Marina was among some of Melbourne’s luckiest brides, tying the knot right before Melbourne’s lockdown 4.0. The You and Me Podcast is the ultimate podcast for all things bridal, hosted by the wonderful Andie from The Bridal Journey & Laura from Wanderlust Creative. The ladies get to know Marina and her whole bridal journey from proposal until I Do. Listen to the podcast for free here, or keep reading as we delve into our Metropolis Brides love story.
Marina and her now husband, Carl, first met on Facebook about 6 years ago. It started as a slow burn but after roughly 6 months they had made things official. Their proposal was nothing but a dream, the couple were on a sailing tour around the picturesque Malta when Carl popped the question at sunset. This proposal however, didn’t go without a scare when their luggage became lost with the engagement ring inside.
Carl and Marina were quick off the bat when securing us as their dream venue back in November of 2019 for May 2021. Straight into wedding planning, Marina used our wonderful planners at Metropolis Events to help curate the most stunning wedding reception, from mood boards to contacting suppliers, there was no detail overlooked in the making of their dream day.
Soon into the wedding planning Marina secured her dress designer, Oglia Loro Couture. Her simply stunning custom piece was to die for – refer to images below. The gown effortlessly created the illusion of a second dress as the sleeves were detached for the reception.
One piece of advice Marina would give to any future brides, would be to align yourself and your wedding day with trustworthy suppliers it will make a huge difference and help streamline your day, and all we have to say is… Amen sister, we couldn’t agree more!
Marina Magri Testimonial
‘There is nowhere else we could imagine celebrating our big day! Not only is Metropolis so stunning, the staff and support we had, not only in the lead up, but also on the day was incredible. It was tricky at times to navigate planning a wedding during COVID, however we never felt alone in the process thanks to everyone at Metropolis.’
‘We are so glad that we invested in the “Event Styling Package” with Metropolis. This was one of the best decisions we made- the expert advice and industry insight made choosing the right suppliers a breeze for us.’
