Weather is unpredictable in Melbourne at the best of times – but I believe that this has to be one of the first times in quite a few years it wasn’t a hot and humid day in the middle of February. The rain clouds descended (but didn’t quite arrive until late into the night), leaving us with some misty conditions, dapper lighting + calm surrounds.

Though, you wouldn’t know it. Anthea + Dylan weren’t too phased by the weather. They celebrated. They partied. They got married. They were present and immersed in every single moment of their special day. That’s what really matters. Priorities were on point.

Both Anthea + Dylan were uber chill during the morning festivities. With hair and makeup well and truly complete on our arrival (thanks Melissa Maier Styles + Styled by Nicole Whitty) – it was soon time for Anthea to make her grand reveal in her stunning bridal gown complimented by blooms by Elsa and Gray.

There’s something quite special in a cultural wedding. With the mix of Greek + Sri Lankan heritages, their day was filled with love and spirituality. From the traditional Greek Orthodox ceremony at Greek Orthodox Parish of Doncaster; thru to the Sri Lankan candle lighting in the morning preparations and at their reception at Inglewood Estate.

So many laughs and good times with these two newlyweds. Through the portrait session alongside Michael Briggs Photography, they hardly needed any prompting or guidance – their love radiated through our lenses and were so natural and happy.

As the reception kicked into gear with Lark Music pumping the tunes, the night ended with some massive party vibes and Greek plate smashing out in the rain.

Thanks for having me, Anthea + Dylan.
