Mary + Dave | Metropolis Events Wedding
Mary and Dave’s summer wedding was an amazing event. This made-for-each-other couple tied the knot in February at Metropolis Events in Southbank, Melbourne. I loved being a part of this wedding and capturing the beauty of Mary and Dave’s love on my camera.
Mary + Dave’s Melbourne Summer Wedding
It was a delight for me to work with Mary. Having photographed her before as a bridesmaid, it felt so nice to see her as a bride this time. Being around so many friends and familiar faces at her wedding, from the past weddings we photographed, was exciting for me.
I began photographing Mary before the ceremony. She spent some fun time with her bridesmaids and also her puppy before getting dressed for her big day. Mary and Dave exchanged letters and read them before the ceremony.
Mary’s bridal gown was a lovely Jane Hill number. It was embellished with pearly detailing and Mary looked ethereal in it. Her whole look exuded grace and beauty. She decided well to style her hair into beachy waves and leave them open. Meanwhile, Dave dressed up in a sharp Black suit, a white shirt underneath, and a black bowtie.
The ceremony was a simple yet elegant affair at the stunning St Ignatius Cathedral. I loved photographing Mary and Dave as they both wore a lovely smile on their faces throughout. They walked hand in hand and kissed each other. There were some really romantic moments I got a chance to capture. In between, I also photographed some beautiful portraits of Mary while the bridal party relaxed for a drink. The light streaming through the windows was amazing.
Mary and Dave did not forget to have fun with their wedding party on their special day. I loved it — how the couple took out time to enjoy some food and drinks with them while shifting photo locations. Mary and Dave enjoyed and shared a hearty laugh with the bridesmaids and the groomsmen. The bridesmaids looked beautiful in white while the groomsmen were suave in suits.
Wedding Photography at Metropolis Events
At the reception in Metropolis Events, the party that kicked off from the talented DJ Eddie Rinaldo as Mary and Dave entered the room was one amazing moment that impressed all the guests. Florals by Wild Flos were another fabulous thing the guests loved.
The event proceeded with the speeches and the newly-weds’ romantic first dance. The floor was then opened for guests to enjoy dancing and celebrate the wedding.
Being a wedding photographer brings you so much joy. When you have photographed family members in the past and get to see them again, it really makes you feel like a part of their family. Very special!
Mary and Dave, I thank you so much, for giving me the opportunity to be your wedding photographer. Theodore & Co. loves you. Have a happy life ahead!
