The 25-year-old’s bridesmaids also wore all black gowns
Her husband wore coated black jeans, a paisley shirt and maroon blazer
She said she ‘never wanted to look like everybody else’ at her wedding
When most brides-to-be (or even just single women in their 20s) dream about their wedding day, their fantasies usually include a beautiful white dress.
For Sophie Cachia, from Melbourne, this wasn’t what she wanted for her big day.
The 25-year-old decided to break tradition and wear a jet black gown to walk down the aisle and marry her husband-to-be.
Mrs Cachia said everyone that knew her was not surprised she chose to wear black, and she and her husband simply wanted to wear something they wanted to wear on their wedding day.
‘I didn’t want anything traditional … everyone has a wedding, why does everyone have to do everything the same, there’s no rule book,’ she said.
‘I didn’t do it for attention, or to be known as the girl who wore a black dress on my wedding day.
‘I just wanted to wear a dress I think is beautiful.’
