An impromptu visit to Andrew Mazzone Design Jewellers
Lisa and Mel had been looking for the perfect place to find their engagement rings for a while but hadn’t had any luck finding rings they both loved. One Saturday they had to do some shopping in the city and Lisa thought it may be a good idea to pop into Andrew Mazzone Design Jewellers. From walking in, being greeted by the lovely staff in store – within 45 minutes they had walked out having designed two gorgeous engagement rings that captured them perfectly!
It was early 2018 when the couple spontaneously popped into Andrew Mazzone Design Jewellers and walked out the same day having designed their engagement rings. They had been told the rings would take 8 weeks to be custom-make but immediately after they left Lisa had secretly emailed Andrew Mazzone to ask if the studio would only let her know when the rings were complete. In the meantime, Lisa had organised a breakfast with Mel’s brother to ask his permission and also created a keepsake book about their journey and everything she loved about Mel.
Mel had been away on a work trip when she noticed a book on the table and started to read it, it was filled with cute cartoons of them and their relationship. Mel still hadn’t realised what was going on, until she turned to the page with a sweet cartoon featuring Lisa on one knee, asking “will you marry me?” – Mel said to Lisa in a high pitched scream “are you serious?” followed by “is there even a ring yet?” Lisa pulled the ring from under the couch and said “well are you going to say yes?” to which Mel said, “yes of course!” There were floods of happy tears and lots of excitement.
Andrew Mazzone Design Jewellers can keep a secret!
Mel said, “Andrew and his team are good at keeping secrets! The ladies are so welcoming and genuinely excited to hear about our relationship, engagement and wedding. Andrew is delightful to work with as well! It makes sense, how else can they perfectly capture an individual and create something so special and unique? They helped us design two stunning engagement rings, two beautiful wedding bands to complement our engagement rings and finally helped Lisa pick out the perfect wedding day present for Mel – a gorgeous locket so she could carry her late father close to her heart throughout their special day. We can’t speak highly enough of Andrew and his team, we won’t be heading to another jeweller again!”
Their wedding day, 4th May 2019 was perfect. They hired an AirBNB in Bowden and got ready together before Lisa and Mel went their separate ways to get dressed into their gorgeous gowns made by the incredibly talented Greta Kate.
London cabs transported everyone to Carclew House, North Adelaide, where their outdoor ceremony was held. A stunning day, the sun shined down on the beautiful brides with their wonderful celebrant Alix Corry taking their 95 guests on a perfectly captured journey of their relationship. Grazing boards, an open bar and games followed the ceremony on the lawns of Carclew. Their signature L+M drink was a highlight!
Their beautiful day was captured by the amazing Jess and Dylan Russell at Lilac In Hand Photography. The talented Sam Nicholson from Lightwise whisked Mel and Lisa away for some photo/video shoot fun in the backstreets of Bowden before they headed to their reception at Plant 4 Bowden. Being foodies, they organised the lovely Jessie from Jessie Does Food and she delivered the most sensational menu! Wine continued to flow and the dancing never stopped until it was time for their sparkler send-off.
In July, the happy couple went on an overseas honeymoon. It was a whirlwind three weeks travelling to Toronto, Niagara Falls, New York, Iceland, Poland, Positano, Naples and Milan. Mel and Lisa said,
“We were definitely spoilt on our honeymoon and loved our time travelling back to our favourite city in the world, New York!”
Mel said, “Even writing this and reminiscing on our adventure from the day we walked into Andrew Mazzone Design Jewellers to now makes us smile. It was a wonderful journey, full of people who stopped at nothing to make our wedding day and the journey to that day nothing but magical. We are so very lucky!”
