Sara and Nima’s Wedding at The Prince in St Kilda

I like Sara and Nima’s style. They didn’t get caught up in the need to be conventional, to follow tradition or add a lot of extra faff. They just picked out what was important to them and went with it.

Sara and Nima had always planned to meet before the wedding ceremony to take some photos, so that the ceremony could run straight into the reception. We’d planned to meet in a local park for this “first look”, but just before the wedding Sara rang me and said that things were getting a bit logistically complicated, and that Nima was just going to come around to pick her up at the house. So that he did! Nima was greeted at the front door by the warm embrace of Sara and her family, which was followed by excited squeals. It was truly a unique, completely uncontrived moment. A unique moment for me to capture on camera. That is what weddings are all about—the unique moments.

It was so much fun wandering around St Kilda with Sara and Nima. They just smiled, laughed and joked the whole time. The ceremony was on the deck of the Prince, which was shared with their nearest and dearest who had travelled from all over the world to be there. The sun setting over the bay and St Kilda was the perfect backdrop for their laid-back reception.

It was a truly special day.


A big thank you to Andy for assisting me on the day. He went above and beyond when he chased seagulls around St Kilda!
