Vanessa & Ash's wedding feature

in Complete Wedding Melbourne magazine

It is so great to see my Bride Vanessa & Ash featured in the this issue of Complete Wedding Melbourne .

Vanessa's wedding was completely designed, styled and directed by myself. Not to mention the first bride to be photographed on the roof top of Melbourne's iconic Manchester Unity Bld. I organised Vanessa & Ash's wedding to be photographed on the top level of Melbourne's iconic historical building the Manchester Unity Bld, located on the Crn of Collins & Swanston Street Melbourne as I wanted their images to have that inner city sky line vibe life style too reflect who they were as a couple. It was a lot of hard work to organize , as Brides had never been able to be photographed there and the property is privetely owned.

It had been a pain staking task to organised but one that was worth it. So I am very proud to have been able to do that for my bride. Directing the photographers to achieve the vision I had for Vanessa & Ash all paid off, as their images turned out just beautifully. Both The Bride & Groom & I can proudly say that we were the first to be able to use this amazing space.

Vanessa's gown was made with a hand beaded French tulle lace in a natural colour. It was form fitted and fell into a 1/2 mt train. Vanessa's shoulder straps were moulded from a silk tulle to form a V neckline effect.
