NOT too many people can enlist the services of their cousin to conduct a church wedding ceremony.
Having her cousin Father John Corrigan, a newly ordained priest, conduct the wedding Mass when she married Jarrod Sheehan made the day all the more special for Jacinta Stapleton.
The couple, who live in Melbourne, met at a party in Ballarat and exchanged mobile phone numbers.
However, it wasn't until a couple of months later that Jarrod called Jacinta and asked her out for a drink.
He proposed during a romantic weekend getaway, presenting her with a stunning diamond ring.
The couple was married at St Joseph's Church in Warrnambool on February 11, 2012 the same church where all Jacinta's family members were christened.
Jacinta wore an ivory strapless gown that was laced at the back.
The guipure lace dress featured hand-beaded Swarovski crystals, pearls and sequins.
The 10 layers of Georgette and fine tulle featured flowers and sequins.
Jacinta also wore a cathedral-length veil with a diamante and pearl headpiece, matching earrings and a bracelet and ivory lace shoes.
The bridesmaids wore long coral chiffon gowns which featured a delicately ruched bodice with a strap across one shoulder.
The groom wore a formal black dinner suit with a vest, while the groomsmen wore classic black suits with white shirts and black ties, with a white rose on the lapel.
The Carmichael on Cramer was decorated with masses of white flowers, tall candelabras, large urns and elaborate table settings for the reception.
The four-tiered wedding cake was covered in white chocolate and decorated with fresh flowers and Swarovski crystals.
It was made up of layers of chocolate mud cake with chocolate ganache and white mud cake with raspberry ganache and was served with strawberries and cream for dessert.
Sue Swayne, from Functions Unlimited, helped create a stunning bouquet of tiger lilies, roses, Singapore orchids and byfield fern, which Jacinta carried with her grandmother's handkerchief.
Tracey Togni and her team of photographers captured hundreds of memorable moments throughout the day.
