Surprise Wedding Melbourne

When I first met with Jake and Jess they knew about their wedding as much as i did. They had a date and an idea; to tie the knot in front of their friends who thought they were showing up for Jess’s surprise 30th birthday, when in fact it was a surprise wedding.

This low fuss non-traditional wedding between a mad feminist and commitment phoebe (their words not mine) was nothing short of perfect. They arranged to have their friends walk from their place to their favorite spot when taking Guss on a walk, there they would exchange vows and then walk back to Jess’s uncles place with the most amazing art collection seen outside of a gallery.

Jess and Jake also preempted that some of their close friends may have wanted to say a few words so they kindly prepared a speech for a selected few. It was cunning and extremely funny.

Even though this wedding was stripped back from the details and planning usually associated with weddings it was bursting at the seams with family, friends, love and laughter.

The couple photos were taken at Footscray art center which is a creative hub bursting at the seams with colourful backdrops and perfect Melbourne city skyline views.

Congratulations to this wonderful couple and thank you for having me a part of your day xX
