Ria & Cameron's Wedding Photography at Showtime Events in South Wharf, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia - 17th March 2017

Our professional wedding photography team had the honour of capturing the intimate wedding of Cameron and Ria in photography and videography. Cameron and Ria are a beautiful couple of whom radiate a warm and most welcoming energy, it was a great pleasure to be in their company and to be part of their special wedding day. And it was indeed, a perfect wedding day.

Groom's Preparation Wedding Photography and Video Shoot

Mark Carniato Photography captured the groom's preparation photo and video shoot at the Groom's house located in Pascoe Vale, Melbourne.  The groom was great to work with, Cameron and his groomsmen were also photogenic and easy to photograph.

Bride's Preparation Wedding Photography and Video Shoot

The bride's preparation took place at the Hilton Melbourne South Wharf Hotel, South Wharf 2 Convention Centre Place, South Wharf.  On arrival, the bride and the bridesmaids’ hair by Cutting Girl and make up by Ebony Maize Makeupwere done to perfection, which left our photography team sufficient time to photograph and video the bride getting ready for the wedding ceremony.  Ria and her bridesmaids were not only beautiful young ladies, they were a pleasure to work with. The bridal party were photogenic and were a natural with our suggested bride and bridesmaid elegant poses.  It is always a delight to be in the company of a bridal party who are bubbly and are open to our creative photography wedding bridal party poses.

Marriage Ceremony

The marriage ceremony was hosted at the Smart Artz Gallery in South Melbourne.  It was an interesting and inviting venue with an industrial touch. The artwork around the gallery was colourful and appealing, the wedding guests were in no doubt admiring the paintings.  The lovely bride Ria arrived in a purple Holden Monaro, and walked with her father hand in hand down the aisle to meet the very excited and somewhat nervous looking husband to be, Cameron. The marriage celebrant Matthew J Lee, was a charismatic gentleman with a great sense of humour. The family and friends enthusiastically applauded the bride and groom as they became husband and wife.

Bridal Party Photo and Video Shoot

The Bridal party with the photographer and videographer went to Hosier Lane in Melbourne's CBD, and Flinders St Train Station, Melbourne for the Bridal Party Photo Shoot.  The colourful graffiti at Hosier Lane created the perfect backdrop for the bridal portraits for both close up and wide angle shots. The photo shoot was concluded at Federation square, all very popular icons and locations for wedding photo shoots in Melbourne.

Wedding Reception Celebration

The wedding reception was hosted at Showtime Events Centre in South Wharf, Melbourne. Featuring waterfront views of the Yarra river and the reflecting city lights is indeed a romantic place to celebrate the love of a bride and groom. All the wedding guests had a splendid time dancing, eating, drinking and had a hilarious and fun experience with the Photo booth.  It was pleasing to see the wedding guests writing heart felt messages to the bride and groom in our photo booth bridal album and including their fun memories the photo booth captured.  What a day, what a night!
Congratulations Cameron and Ria!

Testimonial from the bride to Mark Carniato Photography

Mark and team photographed & video’d our wedding day and we could not be happier. They were literally there from start to finish and captured all of the moments we will treasure forever. They were laid-back and professional throughout the whole process. The finished products of the photos, photobook and video are fantastic. We also had the photobooth for the night which everyone enjoyed. Will definitely be calling on Mark for future photography needs! Highly recommend.
