St Jude’s Catholic Church in Melbourne’s Scoresby was the obvious choice for Brad and Shaeli to hold their nuptials as, for Shaeli, she has fond memories of frequently the church growing up. It was important for Brad and Shaeli to be married in the Catholic faith with the priest who was connected to the family. I don’t think Brad could quite contain his emotion when he saw his stunning wife to be come towards him down the aisle! There were tears all round. What a beautiful service it was with real meaning, heartfelt readings and emotion.

When I first met these two gorgeous humans at a grungy bistro, I just knew they were my people! Funny and witty, yet hard working and earnest and never taking life too seriously, I had a ball getting to know this amazing couple!
Ever the romantic, Shaelli may have (strategically) forgotten her jacket on their first date, encouraging Brad to wrap his arms around her in his. Their fate was sealed and 6 years later, on a rainy Spring day they were married at Shaelli’s childhood church – St Jude’s Catholic Church in Scoresby with the reception and party to follow at Merrimu Events in Murrumbeena.
Always up for a good time, we shared barrels of laughs together! The champagne spray was the most epic I’ve ever seen (my camera is still recovering!) and Shaelli being the dance teacher choreographed the most amazing first dance, and father/daughter dance which ended in the kolo. Coratian liquor was free flowing and plentiful and the dancing lasted all night long. There were plenty of toasts (or should I say roasts!) and these two never took anything too seriously. Such an incredible day with these two and an A team of vendors!
If you like what you see so far and think we'd be a great fit, I'd love to hear from you!
Photography is a celebration of love, life, laughter and family. It is capturing the joy, the tears, the raw emotions and the connections with our loved ones. I love to photograph people and places, photography is not just my job, it’s my passion.
