We were thrilled to have the sweetest couple Thi & Raph who tied the knot with us at Bursaria Abbotsford Convent early in the year featured as one of Ivory Tribe’s real wedding editorials.

Here is a snippet of their breathtaking day and you can read more at https://ivorytribe.com.au/real-wedding-thi-raph-abbotsford-vic/

In Thi’s words…

The ‘one’.

He is patient, loving and forgiving!

The proposal.

Re-lived our first date. Dinner at South Wharf, gelato at St Kilda pier, and then he proposed!

Style inspiration.

Relaxed, rustic, fun.

The gown.

Simple yet elegant, fitted. I did not intend to wear gold on the day although when I saw the dress, I knew it was ‘the one’. Purchased it online via BHLDN.
