Kathrine and Nick booked our wedding photography long in advance. The Melbourne couple got ready in the private homes of the families. Greek wedding traditions and lots of lots of music in both houses. The dress. OMG! The dress. The beautiful dress was from Jane Hill in Melbourne. (But we should not forget the beautiful bridesmaid’s dresses which you, unfortunately, can’t purchase as they were made by one of the bridesmaids … wow!). The dress was presented on a dressmaking mannequin in a light-filled room … the perfect space to get ready for a Greek wedding in Melbourne!
Greek Orthodox Church – St Catherine in Malvern
We have seen a few churches in Melbourne. St Catherine in Malvern has to be one of the most beautiful Greek Orthodox churches for a wedding in Melbourne. Massive chandeliers and lots of breathtaking decorations in gold make it a breathtaking scene. Plenty of space for lots of wedding guests. An impressive Greek church in Malvern, Melbourne.
The ceremony did not last too long and everyone lined up to quickly congratulate the newlywed couple.
Wedding Photography at the Prahran Hotel
After the family wedding photos in a park close to St Catherine church in Malvern, the bridal party ventured to the Prahran Hotel. Three black vintage cars made for a stylish transport option and lots of space for the whole bridal team.
After the wedding ceremony, the couple deserved a little break and the modern space in the Prahran Hotel was just stunning. The hotel just got recently renovated and the architecture with the stacked concrete pipes and central courtyard is bold and modern. An ideal venue for small and big parties. There are lots of private spaces and room for bigger groups.
A few cocktails, beers and some great food was served. Of course, we couldn’t resits using the space for a few wedding photos. The modern architecture just asks for some beautiful wedding photos. The vintage wedding cars parked directly in front of the Prahran Hotel and the couple had not far to walk before we all drove off to the big function.
A wedding at Leonda by the Yarra, Hawthorn
Plain white space, a glowing oversized LOVE sign, hundreds of guests, a perfectly decked out event space, a stylish bar, a fun photo shoot and a wonderful wedding couple. The ingredients for the perfect wedding party at this Hawthorn wedding venue.
The event space in Hawthorn at Leonda by the Yarra looked amazing. You have direct access to the Yarra river and Leonda by the Yarra is one of the biggest stylish event and wedding venues in Melbourne. The elegant venue has even a private jetty. Unfortunately, we did not have much of a sunset on this wedding day and we decided not to use the riverbanks for a photoshoot. But the modern entrance area is plain white and leaves plenty of space for wonderful simple shots. Just ideal for wedding photography and much suited for our couple.
After a quick freshen up in the bridal suite the couple made a big entrance and was warmly welcomed by all their guests (some travelled quite far to attend). Leonda by the Yarra created a delicious menu (yum). Emotional wedding speeches, cake cutting, the first dance, … but then the party started. As soon as the greek music played the dancefloor was packed and old and young was having fun. Crazy times. 🙂
A wonderful wedding … congratulations Katherine & Nick.Thanks for having us as your wedding photographers.
