The Wedding dress
"Sweetheart bodice with Elie Saab lace overlay, soft, romantic, tulle skirt. Made by Norma Bridal Couture."
"2 shades of grey, so 3 in a lighter colour silver & 2 in dark charcoal. All different styles as all different bodyshapes. 2 had strapless style, 2 had 1 shoulder style, 1 had sheer covering over shoulders. The bridesmaids chose their gown my only pre –requisite were that they were long. All girls wore matching pearls."
"Lace envelope with a cream paper insert. I tried to have as much lace as I could, throughout the wedding."
"My fantastic florist Lina & Chanele Rose chose the exact flowers – I just gave her a brief, i wanted pastel colours, tight bouquets, my bouquet wrapped in pearls with the bridesmaids having a brooch on each of theirs."
"Traditional Serbian Orthodox ceremony, I was walked in by my father & the best man, the best man’s job is to protect me & deliver me safely to my husband who is waiting at the altar. The most special moment is where we were crowned each other’s King & Queen & our hands are bound in traditional cloth to tie us together for life."
"Our reception was a mix of Serbian music & classic hits. Having waited 6 years for a proposal, Etta James At Last was our bridal waltz. We did have a Same Day Edit, where I had recorded the backing track Christina Perri’s A Thousand Years. I surprised Marko when the Same Day Edit started to play & told him it was me singing. I had hand made a vintage treasure chest for people to leave their wedding cards in. Decorated with lace."
"Fresh Flowers & candles along my bridal table, babies breath for all tables, with candles. Simple & Classic."
"Beautiful little bars of chocolate wrapped in lace & pearls with matching candles for my bridal party."
"Classic Wedding White with a Mr & Mrs Strbac silhouette cake topper."
