Michaela & David

I think art galleries are one of the most fantastic places to have a wedding- after all the decor is pretty much taken care of with the colourful paintings and prints. And the clean white walls, urban style floors? They win me over every time. A blank canvas for a celebration if you will!

Today’s celebration is completely urban and modern, taking place in Melbourne’s CBD in the beautiful space that is fortyfivedownstairs.

Photographs today are by Matt Reed who is truly candid and natural with the photographs he takes.

Of their venue choice, Michaela explains “fortyfivedownstairs was the venue for both the ceremony and the reception as it has two levels. It’s a not for profit arts space that houses both theatre and visual arts. It is a venue close to my heart as I worked there as an intern during university and it is truly a beautiful and soulful space.  Weddings are only held in the space a couple of months of the year outside of season.”

Of their photographer, Michaela says, “Matt’s work is exactly what I wanted, honest, candid and gorgeous. You want to have photos which capture the emotion and joy of the whole experience and every shot Matt took is a moment in time from the night. Everything works as an entire composition.”
