On the 16th of May 2017 Jimmy and Lisa Magafas tied the knot in a beautiful autumn ceremony. The wedding was held 7 years exactly after Jimmy and Lisa went on their first date after being set up by Lisa’s best friend.
The ceremony was held at the Chapel Hill Retreat in Berambing, New South Wales. A sprawling country estate of 35 acres, the venue’s blooming autumn colours created a picturesque backdrop for the couple. The site overlooks the exquisite Blue Mountain Valley, lush with bushland and greenery, which creates a scenic nature setting. The pair held their ceremony in the location’s “Bush Cathedral”, their union perfectly framed by the building’s stunning and colourful stained-glass window. The small yet spectacular chapel was the perfect venue for Lia and Jimmy to hold their intimate wedding.
Lisa looked gorgeous in the Allure Romance 2864 Gown, purchased from Ferrari Formalwear & Bridal store in Wollongong, New South Wales. The gown, made from lace and tulle, features a softly scooped sweetheart neckline with intricate lace detailing on the back. Its mermaid silhouette and chapel length train combined with her elegant veil made Lisa look like a traditional bride with a modern twist.
Lisa’s hair and makeup was stylish and sophisticated, her fabulous up-do done by Nicole Lautier Hair, and makeup done by Sarah Anne Cocking. Lisa’s choice of a colourful yet minimalist bouquet was the perfect fit for the vibrant location with its beautiful autumn colour palette.
Lisa said that it was the best day of their lives, and we at Ferrari Formalwear & Bridal wish all them the best for the days to come.
