Patrick and Ioana
Ioana and Patrick first met as kids while attending school in the Middle East. Patrick and his family moved to England, while Ioana and her family moved to Canada the following year. Through the magic of Facebook, the two reconnected in 2007 and began exchanging long messages and phone calls. After a year of long distance, Patrick moved to Canada to start a life with Ioana.
Nearly seven years into their relationship, Ioana and Patrick were visiting Spain with Ioana’s family. Under a blistering hot sun, in the magical gardens of the Alcazar, Patrick got down on one knee and finally asked Ioana to marry him. With her whole family watching and tears in her eyes, Ioana said yes.
Our wedding took place at Azuridge Estate Hotel, a stunning property nestled in the hills of Priddis. It is best described as a unique blend of romance and elegance with a modern edgy twist. From the very beginning of the process, I knew that a traditional white wedding dress was not part of my bridal vision. I chose the unique alabaster coloured Hayley Paige Dori gown, knowing that it was the perfect blend of edginess and femininity that captured my personality perfectly. My bridesmaids chose soft blush coloured chiffon gowns from the Hayley Paige Occasions line to complement the colour palette and earthy florals. Our wedding brought together cultures, families, and traditions from multiple continents, into an intimate and heartfelt celebration of love.
