Arielle & Paulo

Like most girls, Arielle wanted to like to feel special when those special days arise and she was expecting that Paulo would make somewhat of a big deal about both her Uni graduation and birthday, especially as they were just a week apart. Arielle was shocked and frustrated that Paulo didn’t make any effort on either occasion, who wants to plan their own celebrations? Little did she know Paulo was planning the biggest surprise of her life. Paulo took her to a “last minute” dinner and as they walked to their table Arielle was completely surprised by huge lit-up letters spelling out “MARRY ME”. She immediately freaked out, and apologised to Paulo for being mean about his lack of celebrating all before he got on one knee and asked her to be his wife

Even though it absolutely poured with rain on the day and all of the beautiful outdoor plans had to be cancelled, Arielle and Paulo still describe their wedding day as “everything we wanted and more!”
They ended up loving the indoor ceremony and pre reception more than what they had originally planned and found that their photos were even more beautiful with the grey skies and immaculate lighting really adding to their theme.

When looking for the perfect venue Arielle and Paulo wanted to find a mix of rustic and modern which Arielle found hard to explain but knew she had found it when they first laid eyes on the Wisteria Room at Centennial Homestead. Not only was it the perfect look, Centennial Homestead had just the right capacity for their guests and are known Sydney wide for great service and food!

“We loved how quickly our team was to turn our plan b ceremony into a dream with a lesser amount of time we planned, moving the chairs, squeezing things inside to fit but still creating a space where our guests felt comfortable and were wowed!”
