Daniel and Rochelle contacted us after attending a wedding that we had the pleasure of capturing. After seeing our work and what we had done, they were both impressed enough to hire Jiva Workshop to capture their special day.
Daniel and Rochelle already had two children and it was important to them to be able to include them both in the wedding ceremony. They had already booked the venue at Portsea Hotel for the fantastic venue with sweeping views of Port Phillip Bay. This made for a picturesque setting for their special little family to come together and for both Daniel and Rochelle to say their vows to each other.
Their celebrant Karen Wilmot did a magnificent job of presiding over the ceremony with beautiful stories of how Daniel proposed and courted Rochelle, not to mention growing into a beautiful family of four. Daniel and Rochelle chose to do a hand fasting ritual during the ceremony. Hand Fasting is an old Celtic tradition where the hands of the bride and groom are bound together to represent the bond they will have together as man and wife.
After the ceremony we headed down to the Portsea Pier to get some loved up images of the bridal party. Timing it perfectly for Golden hour, we got some fantastic candid images of everyone on the pier with the water in the background.
We finished by heading back to The Portsea Hotel where Daniel and Rochelle had a cocktail / meal reception – The entree’s were a mixture of cocktail platters whilst the main meal was served as a sit down meal. Something that i had not seen before, yet seemed to work quite well for everyone present.
We loved working with Daniel and Rochelle, they brought humour and fun to our day and they had the cutest most adorable children you could have witnessed. Congratulations Daniel and Rochelle we wish you all the best for your future.
