THE FIRST MEETING

Sari and Mark met the old school way, outside Borche, Vodka, Tears (a bar in South Yarra, Melbourne). No tinder, no bumble - we almost don’t know what to do with this answer.

I was walking past with my girlfriends and Mark was out the front having a drink and he just said hi.
— Sari La Roque Ferrari

DRESS & VEIL

Sari came into ODB determined to try on the ‘Gilmore skirt and bodysuit set’. Whilst Sari said she had a lot of fun trying on other beautiful gowns, but nothing could match the feeling she had in the Gilmore set; effortless yet with a sophisticated edge that she felt comfortable in.

HOW WAS YOUR EXPERIENCE WITH YOUR STYLIST?

Adrianna became my new best friend, she was the ultimate wing-woman with trusted and honest advice, nothing was too hard and she helped make the experience really special.

BEST ADVICE YOU WERE GIVEN BEFORE YOUR WEDDING?

I’m sure every bride gets told to ‘take it all in’- so we did, not once but at any opportunity we could.

We saw how truly beautiful it everything was; not just the setting but that everyone was here to celebrate us and love. You don’t get these opportunities if you sweat the small stuff so remember to smile, don’t over think and you’ll realise it really does become the best day of your life.

Photographer?

@Katie_harmsworth Katie Harmsworth, I just knew I had to have her and felt pretty honoured that we did. She is a true professional but has a way of making us feel comfortable and laugh along the way.   

Our original photo location; Spray Point (where Mark proposed) was sadly hosting a memorial on that day and we had to on the spot think of a new location to shoot which was even better than the first.

Videographer?

DEO: TANGO Films- Lochy and Jay what a duo!

HAIR?

Renee Camilleri- it was super windy by the beach and I didn’t need to fix my hair once

MAKE UP?

Danielle Gardiner – my go to for any occasion and someone you definitely want the morning of your wedding

SHOES?

I had a pair of stand-out earrings from Sable + Dixie so opted for a subtle nude pair of Zoe Wittner shoes that also didn’t take away from my dress.

MAID OF HONOUR DRESS?

One Fell Swoop

FLOWERS?

Badlands and Co- I’ve always loved blue hues, minimal greenery and abstract in design

CAKE?

No cake on the night but an custom ice cream cake for the recovery (we always get each other silly ice cream cakes for our birthdays) – instead on the night we had a cheese trolley, a Negroni bar and roving desserts

BAND OR DJ?  

From VERVE Agency- Maya (on vocals) Harry (sax) and Sean (DJ) we had cocktail hour with Café del Mar vibes and then dancing well into the night… well morning!
