This was just one of the fun, personal touches at this sweet couple’s wedding. Brooke and her bridesmaids got ready for the day with Brooke’s very excited family at the grand, historic Rendezvous Hotel on Flinders Street. The bridesmaids looked sleek in black lace dresses with tiered skirts that mirrored Brooke’s gown, while the groomsmen were dapper in timeless black suits and ties with whimsical elephant cufflinks.
With plenty of happy tears, the ceremony took place under the gazebo in the gardens of the Ascot House, followed by a reception in the garden room overlooking the courtyard.
After the wedding, Brooke sent us this sweet thank-you note: “From first meeting you, we were very happy with how relaxed you made us both feel. On the day we hardly noticed you were snapping away, which resulted in the natural style of wedding photography that we were after. You made our friends and family very comfortable and they are all as excited as us to see the final product. We are very happy that we found you and have already recommended your services to friends. Many thanks again, Lizzy and Clara. You made our day even more special by capturing it so beautifully.”
Thank you, Brooke and Jason, for letting us be a part of your day!
