According to a little book I own, the two of you were married on the Day of Return. This is a day of Intuition (are you hearing me Barb!!??), Power (tap into it Barb!), and Diplomacy (sometimes a little less needed and a little more self=preservation Barb... just saying...). Greg, as yet I haven't met you in person, though I've heard plenty about you, and I truly welcome the opportunity to meet the man that lights up my gorgeous friend's heart, soul and life. I look forward to celebrating with you, and yours. :-) xxx Britta xxx

About Us

Our Family

Barb's Family

Agi and Gabi are fantasic parents-in-law. I genuinely could not have asked for more supportive, friendly and welcoming in-laws.

Their story of making their way to Australia, starting with nothing and building their business is probably familiar to many of you but inspiring to me. Barb and I really enjoy spending time with them on a weekly basis and whether we are playing cards, talking about life or world events there's always more than enough hearty and mouth-watering food to go around.

We are also lucky to be sharing this event with Barb's cousin (and quasi big sister), Bea, who will be visiting from Hungary. Although speaking little English, her bubbly nature, warm smile and funky dance moves will more than make up for it.

Greg's Family

Sylvia and John were married in South Africa a little over 50 years ago. They had two sons, Duncan and Greg and immigrated to Australia in 1983. Both sides of the family are of Lithuanian heritage.

They are both avid golfers. John has been gifted with a dry sense of humour and strong sportsmanship, while Sylvia is the glue of the family. She also makes a mean leg of lamb.

Duncan, was married to Deborah Stanton in 2001 and they live in Melbourne with their three boys Caleb, Leo and Corbin. Duncan and Greg remain close brothers and friends and Deborah and Barb have struck up a strong friendship, despite the distance.

About Us

Our Story So Far

On a warm March evening in 2010, I met Greg on a blind date set up by a mutual friend. As we walked towards each other, we both smiled with anticipation that this would be better than other "first dates". The setting was a cosy Coogee Beach Bar.

Greg offered to share a meal which (for anyone who knows me) shot him to the front of the "2nd date" queue.

Little did I expect, by the second meeting, as Greg took me out for a fun-filled day, followed by cooking a meal together at his place, I would have said "yes", had he proposed, We quickly became inseperable and, just after the FIFA World Cup ended, we moved in together 3 weeks later.

We committed to one another before any proposal took place, purchasing our first home in Botany in 2011 and have been happily living there ever since (especially if we ignore the housing defects).

Greg shares my passion for family and friends, in particular when combined with meals, music and laughter.

We have enjoyed travelling together over the years, with trips abroad to South Africa, Hungary, Hawaii, Turkey, Israel, Jordan, Scotland and Ireland...and shorter stays in Melbourne, The Hunter Valley, Brisbane and Hamilton Island.

Greg proposed just under a year of us meeting and we got married just shy of 2 years (on March 18, 2012) at Wylies Baths down at Coogee Beach.

While the general consensus was that the night was filled with love and happiness, despite assurances from our caterer, the food was somewhat lacking. I vowed very soon after our event that we would have another celebration for our 5th Wedding Anniversary, which brings us to the present.

We look forward to celebrating "the years that were" with you all and hope to share many happy memeories in the years to come.

Love, B&G xx

About Us

Greg

Greg was born in South Africa and moved to Australia at the age of 10 with his parents and older brother, Duncan. Despite the mild Jo'burg accent, Greg is very much an Aussie, supporting Australian teams in just about any sport (in particular the Cricket and Rugby Union).

He loves his Golf and plays religiously. With a handicap of 6, he really has improved markedly over the years. Greg is equally passionate about cars, music and movies. Ever stumped for conversation with Greg (unlikely...but...)? Just ask him about Blazing Saddles!

My parents call him the "Golden Child" and it seems quite apt. He has a special way with my family and being ever the diplomat, can even tame this beast...most of the time.

My husband is hands down, the most considerate guy I've ever met. His warmth, humour and smile can make anyone feel comfortable almost instantly...

He has been my rock these past years, my voice of reason when I'm feeling a tad irrational, my Spider-man whenever unwanted guests arrive. I'm incredibly lucky to have him in my corner and look forward to seeing what the future holds for us.

About Us

Barb

Barb was born in Hungary and came to Australia very early in life - hence the lack of an accent (centainly can't say the same about me). Being multi-lingual (English, Hungarian and 'Barbsey') is a fantastic asset, but I'm slowly beginning to understand more and more Hungarian, so she's not going to be able to secretly speak about me for much longer.

Her sense of humour, quick wit, ability to make humourous amalgamations of two or more words (sometimes from two languages), puns and 'dad jokes' is an aspect of her personality that I love. Laughter is one of the ways Barb and I bond. I referred to 'Barbsey' as a language because she has coined so many phrases and new words that she really does have her own language.

Barb has a heart of gold and always puts others ahead of herself. She would far rather be doing volunteer work than work for a living, as helping people and giving of herself comes naturally - often to her detriment.

Finally and most importantly, being of European background, her love of food is significant. Every celebration, gathering or event is organised around the food. This is where our wedding reception (organised by yours truly) unfortunately missed the mark. From that night Barb had a plan to ensure we would once again arrange another gathering of our nearest and dearest, and feed them. She really does have a heart of gold.

In Memory

In Memory of Anett Szimler

Sunday, October 4, 2015

We were fortunate enough to have our friend Anett not only attend our wedding, but through her incredible talent, capture many wonderful moments from the day.

Anett and Barb have been friends since 2005 (when Barb was living in Hungary). Ever since our wedding, Barb and I had planned to once again invite Anett out to Australia to share in our 5th Wedding Anniversary celebrations.

Sadly, we lost Anett in October 2015. In her memory, there will be no official photographer but we would thank and welcome you to share any photos that you take on the night with us.

These can be emailed to therealpotentbliss@gmail.com
