A Lavish Affair

The Wedding Emporium

Such a great night at The Wedding Emporium. A big thank you to Marissa at, A Lavish Affair, Marcus at​ Blumenthal Photography​ & C2 Films's.

Who hosted a beautiful intimate affair for future brides and Grooms of Melbourne. It was great to meet amazing Bride & Grooms to be & to be associated with amazing industry people who are 2nd too none in what they do. Xx

About last night Last night was The wedding Emporium event held at

A Lavish Affair ​ Not only was it a great night it was a night with surprises.

As I was talking to a future bride to be, I looked at the lady beside her and asked if she had been one of my previous brides, as her face looked familiar to me. She replied yes 19 years ago. She showed me a pic on her phone of a image she took of her wedding photo's and it blew me away. It was so surreal to see and a little bit shocking to see myself back, all most 20 years back. All I can say is thank god I aged better than I looked back then.

I remembered Teresa & her wedding gown like it was yesterday. Then Teresa said that the little flower girl in the picture was the bride to be I was talking with. So surreal !!

It also had me thinking about how much an honour it is to play a part in people's weddings and be part of their wedding day.

So thank you Teresa for coming last night, it was great to see you again. xx
