Kathleen and Andrew’s beautiful church wedding at Our Lady of Victories Basilica

Hotel Windsor and Our Lady of Victories Basilica

On Saturday I was lucky enough to photograph Kathleen and Andrew’s wedding at the beautiful Our Lady of Victories Basilica on Burke Rd in Camberwell. Check out the images below, and read on below them for a bit more about the day.

 

Our Lady of Victories Basilica

The day started with some express preparations, as the wedding was being held at midday – the girls really need to get started early when it’s an early wedding!

Then on to the Basilica, which is under some renovations at the moment, but you’d never know that from looking at the building from the front, or inside. An absolutely beautiful and historic building.

After the Nuptials Mass conducted by Father Paul, we got a group shot and then headed out for a tour around Melbourne! Starting with the Royal Melbourne Botanical Gardens, Kerford Rd Pier, then Fitzroy Gardens and Treasury Place, and Parliament House – it was like a tour of awesome Melbourne wedding photography locations 🙂

And what would be a more fitting end than a reception at the beautiful Hotel Windsor on Spring St. To have been there two weeks in a row was brilliant – I’m sorry I’m not working there again this weekend.

Had a brilliant day with Kathleen and Andrew and looking forward to showing them all the finished shots in a week or so.

Jess and Ben’s amazing wedding at Pavilion McCrae Beach

Melbourne Wedding Photography - January 2016

On Saturday 9th of January I had my first wedding of 2016, and what better way to start the year than at the beach for Jess and Ben’s Pavilion McCrae Beach wedding.

Some “beach” weddings are more beachside, but not this one – absolutely ON the beach, complete with the general public looking on (and giving an awesome cheer at the right times 🙂 )

The trek through the sand dunes did raise a couple of issues – but nothing a few strong fellas and a sturdy improvised chairlift couldn’t fix – check out the images below and you’ll see what I mean.

Jess and Ben’s work over the last few years having taken them as far as Indonesia and New Zealand, it was great to finally meet them in person after a few extended phone chats and Skype sessions over the last year or so.

This wedding was originally scheduled for buy phentermine next weekend, until the unfortunate loss of The Baths at Sorrento forced a reschedule. But with the help of the lovely staff and friends at Pavilion McCrae Beach, a new date was found and all the plans went ahead from there.

Congratulations again Jess and Ben – what an awesome and fun day, hope you guys had a great time and enjoy this sneak peek 🙂

Michelle and Jeff, Deakin Lakehouse

Deakin Lakehouse Wedding

Deakin Lakehouse Wedding

Michelle and Jeff got married at Deakin Lakehouse in February 2014.

I had two wedding to cover down in Geelong on the same weekend in February 2014. Firstly down at Torquay, and then up to the Deakin Geelong campus.

Michelle and Jeff had booked me to cover their cute, cosy, intimate and very family-oriented ceremony.

Beautiful bride Michelle arriving in her bridal car.

Loved how Michelle and Jeff were framed in the pointed archway of the chapel for this shot.

The elegance of this dress was in it’s simple styling and beautiful thin straps – awesome.

I added some glow to this shot of the lovebirds on that little bench, with their reflection in the lake for which the place is named. It was lovely to see them from several hundred metres away, having a few quiet moments to themselves after all the rush that precedes any wedding.

The guests had headed up to the restaurant already, and they just had some time to chat and catch up a little bit – beautiful moment.
