Astra and Raphael got engaged in 2011, when Raphael presented Astra with a stunning white gold diamond solitaire ring. It was engraved with the words ‘I Love Astra’.
They were engaged for nearly two years before their intimate wedding took place. The couple knew they both wanted a low-key, classic wedding day, and found their dream venue by searching online. Luxury retreat Sea Farm appeared high in their searches, and looked amazing.
Raphael and Astra originally wanted to marry on the 10/11/12, but as the venue was so booked up they ended up getting married on the 2nd February 2013, the last day for a Dragon Year wedding. The couple had a traditional church wedding, followed by a reception with an ivory, gold and champagne colour scheme held at Sea Farm.
