Erin and Chris

Here is another one of my favourite weddings from last year (I’m a slow blogger, okay?). Erin and Chris’s wedding wasn’t only beautiful to shoot, but THEY were beautiful, funny and wonderful to work with, quite simply because they are two of the happiest, most fun-loving people I’ve met. I think you’ll be able to tell from these pictures that these two enjoy a laugh. They even let me fulfill my lifelong wedding photography dream of photographing portraits in a supermarket. Thank you Erin and Chris!

Now here all the details that I can remember: Erin wore a Lisa Ho dress and her bridesbabe wore Carla Zampatti. I’ve been seeing a lot of stunning Carla Zampatti dresses at weddings (on brides and bridesmaids), so there’s my hot tip for brides on the lookout right now for an elegant, cool dress. (If you’re after a Lisa Ho number like Erin’s you might have to search harder as I think she’s shut up shop).

Cecilia Fox made the beautiful floral creations. I’m always excited when I hear she’s doing one of my weddings and on this day she didn’t disappoint! The (loose) theme was “winter going into spring” and she did a beautiful job of injecting colour into an August day.

We can’t forget the groom’s shoes! They are from Loake Shoemakers (fancy!).

Their ceremony was held on the balcony at the Melbourne Town Hall and their reception was at Hare and Grace.

Enjoy this fun, colourful wedding!

Remembering Stokehouse

As many of you know, Melbourne lost one of its best restaurants this weekend, when St Kilda’s Stokehouse was destroyed by fire on Friday night.

Not only was it a brilliant restaurant, but it was also one of Melbourne’s best wedding reception venues – definitely in my top 3. It was visually beautiful, had amazing food (I ate the best steak ever at one wedding I shot there) and the service was always fantastic.

I am happy to hear that the owners vow to return Stokehouse to its former glory, and in the meantime I want to share some of my favourite photographs taken at weddings over the years.

2013

As 2013 draws to a close I’d like to say a big thank you to all my wedding clients from this year. My 2013 has been great, and I feel so lucky to have found clients to work with who really fit my style and personality.

Here are some of my favourite images of each couple I photographed this year.

Have a safe and happy 2014 and I look forward to posting many more wedding photos over the coming months!

Sophie and Sam

I’ve been meaning to post this wedding on my blog for a while – the beautiful wedding of Sophie and Sam. How gorgeous is Sophie’s orange dress? And wait for it – there’s a costume change later on! This first dress is from Carla Zampatti, and Sophie’s gorgeous party dress is from Colette Dinnigan. Sam looked fabulous too but once again I forgot to ask the groom where he got his suit! I do know that Camberwell Market Florist is responsible for those beautiful floral arrangements.

Sophie and Sam were married in the backyard of the house Sam grew up in, which is just so special, I think. We took pre-ceremony portraits along the river bank where Sam used to play as a kid. Again, pretty special! Celebrant Melanie Lunny conducted a beautiful ceremony, then we headed over to Stokehouse in St Kilda for the reception, and some more portraits by the water.

The night was filled with love and laughter, and despite it being held on the day of our national election, nobody discussed politics at all! We remained blissfully ignorant and merry. I hope you enjoy these pictures.

Jodi and Alan

Here is a sweet Autumn wedding from earlier this year, held at one of my favourite Melbourne venues – Gardens House in the Royal Botanic Gardens. It’s a private little place tucked away from the rest of the Botanic Gardens, and you really do get the feeling you’re in your own secret garden. Jodi and Alan’s wedding was small and intimate and I felt like one of the family. It helped that their family and friends were just as fun-loving and kooky as me!

Jodi looked gorgeous in her vintage-inspired dress, perfect for a daytime garden party theme. I am a little obsessed with her hairpiece too. Flowers were by the always fabulous Flowerjar. And Jodi and Alan were lucky enough to have Jodi’s aunt Suzanne Katz perform their beautiful ceremony.

Keeping a wedding small is a great way to ensure you get to chat with every guest, and take in everything on the day. I hope you enjoy these pictures of what was a beautiful, intimate celebration of love!
