ANDREA FELLAS AND DAMON SELLIS
PEPPERS CREEK, POKOLBIN, HUNTER VALLEY, NSW
Damon and Andrea first met at a nightclub in Newcastle eight years ago, and joked about their rhyming last names – Fellas and Sellis. But it wasn’t until months later that they saw each other again. “Damon kept appearing in my check out line at the local supermarket where I worked whilst at university," says Andrea. “We then started going to the same gym and it was there that numbers were exchanged,” she says. Although Andrea was of the belief that boys should ask girls out, she asked him first. “We love each other so much, we can’t wait for the rest of our lives!”
Damon popped the question while they were away in the Cook Islands for the wedding of some friends. During the trip, Damon whisked her away to the island of Aitutaki where they shared a degustation dinner. “In between courses, Damon presented me with a beautiful radiant cut diamond and told me how he had found his soul mate and wanted to share the rest of our lives together,” says Andrea.
The wedding day
“The wedding day was amazing,” says Andrea. They had a total of 140 guests share in the day at the vineyard at Peppers Creek in the Hunter Valley with a theme of black, white, ivory and gold. “There felt like there was so much love and excitement for us. Some of the highlights were definitely putting on my gown, I felt amazing in it,” says Andrea. And, “Damon shed a couple of tears whilst seeing me walk down the aisle, which was so moving,” she says.
Andrea wore a fitted fishtail, strapless, French ivory silk gown with a sweetheart neckline. It featured a button up back and a tiered ruffle at the back. It came from Designs by Melanie Ford.
The cake had three tiers with flavours of caramel mud cake and white chocolate and raspberry mud cake. It was decorated with white icing and a black floral pattern. It came from Euro Patisserie in New Lambton.

They went to Thailand for two weeks.
