Cassandre and Alex’s beautiful chapel wedding at Bram Leigh Receptions

Bram Leigh Receptions Wedding

On a beautiful and typically changeable Autumn Melbourne Saturday in April 2017, Cassandre and Alex celebrated their love and tied the knot at their Bram Leigh Receptions wedding.  With the ceremony taking place in the sweet little chapel, friends and family filled every bit of space to see Cassie and Alex married.

Preparations were at a family home for Alex and the groomsmen, while Cassie got ready with the girls and her lovely family at a cute B&B nearby.

Then it was on to Bram Leigh Receptions for the ceremony, photos and the extremely upbeat reception. And when you’re a former national champion Dancesport star, how could you leave out an awesome choreographed first dance with Dad. Dad definitely had some moves – I haven’t actually asked Alex about this, but seeing what Cassie and her Dad did on the dancefloor, personally I would have wanted to stay on the sidelines! I’m not sure he was even in on the dance though, because as soon as it was over it was awesome to see him jump to his feet and congratulate them on the great performance.

Congratulations again Cassandre and Alex – hope you like the shots! 🙂

Megan and Mark’s stunning wedding celebration overlooking Yarra Ranges Estate

Yarra Ranges Estate Wedding

It was an honour to have been asked to photograph Megan and Mark’s reception and at Yarra Ranges Estate wedding, and to have the opportunity to shoot a first-look at well is always an extra special moment.

Mark I have known for a long time – we went to school together (although a few years apart, and too many years ago!). When he contacted me to have a chat about the possibility of me covering his wedding to the lovely Megan, it was great to meet her and catch up with him again, as it had been a few years since we were in touch on anything other than Facebook.

So we caught up, and after chatting things through, it was awesome to hear that they wanted me to cover the wedding at the beautiful Yarra Ranges Estate. We even had the opportunity to do a pre-wedding side effects celexa medication shoot in the Redwood forest up here near home (more to be shown on that later … )

Breakfast and prep with the guys, preparations for the girls at an absolutely stunning B&B in Kallista, followed by a first-look and then on to an amazing wedding, surrounded by friends and family – absolutely brilliant.

Here’s a sneak preview Megan and Mark – hope you love them, and congratulations!

The venue was the Yarra Ranges Estate, and the weather turned out one of those Melbourne Autumn days perfect for a big-sky wedding – http://yarrarangesestate.com.au/

The touching ceremony was conducted by the very lovely Bronte Price, who was an absolute pleasure to work with – http://gaycelebrant.melbourne/ or http://bronteprice.com.au/

Donna and Justin’s beautiful celebration at Gum Gully Farm

Gum Gully Farm Wedding

In March 2017 I was asked to photograph Donna and Justin’s big day, capturing their Gum Gully Farm wedding celebration. And what a lovely celebration it was, with an intimate group of family and friends on hand to witness their touching ceremony.

With Donna and Justin keeping things very low-key, we kept the photography to just include the ceremony itself, and a short portrait sessions afterwards. And with the Melbourne Autumn weather threatening, the ceremony was moved inside the chapel, but I think that might have been a great move – the chapel is just so cosy!

After the ceremony we had a chance to visit celexa side effects night sweats with some of the lovely deer at the farm, which was a highlight for all the kids in the family as well as (I suspect) Donna and Justin – they couldn’t take the smiles off their faces if that is any indication 🙂

Congrats Donna and Justin!
