Katherine & Jeremy
Katherine & Jeremy’s classic Melbourne wedding has all the classic element and all the little touches that make it personal to their sunny lifestyles. Katherine and Jeremy even met before the ceremony in one of Melbourne’s graffiti ridden lane ways and captured the best of Melbourne’s backdrops!
Katherine explains how they met. “We both met when we were 18 years old, when Jeremy moved out of home with friend of his. There was no funny business back then as both were in long term relationships but we were friends for a few years until we fell out of touch. 5 years later we ran into each other at a party and despite living in Sydney at the time, I knew it was love and I quickly packed my stuff up and moved back to Melbourne and straight in with Jeremy.”
Photographs are by Sunny & Scout Photography. I love Lou’s fresh and fun captures with a ton of personality and no lack of moments.
Miss Aimmey styled Katherine’s hair and makeup.
Katherine wore a strapless gown by Zhanel Couture with shoes from Piotr Antoni and jewels by Georgini. The yellow and white floral arrangements for the bridal party were styled by Flower Trends by Elena.
The couple met in the city for photographs before their ceremony which turned into one of Katherine’s favourite moments of the day. She remembers “I loved having a ‘first look’ before we got married. I was originally hesitant because it broke tradition but I am so glad we did this and it didn’t detract at all from the excitement of walking down the aisle. We had a 6pm ceremony so it was also good opportunity to have photos before hand and we have a mix of urban versus golf/bush photos.”
Katherine says “Our wedding day was beautiful, relaxing, intimate and so much fun! ”
Katherine and Jeremy held their wedding ceremony and reception at Huntingdale Golf Club. Katherine explains “Huntingdale Golf Club is very special to us. We are both keen golfers and are members there. But that is not the only reason we chose this venue. It has a beautiful rose garden which was perfect for our outdoor ceremony, plus while we had our hearts set on the terrace the indoor option was just as good. The food at HGF is exceptional and Marg Monaghan who is the Functions Coordinator there is so creative and accommodating. I left her completely in charge of the Lolly Buffet and as the photos prove – it was just stunning!”
Katherine walked down the aisle to “Sail Away” by David Gray.
Katherine remembers one of the funnier moments of the day “Having a beautiful long train is great, but just as I entered the archway, my dress blew into the rose bush and I got caught (TWICE!) – the photos and video captured my shocked face perfectly.” The couple were married by Alan Jacobs of Seven Blessings.
The wind proved an extra addition to the unpredictability of the wedding day. Katherine says, “We were praying for a balmy summer’s evening, unfortunately we forgot to pray for no wind. Lucky for us the chuppah stayed in the ground and despite having to move part of the dance floor inside we still had such a great night!”
Of their photographer, Katherine says “Louise from Sunny & Scout Photography was AMAZING! We originally found Louise on Polka Dot Bride and after seeing her beautiful photos (and getting to know her via her blog) we immediately knew we had to have her. We did an Engagement Shoot in St Kilda & Melbourne City and the photos were so awesome we couldn’t wait for our wedding photos. Louise was incredibly professional, friendly and super quick to deliver us our photos. We are just so happy she does family photos as well as we need a reason to use her again in the future!!”
The stationery for the wedding day was by Papyrus Design.
The cupcake wedding cake was made by Sophisticakes. Guests received cupcakes as favors.
The reception has the couple’s sweet yellow and while colour scheme. Katherine explains “I had spent 7 months addicted to reading wedding style blogs, buying all the wedding magazines, trolling Etsy and local markets. We had a DIY candy buffet, table numbers, name banner (thank you to my wonderful sister in law), put up all the lanterns (thanks to my wonderful cousin – owner of Laulukatu).”
The couple’s first dance was to “Turn Me On” by Norah Jones.
Congratulations Katherine and Jeremy! Thank you for sharing your wedding with us! Thank you also to Sunny & Scout Photography for today’s photographs!
