Our Story

The story of Elena and Mitch begins on Christmas Eve, 2019, when two Christmas orphans are introduced at the fulcrum of the Italian community in Brisbane (zia Clara’s house!).

Very different in some ways but compatible in many others, the pair’s love story unfolds through the Covid-19 pandemic which gives them a chance to get to know each other in a simple and genuine way.

Less than a year later, the couple is living together and a special promise ring rests on Elena’s wedding finger.

After her family meets and also falls in love with Mitch, formal intentions to marry are quietly announced.

The initial plan for a micro backyard wedding in Busselton WA slightly evolves and the couple looks forward to sharing this special day with you!

special thanks

Mitch and Elena wish to especially thank those who have helped them prepare for this day, including Paula and Rafa for building this awesome website.

Many thanks also to Clara and Khush, respectively Best Woman and Bridesmaid, who closely accompany their journey in Brisbane.
