Rachael and Amon’s Fitzroy Wedding 31.03.2014

Tears of happiness, that’s how much we love this Melbourne wedding.

The stunning couple wed at the Good Shepherd Chapel where Rachael’s sister-in-law, Katie, sang ‘Fools Rush In’ as the bride walked down the aisle in a gown made by Melbourne couture designer Helen Manuel. Amon waited for her at the end of the aisle in a custom Cerulean Blue Ralph Lauren suit and black bow tie. The colourful bridesmaids picked their own dresses, while the groomsmen wore a floral print Paul Smith shirt and bow-tie and suits from their own closets. After the nuptials, the couple were whisked away in a friend’s 1975 black mustang convertible for photos.

Oli Sansom Weddings captured the charming wedding and commented, “The inspiration behind Rachael and Amon’s wedding came from their combined personality traits. The whole day mirrored the type of people that they are. Rachael being a whimsical creative type and Amon being a sophisticated traditionalist type, they wanted a wedding that felt both formal and informal at the same time.”

The lovely bride used her background in graphic design to design the silk-screened poster-style invitations, the reception decor and the overall styling for the day. She used a loosely applied floral aesthetic to achieve a little bit of cohesion in the bridal party, and let the colour do the rest of the talking.

The charming reception was held at the Fitzroy Town Hall, which encompassed both a formal and informal vibe. The bridal party decorated the steps of the Town Hall in colourful streamers as guests arrived and greeted guests with the couple’s favourite cocktails – the French 75 and the Cadillac Margarita.

The inside of the hall was adorned with unstructured bouquets of wildflowers in jars designed by florist Emily Bourne, while colourful fruit and vegetables were laid out on the tables to mimic a Dutch still-life painting. Table numbers and candles were a quick DIY project that involved painting white numbers on jars and taping parchment paper around.

As for the food, the couple chose a delicious tapas menu created by Sorella Foods. The menu including some of the couples favourite dishes like meatballs, mac & cheese, and meredith dairy goats cheese. To save a bit on catering costs, the couple also asked family and friends to make an array of delicious deserts and cakes.

Kirby and Jonathan’s Melbourne Farmhouse Wedding 24.02.2014

Frankly, this Australian wedding induces happiness. It’s got an overload of rustic and vintage style inspiration and an abundance of creative genius behind it.

The lovely bride is Aussie, while her groom hails from England. This couple is proof that holiday romances can last, as they met in Greece while on working holidays.

They wed and held their reception at Emu Bottom Homestead, which is a charming historic farmhouse north of Melbourne.

One very talented lad captured the charming wedding; he goes by the name of Mark from Gold Hat Photography. Mark tells us, “The wedding reception and ceremony were held at a farmhouse 30 mins out of central Melbourne, Australia. The ceremony took place under candlelight in a barn, followed by a delicious meal, a live band and the reception in the farmhouse.”

Mark also tells us, “On the morning of the wedding, Kirby’s wedding dress zipper broke and it took all 4 bridesmaids and Kirby’s mother to fix it.” Wow, we think that’s quite the panic-inducing situation indeed. Luckily there was a resourceful bridal party at hand and a bride with nerves of steel. They all appear so utterly beautiful and unfazed during the hiccup. We love a relaxed bridal party and bride.

Alice and Dave’s Sydney Royal Botanic Garden Wedding 27.01.2014

We love effortlessly chic weddings and we can’t help but think that this couple speaks our language.

Alice and Dave tied the knot whilst surrounded by gorgeous flora in The Royal Botanic Garden at the Lion Gate Lodge. Drinks and their wedding reception followed shortly after at the charming Lion Gate Lodge.

Hilary of Hilary Cam Photography captured the wedding and recalls, “Alice and Dave’s wedding was so effortless to photograph. The entire day was a reflection of their personalities. The bridal party were playful and hilariously sarcastic yet grounded, supportive and caring.

Alice and Dave had thrown out the rulebook for their wedding, they didn’t want to spend their afternoon taking photos while their guests partied and drank all the beer, and so they reversed it. We had the location photos first, followed by a mid-afternoon garden ceremony, and late-lunch reception that went into the night.

We have never had a wedding where the groom rides a lion statue, a classy bride breaks character for half a minute to attack a sausage roll, and the wedding cake has a mystery biter as a matter of family tradition. This wedding was our kind of awesome.”

Our favourite things about this wedding are the gorgeous pastel bridesmaid dresses, the relaxed vibe, and that the bride wore a vintage dress borrowed from her grandma’s wardrobe.
