Monika Radulovic, who was crowned Miss Universe Australia in 2015, married her artist fiancé Alesandro Ljubicic in a lavish affair in a Sydney suburb at the weekend.

The wedding was held at the Miramare Gardens, described as a “five star venue” in Terrey Hills, a suburb of northern Sydney. The day included an outdoor ceremony in the gardens, as well as an elaborate reception in a dining hall decorated with incredible hanging floral displays, including hand-painted orchids, and abundant crystal chandeliers.

The bride wore a Swarovski crystal-encrusted couture gown from Galia Lahav, inspired by one of her favourite of Ljubicic’s paintings, like many of the other details of the wedding.

The bridal party and their guests shared moments of the day on Instagram – and it looks pretty spectacular.

The bride wore a custom gown designed by Sharon Sever Faibish, the head designer at couture house Galia Lahav. The photos below show the magenta detail on the bodice, which Radulovic explains is based on one of her favourite paintings of Ljubicic’s. ‘It’s encrusted with thousands of sequins and Swarovski crystals,’ she wrote.

The dress came complete with a long train at the back.
