Alexandra & Archie's Wedding Photography At The Sandrigham Yacht Club, Sandringham, Victoria Australia - 13th May 2017
It was a sunny autumn day, about 22 degrees; nice and comfortable. We had the pleasure to capture with photos and video Alexandra and Archie's wedding day.
Groom's Preparation Wedding Photography and Video Shoot
We headed out to the grooms parents' house in Donvale, in Melbourne's eastern suburbs to prepare for the Groom's preparation photo and video shoot. Archie had some whisky flasks and tumblers engraved with his groomsmen's names as gifts which he presented to them. The white roses from Naomi Rose Floral Design, were pinned on the close family members as a sign of respect. Archie did look handsome dressed in black suit and bow tie.
Bride's Preparation Wedding Photography and Video Shoot
Alexandra was about a 15 minute drive from Archie in Mont Albert. Chantelle Baker Makeup Artist was applying the finishing touches as we arrived for the bridal preparations. The dress made by Brides by Desire, looked elegant as the bride put it on. Everybody was looking sharp for the family photos, even their pet dog had his own tux on. So cute! Amazing Limousines supplied the limousine which Alexandra and her bridesmaids rode in on their way to the church.
The marriage ceremony was hosted at St. Raphael Greek Orthodox Church in Bentleigh. Archie was looking nervously excited as he awaited his bride's arrival. The priest preached a good sermon relevant to the couple about love and respect. As the couple wore their crowns and walked around the alter, the parents looked on teary eyed.
Bridal Party Photo and Video Shoot
We head off to St Kilda to commence the bridal party photo shoot; the first location at Luna Park, Melbourne. We took group photos with the face in the background, and tried our best not to have people walking into the shots. We concluded the photo shoot at Sandringham Yacht Club as the sun began to set over the water's horizon. The view from the decking was amazing, with the decking providing clean lines with Port Phillip Bay in the background.
Wedding Reception Celebration
The reception celebration was hosted at The Sandringham Yacht Club. The guests enjoyed the celebration with the music provided by DJ Dean. The photo booth was provided by Mark Carniato Photography. Alexandra's family danced pretty well to the Greek music, impressive considering their French background. Everybody enjoyed themselves, it was a beautiful day, and a pleasure to be a part of.
Congratulations Alexandra and Archie! Wishing you the best for your future together as husband and wife! From the team at Mark Carniato Photography
