Caitlin & Chris met completely by chance through family about 2 years ago, and have been inseparable ever since! Chris proposed to Caitlin on New Years Eve last year, somewhere in the middle of the ocean on a cruise. Being the organised person she is, Caitlin was already booking things in for the wedding as soon as they arrived back in Melbourne.
Laura from Weddings of Desire was styling their day, and I couldn’t wait to see what she had put together! A beautiful archway made of white floaty fabric and tied together with gorgeous Peonies made the most perfect setting to say their vows under, in the garden at Gladioli Restaurant in the small country town of Inverleigh. After the ceremony, the bridal party and I walked next door for a few photographs in the nearby orchard. It was 34 degrees by then, but nobody was complaining! I loved how easy going, happy and relaxed everyone was!
The reception was held at The Pier in Geelong Harbour. Tables were dotted with candles and little rose pots, love quotes by Mark Twain further helped to emphasis a romantic vibe for the evening. Caitlin changed into a beautiful ‘Grace Loves Lace‘ Dress part way through the evening, which was a fun surprise for everyone. The Pier is completely surrounded in water, so it was a beautiful view to watch the sun setting over the water, whilst listening to hilarious and emotional speeches, eating fresh seafood, tucking into an amazing dessert bar, and dancing the night away. Caitlin & Chris, thank you for having me. I know you both have a wonderful future ahead xx
Rachel and Brent met each other in the most unlikely of places, their local supermarket! Rachel appeared visibly frustrated while searching for a specific brand of soup, until a knight in shining armour (Brent), assisted her in locating the soup, and preceded to ask Rachel if she would like to have coffee… and the rest, is history. It just goes to show you can meet the love of your life in very unexpected places!
Rachel and Brent chose to marry in the beautifully romantic setting of Rippon Lea Gardens, with a vision of creating a day with a polished hollywood regency vibe. Their guests travelled from all corners of the globe, and it was as much a celebration of the people they loved, as it was for the love they had for each other. I was so blessed to capture this gorgeous day, and you can imagine I was on cloud 9 with the abundance of Peonies everywhere! Rachel and Brent, thank you for having me. I hope you are having an amazing start to your 6 month honeymoon around Europe! xx
Shiu & Mun-Yi planned a gorgeous celebration for their wedding last weekend, which I was privileged to capture! With 60 of their closest friends and family, the day was bright, fun, and beautifully intimate. In the morning, there was a small tea ceremony at Mun-Yi’s parents place in St Kilda. Shiu then changed into her gorgeous Suzanne Harward Gown, and drove to Gardens House in the Royal Botanical Gardens to met a very excited Mun-Yi, in a private part of the garden for their First Look.
After a few photographs with their bridal party, (I love how Shiu had her 3 sisters as bridesmaids – just like I did!) it was time to say their vows. Because all the photographs were finished, they were free to enjoy champagne and canapes with their valued guests on the lawn, just outside the open marquee. The night was a perfect balmy temperature for this, and everything looked amazing! Shiu & Mun-Yi have gone to Finland to see the Northern Lights for their honeymoon! Such a unique and amazing idea. Congratulations you two. xx
