Anthony Del Col Dies Age 33

In shock news just in, celebrity wedding planner Anthony Del Col has died.

(Updated: funeral details below):

He died while holidaying in Greece, age 33.

No further details are available at this stage. Please check back in for funeral details.

Updated: the funeral for Anthony Del Col has been confirmed. It will be held on Wednesday August 21, at St Brigid's Catholic Church, 392 Marrickville Rd (corner of Livingston Road), Marrickville, at 10.30am.

Anthony was synonymous with weddings in Australia, and until recently worked with Staging Connections.

He was taking a break before branching out on his own with Anthony Del Col Events.

The company was to officially launch later this year - in fact, on the day of his 34th birthday on October 2, 2013.

My friend Kim was helping Anthony mastermind the launch event - she told me some details the day after he died about the event, and how the whole thing was going to be truly magical. Because that's what Anthony did. He always told his brides: "We only do amazing." A friend of mine pointed out: imagine making people happy all the time for a living. What a beautiful life to lead. That he did, in every way.

Anthony was a friend of mine and I am absolutely devastated.

His shining light burned SO brightly... he was the most effervescent, alive, happy, positive person I have ever met.

Every bride and groom he ever met was enamoured with him immediately. This was a very special soul.

Anthony will be much missed by his partner, his beloved mother, sister and brother, and nieces. I had the pleasure of meeting many of his family and have never seen such a close knit, loving family. They all adored Anthony to the ends of the earth. It was a true joy to see.

We have lost an absolute angel.

RIP Anthony.
