I love weddings that are more about the couple than the wedding itself. Felicity & Luke are pretty laid back and love having a great time. So when it came to their wedding day nothing could really go wrong.
Linea Hairdressers in Croydon was a very good choice of locations for some candid shots. There's something about brickwork which always gets me. Then we headed off to a house nearby for some photos of the dress, shoes, and bridesmaids.
The ceremony was held at Maroondah Federation Estate. The large windows, white walls, and polished floorboards make for a very bright environment which is great for photographs. The courtyard outside also offers some great options for posed portraits and plenty of space for group photos.
The bridal party then traveled down the road to one of my all time favourite places, Schwerkolt Cottage in Mitcham. I like this place so much I even made a virtual tour of it. I shoot at this place heaps - it really is a hidden gem.
As sunset approached we traveled to Madeline's Tea House in Jells Park. This place is particularly photogenic for lunch-time functions and evening functions in summer. In winter you would lose some of the 'pop' that the colourful backdrop of Jells Lake provides. The reception had excellent music, great food, and all-round good vibes. My highlight was definitely the sister-in-law's speech!
Now I'd like to think of myself as relatively intellectual (I've spent a few too many years at uni), but someone will have to educate me on what the word 'dapper' means!
Slightly awkward but not to worry...
And another nice comment, just to make me feel a little fuzzy
And of course some praise for the mother of the groom!
How were the bridesmaids looking?
Congratulations to Felicty & Luke!
