The Tognini name is well known in Brisbane with Kristian Tognini’s father running Tognini’s Hair Skin & Body and his uncle the Tognini’s cafes and bistros around town. So we knew the wedding of Kristian and Moira O’Callaghan was going to be a wonderful family affair – and the hair was going to be gorgeous!
This elegant celebration didn’t disappoint, full of fun, laughter and delightful details. The groom cut a dashing figure beside his gorgeous bride – and we love the sunny splash of yellow in the styling too, so uplifting!
Moira's stunning Karen Willis Holmes wedding gown
“Kristian proposed in Central Park New York, over a takeaway breakfast from Dean and De Luca. I had no idea. We enjoyed the day walking around Central Park and called our family back home. Kristian had asked my dad a few weeks before who had kept it a secret from my mum! That evening we had an amazing surprise dinner at Spice Market to celebrate.”
Kristian looking all handsome ...
“Taking the time to hug and say thank you to everyone when we were walking down the aisle to the recessional song. (I think our piano player had to replay the song a few times!) It was really worth seeing everyone and being able to show our gratitude to them for attending.”
Perfect spot for some pre-reception pictures, sunset on the grounds of the couple's reception venue GOMA

Gorgeous reception location, The GOMA roof top terrace looks out over the Brisbane River with views of the city skyline and Kurilpa Bridge ..
