Tammin Sursok's Romantic Italian Wedding

Until i opened this weeks edition of Woman's Day magazine I had no idea who Tammin Sursok was (sorry, i don't watch soapies). I soon discovered that Tammin is a stunning, 28 year old Australian actress who stars in the US series Pretty Little Liars and The Young And The Restless. More importantly, this pretty little thing recently married the love of her life, director Sean McEwen.

I think it speaks volumes that so many celebrities choose to marry in Italy, which is exactly where this picture-perfect couple chose to wed. Set over three days, Tammin planned her magical nuptials in the romantic Italian city of Florence. For a small group of family and friends the couple hosted a series of dinners, cocktail parties and elegant breakfasts for their wedding celebrations.

Tammin looked like a doll in a lace bodiced, tulle skirt, Vera Wang gown, that she jokes "was more suited to a wedding of 200 people than their private ceremony of only 35". But proving my own sentiment, that every modern bride should wear two gowns, Tammin changed into a chantilly lace, Monique Lhuillier short dress to dance the bridal waltz to Steven Curtis Chapman's 'I will be there'.

As newly declared 'man and wife' the couple sat with their guests at one long table, surrounded by 150 votive candles, lanterns and a killer view of the city. Just to make sure they won't forget their wedding day in a hurry, the happy couple bought a puppy that they named Valentina, in honour of their Italian nuptials. Aaaahhhhh ... now this is La Dolce Vita !!

Glamorous Big Brisbane Greek Wedding

Brisbane's coffee king John Lazarou was completely buzzing recently... and it wasn't from too many espressos. In June, he joyfully walked his daughter Krysti, down the aisle as she married her beau Nick. What captured my eyes in this wedding was the divine cathedral, antique French lace veil. Something that her wedding dress designer and friend, Kerry Xynias, found whilst working in bridal couture in London. I am seriously envious over it. After filling the aisle with her spectacular veil, the newlyweds and guests headed to The Grand Ballroom at The Sofitel to dance the night away. This is really one glamorous big fat Greek wedding. Congratulations to the Lazarou family!
