Lizzy C Photography, Melbourne Photographer

Chris and Dom~ An Eustathios Greek Orthodox Church and Port Melbourne Yacht Club Wedding

Sometimes I find it really hard to write the words that I publish along with the photos I‘ve taken. As I am first and foremost a photographer, I tell stories with pictures, not words.

I think I find it hard because I need to find a way to express in words those moments each couple will never forget. How do I express the joy, the emotion and the fun in a way that captures all that I witnessed in one day?

I don’t think I can. But I hope the images can.

Having said that…

Some standout moments that I noticed, which will be etched into my memory from Chris and Dom’s wedding were…

Dominik’s dad standing proudly in the corner with a grin that stretched from ear to ear as he watched the boys going through the routine of preparing for the day, and struggling and debating over ties and cuff links.

The boys deciding that it was a good idea for Dominik’s mum to iron their shirts, and then lining up in succession to have their shirts ironed!

Chris comfortably switching between English and Greek as she conversed fondly with her grandmother.

Chris reverting to childhood innocence and excitement when she looked to her bridesmaids, when she was all dressed up.

The kiss, and the moment that Chris and Dom stole straight after the ceremony while waiting for the guests to come and offer their congratulations.

The tears in Chris’s mother’s eyes and her beaming smile during Chris’s speech.

The fantastic speech Dom made about their trials and tribulations learning the dance they’d bring to everyone that night. Including their discovery that their shared journey was much more important than the dance, which they took to with a vigorous light heartiness and performed to perfection!

Chris and Dom got married at St Eustathios Greek Orthodox Church in South Melbourne and held their reception at Port Melbourne Yacht Club.

To see the photographic journey I took with Chris and Dom in it’s entirety their pre-wedding couples session photos can be seen here.

Chris and Dom, I hope you are having a fantastic time in Cuba and Mexico on your honeymoon! I hope you also know how jealous I am, right now! And that I expect to see lots of photos!

    We are in a little Mexican fishing village called Barra de Navidad. We have not checked internet in a while and opening up email today to see these fabulous photos was a total treat! The emotion on people´s faces you have captured is truly beautiful. Thank you Lizzy. We keep reliving our day in words but now we can relive it in photos. We can´t wait to see them all when we get back.
