Nicholas and Rebecca were married at the beautiful Heide Museum of Modern Art located in Bulleen, Victoria. I was really excited when I booked this wedding – not only were they a young and fun couple but I was also really excited to be at Heide for Wedding Photography. I live relatively close to Heide and discovered it on a family outing with my kids. I have since photographed several Engagement Photography sessions and family portraits at this venue and couldn’t wait for the Wedding.
Nicholas and Rebecca are a wonderful couple from Sydney, Australia. I immediately had a liking for this couple from the very first contact from them. They had me laughing from the start and I knew they would be great to work with.
It was a scorcher of a day and as our gorgeous bride arrived, the cool change came through. It was a much needed change in the weather making it more pleasant for everyone. Unfortunately with the drop in temperature also came the wind but that’s Melbourne weather for you! Under the shelter of the amazing Oak Tree, the ceremony took place followed by family photos. As the guests enjoyed pre-dinner drinks, we set off exploring the amazing Heide’s Gardens and captured some beautiful images. We made the most of the beautiful gardens, sculptures, ornate doors and modern and historic architecture that Heide has to offer.
The reception was also at Cafe’ Vue at Heide which features floor to ceiling glass walls that open onto a private terrace. The food was amazing and the venue the perfect setting for the modern Coctail Reception. Nicholas and Rebecca did an amazing job styling their day. Rebecca’s beautiful lace dress by Karen Willis Holmes together with Nicholas in his stylish M.J.Bale Suit and Purple Tartan Tie was very chic and modern. The wedding flowers had hints of oranges and yellows that matched with their home made Bonbonerie finished with orange tartan ribbon. Small pots and sprays of flowers decorated the Cafe but mostly it was left fairly simple leaving the beautiful wedding venue as the feature.
Thank you to the wonderful staff at Heide for looking after us and, of course, to Rebecca and Nicholas for being such a fun, relaxed couple. Looking through the shots, Rebecca, there are very few where you don’t have a huge smile across your face or where you aren’t giggling. It’s nice to see! Thanks for having us as a part of your day and thanks for the wonderful feedback since the wedding! It’s comments and feedback like that that make me thankful for the kind of work I do! Regards Andrew
