Nick & Nicolette - Rupert on Rupert, Collingwood Wedding

These two!! Absolutely gorgeous inside and out! What a pleasure it was to photograph their wedding day.
Nicolette and Nicholas (affectionately known as girl-Nic and boy-Nick) opted to have a "first look" before the ceremony. A moment that was so sweet and emotional for both of them.
The ceremony and reception were held at Rupert on Rupert in Collingwood, a stunning, light-filled space with an intimate feel. The bride and groom had their guests in fits of laughter as well as tears during the ceremony. Nicolette promised to love Nick everyday and to love him even more when he cannot love himself. Nick promised to make Nicolette laugh but to not be funnier than her. They both hope to create little humans that kind of, sort of, look like them.
Before the couple and their guests danced the night away, some hilarious and heartfelt speeches were delivered. Nicolette's Dad had the crowd roaring with laughter right to the end.
Girl-Nic and boy-Nick then led the way to the dance floor with a fun routine that they had choreographed together.
What an afternoon, what a night!

Alex & Jess - Collingwood Children's Farm

It wasn't your standard wedding. Jess and Alex made the day all their own, beginning by getting ready together with their bridal party.
Jess wore a knee length white dress and the rest of the bridal party mixed and matched in red and orange.
The ceremony was short and sweet and as the sun went down we found pockets of light around Collingwood Children's Farm to take the couple's photos. 
There was a whole lot of love, laughter, dancing and wine! 
My cheeks still hurt! 😁

Jess & Matt - Vue on Halcyon Wedding

What a day it was yesterday! The wedding of Matt and Jess will be one to remember. 
Upon arriving to photograph Matt and his groomsmen getting ready I was informed that Matt's best man may have to run off at short notice - his wife was in labour!
The day started out sunny but by early afternoon it was raining and appeared to have set it. Whilst we waited for Jess to arrive at Vue on Halcyon, huddled under umbrellas, we were concerned about her getting soaked when she got out of the car. However, just like the magic, as soon as she pulled up the rain cleared and didn't return until later that night!
Within minutes of the reception beginning, the best man got the call and was off in a flash to take his wife to hospital, but not before he delivered a great speech.
Don't be scared of a little rain on your wedding day, in honestly makes for the best pictures!

Liz & Adam - Lyrebird Falls Wedding

Liz and Adam got married on Friday at Lyrebird Falls in Kallista. Both bride and groom began their day with nervous anticipation, but once they spotted each other as Liz walked down the aisle, they were smiling from ear to ear. While we didn’t get any sunshine trickling through the trees for photos, we had the always beautiful backdrop of the Conservation Reserve…and a fun bridal party to ensure there was never a dull moment.
Adam and Liz told me that most of their nerves were to do with their first dance. They had been having lessons and decided on a quite technical routine with two lifts. They absolutely nailed it!

Lesley & Gregg - Burnham Beeches Piggery Cafe Wedding

These two and this location were a match made in heaven and I’m so excited to share this little preview.
Lesley and Gregg are beautiful people inside and out. It was obvious that their kindness has reached many in their community by the amount of people that turned up to watch the ceremony. It was just lovely.
Lesley hand-made many of the decorations for the reception and Lesley and Gregg hand wrote cards to each of their guests to thank them individually for the way in which they had supported them or been an important person in their lives.
The guests enjoyed a decadent dessert table, drinks and dancing until the end of the night.
Thank you for having me there to photograph your amazing day!

Alyssa & Eric - Flowerdale Estate Wedding

Alyssa and Eric – I’m not sure you could find a couple more in love than these two. Eric admitted that marriage was far from his mind when he first moved in with Alyssa, but he quickly realised that he never wanted to be without her and therefore it was the obvious next step.
Their beautiful wedding was held at Flowerdale Estate in Strath Creek on Saturday surrounded by their closest friends and family.
As they had hired out the entire property, and many of their friends and family were staying on site, it felt like you were at a family home.
The day seemed so easy for these two, natural and effortless.
As I left the party it was only just beginning and I am sure it continued to be a fabulous night.

Laura & Shane - Forest Edge Wedding

Laura and Shane married on Saturday at Forest Edge Restaurant surrounded by friends and family. Many of them travelling from overseas and interstate for the special occasion.
They selected one very special friend each to have by their side on the day, and included family in their ceremony to make it extra special. Laura was escorted down the aisle by her twin brothers, and it was clear that they adore their big sister.
It was a wonderful party from beginning to end with the dancing starting even before the entrees were finished being served! The dance floor was only evacuated to listen to speeches, otherwise it was occupied all night long.
Shane and Laura opted for a sparkler exit and spent a couple of days with their international guests before they head off on their honeymoon tomorrow. Have a great time!

Lucia & Nick - Macedon Ranges Wedding

Lucia and Nick married on Saturday at Lucia’s most favourite place in the world – the property were she grew up, and her parents still reside, in Gisborne.
They wanted nothing more than to get married and have a brilliant party with their friends and family. I overheard Lucia say that she kept seeing all of her favourite people and it was like the best party ever, just for her…and then she remembered that’s exactly what it was – and for Nick as well, of course!
Their ceremony was sweet and simple and Lucia walked down the aisle to the beautiful voices of her sisters. The guests gasped when they began to sing and I don’t think there was a dry eye there!
The reception delivered some hilarious speeches and I imagine many woke with sore cheeks this morning from all of the laughing. It was a truly happy occasion.
Wishing you both all the very best, thank you for having me there!

Katie & Jack - Brunswick Food Store Wedding

Jack and Katie met at Uni. A Melbourne boy and a girl all the way from Drouin.
During their ceremony it was mentioned several times that they wanted to bring people together with their marriage, welcome family and friends into their home and be surrounded by the people they love. It was obvious that they already do this by the fact that they had filled St Hilary’s Church, had many people standing at the back AND had several others in an adjoining room watching on a screen. There was a lot of love for these two.
They enjoyed their first meal together as husband and wife with their guests at The Brunswick Foodstore. An amazing venue with a laid back feel.
Katie and Jack – wishing you both all the best for the future. I hope you have a great week away.

Rochene & Ant - Spirit Station Pier Wedding

On a Friday, these two lovely people got married!
With many travelling from interstate and overseas it made sense to have a Friday wedding so everyone could enjoy a long weekend together.
Antony started the day a little unconventionally by getting a tattoo on his ring finger! With the support of his best man, he was very brave 😉 They met up with Ant’s brothers for a beer before the event.
Rochene enjoyed the company of her bridesmaids, mother and mother-in-law at an apartment in the city before heading to the rooftop for champagne.
The ceremony and reception were held at Spirit Station Pier in Port Melbourne. It was a stunning day, albeit a little windy but Ro’s dress made the most of it by dancing beautifully to the wind during the ceremony.
The couple enjoyed the night by sharing food and laughs with those they love most and they were just happy to have them all together.
It was wonderful wedding and I am so pleased to have been a small part of it.
