Hair and makeup on High St Northcote, ceremony in Fitzroy Gardens, reception at Mountain Goat Brewery, and taking a tram to the reception (complete with confused Saturday-afternoon randoms offering their thoughts and opinions) – does it get any more Melbourne than that? I had a brilliant day last Saturday photographing Jess and Zac’s awesome celebration with their friends and family – thanks to you both for having me there to capture it for you.

We started off the day with me meeting the girls at Akabu in Northcote, where they were finishing up hair and makeup. It’s always great, and a little bit different, to have the opportunity to pop in for a while on the preparations if they’re off-site.
Then I acted as chauffeur for the first time in a while, as we all moved back into the city for the girls to finish getting ready before heading down to the Fitzroy Gardens for the ceremony.

This isn’t the first time I’ve had Melbourne’s trams involved in wedding shoots – but it’s absolutely the first time I’ve actually travelled on the tram with the bridal party to the venue. With our newlyweds regularly travelling into work together on the tram, they were keen to make it a part of the day.
And then on to the always awesome Mountain Goat Brewery, for drinks, dancing and celebration. And an awesome grazing table.
In mid November 2016 we photographed Lauren and Carlos’s simple and beautiful Melbourne Registry Office wedding, and then headed into the heart of Fitzroy for a lunchtime reception at Charcoal Lane – with guests transported by Bike Rickshaws no less. Does it get any more Melbourne than that?
On Saturday I had the pleasure of capturing Christina and Marc’s wedding at All Smiles Melbourne Waterfront, which we’d been planning and discussing for around 18 months or so. A couple of changes of dates hadn’t managed to get in the way of it, in fact I think I initially had them booked with another photographer when it turned out I was available on their new date.
So it was brilliant to be able to meet up with them for preparations at Crown Towers, and then just a short drive across to All Smiles Melbourne Waterfront for the the ceremony in front of the amazing view out across the bay.
The weather was an absolute killer, in fact it snowed on the hills up here near home, so I reckon Christina and the girls did brilliantly well even to get outside for some shots. And when the rain stopped later in the evening we were able to use the sculptures just outside the venue for some night shots which I knew they were keen on.
Hope you enjoy the preview – congratulations again Christina and Marc! 🙂
