Matt and Melissa were married Valentine’s Day Eve on the Elwood Pier. Their wedding was the perfect mix of casual and intimate with Melissa describing it as "a massive party with our family and closest friends.” Their day was made even more special with their two gorgeous kids by their side, Chanel as their flower girl and Leonardo as their pageboy.

Melissa organised a surprise for Matt on the wedding morning which was beautifully captured by the photographer. Melissa had a custom pin made in England which featured a number of charms including photo frames filled with images of his grandparents, a cross and a heart which was engraved with their initials and wedding date on the back. “It was such a sentimental moment for him” said Melissa.

The reception was full of love and happiness as they celebrated together. Another special moment for them was when their daughter Chanel did a speech which she came up with on the spot. After a night of dancing, loads of fun and laughter the night ended with a glow-stick sendoff before they headed back to Crown Towers where Matt had organised for the room to be decorated with an abundance of rose petals, chocolates and champagne. "It was an unforgettable day and night!"
