Paulina & Hilton's Wedding Theme:
Paulina Repits and Hilton Pohl’s Gatsby-inspired wedding, coordinated from start to finish by Paulina herself, was a stunning display of old world elegance with plenty of swoon-worthy details. QB particularly adored Paulina’s breathtaking slinky silk gown and sheer headpiece – 20s style with a modern twist. The reception, which was held in Palazzo Versace’s La Medusa Ballroom, combined soft pinks and creams – the incredible seven-tiers of individual cakes an absolute standout!

Groom's special memory:
The moment I saw my beautiful bride as she started running down the aisle.
Bride's special memory:
The look on Hilton’s face when he saw me run (no joke, I practically sprinted) down the aisle. It was also very special to have my mum, dad and my younger sisters (the flower girls) spend the morning of the wedding with my bridesmaids and myself as we were all getting ready!
A special thanks to those family and friends who came from interstate and overseas! And to all of our beautiful guests who made our day so special.
Advice for other brides-to-be:
Take in (and appreciate) every moment because it goes so, incredibly, quickly! Also, spend plenty of time with your husband (on the day)! I have been to so many weddings where the bride and groom barely see each other as they are so busy with their guests! Hilton and I went around and spoke to each table together in the beginning of the night. After that we made a point to see each other as much as possible. It’s your wedding after all - spend it together!
Bride's Funniest Moment:
We had a session in the photo booth together. Playing with the disguises and props was hilarious.
