Aimee and Daniel's wedding - The Prince Deck, St Kilda

On a warm night in Melbourne there is no finer place for a party than The Deck at The Prince in St Kilda. Aimee and Daniel had a cocktail party wedding, the ceremony was conducted with verve by Jon von Goes, followed by champagne, cold beer and groovy tunes by Johnny Wonderpants (the band). Nice.

it's a wine, wine world - mandala estate, yarra valley

I've been too busy the last few weeks to really blog much, but there are weddings to share that I'll post very soon. In the meantime here's a few shots from a recent shoot at Mandala Wines in the Yarra Valley. Mandala is a great place to visit, beautiful wines and super food. Head up on the weekend and check them out! Cheers.

Suong and Robert's wedding - Stokehouse, St Kilda.

I think that wedding venues that are not wedding venues are often the best places for a wedding. This goes for most other parts of the wedding as well - photographers, florists, cakes, cars and so forth. Why do I think this? Well people who specialise in weddings tend to do things the 'proper' (read 'cliche') wedding way, and tend to cookie cut your wedding into shape.

Well Suong and Robert had a wedding that was also not a wedding. They got ready together, then meet up with me for a short photography session in the city, before heading to the fabulous Stokehouse in St Kilda for the ceremony and reception. The ceremony was short and sincere, with some great work by celebrant Janet Hussey, followed by drinks and a memorable Stokehouse dinner with lots of photos of the guests.
