MONIQUE & DENNIS

Can we talk about ‘next level’ weddings?

Monique & Dennis’ wedding day started with a vibrant Traditional Chinese tea ceremony hosted by Dennis and his family. Congratulatory messages and heartfelt wishes were shared by family members, wishing them health and prosperity for future.

WHAT THEY SAID

“It was an absolute pleasure having Daniel & Alexandra capture our wedding day. The fantastic duo were so easy going, professional and made us feel very relaxed and comfortable which was also important. We just received our photos (so quickly too- within 2 weeks) and we are absolutely blown away!! The photos are so organic yet elegant and beautiful!! Would highly recommend!!”

THE CEREMONY

Their ceremony took place in the breathtaking St Josephs Church, the perfect location for a wedding in the suburbs of Sydney. The portrait time following the ceremony was high energy, smoke bombs and fun happy vibes.

The Proposal

“Last night, the most wonderful surprise got me feeling exhilarated and overwhelmed in equal measures. After 6 sweet years, under the captured stars and super moon (twilight and balloon) magic happened when my dream man asked me to be his forever. Dennis you are an incredible human whose generous love, creativity, passion and kindness are unprevailed, I am so lucky to call you mine. You make my heart happy and this love is everything to me. I will always live, laugh, explore and dream with you, and with all my heart, YES!!”

their story

“We both met in USYD while studying pharmacy, then because we love eating ice-cream- opened up a liquid nitrogen catering company called FU NITRO as a side hustle. Currently we are Pharmacists by day and fried chicken connoisseurs by night as we now own and operate a Fried Chicken food truck called DIRTY BIRD on the weekend . Kicking goals together since 2010”

The reception

The 600 guest reception was where the party really started.

This wedding extravaganza had all the elements a real party should – Champagne tower, pyrotechnics, signature cocktail tins with customised cocktail tin labels of MON-TINNY (martini) and DE-GRONI (Negroni) and a Messina Gelato Bar.… Then there’s the secret activities organised by Monique’s cousin including a dance troupe and an Elvis performance!

THE PARTY

Nothing was missed and most things were customised to represent Monique & Dennis’ love perfectly. Their wedding invitation was an A3 fold out card illustrated with their love story. Their wedding crest, a water colour painting which was transferred as a decal onto the glossy white dance floor took breaths away. And their first dance – Boom! One hell of a first dance into marriage!
