It is said that every great love begins with a great story. The story of how Frank and Alexsandra met began on New Year’s Eve 2007, in rather difficult circumstances. Two of their relatives, Frank’s brother John and Alexsandra’s nephew Adrian, had been near-fatally stabbed while trying to assist someone who was in trouble in Manly that night.
Two days later, on 2nd January 2008, Frank and Alexsandra met in a hospital waiting room. They had an instant connection, shared passion for making the world a better place and complementary life philosophies which has made them a great team to this day.
On their third date, Frank asked Alexsandra what she always dreamed of in a relationship. She said, “I don’t know and I don’t want to know. I want it to be an adventure.” Frank remembered that quote for seven and a half years, saying in his wedding toast that “It was at that moment I knew one day we’d be here. I knew we’d defy the odds of most young lovers who grow apart. That we’d take the adventure together.” Indeed, that inspiring quote has defined Frank and Alexsandra’s unwinding love story over the years. Whatever the future holds, they hope to make it an incredible adventure together.
Frank’s proposal was months in the making. For Christmas 2013, Frank presented Alexsandra with a Paris-themed box. Inside was a note detailing a trip to Paris in April 2014, during the Spring blossom. It was there, over a private dinner at Le Jules Verne at the top of the Eiffel Tower, where Frank proposed to Alexsandra and their year-long wedding celebrations began.
After their wedding, the couple returned to Paris to begin their honeymoon, before travelling through Italy – spending time in Milan, Venice, Positano and Calabria – and finally finishing their trip in Monte Carlo.
