After having a holiday and some dance lessons in Italy in 2009 Nicole decided to make the move to follow her dream of ballroom dancing, but this didn’t go as planned and so she decided to become an Au pair and continue studying. She stayed with her Au pair family on the island of Lampedusa for a month before starting work, this enabled her to get to know the family she was going to work with. Little did she know that she would meet her future husband! Gaetano the brother of her employer came to the island for his summer holiday and the rest was, as they say, history!
Nicole and Gaetano came out to South Africa in April last year for Nicole’s brothers wedding and announced their engagement while here. They looked around for a wedding venue and when they visited Penwarn Country Lodge they knew this would be perfect location for them, as it was in the most beautiful setting and had accommodation for their guests. The wedding day could not have been more perfect, the sun shone the food was wonderful and Nicole and Gaetano were able to spend time with their family and friends, what more could they ask for?
