Jade & leon
Jade Mintern, 31, paramedic, and Leon Stagliano, 36, account manager.
Jade and Leon said ‘I do’ on the deck of Sandbar Beach Cafe in Middle Park, backdropped by stunning views of Port Phillip Bay.
Jade wore a strapless white lace Lisa Ho gown with exposed cups and bodice. She became attached to the dress, literally, while trying it on and had to be cut out of the gown in-store by Lisa Ho herself!
Jade’s grandmother’s favourite broach was attached to her full-length veil and she kept the accessories simple with large chandelier earrings, a gold bangle and a family heirloom ring.
Leon sourced his colourful outfit from Calibre. His custom-made slippers from the UK were monogrammed with his initials on one shoe and a stag’s head (his nickname is Stag) on the other.
Wanting to have her two brothers by her side, Jade ditched the bridesmaid tradition and instead opted for two ‘brides-men’.
The couple hired a photobooth to capture all the cheeky moments of the reception. The night continued in typical ‘Jade and Leon’ style with an after-party that lasted until the sun came up.
