Rhys & Suzie – Mills Beach – Mornington

By Photography, Real Wedding, Videographer No Comments

Rhys and Suzie opted to have a small wedding with just close friends and family. They thought what better way to get married than to have an intimate ceremony right on the beach. After looking around most of the beaches around the Mornington Peninsula, they found and fell in love with Mills Beach in Mornington. After some inquiries they found that they could have a ceremony right on the beach and a celebrant to officiate the proceedings in  Jessica Edwards – celebrant

Jessica did an absolute fantastic job of performing an intimate ceremony on the beach whereby friends and family found themselves front and centre of the proceedings which was full of fun, laughter and heartfelt gestures.

When Rhys and Suzie first came to us – Jiva Workshop, they wanted some really great photography of their day. They knew they had picked a picturesque setting and wanted their wedding photo’s to not only capture the scenic location but also the love they felt for each other.

Not having shot at the beach before we, went down to Mills Beach in Mornington to scout the location and see what would be the best way to shoot the couple on the beach and surrounds.

We knew we would get some absolutely fantastic shots of the couple with the beach, the beach boxes and the sea, butwe wanted to try something different and get a different angle that most haven’t seen before. That is why we decided to use a drone for photography only. As you can see by using the drone we were able to get shots that no one else would be able to get otherwise.

We were really ecstatic as were Rhys and Suzie at how they turned out and will be using the drone again to get shots that are truly unique.

Real Wedding | Tegan & Shaun | Mount Martha

By Real Wedding No Comments

Tegan and Shaun first met at Sofia’s Italian Restaurant in Frankston. Although they didn’t get together till much later, they worked together side by side. It wasn’t till after they had both left “Sofia’s” that they ended up hooking up and as they say the rest was history.

When we first met these two love birds and their family (they have two children), it was obvious just how much they loved each other and wanted more than anything to share their love for each other with the world.

They had decided on having the ceremony at “The Mornington Rose Garden” which is pretty much near the centre of Mornington with rows upon rows of carefully manicured roses surrounding a Gazebo in the middle and a lake towards the background that is home to an assortment of ducks and swans.

Getting ready, they decided that it would be easier to do their prep at the same hotel in Mornington at “The Tanti” Hotel. This made it possible to do something which is a little rare where they can have one last moment together before saying their vows to each other without ruining the day by seeing each other fully in person – (see video & photo’s below)

Then finally came time to say “I Do” at the rose garden. Shaun looked incredibly proud and ecstatic at seeing his children make their way to the front of the aisle and when he saw Tegan in her dress – well his eyes absolutely lit up. Seeing her in her dress might have been the reason why he found it difficult to get some of the words right when saying his vows to Tegan, which in itself made for a funny cute moment for the two.

After the ceremony, we went down to the lake and park with all the ducks and swans on display to take some snaps of the newly married couple. It was quite convenient having such a picturesque park nearby to take some great photo’s and video of the two.

Later it was off to The Dava Hotel in Mount Martha. The cocktail reception was held on the rooftop deck which overlooked the stunning Port Phillip Bay, which enabled some great photo’s and scenery as the we were all witness to a fantastic sunset. As night fell and people began to dance to Live Duo that were performing well known acoustic hits. Jaime, Tegan’s sister gave a surprise performance of a song that was specifically for Tegan and Shaun.

It was a magnificent night for a truly fantastic couple, well done and we wish you all the happiness in the world.

Real Wedding | Brett & Lizzie | Ranelagh Mt Eliza

By Real Wedding No Comments

Brett & Lizzie were teenage love birds that first found each other through mutual friends. Having seen each other around the traps on the Mornington Peninsula at the many different night spots they finally hooked up and the rest was history.

Now when it came to them making the next step and getting married both Lizzie and Brett fell in love with the picturesque shoreline of The Ranelagh Club in Mt Eliza.

The Ranelagh Club in Mt Eliza is situated overlooking the Port Phillip Bay and boasts scenic views of the beach and shoreline that during the summer months offers fantastic sunsets.

The day started at Brett’s house with the boys having a few drinks whilst they got ready for the big day, whilst Lizzie got ready with her bridesmaids at her mother’s house with her beloved dog looking on in admiration.

When it came time to leave for the venue Lizzies parents gathered together with Lizzie to wish her all the best and choke back tears.

The ceremony was simple and sweet on the balcony of Ranelagh overlooking the ocean whilst the tall ships sailed by into Melbourne via Port Phillip Bay.

Afterwards we got some absolutely beautiful visions thanks to nature giving us a wonderful sunset as can be seen in the video below and the photo’s. This meant that we had what they call “Magic Hour”. “Magic Hour” happens twice per day where the light is absolutely vibrant and makes for photo’s and video that are truly stunning.

The scenes in around Ranelagh with the beach boxes and small bushy fauna meant that we were able to get a variety of scenes from the one location.

Congratulations Lizzie & Brett
