J & B’s Retro Inspired Wedding

Despite the massive thunderstorm and potential flooding, in true Melbourne style the weather turned around completely for Ben and Jessamy’s wedding!

Talking of true Melbourne style, check out the bride and groom!

Melissa Jacob from the ceremony store conducted Ben and Jessamy’s relaxed and quite amusing ceremony at the St Kilda botanic gardens which was followed by croquet in the gardens.

Ben and Jessamy have fond connections with St Kilda and liked the idea of including the urban landscape in their wedding photos.  So we wandered from the ceremony to the reception and snapped some great shots on the way.  Ben even became a part of the city landscape when a pigeon resting on an eve above decided to drop his business on Ben’s shirt!  Ben and Jessamy weren’t phased at all, we had a good laugh and continued on! See photo of Jessamy tenderly wiping off said poop from Ben… 

Ben and Jessamy I wish you all the best of luck (not that you’ll need it, thanks to that pigeon!)

    I adore the one with the bride laughing in the background and the groom in the foreground – it’s exquisite!

    Hi Liz,

    You have whet our appettite for what is to come next! The grey background looks perfect, well picked, you certainly have an eye for it. Both Benj and myself are so sad that the day is over and you were such an important part of it. In fact, I spent more time with you than anyone else on the day! Should we have any other important events to photograph we will absolutley be repeat customers of yours. I can’t recommend you highly enough.

    Jessamy &Ben. Lizz,,

    Jessamy, You looked wonderful, and I had tears when I saw you on the day. Ben you were very handsome and urbanely debonair & though there were less tears by then, I was no less moved when I saw you.

    It was a wonderful day, in beautiful surrounds and you all have enhanced that. I have just returned to see the images again and they have captured the day well. I am transported back to the day and experiencing the emotions all over again through your camera Lizz. I am still the proudest F.O.B. in the world.
