Rosy & Damian

Rosy and Damian’s wedding (captured by Kirralee Ashworth) is such a beautiful combination of beautiful Spring inspired stationery, bright floral arrangements and all the classic tradition of a Church ceremony.

How did they come to be? The story goes like this. “Damian and Rosy’s eyes first met across the dance floor in a crowded bar and this became a weekly chance to get a sneak peek at each other, until finally they exchanged words instead of glances and never looked back.”

Rosy, a graphic designer, created the stationery herself using bold flower patterns and black and white photographs.

Rosy wore a lace gown by Angela Manno from Baccini & Hill.


Helen Dillon created the floral arrangements for the day.

Rosy and Damian married at St John the Baptist Church in Clifton Hill.

Rosy chose traditional for her walk down the aisle, remembering, “This part of the wedding ceremony was kept traditional as we selected Pachelbel’s Canon in D Major played live on the piano. Other songs throughout the ceremony included some of our favourite artists such as Coldplay, Savage Garden and Lionel Ritchie ”

“Something we will always remember is how it felt to walk out of our church as husband and wife. We kept smiling and laughing with one another, completely happy in the moment, there is just no feeling like it.”

Of their photographer, Rosy remarks, “Kirralee Ashworth is the most creative, positive and supportive person. Her level of innovation is clear through her amazing photography. She greets everything with a smile and made the whole process of engagement and wedding photography something fun and enjoyable. We were lucky to have found Kirralee as she made our special day even more memorable than we could have ever imagined.”

Rosy and Damian celebrated with their guests at Leonda by the Yarra , Rosy remembering, “Leonda by the Yarra is a beautiful modern white space with a complete glass wall showcasing large trees growing over the Yarra River. It is adorned with a long marble bar and endless down lights and the space allowed for the perfect opportunity of pre-dinner drinks following a sit down dinner for guests. Leonda really shone with the inclusion of our bright flower arrangements, large cascading white sphere lighting all brought together by small festoon fairy lights. It was like a indoor garden party beneath the stars.”

Rosy’s spring inspired stationery continued through the reception. “Being a graphic designer I was looking forward to creating some special details. These included personalised tags for each guest (attached to a pin board for them to see upon arrival), signage throughout the venue, personalised menus, place cards and a wooden MR & MRS sign for the bridal table just to mention a few.”

Guests received macaron favors from Le Belle Miette and enjoyed wedding cake by Michelle Negri.

The reception decor was bright and beautiful, Rosy remarking, “We had the opportunity to adorn the venue with countless bunches of colourful flowers which had the same colours as the pattern featured in our invitations. Numerous vases were placed within the venue adopting a modern and country feel with some vases made with wooden cylinders and others from glass or white metal. Candles both in small tea-light spheres and in glass balls suspended by fishing wire complemented the flowers as did the large cascading white sphere lighting and strings of small festoon fairy lights suspended from the ceiling.”

The newlyweds chose an old favourite for their first dance song, Rosy explaining, “When we first met, Damian and I always loved dancing together so we selected a song that reminded us of this time, James Morrison’s You Make It Real. We practiced dancing a few times in our living room in the week leading up to the wedding and on the night it was a romantic moment where as the beat quickened we included a couple of un-rehearsed spins which made us both erupt in laughter.”

Signed, Sealed, Delivered kept guests on the dance floor.
