Couple Real Weddings

Real Wedding: Sandra and Daniel

  | 

The beautiful nuptials of Sandra Portelli and Daniel Acton were the epitome of classical elegance. Their celebration featured beautiful florals, shades of blush pink and just the right amount of sparkle. They originally met on an agricultural field trip in Emerald, so it was only fitting that one of their photo locations included a typical Australian property. It was simply beautiful.

QB: Tell us about the proposal…

Daniel took me out to dinner at a little Italian restaurant one Tuesday night. He got down on one knee and asked the question. The owner of the restaurant then brought out a beautiful bunch of pink roses.

QB: Do you have any advice for other brides-to-be?

A lot of people will tell how how you “should” do things, but be true to yourself and it will be a beautiful day that you will love.
