Melissa & Nicholas “The White Wedding” – Werribee Mansion Wedding Photography

“…You got to be the only one
Who knows just who I am
And you shine in the distance
I hope I can make it through
‘Cause the only place
That I want to be
Is right back home with you…” *

Nic & Mel met in Canberra when Nic reached out, after seeing a photo of her with a mutual friend – when they realised they’d gone to the same high school.  (If you’d been at their wedding – and trust me, it was AMAZING – you would have heard all the gorgeous details, in a beautiful and hilarious account during the ceremony and the speeches!) Four years later; as Nic’s professional rugby career saw them embarking on an adventure to live in France,  Nic proposed to Mel on her family farm.

Every member of the Bridal Party and guest, travelled to Melbourne for the stunning wedding at Werribee Mansion.  It was a perfect day, for a beautiful couple.  Congratulations Nic & Mel! x

Beata & Joel | St Kilda Wedding Photography

Beata & Joel are one of those couples who after 1 minute you feel you’ve known forever, and I’m sure everyone will agree, are just gorgeous!  Having met through friends 9 years ago at a place called the Poolroom, Joel proposed at the local park while they were taking their dog for a walk.

It was a beautiful, however very windy day when they celebrated their wedding at the relaxed and casual (yet elegantly beautiful) venue Sandbar in St Kilda.  Congratulations guys, such a pleasure to be a part of your special day x

Krissy & Ivan | Encore St Kilda Wedding Photography Melbourne

I’ve known Krissy for almost 15 years and was so excited when she called to say that Ivan had proposed and would I photograph their wedding!
Krissy & Ivan met at a mutual friend’s 21st birthday party.  They were on a jumping castle.  Yep!  How cool is that!?? They have been together for 10 years, when last Christmas, Ivan asked Krissy to marry him.
Now for most Australian’s (ok mainly Victorian’s) Grand Final weekend is a big one.  Well, it was much bigger for these two lovebirds!  Two ceremony’s and the party of all parties at Encore in St Kilda.  I mentioned on our Facebook page that their wedding weekend was EPIC, and well, it was!
The first civil ceremony was under the amazing ‘Dome’ on Collins St, Melbourne.  Now normally the city can be a little difficult to navigate on a weekend, however not on Grand Final day.  It felt almost like a ghost town!  We went on a little journey around the city for our photos, whilst listening/watching to the grand final on one of the groomsman’s mobiles.  (I was super happy, he was not so much… yes you guessed right, I’m a Hawthorn supporter!)  We completed our adventure back at Encore in St Kilda, where we chilled out to watch the final quarter of the football and relax before the party started.  The reception was a wonderful celebration with photos of their parents and grandparents weddings, and few rounds of Macedonian dancing! Their first dance was AMAZING, and choreographed by Krissy’s sister and head bridesmaid, Trish.

The next morning was the traditional Macedonian Orthodox ceremony, followed by a lunch with close family & friends.
Congratulations Krissy & Ivan, it was a wonderful weekend!  We had a ball with you both x

Werribee Mansion Wedding Photography | Sarah & Jay

Jay and Sarah met on a crisp autumn evening in 2010 at a dinner organised by Jay’s now sister in law Jillian and his brother Jay Vern.  During the night the romanced blossomed and Jay sneakily persuaded Sarah to give him her contact details, claiming that he wanted her input for an upcoming best man’s speech that he was giving at Jillian and Jay’s Vern’s wedding.  He asked her on a date the next day and the rest is history!

Three years later Jay surprised Sarah with a trip to Hamilton Island.  On the first evening they went for a walk along Catseye beach where Sarah found a half buried ‘message in a bottle’.  As she started reading the message which was from Jay, he dropped to one knee and proposed.  The romance followed with a private dinner on the beach.

It’s no surprise that their wedding day was classic, romantic and beautiful.  With the gorgeous Werribee Mansion as a stunning backdrop, fitting their day beautifully.  The sacred Chinese Tea Ceremony symbolised respect to older generations and acceptance into the family.  The tempo changed as celebrations spilled on into the Grand Ballroom.  Up until then, everything had gone totally to plan, when suddenly the DJ stopped the music to inform us we had to evacuate outside due to the fire department investigating.  Thankfully there was no fire (rather the use of a smoke machine elsewhere!), and the party continued!  Sarah & Jay are now settling into their new life in Trinidad where they have been re-located with work.

Congratulations Sarah & Jay, such a wonderful to be a part of!  xx

(excuse the Iphone image, we gathered all the important items such as memory cards / laptops, anything with wedding images on it, rather than the cameras! You just never know when there’s evacuations!)

Jen & Brad | Bram Leigh Wedding Photography Melbourne

What can I say?  The GORGEOUS Jen & Brad…. sigh;)

I met Jen about 3 years ago when she sang at my brother’s wedding.  A surprise from my beautiful sister-in-law to her new husband instead of a speech.  Jen brought the house down.  (And I still get teary whenever I hear that Keith Urban song, although Jen sang it better!)

When Jen & Brad announced their engagement I think everyone squealed in delight!  I know I did!

Joining them on their wedding journey has been so much fun.  Alex took to his video camera once more, and I got my awesome photography buddy Mandy to help me on the day.  It was like one big happy family:)

Their wedding day was amazing.  I can’t tell you how full of love, adoration, joyful tears and (of course) fun it was.  From start to finish, it was just a day to remember.  From the bee getting symbolically trapped in Jen’s dress, to the look in Brad’s eyes every mili-second he looked at his new bride, to the party at the reception – with instruments for the guests to play along with the band!

Congratulations my beautiful friends, a wedding I’ll never, ever forget xx
