Last Saturday I spent the day with Abbyrose and Jason photographing their classic Melbourne wedding, featuring St Patrick’s Cathedral and The Hotel Windsor. What could be more Melbourne than those two iconic locations?

St Patrick’s Cathedral and The Hotel Windsor
At around 7.45am I arrived at Jason’s parents’ house in Attwood, over in Melbourne’s north western suburbs. When I say “over”, I mean over the other side of town – I’d left home at around 5.50am to get there in time. That’s what happens when you have a midday wedding!
After preparations I headed down to where the lovely Abbyrose, Carlie and Erin were getting ready, just a few minutes away in Greenvale. With the dresses already hanging up and ready for their spotlight, it took us no time to get the detail shots done, leaving lots of time for portraits with the beautiful girls and family. I could tell it was going to be a great day because everyone was just so kind and easy to work with – the kind of wedding day that is just an absolute pleasure to photograph.
Then it was on to St Patrick’s. Despite having been there many times I’d never photographed a wedding there, and I thought it was going to be quite dark. But I soon learned that I’d never been there with the lighting switched to “wedding” mode! With the altar absolutely beautifully and evenly lit, it was not problem at all to get some gorgeous shots of the ceremony, which was traditional as you’d expect.
After a group shot we released the 154 guests on central Melbourne and headed to a few locations chosen by Abbyrose and Jason around the CBD, and then back to the Windsor for a rest and some more shots on the staircase before the epic reception in the Grand Ballroom.
I had an absolutely awesome day working with Abbyrose and Jason, Carlie, Erin, Matt and all their family and friends, and it was a special pleasure to meet and work with Steven Beck from Steven Beck Media.
