Lisa and Michael were married in the Chapel at Ashton Manor in Diamond Creek, right next to Eltham. I met Michael prior to the ceremony in the morning to get some ‘nervous groom shots’ and was there to greet Lisa as she arrived in her bridal car. The ceremony was emotional and full of fun. Afterwards, we all stepped outside for several formal family and group shots, before heading into the main reception area for pre dinner drinks. I used this time to shoot the bridal party in the ‘ready room’ and take some candid shots of the guests talking, laughing, eating and drinking in the foyer.
When Lisa and Michael entered the reception and were formally introduced they cut their cake and went straight to the dance floor for their bridal dance. After enjoying an entree (which was lovely) I headed home for a few hours until we met up again in Collins Street at the Westin Hotel. We shot at Hosier Lane and the archway at the back of the cathedral in Flinders Lane. We wandered around the city streets stopping here and there as we found places of interest in which to shoot. We ended up at a bar in one of the laneways where we took a few staircase and couchy shots before we called it a day.
