Mel and Leigh’s Wedding | Yarra Valley | Mike & Amy Photographers

June 12, 2016

Recently in the Yarra Valley Mel & Leigh made their relationship offical and celebrated with family and friends. Mike and I both attended the wedding of Mel and Leigh and were delighted to capture their memories for them.

The wedding was held at none other then the Stones of the Yarra. A truley beautiful place to celebrate such a special occasion. Leigh prepared for the morning at their home while Mel did most of her preparations at the Stones.

Leigh and Mel did things a little different and opted to have a first look and capture most of their photos before the ceremony. The photos were all taken on the grounds of the vineyard. A very romantic location. I like this concept of the first look, as the couple can get the nerves out of their system and have the photos taken before making it all offical at the ceremony. The celebrations can then flow and guests aren’t kept waiting.

The ceremony was beautiful, lively and truly encapsulated Leigh and Mel as a couple. Meg from Raise Your Glass Ceremonies did a delightful job. would definately recommend the gorgeous Meg to any bride chasing a celebrant.

Drinks and canapes were enjoyed before entering the reception where the real party happened. The food was awesome and atmosphere amazing.

Thanks to the amazing team that made it all possible:

Ceremony Venue & Reception: Stones of the Yarra
Celebrant: Meg Marshall (raise your glass ceremonies)
Cake Supplier: Cherrytree Bakehouse
Florist: Red Earth Florist Kilsyth
Makeup artist: Emily Martin (souldeep makeup)

Jess and Matt’s Wedding | Melbourne | Mike & Amy

May 27, 2016

Mike and I have had one of the most rewarding wedding seasons this Spring/Summer just gone and we have couples like Jess & Matt to thank. Jess and Matt were married in April just gone. It was such a gorgeous day and was a real honour for us to be entrusted to capture their memories. It was a day filled with fun, laughter and much love not only between Jess and Matt but their families and friends also.

While I started my day capturing Jess getting ready Mike spent this time with Matt and the boys. Mike captured a few images of the boys at their hotel before visiting the grounds of Victoria Park- the home ground of Matt’s Beloved Team- the Magpies. A real highlight of Matt’s day having photos with his boys at one of his favourite places in Melbourne! The boys then headed to the ceremony.

Jess got ready in the Oslen in South Yarra. Such a gorgeous room that over looked Richmond and had a view of St Ignatius Church were Matt and Jess were to be married. The time with the bride and groom before the ceremony goes so fast and before long we were capturing a truly beautiful ceremony.

After the ceremony a quick group photo was captured before preceding with family photos. The formal photos of the day were taken in Richmond and on the grounds of Treasury garden’s and parliament house.

The sun and Autumn leaves were simply divine to photograph in- truly enhanced the beautiful souls that Matt and Jess are.

Thank you for trusting us with your memories. We loved capturing every minute of your day.

Matt & Jess’s amazing team for the day consisted of the following wonderful people:

Reception Venue: Church 364
Florist: Levian Events
Videographer: Video Boutique
Makeup & Hair: Cindy Siegemund
Cake: Kerryn Sweet Art Cakes

Victoria & Dale’s Wedding | Coffs Harbour | Mike & Amy

May 25, 2016

A few weeks back I travelled up to my home town of Coffs Harbour to capture the memories of a very special day for Victoria and Dale & their families. Not only did Victoria & Dale make their relationship official they had their gorgeous little boy christened and celebrated Victoria’s Dad’s 50th. Dale had family travel from overseas and Perth. It was truly a beautiful day.

I started the day with Dale and capture a few memories of him preparing for the day before. Dale got ready with his family and two groomsman. Victoria had got him little present. Dale was definitely touched by Victoria’s message to him.

It was soon time to head over to the girls. Victoria was surrounded by her family and close friends. It was such a nice atmosphere at the house with a lot of excitement. Grandma only thought that she was attending a christening so was very surprised to see Victoria’s wedding dress hanging when she walked in the room.

The ceremony was held at Sawtell Catholic Church. It was a beautiful ceremony. I even shed a tear as Dale sang to his gorgeous bride as she walked done the aisle. It was such a surprise of Victoria. Dale you did amazingly. Following the ceremony the christening was held and then the official papers from the wedding signed. Family photos were captured outside the church before we head to Sawtell Headland and main street for photos.

It was truly a special day. Loved every minute of capturing your special day. Thank you so much for trusting me with you memories.

Here are just a few gorgeous images from the day.

Jess and Ben’s Wedding | Harden, NSW | Mike & Amy

May 18, 2016

We’ve been a little slack with blogging of late so I do apologise! Something to do with the nine weddings we had in April mean we are a little behind with it.

I had the opportunity to travel to the small country town of Harden in NSW for the wedding of Jess and Ben. Having grown up in the country I always like travelling to rural towns and places for wedding, and enjoy the change of pace.

Ben and Jess married at the amazing Garangula Estate, they both got ready at different locations but the ceremony and reception were both held on the grounds and main club house of the estate.

The photo shoot was great fun, there were sheep, dogs and horses, all things that represent the area really well… It sure is sheep country out there! The locations for photos were on a bunch of different properties and made for some great variety and a bit of sunset chasing.

Here are a few photos from the day, hope you enjoy! Your images will be sent on USB very soon!

Tara & Nick’s Wedding | Melbourne | Mike & Amy Photographers

May 1, 2016

Tara and Nick had a beautiful wedding a few weeks back in the beachside suburb of Brighton in Melbourne, Victoria. The location of the ceremony was the Brighton Savoy, it was a really nice spot, so close to the beach and near to everything else needed. Tara and Nick had an intimate ceremony with their friends and family, some of whom had travelled some distance to be there.

Once the ceremony was over it was time to head to the beach for a quick photo shoot, with light fading fast we pumped the images out pretty quick but it was a lot of fun, the location was perfect and it wasn’t even windy… a relief because  it can get pretty windy along the coast!

After the photos it was to the reception for family photos and then time for the bridal party and guests to relax. Thanks for having us as part of your day Tara and Nick!

Here’s a few shots:-)

Jane & Seb’s Wedding | Melbourne | Mike & Amy

April 23, 2016

Last Friday Amy and I were privileged to be a part of Jane and Seb’s beautiful wedding. The day started off perfectly with Amy photographing the girls and myself with the guys, the both had apartments in South Yarra of Melbourne and the views were spectacular!

Jane looked stunning and so very happy, I love the shots of her in the car waiting to enter the church, her bridesmaids and her all looked so thrilled to be there. Once they entered the church you could see how happy and proud all of the family was, particularly both of their mums! Some of my favourite pics from the wedding are the candid ones of them.

Jane and Seb were married in the incredible St Ignatius church in Richmond, the architecture there is stunning and amazing for photos. After the ceremony we had perfect conditions to do family photos and then a photo shoot of just Jane, Seb and their bridal party.

We did the first few photos around the church and then headed to the city to capture the rest. There was so much to photograph, our couple looked amazing, the bridal party were so patient and accomodating and the city itself as always was beautiful.

The reception was held at Albert Park, and it was  time then for the photos to finish and the party to begin!

Here’s some photos of the day!

Tracey & Greg| Opal Cove Resort | Mike & Amy

April 22, 2016

Not to long ago I had the pleasure of attending the wedding of Tracey and Greg and was delighted to be able to capture their memories of the day. Tracey was having her hair and makeup done at Opal Cove resort. While Amy from Eminay hair did her magic and the girls had their makeup down I capture some images before heading over to Greg who prepared for the day with his boys. 

The ceremony was held on the lawns at Opal Cove Resort overlooking the lagoon. We were super lucky with the weather, it did rain just before the ceremony but by the time the ceremony was due it had stopped and Tracey was able to work down to aisle while Greg and Jack their beloved staffy waited for her. 

Following a beautiful ceremony family and friend photos were taken and then all their photos were taken around the resort. 

I’m excited to share a few more images from the day. 

Thanks for an awesome day guys and a big congratulations to you both.
