St Johns Church and Quat Quatta reception – Katie & James
Congratulations to Katie and James who were married in a late ceremony at St Johns Church followed by a reception at one of my favourite Melbourne wedding venues Quat Quatta.
We’d always known that it was going to be a push for time and light with a late ceremony and reception shortly after wards, so I’m thankful Quat Quatta was the reception venue as it is full of gorgeous spots for beautiful wedding photography.
The day started at Jame’s parents house! I love that Bow ties are back in vogue! James and his groomsmen looked amazing.
Unlike previous weddings I’ve been at before, where the groomsmen have had to refer to YouTube to save the day with the tying of their bow ties, James father and mother helped the boys tie them with ease! It was a nice touch with James sporting his Dads great grandfathers cuff links, Wow what an amazing and special thing to have on your wedding day!
From the boys house we traveled to South Yarra where the girls were getting ready, at the magnificent Olsen hotel, which was a fantastic location for bridal preparation shots not to mention only being just down the road from the church.
The funny thing was that as I arrived at the hotel I saw another photographer leaving the room next door. With a small amount of chatting I discovered that his couple were also getting married at St John’s in Toorak, I did keep this to myself as I did not want to fluster the girls getting ready. The girls were super relaxed and enjoying the afternoon when we arrived. Katie even said how relaxed she felt. She looked amazing! Im still priding myself on getting the twins names right most of the time…
James and Katie were naturals! We had already had an engagement shoot previously which I think helped them to be more relaxed on the day! We got lots of amazing shots even with little time and light. It was very low light so we added additional lighting to some of my favourite spots in and around Quat Quatta including using additional lighting to capture the request of a group shot!
Well done and congratulations guys. We hope you’re having a great honeymoon in Thailand, from Andrew and all of us at Noble Photography.
