Polka Dot Bride reader Maryanne sent in the photos she and her brother took at her recent engagement party in Casula New South Wales! Maryanne and Peter have known each other for 11 years and dated for five. They recently got engaged and celebrated together with a big party!
Peter proposed in November 20o8 and the couple are planning to marry in September next year!
There’s a sense of family, love and laughter in these photos which was evident through Maryanne’s words to me. So I wanted to share with you a lovely relaxed Saturday post!
Maryanne and Peter have their rings blessed in a traditional Orthodox religious ceremony
Maryanne and Peter don’t have many family members so invited a lot of their friends – ranging from university friends, work colleagues and even school friends!
Half of the food was catered while Maryanne’s mother, friends and Peter’s mother made the rest. The biggest hit was the punch, christened Changia- a champagne version of Sangria.
Maryanne, her friends and her future sister in law stayed up late the night before the party making cupcakes. The cake the couple cut was made by Celebration Cakes.
There was plenty of dancing to end the night!So much fun! Thank you for sharing Maryanne! We wish you and Peter a peaceful lead up to your wedding!
How did you celebrate your engagement?
