The families help out
Bianca and Mark are very close to their families, it's a joy to see them all together sharing laughs and love. It was natural for them to choose Bianca's family home as the location for their family oriented wedding ceremony, such a beautiful back yard and plenty of shade from the late summer sun.
Both loving blue and the tropics made choosing colours easy, and royal blue looked BEAUTIFUL against the gorgeous couture silk gown that Bianca had been dreaming of for years, as well as matching their little miracle daughter Eva's eyes.
Although they had already started their family, Bianca and Mark chose to get ready separately, building a little anticipation, and allowing them to spend the morning with their families.
The all important vows
Mark was the epitome of the nervous groom, he wanted a perfect day for his little family, and he checked all the details three times. No need to worry, Bianca had found the man of her dreams, and she wasn't letting the small things get in the way of becoming his wife. From the gorgeous personalised cart that Eva sat in on her way down the aisle, to making sure their unity candle was protected from any breeze, she had it covered, and when the nerves finally hit her, Mark was by her side with his calming kiss on her hand, and love prevailed until smiles were beaming all around as they walked back up the aisle as man and wife.
Like many Melbourne newlyweds, a trip to Fitzroy Gardens for the wedding portraits was next on the list, if it's one thing Melburnians love, it's this place!! So many beautiful spots to take photos with their wedding party, and then some time alone with each other to enjoy that 'just married' feeling, something that we, as photographers, make sure that EVERY single one of our couples gets plenty of! Then it was back in the limousine to head off for a great reception and party to celebrate!
A beautiful autumn afternoon greeted the newlyweds on their arrival, and the staff had really outdone themselves to make everything absolutely perfect, but it was the handmade touches that stole the show, until a beautiful sunset put the cherry on top!
Emotional speeches, followed by beautiful dances led to a night of celebrating, filled with laughter, love and joy.
