It was lovely to be back for another Immerse Winery wedding, this time to celebrate the union of Jess and Michael – it seemed like a long time ago they booked with me, and when I checked it was, all the way back in January! Almost a year on and it was great to catch up with them again for their big day.
Preparations were at family homes for both of them – which was super handy for all of us, as they were literally walking distance from each other in Eltham.
Then it was on to Immerse, with stunning views from the top of the property always a highlight for shots afterwards. I can’t claim credit for the champagne – that was Michael’s idea! And having the ceremony out in the garden was the perfect choice for a bright sunny Melbourne summer day.
The first Tuesday in November is an important day on the calendar, and no more so than this year – because it was the day of Jessica and Tarek’s amazing Sandhurst Club wedding!
I caught up with the guys for an express getting-ready session at Jess and Tarek’s place, and we also headed out to a nearby park to get a couple of shots with their cute little Biscuit.
Then it was across to Murrumbeena to where the Jess and her lovely bridesmaids were getting ready, along with her family, in their beautiful family home. It made a great spot for some dress shots, hanging up against the wood panelling. After the girls were ready, we headed back to the park and some more shots with Biscuit, as well as some beautiful parasols.
Then it was down to the Sandhurst Club, and ceremony conducted by the lovely Julia from Julia’s Celebrancy Services – it was a very cosy ceremony with lots of smiles and laughter, and some very sweet vows shared between the about-to-be-newlyweds.
And the ceremony – well it had it all, from a beautiful cake made by the bride herself, lolly buffet, fireworks, a choreographed first dance – hard to imagine how they pulled it all together on a short timeline, but it was such a brilliant night with lots happening and smiles all round.
Hope you like the shots and congratulations again Jess and Tarek!
