Elegant & Simple Real Life Wedding

Tara & Zo Nunes • 11th April, 2009 • Elegant & Simple • Canberra 

Tara and Zo celebrated their wedding in simple style and absolute elegance! Fusion Photography captured all the details of a wonderful day filled with love. Tara shares her wedding story with us...


For our wedding, we decided on a simple but elegant theme and used navy, white and silver to tie our decorative elements together. The date we picked was Easter Saturday, and with an 11:00am ceremony, we had a very early start to the day. I was so excited that I didn’t sleep a wink on Friday night.
My dress was a classic style in white silk dupion with a sweetheart neckline, ruching across the bodice, and gorgeous crystal buttons down the back. I had a cathedral length veil with a fingertip layer.

We chose Gold Creek Chapel for our ceremony. Our celebrant was a friend of Zo’s family, my cousin played the flute during the ceremony, Zo’s mum and my godfather did the readings, and both my parents walked me down the aisle. It was a family affair!

We gave each of our guests a bomboniere box tied with ribbon. The ribbon was fastened onto the box with a personalised wax seal that featured our initials. Guests were then invited to fill their boxes at the lolly buffet we had set up. The selection included Easter eggs and five kilos of M&Ms that had our photo printed on them. Zo’s Dad and step-mother sent these over from the US and they were the first to go.


Our cake was beautiful but simple, and our first dance as a married couple was to Jason Mraz’s “I’m Yours”. Willy (our celebrant) and his wife teach dancing, so they helped us to create a short routine that was a real crowd pleaser.
