Wedding Photography at San Remo Ballroom, North Carlton, Victoria, Australia - 27th January 2017

Janet & Peter's Story

"A day 10 years in the making. Janet and Peter are high school sweethearts. Both have deep roots with their families and culture, ensuring that their wedding would be embedded with tradition and love. After a year long engagement, the pieces came together perfectly for their big day. Surrounded by family and friends, they came together and started the rest of their lives together"


Our wedding photography team had the privilege to capture the wedding of Janet and Peter in photographs and video. A welcoming light-hearted and buoyant couple, their wedding promised to be inspirational from beginning to end, and it was.

Groom's Preparation Wedding Photography and Video Shoot

The Mark Carniato Photography team headed to the south eastern suburbs of Melbourne in the morning to begin the groom's preparation photo shoot. The bridegroom and his groomsmen assisting each other as they dressed and prepare for the days events.

Bride's Preparation Wedding Photography and Video Shoot

The bride's preparation was hosted at the Matron of Honour's house.  We arrived with Tania the hair and make up artist from  Princess brides hair and makeup concluding her amazing work on schedule. We had plenty of time to photograph the stunning bride,  her beautiful bridesmaids, and the gorgeous flower girl getting ready. We finished off with some portraits of the bride, and her parents.  

Marriage Ceremony

The marriage ceremony took place at the St John the Forerunner Greek Orthodox Church on Lygon St in North Carlton. Being a well decorated church, the photos look rich and colourful, with interesting details in the background from every angle.  The love and excitement was immense, watching Janet and Peter cheerily holding hands as they stood at the alter. The air filled with joyous emotion and applause, when they kissed for the first time as husband and wife.

Bridal Party Photo and Video Shoot

The Bridal party with their photographer and videographer travelled to the Fitzroy Gardens, in East Melbourne for the Photo Shoot.  The photo shoot was to predominantly feature gardens and greenery as the theme. A unique Star Wars composite wedding photograph was also featured, with the bridal party running for their lives!  Being a sunny day without any cloud cover always makes for challenging wedding photography, we added some off-camera flash to create a frontal key light for most of the portraits exposing the bridal parties' facial features flatteringly.

Wedding Reception Celebration

The wedding reception celebration was lively and energetic, from the bridal party entrance, to the cutting of the cake, the speeches and the traditional Chilean Rooster dance.  With the dance floor bouncing in sync to the beat, the party had just begun.  What a beautiful day, what a beautiful wedding.

Congratulations Janet and Peter!
