it look perfect.

Where was your honeymoon? 

It’s going to be a delayed honeymoon, but back to the UK and Ireland for Christmas and then a well deserved rest in Singapore on the way back. Looking forward to it!
