Alyce & Thomas' Wedding Photography at Fortnum's Restaurant & Wedding Venue, Sassafras

The Mark Carniato Photography and Videography team had the honour of capturing the wonderful wedding of Alyce and Thomas in the Dandenong Ranges in country Victoria.  It was a magical day filled with joy, love and laughter.  The love between Alyce and Thomas was evident.  It was clear that the groom had eyes only for his beautiful bride.  

Bride's Preparation Wedding Photography and Video Shoot

Photographing and filming the bridal preparation was made easy and enjoyable by the friendly and humble bridal party and Alyce's family.  The bride was a natural poser who was a delight to photograph and film.  Our wedding photography and videography team captured the most beautiful moments of the bride and bridesmaids getting ready for the special day.  We captured the emotion and love between mother and daughter, father and daughter, such beautiful and moving emotions.  Our wedding photography team took some candid shots of the bridal party preparation; showing off the beautiful wedding dress and the dazzling jewellery.  We put pride in our wedding photography and bring attention to detail, taking macro shots of the wedding invitations, bouquets, engagement ring, and the wedding dress.  We also filmed significant ornaments and pictures of significance, that tell us a little about the bride.

Groom's Preparation Wedding Photography and Videography Shoot

Our photography and videography team made their way to St Cuthbert's Wedding Chapel for the groom’s preparation.  It is always a pleasure to photograph and film the groom and groomsmen getting ready for the big day. We record the fun and excitement that exists between the groom and his mates that is infectious.  We ensure that we capture the shiny and immaculate wedding rings. 

Marriage Ceremony

The wedding ceremony at St Cuthbert's Wedding Chapel, a beautiful and intimate chapel in Menzie's Creek in the Dandenong Ranges.  It is always our goal to capture the reactions of the bride, groom their families and wedding guests.  As Alyce and Thomas shared their wedding vows, you can hear and see the unconditional love they share with each other, love was certainly in the air.  Their first kiss as husband and wife was the most moving and romantic moment of the wedding ceremony.

Bridal Party Photo and Video Shoot

The Mark Carniato Photography and Videography team strive to deliver the most breathtaking images and video at the Bridal party photo shoot. St Cuthbert's Wedding Chapel and Menzies Creek Puffing Billy Railway station made a scenic the backdrop for the photo shoot.  A combination of traditional posed portraiture, and more modern playful photography was the strategy used to take the formal photos.  We are always on a mission to deliver photos and video of the beautiful bride and groom, and their cheerful bridal party.  We made the most of the beautiful surroundings.

Wedding Reception Celebration

The reception was hosted at Fortnums Restaurant & Wedding Venue in Sassafras, a lovely venue in the Dandenong Ranges featuring good food and drinks. The staff is very hospitable too.  Buzzing with excitement, the bridal party entered the room to watch the bride and groom cut their cake, and dance their bridal waltz. Everybody was enjoying the wedding reception and the dance floor was rocking with moves to the popular tunes.

Congratulations Alyce and Thomas! We wish you all the best from the team at Mark Carniato Photography.
