After the ceremony, a walk and a drink down Church Street.

Part Two - After the ceremony there is no shoot, simply a couple of essential family photos and we are off walking down Church Street for drinks at Public House, then dinner at Church Street Enoteca. The speeches and dancing are to come.

Feature Wedding - Michelle and Chris - Lindenderry, Red Hill.

In brief, these are the words I use to describe my wedding photography - celebratory (because weddings are), natural (because you want to look like your best self), editorial (that means great details, some storytelling and without filters), photo-journalistic (because it's an event and not a photo shoot).  There's more, generally about no time wasting, taking the day as it comes, and getting some formal family shots, but overall I ninja around, mingle, chat, keep it flowing and find great moments of the people you love and care about.

Michelle and Chris had a fabulously celebratory wedding, in a stunning garden setting, with a great band (yes get the brass section, it makes a difference), and just to keep me on my toes, a late night swim.

A wedding that mixed the formal and the informal so very, very well.

Listening to Melissa Auf der Maur and Prince this week while putting the finishing touches on this amazing Melbourne wedding. A wedding that managed to mix the formal and the informal so very, very well. Here's a little sequence of photos that I love.

Before we walked to Church Street Enoteca.

Part 1. A small selection of photos from a very local Richmond wedding. We walked everywhere, St Ignatius for the ceremony, Public House for the drinks, and Church Street Enoteca for the reception. The preparation shots were planned for 'Flex' the big, softy wonder dog only, with bridal party photos to fit while walking from venue to venue. A wedding and a non-wedding, with a couple that kept the 'weirdness' to a minimum so everyone could share the moment and have a good time. Cheers.
