A year of celebrations

Engagements, weddings and beautiful babies!

Engagements, weddings and beautiful babies!

There have been many wonderful reasons to celebrate during 2019! Within the First Financial family we’ve had engagements, weddings and beautiful babies… every tear jerking moment you can imagine.

We want to take a moment now to reflect on all the happiness we have shared together.

Soon to be newly weds

Soon to be newly weds

Paul Seidl proposed to Carla Cipressi in August… little did she know he had planned a surprise ‘house-warming party’, for their friends and family to join in the celebrations.

Wedding plans are now underway for their 2021 nuptials.

We are also looking forward to some early 2020 weddings when James Grixti and Rachel tie the knot in January… followed soon after by Nick Donato and Mel. Watch this space for updates early next year on their special days.

Got hitched

Back in January, Emily Still and Sean Vincent tied the knot at Docklands. There was lots of dancing and even a fireworks display for their special day before they headed off to Nusa Dua and Ubud for a Balinese honeymoon.

Ryan Keenan and Laura travelled overseas for their nuptials. They headed to the States and got married in Chicago in August. We know there is much happiness to come for these two!

Gavin Colosimo and Ilana Donde travelled to Sri Lanka in November for a truly unique wedding.

Many of their First Financial colleagues were there to celebrate with them in the tropical heat.

The sun was definitely shining for them on the day and we hope their many years ahead together are just as bright.

Special arrivals

Special arrivals

First Financial team members Chris Pomaroff and Rebekah Jacob had their beautiful baby girl Hannah in February. Watching her sleep so peacefully is a delight.

Financial Adviser Brendan Smith and his wife, Miranda, welcomed Isla Kydd to the world on Friday 8th March at Francis Perry House. She is truly adored by all her family.

Annie Nguyen and Derek Thai welcomed sweet Athena Chan-My Thai in the early hours of the morning on the 7th May. With a soft smile, she brings everybody joy. Just don’t take away her dummy… or there’ll be trouble!

Plus, Nick Thomas and Zuz had baby number two in November. Emilia’s arrival has made their family even more special, and we know the holidays in their house will be a time filled with happiness.

Finally, to round out the year, Charlene and Colin have just welcomed their 2nd baby boy, Tristan Lee. He was due at the end of December but was too excited to wait for Christmas! Congratulations to everyone.
