Melbourne Wedding Photos – Weddingscapes

So, what is a Weddingscape?  The way we describe them is ‘they are beautiful landscapes with our couples in them’.  Our Weddingscapes as art pieces are a much sort after product by our clients.  They are always something that we get many positive comments on.  This is the type of image that many of our bride & grooms want in their melbourne wedding photos.  An amazing scene to reflect the day and to remember it by.  These signature photographs make our clients walls.

Our couples and our photographers always have a lot of fun creating these on the day of the wedding and thoroughly enjoy the experience.  Most couples are willing to put in the extra effort to get that awesome shot.  To enable us to create something they can look back on forever, a piece of ART!

Willow Creek Wedding – Norm & Kate

Norm & Kate’s willow creek wedding on the mornington peninsula was held on Saturday 25th January 2014, with both the ceremony and reception being held at Willow Creek Vineyard in Hastings.
Q. When and how did you meet? And what were your first thoughts?
A. We met through mutual friends, but it was quite a long process! Our first meeting was at an audition, where Norm was the pianist. I ended up performing in a different show, however I went to see the show that Norm was involved with and my best friend / Bridesman (who happened to be working backstage for the production) introduced me to Norm. I thought he was very handsome, but it was a fleeting introduction and so I didn’t think much of it. A few months later, I was involved in a show with Norm’s roommate. After one of the performances, Norm (who I recognised from our previous brief meetings) came striding up to me and asked me to marry him! I laughed and thought, “Oh my goodness, who is this weirdo!” As it turns out, he was not a weirdo at all but in fact, “the one”. The joke now is that it took him 10 years to say those words again!
Q. When and how did the proposal take place and how did you feel?
A. Our day began with an incredible massage at Endota Spa in Williamstown (a favourite indulgence of ours). We then checked into a hotel in the city, where Norm proceeded to sit me down and read to me the most gorgeous speech. He got down on one knee, produced an incredible ring from his pocket and asked me to marry him. I was so overwhelmed that the first words to come out of my mouth were, “Are you serious?!” (Luckily for me he was). We then called my Dad to share the news, who was actually travelling in a ferry in Ireland at the time! We called our close family and friends over dinner at The Long Room and ended our Saturday 27th of August celebrations at “Rock of Ages” at the Comedy Theatre. I had had my suspicions that a proposal was on the cards, but I was still unprepared for just how amazing a feeling it would be.
Q. Where are you going on your honeymoon? Please include dates of departure & return.
A. We are heading to Europe in August / September. We chose that time of year so as to enjoy the tail-end of Europe’s summer, but it’s also a nice way to extend our wedding celebrations.
Q. Where is your ceremony and reception being held and why did you choose these venues?
A. Both our ceremony and reception are at Willow Creek Vineyard in Merricks North. We looked at several venues on the Mornington Peninsula and I think we knew it was the place for us as soon as we arrived. Later that day as we were deliberating over lunch in Sorrento, our waitress came to our table and her nametag read “Willow”. We considered it a sign.
Q. What does your wedding dress look like? Please give a details description and also include any accessories such as shoes.
A. I am wearing a Pronovias gown (“Domingo”) with lace and tulle. When searching for dresses, I did not expect to choose such a traditional gown, but it looked so romantic and it really made me feel like a bride.
Q. What is the Theme or style of your wedding?
A. Classic romance
Q. Jewelry & Accessories
A. I am wearing a very special pendant attached to my bracelet, which has been made with lace from my mum’s wedding gown. Sadly she passed away in 2006, but wearing such a special memento makes me feel like she will be close by. (Bracelet: Tiffany & Co; Lace Pendant: Gabby Resin Jewellery; Earrings: Fletcher & Grace)
Q. Hair & make up
A. Hair: Kendrie Coonan of Chick Flicks Event Hair, Makeup: Dana Leviston of Lady Day
Q. Who is conducting your service?
A. Our celebrant is Christine Preston, who is also my aunty. Having someone marry us with whom we have such a great bond is extremely special.
Q. Florist
A. Our bouquets, boutonnières, corsages and centrepieces have all been created by Courtney Barton and include ivory and blush David Austin Roses, white lissianthus, gardenias and freesias.
Q. Wedding Favours & Cake
A. Our cake features a tier of white chocolate mud and a tier of red velvet, prepared by the talented Janelle at Cake Ink . For our favours, we organized fortune cookies with our own messages inside (www.fortunecookies.com.au) along with a CD featuring all of the songs from the day.
Q. Invitations & Stationary
A. The Robert Indiana “LOVE” sculpture inspired the initial concept and then expanded into incorporating a watercolour design in a summery palette. Our invitations came to life thanks to the assistance of our dear friend, Tailem Morgan. This theme continued into our other printed materials for the day, including our “Message in a Bottle” guest book. We created labels for 10 wine bottles, each representing future anniversaries. Guests were invited to write us a message and then scroll it up and place into one of the wine bottles. We can’t wait to open one each year and read what everyone has written.
Q. Food & Drink
A. When choosing a venue, the quality of food and wine was top of our priorities list. We wanted to ensure there would also be an ample amount – we had a “no Macca’s run required” philosophy! The team at Salix have put together a delicious menu and were also kind enough to put aside our favourite vintage Chardonnay from the cellar door just for our night.
Q. Is there any other supplier you would specifically like to mention:
A. Light-up LOVE letters provided by The Three Piece Suit

wedding photography mornington peninsula – Scott & Kellie

How did you meet?
We met when we were in high school at a good friends party. We were instantly attracted to each other which was further cemented when I (Kellie) kicked Scott’s behind at pool. We didn’t see each other again until about 5 years after, however during that time Scott would always come up in our girly high school conversation’s when we were talking about our “ideal guys”. We officially started “going out when I was 19, Scott was 21, and we brought our first house together two years after that.

Where and how did the proposal take place?
In normal Scott fashion we decided we should get engaged after an awfully unromantic conversation which went something like “well it is probably a good idea to get married soon” I then went out and chose the ring put it on hold and Scott went and picked it up. He did take me to the Langham hotel for the night, and out for a nice dinner to formally propose. We were engaged for almost two years before getting married.

Where was your wedding held?
Willow Creek Winery/Salix

What was the Theme or Style?
The venue was so beautiful by itself I didn’t want to tack it up by including lot’s of wedding paraphernalia so I just kept it super simple with a slight vintage theme.

What was your favourite moment of your wedding?
I am going to be super cliché and say walking down the isle watching Scott and all the boys waiting there for us and the look on Scott’s face, “pure terror!” Scott also surprised me with his grooms speech. I had written a simple one for him to do as speeches are not really Scotts thing. He ended up writing his own beautiful speech the night before the wedding. I was really surprised and it was a really proud moment for me.

Favourite Photo and why?
There are three gorgeous photos that Lucas of Lens to Life Photography took of Scott with our 8 week old son Jordan. I don’t think Scott knew they were being taken. He had not seen Jordan since the previous morning because he was with me so was just kissing him hello. The photos tell a million words they are really amazing!

Description of Bride’s Dress?
Ummm wedding dressy looking. I chose it because there are only so many wedding dresses you can look at before they all start looking the same and this one seemed to stand out from the rest, so the decision was made quickly and without to much pain.

The Honeymoon Destination and any details or stories you’d like to share?
We were booked to go to Thailand originally straight after our wedding. However when we found out about being pregnant with Jordan we had to post pone the trip so we will now be going with Jordan in August, which is kind of good as it draws out the whole wedding celebration/excitement a bit longer.

Suppliers you would love mentioned:
The girls who did my hair and make up were AMAZING! They came to our house. I am not great with choosing hair make up etc so just left the decisions up to them as I knew I could trust them to do an amazing job which they did. Unfortunately they don’t have a website but hair dressers name is Debbie Unwin from Hair for You. Ph 0415277506 or email debbieunwin6@yahoo.co.uk. Makeup artist was Merranda from Bayside Beauty in Mornington http://www.baysidebeautylounge.com.au

We had spent the day exploring the beautiful village and after dinner, while sitting at a lookout overlooking the village and the ocean, Mark surprised me with the proposal.

Our wedding was held at the beautiful Willow Creek Winery. As the weather was not particularly kind to us we moved the ceremony inside to Salix’s restaurant, which was absolutely beautiful.

What was the Theme or Style:
Vintage-Chic

Shae: Walking down the aisle with my Dad, looking down to see Mark waiting for me.
Mark: Dancing with Shae at the end of the night when all the important bits were out of the way!

There are so many to choose from, but we do love the one where we are all walking down the driveway holding the umbrellas because we are surrounded by all our friends.

Groomsmen:
Attire was from Rodger David. We didn’t want them to all to look the same, so they all chose different looks while sticking to a similar colour palette. It was one of the easiest parts to the whole planning process. The boys were fantastic and I think they had a bit of fun with them.

The dresses were made from a company called Two Birds. It’s one dress that can be worn 16 different ways. Each of the bridesmaids were able to wear their dress a different way.

Invitations;
We designed the invitations ourselves (we are both graphic designers) and got them letterpressed by www.artisanpress.com.au

Flowers:
by Rebecca Debresser ‘Blush wedding Flowers’.  I knew the colours that we wanted but i left it up to Rebecca to decide on the types of flowers. She did the most amazing job. They were better than what I could of ever imagined.

Marks suit:
We had the suit made through Travellers Apparel. http://www.travellersapparel.com.au

How did Lens to life contribute to your day?:
Our photographer Lucus from Lens to Life was a perfect choice for the style of photos that we were after.
He did an exceptional job at making us feel relaxed and despite the stormy weather conditions we still came away with an album full of beautiful memories and stunning photos.

DIY Elements:
Instead of a guest book, we wanted to be a little different, so I purchased an old typewriter that we set up for people to write us messages.
(Towards the end of the night this amused the younger generation as they were a little stumped as to where the ‘enter’ key had gone!)

We also set up a key box. I had gathered a heap of old skeleton keys and attached tags to them so guests could write their ‘keys to a happy marriage’ on them for us to keep as a wedding keepsake!

By scouring ops shops I was able to collect a whole range of things from old teapots that we used as vases to beautiful little teacups and vintage books. I also made a range of cake stands from vintage plates and candlesticks and odd things i could find at the op shop.

As we were having a cocktail reception we decided to have additional grazing food on the side. We decided to go along the theme of only using produce from the local area on the Mornington Peninsula. This is where the cake stands came into play. During the first cocktail hour we had a table full of local cheeses from Red Hill Cheese and strawberries from Sunny Ridge strawberry farm. In the main restaurant area we had another table set up with more cake stands filled with different types of fudge from Peninsula fudge and a range of chocolates.
