What does the dress, planning process and the theme look like for the wedding of a fashion stylist? We take a look inside Burnside Village’s resident fashion stylist, Cimon Vozzo’s wedding day to her husband Vince.

Vince proposed on the day after my birthday at Grange beach. We got Cheeky Greek for lunch and were relaxing in the winter sun and then all of a sudden he was on one knee with an engagement ring! We called family and friends to let them know the good news and then went back to my parents to continue the celebrations.
Vince and I both have a real love for Italy so we tried to incorporate as much of our Italian heritage into our wedding day as possible. Italians are so carefree, love a good party and love to eat good food and we wanted this reflected in our wedding. The style was a touch of modern with a mix of traditional. Our stylist also really wanted to reflect our personal style as much as possible, so we decided to go with deep, dark colours.

The Stylist’s Guide
My sister and my matron of honour, Alyse, runs Adelaide’s event and styling collective, The Stylist’s Guide. I was extremely lucky to have her by my side throughout the entire process, she really took the pressure of ‘wedding planning’ away from me. Between Alyse and myself we worked together on everything from the bouquets and place cards to napkins and signage.
I wore a Toni Maticevski dress, which I bought in Sydney. It was simple, elegant and such an organic shape, and I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it. At the reception I changed into pants and a top by Caterina Varacalli from Varacalli Couture.
The morning started off with some Champagne and delicious food as we got pampered by our hairdressers and makeup artists. I was so lucky to have such an amazing group of ladies around me to make sure everything went according to plan!
We love great architecture, so we chose to have our reception at Adelaide Town Hall. We opted for a traditional reception with round tables and a long bridal table. We found it worked well and made it easy for our guests to mingle – and, of course, it also meant there was plenty of room for the dance floor. For pre-dinner drinks we started off with Aperol spritzers and a grazing table, which was followed by a three-course meal. We also had pop up bars inside the reception.
