Rukiye & Kerem
The beautiful Fitzroy Gardens are a favourite among Melburnians and, as evidenced by this gorgeously glam engagement session of Rukiye and Kerem, it’s so easy to see why. Meandering paths and heritage buildings acted as a beautiful backdrop for Lovable Photography to tell their story. With a wedding bound for Germany, the pair made the most of the day, stopping for photographs at Meadow Heights Mosque before celebrating in an intimate ceremony with their Australian loved ones. And can we talk about the deep ruby gown Rukiye chose? Everyone needs a little sparkle for their engagement session if you ask me!
It was on holiday in Istanbul that these two first laid eyes on one another. Rukiye reminiscing, “We met overseas in Turkey during a tour we had both joined. Everyone on the tour bonded so well so it wasn’t awkward at all.”
On what she loves about her beloved, Rukiye tells, “I love that my husband has the forgive and forget attitude. He tells me that he loves my smile and cooking (not sure if he is being honest as I fail at cooking and baking).”
The happy couple invited guests to celebrate with them in a small ceremony after their engagement session, noting, “We decided to have a small type of ceremony for our engagement in Australia. We decided this was the best decision due to organising the wedding overseas in Germany.”
