Melbourne Wedding Photography | Giovanni & Joanne

Gio married his #1 wife, in front of his #2 wife (the best man) in Las Vegas, Nevada in May of this year.  Yes, I was a tad jealous that my darling brother (the best man) and my sister-in-law (maid of honour) got to go on the trip of a lifetime with their best friends, who are also dear friends of mine!

So on their return from their amazing time in Las Vegas, they had a second wedding with friends and family in Melbourne.  This post is an example of what happens when wedding photography gets personal…  The bridal party pull more faces in front of the camera than smiles, the best man (AKA #2 wife) becomes the waiter, the photographer becomes a florist & an assistant hairdresser (and of course has to appear in the blog post!)..  They dance around thinking I’m not going to take the photo… believe me.  If it happens, I will photograph it;)

The guests got to watch a video of the ceremony in Las Vegas, before tears and hugs filled the room.  Gio brought the house down with his amazing speech.  So much so wife #2 didn’t get a chance to make his, so here it is:)

“The day I married my best friend

The one I laugh with as we share life’s wondrous zest
As we find new enjoyment and experience all the best

You are the one I live for, because the world seems brighter
Our happy times are better and our burdens much lighter

The one I love with all my soul
we used to feel vaguely incomplete

Now we are whole.”

They say newborn babies only smile when they have wind…  I think that is a myth;) I have photographic proof!

“So be sure when you step,
Step with care and great tact.
And remember that life’s
A Great Balancing Act.
And will you succeed?
Yes! You will, indeed!

Kid, you’ll move mountains.

You’re off to Great Places!
Today is your day!
Your mountain is waiting,
So… get on your way!”
