Vintage wedding photographer Melbourne
Jane and Joel wanted their wedding to be fun, colourful and summery. Their theme was a retro carnival theme to fit the ceremony venue, the Melbourne Zoo which came together so beautifully in the end.
Forging tradition, this duo opted for a ‘first look’, which meant they met two hours before the ceremony and shared a private moment and then went straight into photos. This worked well for them as it helped with the nerves and meant they were able to relax and get straight into the party after the ceremony.
