Intimate Rooftop Wedding

This is one of those weddings where every last moment is so very, very awesome, you’re not even sure how to explain just how amazing it is.  You know the one - it’s the perfect mix of seriously stylish + elegant with a bride and groom who really know how to throw a fabulous party.  Add to that a gallery full of jaw-droppingly gorgeous images from Aparat photography and, well… happy Tuesday, indeed.

Event Venue

From Aparat Photography… Bec and David’s wedding at a rooftop bar in Melbourne’s CBD, was an intimate affair of around 60 guests. Under a high ceiling with sweeping views of the city seen through the tall glass walls, a single long table was adorned with flowers and candles running down the middle.

An emotional ceremony was held, before everyone sat down to a cozy dinner and later danced the night away as the sun set behind the city’s skyscrapers. There was no cake or bridal waltz and Bec was walked down the aisle by her best friend. This was not about following any strict traditions, but more about being surrounded by their nearest and dearest.

Bec and Dave are a couple with so much soul and energy and we were caught up in their day and found ourselves so overjoyed to see them marry. Two very kind-hearted and welcoming people who instantly put anyone they meet at ease (Bec embraced us so warmly when we first met). This was as genuine a marriage as you could get and this is what makes our job so wonderful, documenting these stories.
