In an early-contender for wedding of the year, Paul Vasileff wedded his now-wife Anna (née Frangiosa) in a magical, fairytale wedding over the weekend.

Vasileff is the mastermind and creative director behind Adelaide couture fashion house, Paolo Sebastian, and has been dazzling onlookers with his whimsical, intricate designs from the moment he launched his first collection in 2007. At just 17 years old, the Adelaide-born and raised creative started what would become a global icon on the fashion scene eventually dressing the likes of Kim Kardashian, Megan Gale and Katy Perry.

Paul and Anna chose many local SA businesses as suppliers for the event, described by many as the perfect combination of open-air party and black-tie elegance.

Organised by Adelaide events guru Mia Gambranis, it took place at Mandalay House, with its stunning forest paths and manicured hedges. The perfect backdrop for a fairytale wedding.

The centrepiece of this magnificent wedding were the three gowns, designed by the groom himself (Paolo Sebastian). Vasileff told Vogue that it took the artillery three months to make them. Three months well spent. Last year, Paul told Showcase SA that, whilst he had a say in assembling and designing the dresses, he chose not to see the final product, leaving him free to see them on his partner on the night.

The first dress, which Anna wore for the main ceremony, was an off-the-shoulder piece crafted from French Chantilly lace adorned with dozens of three-dimensional, beaded floral appliqués. The second dress, created for the newly weds’ first dance, was a timeless, slate-grey strapless gown, scattered with stars woven from 20 layers of Italian and French tulle. And as the night stretched across the rustic landscape, and the moonlight shone brightly onto the dance floor, the bride oozed elegance, wearing a corseted, long-sleeved gown with an illusion neckline. Custom shoes were also made, using the same fabric as the dress.

Complementing the stunning gowns, the bride had breathtaking makeup applied by Samantha Valassis (Sammy Makeup), and hair by Zohair Salon. The groom and groomsmen wore hand-tailored suits by Unique Tailoring using British Dormeuil wool, and the gorgeous custom wedding rings designed by J W Jewellery.

Catering was undertaken by Indulgence Food Design who served up a delicious feast sourced from fresh, local ingredients via the wait staff at Are You Being Served. The happy couple chose Lyons Den Cakes to make a three-tier, semi-naked wedding cake with floral separators, and Lemon & Elderflower and Champagne Strawberry wedding cakes. To top off the menu, the team at Caffettiera Carts served handmade gelato from a gorgeous, wooden trike.

Studio Botanic created stunning floral pieces with a personal touch. Vasileff’s mum Franca planted flowering seeds a year ago and grew delicate lace like flowers in their family home, which were then hand picked and used to create the bouquets in the days leading up to the wedding.  These were accentuated by strung ribbon and soft, subtle lighting by Venue Productions and flickering candles by Candle Co.

Furniture, and the stunning marquee was provided by White Marquee, enveloping guests in the magic, adorned with specialty linen from Chair Covers Over All. The dance floor, where the couple had their first dance, was by local creative studio hygge.
