Emily + Tim - Melbourne Gallery & Beach Wedding


Oh boy, oh boy!
When I met these 2 on Skype  (I know old skool innit)  I knew I was going to be in for a treat on their wedding day!
I was not disappointed.

I started with Tim and his 13 year old son, Sunny.  And can I just say,  I now have very high expectations for all other 13 year old boys - he has set the bar highhhhh.
And these two have taken #fathersongoals to a whole new level.
Never a dull moment when these 2 were getting ready and it was totes über cool overload!

Sunny and I then went and joined Emily and her posse!   I loved that nearly all her vendors where either friends or family - which made it even more special that they chose lil' ol' me for their pics.  I had a great day with them all - and as it so often happens when I'm shooting a wedding, I gained a whole lotta new family for the day.

Tim and Emily opted for a First Look - which I highly recommend.  It means you get to have that first glance of your future spouse and soak it all up in private - which means you can have ugly crying face and snot nose tears if you want!  I digress!

The ceremony and reception where held at the cool for cats, Smart Artz Gallery.  All styled and dressed by Emily's very clever sister-in-law,  while the florals were all done by Tim's 18 year old daughter, Raine.  And flipping gorgeous they were too - Raine and the flowers! :)  I told you it was a family affair.  AND her Dad did the cake!!  And honestly - was one of the tastiest cakes I've had.  Full stop.

The things I took away from this wedding are as follows:
- First Looks are ace!
- sneaking down to the beach for some portraits and a breather was a most excellent idea
- Teachers really know how to tear it up on the dance floor!
- Don't let your brother ( who may have had a bevvy or two) be in charge of handing out the sparklers for the sparkler tunnel exit AND give him the only lighter! ( insert crying laughing face emoji)

Ok, let's cut to the chase - the pics can say it so much better than my ramblings!
