Melbourne is a city with people from over 200 countries so it’s no surprise that this lucky lady met her Greek future husband there. And that’s how this story captured by Lula Films begins… and as it continues, we fall deeper and deeper in love with these two and their beautiful journey. Pour yourself that second cup of joe and settle in for one sweet story.
From Lula Films… Sheila and Manoulis celebrate an interesting Greek wedding in Melbourne.

Any wedding that includes pink peonies and roses as gorgeous as these is a total winner in my book. Luckily the floral geniuses of Chandelabra felt the same and built a bridal bouquet that totally stole the show. Go have a peek in the gallery from Jo Ashworth Photography!

From Chandelabra Weddings and Events…Roseanne and Alex were living in Singapore and planning their wedding in Perth, Australia. It was going to be an international affair with visitors from the UK and Singapore and Roseanne’s family and friends in Perth. As her wedding planner/stylist we had lots of chats and photos shared on WhatsApp and a Pinterest board.
The ceremony was held in the beautiful old Catholic church of Saint Columba in South Perth. The picturesque church has an outlook over the Swan River with sweeping views back to the Perth city skyline. Sheltered by mature plane trees the light finish of the exterior and architecture of the church is stylish inside and out. The bridal party arrived in vintage Chevrolets and after the ceremony, while their guests were treated to champagne and hors d’oeuvres at a local hotel, they were off to the Perth Zoo to ride on the carousel horses all in the name of photos!
Afterwards, the bridal party arrived by boat to the wharf at the Boatshed Restaurant for their reception. Their guests were once again treated to views over the Perth skyline and the beautiful Swan River. The reception decor brief from the bride was to create a romantic, relaxed and glowing ambience which we achieved with lush blooms in blush and lipstick pink roses, full hydrangea blooms with a touch of whimsical foliage escaping from the vintage silver mercury glass vases and illuminated by slim candles in antique silver candelabras.
Table numbers were replaced with the names of countries and cities familiar to the guests. The seating plan was a vintage map of the world. They were entertained during dinner with moody acoustics guitar by Reilly Craig, and after dancing the night away, it was all aboard a party boat to take them through to the early hours!

From Jasmine Pettersen … We took inspiration for this shoot from the golden light of autumn, and the gardens and grounds of the Heide Museum of Modern Art in Melbourne. Organic and slightly wild, the fenced gardens hide secret nooks for lovers to wait, and surprise us with delicate green shoots among the autumn tones.
Our bride looked ethereal in her embroidered silk Houghton NYC Beatrix gown from The Bridal Atelier, paired with a delicate crown from Anna Marguerite.
Shades of gold and silvery grey feature throughout: in the soft billowy silk ribbons, the art deco diamond rings, and the exquisite paper goods in metallic ink on grey handmade paper.
Our florals, mirroring the wildness of the garden, feature poppies, garden roses, peonies and autumn berries and foliage.
The overall effect is both elegant and refined, but grounded in the imperfect beauty of nature.
