Ben & Fleur

I came to Sydney on a work secondment at the beginning of 2013 with the strong intention that I was going to fall in love. Three weeks later, I met Ben. As fate would have it, the opportunity arose and moved from Melbourne to Sydney 9 months later. Ben proposed to me at Maroubra Beach on the first day of Autumn 2016. We were married at Zest Waterfront Venues at Point Piper on 10 March 2017 – being the first day that didn’t rain that week!


The wedding was a fusion of all the things we loved – sharing of food, cultures (Russian, Jewish, Australian), vodka, and music. A truly international affair, as we had people from all over the world and Australia join us on our magic day.

The dress was the first one I tried on in a store in Melbourne, and 25 dresses later, it was clearly still the winner. I was stoked to find Abbey Bridal as the stockist. I love that everyone thought the dress was so perfectly me. And it was.

This really was the greatest day of our lives – thus far.
