ALICIA & LAWRENCE HOW & WHERE DID YOUR LOVE MEET?
Both Alicia & Lawrence spent their childhood growing up in China, yet in different cities. Lawrence moved to Sydney with his family at the age of 16. At the same age, Alicia made the bravest decision of her life and traveled half way around the world to Sydney to embark on an adventure of her own. Coincidentally, the couple attended the same senior high school and didn’t know each other, yet reconnected at University.
DESCRIBE THE MARRIAGE PROPOSAL
Lawrence spent a whole day decorating the couple’s apartment – the entire place was full of rose petals, candles, with fairy lights draping from the ceiling. Everywhere you would look, there were photos of the couple. As the big question was being asked, Lawrence was holding an enormous bouquet of red roses – 99 to be exact. As Alicia walked down the aisle of candles, down on one knee, waiting for Alicia, was the love of her life, to him asking her “Will you marry me”. Alicia resounded a colossal YES, and so it was decided they would spend the rest of their lives together – a magical moment that will last forever.
DESCRIBE THE WEDDING THEME.
The colour palette for the wedding included an all-time-favourite, the graceful gold complemented by soft blush tones and whites. Alicia’s Bridal Gown was a champagne colour featuring gold threads on ivory lace. It was ensured the styling of the event followed the colour palette, which filtered through as many elements, including the centre pieces, Laduree macarons, invitations, menus and crockery. To add an extra touch, the bridal party’s table was complemented by a lavish flower wall full of ivory hydrangeas, white orchids and blush roses.
FAVOURITE MOMENT OF THE WEDDING?
Alicia’s personal favourite was walking down the aisle and seeing Lawrence waiting underneath the arbor, it was exactly how she had imagined. To Alicia, that moment was frozen just for the two of them. During this moment Alicia explains “all of sudden I had flashbacks about the first time we met, the day he proposed, and all the happy memories we shared together”. Before Alicia knew it, she was saying “I Do” to her husband.
ADVICE TO FUTURE BRIDES & GROOMS?
Alicia says having a professional wedding planner to help you organise the best day of your life is the best advice she could give. Planning a dream wedding of your own is a challenging yet enjoyable journey. Alicia went on to say “without the help from my wedding planner Fiona Deans-Dundas from Couture Wedding Planning, our wedding day would not have been as perfect as we could possibly imagine”.
