Amanda and Anthony met during high school, but it wasn’t until over ten years later that romance sparked. A date at one of their favourite restaurants in North Bondi and a walk down Ben Bucklers Point led to a very surprised Amanda. “He got down on bended knee and proposed with a beautiful ring he designed himself,” said Amanda. With a classic and elegant wedding theme in mind they decided on the Ivy Ballroom to cater for their 380 guests. Black, ivory and gold were used to decorate the space, with the use of candles and soft lighting to create the ambience they envisaged. The lead up to the wedding was very special for Amanda, putting her work as a designer into action. She partnered with Steven Khalil to bring her dream dress to life. The couple celebrated both family traditions with a catholic and orthodox service followed by an entertaining reception. Amanda also surprising Anthony with a live singer for their first dance with a compilation of songs including ‘The way you make me feel’ – Michael Jackson, ‘Mirrors’ – Justin Timberlake and ‘Young & Beautiful’ – Lana Del Ray.
