A year ago, half of The New Victorians duo, Philippa and hubby Julian Naudi finally got hitched after Covid ruined their initial May plans.

While the couple was meant to get hitched on 17th May, they eventually got married on 19th June instead. Despite the inevitable disappointment a change in wedding date comes with, it actually came full circle as exactly a year before on 19th June 2019, Julian had proposed! So it was quite a special date for the couple.

Philipp and Julian said ‘I do’ at the Bidnija parish church followed by a gathering at Philippa’s family home in Bidnija.

“When we first decided on the date, restrictions had only allowed for small groups to gather and we were ready to proceed with a seated dinner with just our immediate families. However, four days before, restrictions lifted, so we could invite our 120 nearest and dearest,” Philippa told Bliss Magazine at the time.

“The ceremony was lovely – super prayerful, meaningful and overwhelming. My siblings, Bettina and Sam, took care of the music. They were patient enough to learn all the songs we had asked for and sounded heavenly,” she says. “It felt so intimate and emotional. I always expected to be a bride that would laugh through the ceremony, but there were moments where I couldn’t hold back the tears!”

“Confetti, cake, flowers and friends are all wonderful, but it was never about them. It’s about the love between you both, and nothing will take that from you unless you let it.”
