Alison & Sam: A Purple Garden Wedding in Parramatta, NSW
Alison and Sam first met when Sam transferred to Alison’s high school. He was friends with some of her friends but when her classmates wouldn’t stop talking about him coming, she started to find herself less than thrilled to meet this stranger. “But once I saw him walking across the quad it was love at first sight,” says Alison.
The bride: Alison Curnovic, 30, wedding stylist at Visually Creative
The groom: Sam Rahal, 30, printer
The date: 22 January
The day of the proposal started with a beautiful seafood dinner at Coogee Beach, followed by a wander to a nearby café for coffee and cannoli’s (Sam knew too well that Alison is a sucker for sweets!). They took their dessert down to the beach, and by chance fireworks began lighting up the sky in the background. It was then that Sam proposed!
