Rebecca & James

There were so many highlights to this awesome wedding that is genuinely difficult to sum it up into a few sentences. Beck completely stole the show in her stunning red gown which shone against the epic industrial goodness that is The Substation in Melbourne.

For their portrait session, Beck had organised access to the Steam Railyards in Newport where she volunteers. I love a quirky passion and get so pumped when we can incorporate something so personal into a couple's wedding portraits. Although the original plan didn't work out, we talked our way into the railyard sheds where Beck & James climbed up onto Beck's favourite steam engine (I love that she has a favourite steam engine) for some portraits which came out looking like stills from a movie. I pretty much had to pinch myself. Amazing clients, epic backdrop, good light - check, check, check. So happy for these two.

Lanie & Rasmus

These legends live in Perth but decided to tie the knot in Rasmus' home country of Denmark, in a small ceremony & celebration with their closest friends and family. Words cannot describe how special and intimate their day was or how incredible it feels as a photographer to be invited to fly across the world to capture a day like this, filled with love for their little family, heartfelt speeches, crazy incredible Danish wedding customs and the prettiest backdrop imaginable on the canals in Copenhagen.

I'd heard rumours that the Danes have some great wedding customs and I was not disappointed. From standing on chairs at the reception, to the groom's socks being cut right through to the fantastic tradition that every time the groom leaves the room, all of the men have to run over and kiss the bride. Highly entertaining, heartfelt and incredibly special to be part of - Lanie & Rasmus knocked it out of the park.

Irini & Kosta

I love a traditional wedding with a modern twist. Irini & Kosta created a beautiful day around their families and friends, and still managed to keep things completely unique and low key. Irini's dress was beyond epic & her killer florals from Floretta By Grace. Their reception at Luminare was only outdone by the incredible sunset which set the backdrop to the evening.

One of the best things about my job is getting to work with couples and their families, and I could not have felt more welcome by Irini and Kosta's amazing families. Their best man Theo cooked up a storm that morning and even made me a little doggy bag of homemade greek pastries and some cake to eat on my way to Irini's house. After the ceremony we took a walk through South Melbourne's beautiful laneways and ended up at St Ali for a coffee and a glass of bubbles - the perfect Melbourne wedding.

Carla & Matt

This seriously sauve Black Tie do was the shizz. Not wanting to miss a moment of their party, Carla & Matt decided to do their portrait session before the ceremony so they could slide straight into the reception. I gotta say it's a great way to do the day, and it gave us the opportunity to do a 'first look' which is always amazing - the look on the groom's face when he sees the bride for the first time gets me every time. 

Bride Carla made an incredible entrance to the sweet sounds of Kayne, she absolutely rocked her Vera Wang gown down the aisle at The Deck - Circa to her Matt. My favourite part of the night was sneaking these 2 off for a twilight portrait session on the streets of St Kilda where we captured some moody nighttime vibes, before Matt & Carla headed back to their party. Oh and the guests of honour - 2 Grandpas, both aged 94 and looking dapper in their bow ties. Heart melting.
