Stones of The Yarra Valley Wedding of Nikita and Cleo

Tell me about the beginning!
We met in Deakin University in Burwood last January 2018 as an international students. With a lot of commonalities (including heartbreaks), we became really good friends to the extent that we became each other’s confidant. Spent a lot of time together until we realised we have fallen in love with each other. It’s true what they say expect the unexpected.. We both kept it as a secret from each at first because we don’t want to risk the friendship but the love for each other was surely stronger, we made it exclusive on May 2020 and here we are, planning our dream wedding.


When and where did you get engaged?
Cleo proposed to me on the snowy mountains of Mt Bawbaw last 21 July 2022.


What style/theme have you chosen for your Wedding Day?

Top Tips!
