Emily Roscoe and Rob Grogan originally met at a party organised by friends and the moment Rob set eyes on Emily he knew there was something special about her.
Luckily for Rob it appeared that Emily felt the same way, and so begun the story of their love.
Five years later, on August 3, 2012, the happy couple's dream wedding became a reality as they married in the heart of Tuscany whilst bathed in brilliant summer sunshine.
The beautiful English rose and her handsome beau were joined by a party of 70 friends and family to enjoy their nuptials in the Italian city of Siena. Emily and Rob said their 'I do's' in the exquisite Siena Town Hall – the perfect backdrop for the romantic union.

Guests had flown in from around the world, and the couple themselves had flown over from Australia – where they currently reside — for their wonderful destination wedding.
Wth the marriage ceremony held in Siena itself, the rest of the three-day wedding celebrations were hosted in the breathtaking rural resort of Dievole, located 20 minutes from Siena in the heart of the Chianti region.
Guests were welcomed with an authentic Tuscan barbecue to start the marital festivities whilst being serenaded by local musicians – an accordion player and a guitarist – and treated to an impromptu performance from the twinkle-toed dancing chef!
The big day itself was blessed with blue skies, blazing sunshine, a stunning bride and groom and, thankfully for the entire wedding party, fully air conditioned coaches to whisk them to and from the ceremony.
Following the tear-jerking ceremony in Siena, guests arrived back to Dievole to enjoy an ambrosial aperitivo overlooking the rolling hills of the picturesque wine region. Later followed by the wedding breakfast and dancing late into the night – including a fantastic guest MC performance by a close friend.
Emily told HELLO! Online: "It was an absolutely perfect day, I know every bride says that but it really was magical and so amazing to be able to celebrate with our close friends and family in such a beautiful location."
"And now the best part is that I get to start the rest of my life with Rob as my husband."
