Sometimes I can just tell with a couple, what their wedding day is going to be like, not long after I meet them for the first time in their initial consultation. I listen to the story of how they met, how they fell in love and the journey leading up to the planning of their wedding. But what stands out for me is the energy between two souls, how they just get each other and are in constant hysterics. That tells me we’re in for a beautiful wedding full of fun and laughter.
I rate the love between these two 10/10, Adam’s speech 10/10, the guest’s energy 10/10, venue 10/10 and Daniela’s mum’s espresso 10/10! You wouldn’t have thought this wedding was basically put together in around a month, which is in incredible feat. Everything went smoothly, everyone had fun and beautiful photographs were made.
For the Italians: Considero l'amore tra questi due 10/10, il discorso di Adam 10/10, l'energia dell'ospite 10/10, il locale 10/10 e l'espresso di mamma di Daniela 10/10! Non avresti pensato che questo matrimonio è stato messo insieme in circa un mese, il che è incredibile. Tutto è andato liscio, tutti si sono divertiti e sono state fatte belle fotografie.
Mel and Steve are yet another reminder why I do this, a fun loving couple, an awesome bridal party with an incredible bond and a family that shows so much love and togetherness. They truly have their ducks in a row (you’ll see what I mean by that in the photos below)! I am lucky to be let into these people’s live documenting their legacy, it is truly an honor. Today I bring you a sneak peek of their fun celebration at a venue I highly recommend, this wedding really had it all.
Wedding season is in full swing now. March kicks off with Katherine and Jervis’ wedding that started off at the Polish Marion Shrine, Aberfeldie. I must commend the highly spirited bridal party and couple dealing with the high 30’s temperature during an epic photo session at my now favourite photoshoot location, Melbourne University. Everyone had a ball including me, the chemistry between these two is the type you wish you could bottle and that still was even more evident at the reception at the uber cool Brunswick Mess Hall. Here is a small taster of such a fantastic day.
Recently I had the pleasure of photographing the wedding celebration of Briana and Sian at the Darebin Parklands on a gorgeous summer’s day. Even though they had their official wedding previously, it was time for a round two so they could share the experience with Sian’s parents who came all the way from the UK, so they could see the union of their love first hand. What’s better than one wedding? Two weddings right! Plus their uber cute doggo Ned could sit in on the nuptials and of course steal some attention. The celebrations kicked on at the 3 Raven’s brewery in Thornbury for beer, fun times and wicked tunes.
Yesterday’s wedding was a clear reminder for me why I do this job, not only seeing a gorgeous couple get together on their wedding day, but the uniting of two loving families. Tears were shed, smiles worn and epic dancing until late. I was privileged also to be part of not only their engagement shoot, but also their tea ceremony, full of meaning and beautiful traditions. Enjoy the sneak peek, still more to come this wedding season.
Perfect weather all week for the start of Spring, then heavy rain forecast for your wedding day, that’s just Melbourne at it’s best isn’t it? But even so, no amount of rain can wash away the fun and the love these two have for each other. Spirits were high, with a really intimate gathering on a Tuesday to celebrate the anniversary of their first date (how cute!). With a beautiful speech from Saige’s eldest daughter that brought on tears from everyone, despite the clouds there was sunshine in everyone’s hearts.
Enjoy the sneak peek, more to come after the delivery of their photos. Enjoy South Africa guys!
When I curate a blog post for a wedding, I normally select 90-100 photographs, but in the case of Beatriz and Justin's Port Melbourne wedding I could barely keep it under 150! That was because there was something happening all the time. So much fun, love, tears and excitement. Especially when it came to the reception, the DJ dropped jam after jam making the crowd go wild all the way to the end at the sensational venue, The Pier.
Enjoy the journey between these two gorgeous souls, and if you know anyone that has just become engaged, let them know what I can do for them.
