Mel and Shane first met at a club in Sorrento whilst out with their respective friends. According to his best man, Shane was instantly attracted to Mel and went about the process of wooing her the only way he knew how. Mel fell for Shane’s charms that night and long story short subsequently had 2 children together and were for all intents and purposes a committed couple. The only thing that was missing was the ring. So it was with great excitement that Shane asked Mel to marry him and finally put a ring on it.
Both Mel and Shane wanted to have a beach side wedding, and when they saw The Beaumaris Motor Yacht Squadron that was situated right on the foreshore of Port Phillip Bay. They knew they had found their wedding venue. The ceremony would be perfect overlooking the water, however, The gods on that day decided to bless Mel and Shanes wedding day with rain. It’s not often that it rains all day in Melbourne but today was one of those days. And so everything had to be moved inside. The crew setting up did an amazing job making the venue look quite magical for the ceremony with the big LOVE letters displayed as a backdrop to the whole procession.
It was after the ceremony that we had a small break in the weather and was able for a small time to go out and get some great shots of Mel and Shane even if their was a light shower. It shows that even if it does rain on your wedding day that it can still be special and you can capture some absolutely gorgeous moments.
