I was fortunate enough to have been recommended to Nicoletta and John to capture their wedding ceremony at their chosen church in Balwyn, and then shoot some bridal shots in a beautiful little hidden-secret park , before heading down the road for an awesome reception at their Merrimu Receptions wedding celebration.
Check out the shots, and read on below for a little more about Nicoletta and John’s big day.
It was an absolute pleasure to photography Belinda and Matt’s wedding last Friday at St Patrick’s Church Lilydale.
Here’s a little video slideshow – check out some more about the day and their sneak peek gallery below!
I had a final catch up with Belinda and Matt a few weeks ago to go over the last few things, and one of the things we discussed was the weather. It’s Melbourne, it’s Winter – possibly, on the day, it could be raining.
Being a weather nerd I had an eye on it all week, hoping it would be a bright sunny day for this lovely couple, but unfortunately Melbourne turned on the water works for us. They say it’s good luck to have rain on your wedding day – that’s what everyone said to Annie and I when it rained all day for us on our big day! But secretly I’ve always thought that’s just something people say to make the bride and groom feel better 😉
In any case, I don’t think much luck will be needed for Belinda and Matt – after many years together and with two very proud and happy sons watching on, they were married at St Patrick’s Church Lilydale surrounded by lots of friends and family.
Here is a sneak peek for Belinda and Matt – hope you love them and well done on being brave and getting out in the rain to get your shots – I hope I’ve done you justice! 🙂
Last weekend I headed across town to catch up with Ann and Tom for their wedding at St Joseph’s Port Melbourne. Having caught up with them and booked back in November last year, I knew the church had special significance for them, with a long history in their family of weddings, baptisms and other family celebrations having been held there. And personally I was looking forward to being there for a ceremony conducted by the inimitable Bob Maguire, and he didn’t disappoint 🙂
Preparations for Ann were at the home, with lovely bridesmaids Emma and Bernadette there to give her a hand getting ready.
Then it was on to St. Joseph’s Port Melbourne for the ceremony, with grey skies overhead and a pretty cold wind – it was really Melbourne weather. That, of course, didn’t detract from the warm and very sweet ceremony inside the church, where we also shot all the formal portraits with the church’s permission.
Post ceremony we headed out to RMIT, which is where Ann and Tom first met – I think they were lab partners at the buy klonopin time. Is this where I finally get to make the “must have been some great chemistry” joke? Read on below the video and gallery for some more about the shoot.
The reception was at the Taylors Lakes Hotel, where Steve Angelini did a brilliant job as professional DJ and Master of Ceremonies, doing a great job at keeping the dance floor full. Unfortunately he couldn’t prevent the bouquet ending up in one of the light fixtures … but that’s a story for another day.
Check out the images in the gallery below, and if you like the shots, please like us on facebook! 🙂
Ann and Tom – St Joseph’s Port Melbourne
Just a couple of quick notes on how the shoot at RMIT went. Although we all got there in the rain, and it continued to rain more or less throughout the shoot, Ann and Tom did brilliantly in the conditions. They moved fast between shots, were happy to work with me, and even though the dress did get a little wet, and it did get a little dark, I think we managed to get some great shots in the buy klonopin time we had available.
Hope you enjoyed them guys – congratulations again Ann and Tom 🙂
