Maja first laid eyes on Donato the day his family moved in next door, when she was just 16. Maja and her bridesmaid Kelly spent that day trying to pick the cutest of the four brothers from the safety of Maja’s front window. Little did they know, Don was Maja’s husband to be!
After photographing Don’s brother Joe, and the lovely Jess in 2012 we were happy to be asked to photograph the wedding festivities for the family again. After visiting Don and his groomsmen Joe, Phil, Giovani, Dinko and Matt, we headed over to Maja’s where the house was abuzz with excitement. Maja’s bridesmaids Kelly, Jess, Elyce, Adriana and Michelle were super organised and everything went to plan… besides the strap on Maja’s dress snapping as she climbed into the limousine. Luckily she had a pre-threaded needle in her handbag, so a crisis was adverted!
Maja and Don’s ceremony was held at St Annes Croatian Church in Fremantle, followed by bridal party photos near the river, and also in Fremantle. A big thank you to the lovely owner of the Caterham classic car who kindly let us borrow it for a few photos!
Their huge reception, with over 250 guests was held in the Golden Ballroom at the Pan Pacific, which has been recently refurbished and looked even more opulent than usual!
A big thank you to Maja and Don for inviting us to be part of your celebrations, and for such an awesome day!
