A Royal Melbourne Botanic Gardens & Terrace Wedding

I think Jessie summed up her and Rhys’s wedding day perfectly when she said “oh boy, what a great day it was”.

I’d also like to add relaxed, happy and picture-perfect. Jessie had a great vision for their wedding day; working in her own wedding styling business helped it all come together perfectly. She sure is creative; all the details were stunning, even though they were eclectic in nature (excuse the pun!). The colours just popped out and helped create the beautifully relaxed vibe of the day.

The entire day seemed to fly by in a blur. It was nice to slow down and take a wander through the gardens, chatting and laughing with the bridal party, and capturing the mood and the lush foliage that engulfed us .

Jessie had some lovely stuff to say about us too and, well, I thought we may as well toot our own horns and share it with the world!

“Lizzy, you were a great calm to me on the day, I never felt that I had to do anything out of my comfort zone and I was able to enjoy every moment without feeling like ‘oh no, not another photo’, with you easy going and comical attitude you made the day fun for everyone within the bridal party or that met you.

Lizzy is extremely organized, relaxed and professional which I have to say ‘I dont know how she does it’, (especially when you have groomsmen disappearing to cater to another beverage during a group photo session of the bridal party). Lizzy’s assistant on the day, Clara, did a great job of rounding up all the friends and family for the photos, gee that girl can run!”

Thanks Jessie and Rhys!

Notice some familuar faces? A year prior I photographed Emma and Ben’s Wedding (Emma is Jessie’s sister) and you all loved her creative style. We love them both! Together Jessie and Emma are the creative duo behind the styling company “Courting Scarlett”
