Australia - a Melbourne focus on a continent of options
Erin and Will’s aim for their wedding day was to create a relaxed, intimate and casual event with only 70 of their closest family and friends. It didn’t take long for Will and Erin to choose The Heide Museum of Modern Art in Melbourne as the venue - because they both love Australian art.
They decided to do a “first look” phototgraphy shoot before the ceremony - and it was the perfect way to see each other for the first time on their wedding day and have some private time together.
The wedding took place in the gardens, under a heritage listed oak tree, and the short and simple civil ceremony was conducted by an old friend of Erin’s. Erin and Will arranged for a string quartet to play, and said how lovely it was to stay with all the guests after the ceremony enjoying champagne and relaxing with everyone instead of beign obliged to disappear for a wedding photo shoot.
The reception was held onsite at the The Heide Museum of Modern Art, at Cafe Vue, which is part of Vue De Monde - Melbourne’s best restaurant. Because both Erin and Will are big foodies, having beautiful food and wine was a priority.
The floral arrangement was created by Amy Wright from Wunderplant, and were an amazing reflection of what Erin and Will wanted the day to be - simple, artistic and intimate.
Will and Erin made most of the decorations by hand or they got them through Esty, but all were personal in some way. Will’s uncle was the MC of the event, and Erin’s parents, Will’s mother, Will’s best man and Will all made speeches.
It was a fantastic night, with a dance floor under the stars and only their best friends in the room.
