Briana & Sian's Wedding Celebration, Darebin Parklands

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.

Elle & Marc's Slate Phuket, Thailand Wedding Sneak Peek

It is not often an email comes through asking are you free to photograph a wedding in Thailand, umm ok, let me check my calendar, yep, turns out I'm available Elle and Marc, see you in sunny Thailand! I am utter and totally stoked to be part of their wedding day, the whole day was an amazing experience hosted at the luxurious Slate Resort in Nai Yang. 

Elle and Marc's story starts back in 2009 in Singapore, where a love blossomed but later ended up having oceans between them when Elle moved to Australia for university. Flying and Skyping became the norm for a while before Marc moved his life to the Gold Coast to join Elle. Fast forward to now, they have built friendships that span world (as well as family) testament to their 26 strong bridal party. I stayed until the end of the reception to capture the ultimate party under the stars complete with a traditional Tongan dance to cap off the night.

I hope you enjoy the sneak peek, if you would like to employ my services anywhere in the world, feel free to email me.

Maggie & David's Farm Vigano Wedding

In some cultures, rain on your wedding day symbolizes fertility, abundance, unity, cleansing and a sign of a happy, long lasting marriage. When you see the beautiful connection between Maggie and David, and judging by the amount of rain that fell on their wedding day, I'm sure all of those will come true. It truly was a fun day, with lots of energy and in the end there were smiles everywhere, fun Polish traditions and a great celebration of love and family. 

It is always a pleasure to visit Farm Vigano, I always get well fed there, thanks to Suzie and the team for their hard work.

Rachel & Rick's Xavier Chapel & Mountain Goat Brewery Wedding

Welcome to the full blog post of Rachel and Rick's wedding that took place at Xavier Chapel Kew followed by a cracking reception at the on trend, Mountain Goat Brewery

When I met these two at my place for their consultation, I could tell right away that these two had an amazing bond, even after so many years together already, they still looked like they were in their honeymoon period. This made me really want to capture their love story, which on the day, the love between family and friends was evident as soon as I walked into Rick's parents home right through to the father daughter dance I got to witness. Even during the speeches I had trouble looking through my viewfinder because Rachel and Rick's journey is so truly inspirational and beautiful which caused not a dry eye in the house, including me.

Rachel wore a dress hand made by a family friend, graced with flowers from Lilac and the Cat, and made up the very talented MUA to the stars, Eliza Langdon. To please the boys, there was a convoy of the most stunning vehicles I have ever seen, courtesy of Grandsport Paint and Custom.

Kathleen and Shaun's Corowa New South Wales Chocolate & Whisky Factory Wedding - Sneak Peek

Last weekend I had the opportunity to photograph the beautiful wedding between Kathleen and Shaun on the New South Wales/Victoria border in the stunning country town of Corowa. The area has been hit with flood waters, but luckily it didn't affect their day. After a ceremony at St Mary's Catholic Church, the day was followed up at the gorgeous Corowa Chocolate and Whisky Factory. I could have took pictures for hours here.

Melissa & Matt's Richmond, Melbourne Wedding at Mountain Goat Brewery

I am pleased to bring you the full blog post of Melissa and Matt's gorgeous Richmond Wedding, a day that reflected their fun loving and relaxed style. The day started off with nuptials being said at the luxe Amora Hotel courtyard, followed by a leisurely stroll through Richmond on foot with no set locations or time lines, just good banter with the bridal party which made for photography gold. The party ensued at the Mountain Goat Brewery just down the road, styled to the max by One Day Your Way     where heartfelt speeches were heard and feet moved to the tunes. 

I loved capturing this wedding, a couple so in love with each other, awesome close family and friends and a truly easy going flow on the day....It is my best work yet I think.

Julie & John's Wedding Stillwater at Crittenden Wedding

You saw Julie and John's beautiful Temple Blessing at the Hoa Nghiem Buddhist Temple in Springvale, now it is time for their stunning wedding at the ever popular Stillwater at Crittenden in Dromana. All the styling from the dress to the table decorations screamed class and sophistication that was a dream to photograph, not to mention jostling for space on the dance floor with the most epic dancing I have ever seen at a wedding, dodging high kicks and swaying arms all jumping around to the Zorba tunes. The winter weather held off stunning day, right until sunset allowing us to capture some great formal portraits down by the vineyard and lake. 

Enjoy the images, I certainly do as I can't stop looking them! Contact me for availability at your wedding.

Marcel.
