Giulia & Ben
As seen in Geelong Wedding Guide Magazine
Sometimes the purest, most romantic love stories start with a blossoming friendship – a true partnership in every sense. For Giulia and Ben, their love story began against the humble backdrop of their workplace, navigating their instant connection as co-workers first.
Ben found Giulia kind-hearted and willing to do anything to help her friends. Giulia remembers Ben as very friendly and sociable and always up for a chat. When their fellow co-workers noticed the vibe between the two, they helped them along with a gentle nudge.
The pair quickly grew close and within a few months, it was official. They had found in each other a best friend, a soul mate, someone they could giggle at Brooklyn 99 with or head out and catch a wave with. Drawing others into their instant connection, Giulia and Ben have built a life with friends and family that adore seeing their love shine. They have endless fun together, trying new things and even rocking out together in the car with a few karaoke sessions or two – now that’s true love!
Giulia and Ben can completely be themselves around each other, embracing their quirks and eccentricities, and loving each other even more because of them.
Pure joy. That’s what Giulia and Ben’s wedding day was. A perfect combination of true love, an amazing venue bought to life by incredible vendors, and the personal touches of the couple’s personalities.
Bringing fun into their wedding ceremony, Giulia and Ben decided to flip a hockey puck to decide who would say their vows first – nothing like a bit of competition to calm your nerves! What they didn’t bet on though was the skills of their best man, nailing a flip where the puck landed on its side. There’s just something about weddings that bring out talents you never knew you had!
Creating the perfect vibe for their reception, the couple enlisted the help of Ela Rose Studios to choreograph an epic first dance and left the room in tears when Giulia invited her father to join her in a special father-daughter dance.
Giulia and Ben’s wedding day is a day they will forever share as a celebration of the love they have for each other, perfectly encapsulating the life they have created with their nearest and dearest.
