Over the last six months, I am grateful to have gotten to know the lovely Kelly as we discussed her upcoming wedding. Leading up to her special day, she remained calm and relaxed throughout the entire planning process.
One day I met with both Kelly and her fiancé, Craig, at their work; she excitedly shared links to the venue with me, as well as different vendors she would be using. I already felt confident that this ceremony and reception would be one to remember.
As the day finally approached, Melbourne was not turning on the weather! Two days prior to the wedding, I received a call from Kelly. Even during the week of her wedding, she still seemed so calm. Although things were not going exactly as she had planned, she still managed to laugh through it.
The wedding day finally arrived and I felt so excited to see Kelly and Craig again. We began the photography shoot at the Private Registry offices in South Yarra. They had a small and intimate wedding ceremony with their parents and children.
A family session followed and then we decided to get a few quick shots in the garden behind the registry offices. These turned out beautifully, as the sun decided to come out and shine down on them. Kelly and Craig were both so relaxed and clearly elated by their union.
We all giggled as we took the last few shots and then crammed into my small car. We headed to the Docklands for the lovely reception area. As we drove, we all noted how lucky we were that it still hadn’t rained!
The sunset looked gorgeous; we took advantage of its beauty and included it in our shots upon arrival. I then took detailed shots of the venue, which looked amazing. I then walked around and took some candid guest shots to capture the day’s atmosphere.
As the guests still had not seen the bride and groom, it was wonderful to see all of their expressions as they walked into the room. So much joy and happiness instantly filled the room; you could just feel the love radiating off of everyone. Kelly and Craig looked so pleased to see everyone and celebrate.
The reception was full of dancing and laughter, as everyone clearly enjoyed themselves. Fabulous speeches took place, which were very well received! The DJ/MC did a great job of making sure everything ran smoothly and on time. It was such a fun night, and you can see the joy in every shot!
I just wanted to say a big congratulations to Kelly and Craig. Thank you for being so easy to work with, and also for being so calm and gracious on your special day. Kelly, your laugh is infectious and it was great to share this with you both!
Best of love in your lives together xx
