From Melbourne to Midlands: A Refreshing Peach Spring Wedding

 June 24, 2018

Tosca & Xavier’s story could very well be a plot for a romantic movie aptly entitled ‘Melbourne to Midlands’.

Imagine a young Filipina moving to a Melbourne to pursue her career. Fairly new to the city, she meets a Fil-Australian guy in a club one random night. They eventually get to know each other better and find out that they’re so different from each other. Yet despite everything, somehow, they just hit it off and love blossomed. Fast forward to 9 years after, they find themselves back to their roots, saying their ‘I do’s’ in the scenic Madre De Dios of Tagaytay Midlands.

We love stories of how people who seem so different actually turn out to be the best complement for the other. As their love for each other endures, they eventually find their common, connecting ground.

Of their relationship, Tosca shares,

“We have nothing much in common apart from our love and closeness to our families. Even though we are so different, for some reason, it works for us.”

And what an amazing 9 years it must have been for these two. What with Xavier’s proposal in Guam in true romantic form.

“It was special, just the two of us walking in the beach after a nice dinner, he knelt on one knee and he asked me if I would marry him.”

There are so many ways proposals have been done over the years, yet this scene never gets old. It’s a story that can give a girl all sorts of ‘kilig’ feelings once relived, or even just told.

Such a journey these two must have had from Melbourne to Midlands. Their wedding photos and videos captured by the talented Mr. David Garmsen reflected such refreshing and enduring love. We see a peach spring theme that simply & elegantly fell into place.

Tosca shared with us how this once in a lifetime milestone is accentuated by their Top Knotter moment.

“It was definitely the SDE. I knew that there was going to be an SDE, but I didn’t expect it to be that moving and emotional for all of us. I knew David and his team are great at what they do and I wouldn’t expect any less, but actually watching it and looking back at the last couple of hours was really special and emotional for everyone and Im truly grateful that David and his team captured it beautifully.”


Now, preparing for a wedding from Melbourne to Midlands might be quite a challenge. But Tosca & Xavier had their bases covered.

We asked them if there was anything, on hindsight, that they wish they knew while they were planning for the wedding.

“I think I was prepped well. I knew it was gonna be hard and a bit frustrating at times most especially because we were doing a destination wedding. I’m just very grateful to my wedding coordinator, Tina Offemaria as she helped me through most of the things that I was stressing about.”

From Melbourne to Midlands. From now til forever. To Tosca & Xavier, we wish a strong & smooth married life. They might encounter some bumps & hiccups in this new journey of theirs, but we trust that their years forward with be as or more amazing than the 9 years they’ve had. And may the bond of love and family always see them through with God always in their midst.
