To celebrate their seventh anniversary together Harris planned a romantic dinner at Aria, Circular Quay. A walk along the Opera House followed which was the perfect location for Harris to pop the question. “He was his normal self, no nerves at all, so I had absolutely no idea he was about to do anything of the sort. It was just perfect, and the ring was just breathtaking” said Cristina.
From the beginning they were set on a vintage theme consisting of dusty pink, ivory and hints of glitter, which matched beautifully with the bridesmaids dresses. Cristina looked stunning in a timeless gown created by well-known Australian designer Steven Khalil, featuring intricate beading, ruffles and full-length sleeves. They were married at St Gerasimos Greek Orthodox Church and celebrated at Curzon Hall with their 320 guests. The reception was decorated with floral arrangements, candelabra and hanging tea lights. “A vintage touch I added to the day was having framed photos of both our parents and grandparents on their wedding days” said Cristina. When asked about advice for other Brides, Cristina said, “Stay calm and remember to enjoy the journey, and not worry about the small things. It’s your time, make it count.”
