For many years Mark admired Fiona from a far, watching her perform at a restaurant where she regularly performed until the day that someone introduced them!
Surrounded by friends and family, Mark and Fiona were married at the lovely Butleigh Wootton located in Melbourne’s Inner East.
Our gorgeous bride Fiona and her bridesmaids made the most of the amazing bridal suite, using the space for getting ready, it also became the backdrop for some of our beautiful pre wedding photographs.
As the sun set the ceremony took place in the garden marquee, followed by photography using additional lighting techniques we were able to make the most of the beautiful gardens and architecture of this great venue.
Mark and Fiona made their grand entrance following the musical talents of some of the very talented quests. One by one they stood at their tables singing an impromptu piece of opera. It was like nothing I’ve ever seen! Amazing! Guests were later treated to the beautiful and moving voice of Fiona with a song dedicated to Mark.
Fiona works for Melbourne City Opera and has appeared in several productions including I Pagliacci for the Preston Symphony Orchestra, and Kismet, Carmen and La Bohème for Melbourne City Opera. She made her principal debut as Lola in Cavalleria Rusticana.
We were very honored to be part of this beautiful wedding and as Carrie the gorgeous maid of honor and lifetime friend of Fiona’s said it was also ‘a privilege to hear Fiona sing!’ Congratulations Mark and Fiona, thanks for being such a wonderful couple and a joy to work with. We wish you a lifetime of laughs, smiles and happiness together.
Thank-you to Hank our fellow photographer, colleague and friend and his beautiful wife Carrie for referring this amazing couple to Noble Photography.
