Mary & Rob’s Wedding| Melbourne| Mike & Amy

November 23, 2014

Not to long ago now the very beautiful and vibrant Mary and Rob were married at the St Mary’s Armenian Orthodox Church in Surry Hill- Melbourne. It was an amazing Sunday afternoon – I loved every minute of this special day!! The ceremony was followed by family photos and then photos in a couple of locations throughout Melbourne.
The reception was hosted a Church 364 on Bridge Street in Richmond.

Mary and Rob met through a mutual friend who played cupid and introduced this adorable couple. It took Mary and Rob a couple of months for them to actually have their first date, but they finally did it and both knew that this was something special. By Mary and Rob’s second date she felt like she was home in the way Rob held her in his arms- these first and second dates lead them to the beautiful day I had the privilege of sharing and capturing for them.

I always love to ask a couple about their proposal on their wedding day…. Mary says:
“Rob proposed on the third anniversary of the day he asked me to be his girlfriend. We had just started living together in an apartment in Richmond. He bent down on one knee with flowers and a ring and said ‘Three years ago on this day I asked you to become my girlfriend and now I am asking you to become my wife”. He was the most nervous I have ever seen him!”

Planning a wedding is always a big task but can be very enjoyable. I asked Mary what she thought was the best part about planning the wedding:
Mary says:
I loved going into the stores and trying on all the beautiful wedding gowns, so many different styles and fabrics – just divine! I think I tried on about 20 dresses in total. I didn’t have long to pick my dress as I had left it a bit late, but I think that was a good thing because it meant I had to make a decision quickly and go with my instincts. I hadn’t considered an open back wedding dress before but I knew I wanted something a little bit different and when I tried this one on I knew it was the one. That night I had a vivid dream of wearing it, the next day I went back and purchased it.

Mary’s dress was absolutely perfect!! You looked amazing Mary and Rob looked rather dapper as well. Rob, Im really sorry that you were really unwell for your wedding but Im sure everyone agreed that you did so well.

Mary and Rob had a little advice for upcoming brides they wish to share with you all:
Stay true to your style and what reflects you as a couple. It’s easy to get caught up in the wedding hype as the industry is so big, with many expectations and some voices can be very persuasive. It’s ok to do it your way, follow your heart.

Here are a few memories and moments that we were able to capture for the gorgeous Mary and Rob. Thank you for trusting us with you memories. We loved every minute of it.
