Summer Place, Hyde Park Wedding | A + G by Amanda Custo

When an Italian and a Lebanese family come together, the result is one beautiful and boisterous explosion of music, food and festivity!

This was the epitome of Greg and Arianna's wedding day - centred around family, friends, love and just being alive.

We enjoyed every single moment of this wonderful day, starting out Greg's house (brought back such good memories...it feels like just yesterday that I shot Greg's sister Stephanie's getting-ready photos there, as well as their engagement party).

Arianna got ready at the reception venue, Summer Place, Hyde Park and the ceremony took place at the Our Lady Of Cedars Woodmead church.

The day couldn't have been more perfect and the reception styling was the stuff made of fairytales, created by Wally and team Gideon's Flowers & Functions and coordinated by Michelle of Finer Details Events Management cc.

Arianna & Greg - you two are a magnificent pair! Your love and zest for life is tangible and we wish you a lifetime of love and laughter in a colourful mix of Italian, English and Arabic...

Lots of love,

The ESTILO Team

Castello di Monte Wedding | D + A by Amanda Custo

I think somewhere during the reception, sitting in a forest of flowers and foliage, my husband and I looked at each other, in complete awe, and thought "Is this really our wedding?"

It is impossible to describe the joy, excitement, happiness and sheer gratitude that we felt on our wedding day. Towards friends and family members that put in immeasurable amounts of hard work and dedication to turn our dream into a reality. And far surpassing even our wildest fantasies of our perfect wedding day.

Here are a just a handful of images (actually even these 150 pictures are just a handful, as Gosia and Rynali took over 2000 images!) that depict the day and capture the essence of what we felt. Thank you so much to the following colleagues that have become friends over the years of working together. We will never forget you as you were part of the beginning of our story together.

Lots of Love,
Amanda & Don

Sorrento, Italy Wedding: Sabrina + Agnello by Amanda Custo

To say that we'd been looking forward to Sabrina & Agnello's wedding in Italy is just a horrible understatement...we were counting down a year, then months and then finally it was just a few weeks away...

Sometimes, when your expectations of a place are so overwhelming, it very often turns out to be disappointing when one actually gets there. Take Paris, for example - there is so much excitement...one dreams, conjures, pictures seeing the Eiffel tower, the Louvre, the Arc de Triomphe for the first time (no pressure Paris!). Sometimes the expectations are met and other times it is less than expected, or just different.

Our expectations and experience of Sorrento? Unequalled! The food, the people, the atmosphere. It was what we dreamed and so much more. Sabrina and Agnello's wedding topped off our time on the Amalfi coast and I think everyone involved felt that this was something so incredibly special and a once-in-a-lifetime. If only time could be stopped we would have that beautiful Saturday afternoon, a vision of a regal-looking bride, a breathtaking cathedral, palace venue against the coastal cliffs and a feast fit for a king over and over again...
