Mel &amp Mike

A modern wedding with a touch of vintage glamor? Why I feel that could be a splendid way to devote a day! Mel and Mike met at university but it took them a whilst ahead of they became a couple, they wed in a lovely ceremony that had the ideal mix of relaxed elegance and retro beauty.

Mel and Mike’s photographs had been taken by Sarah Kate Dorman. I really like the lovely light in Sarah’s pictures she has captured!

Mel walked down the aisle to “Sweet Issue” by Van Morrison. She remarks “I chose the song because it feels like really like. There is a genuine sense of hope and joy in the structure of the song.”

Mel and Mike were married at Claremont Museum (Not offered for private hire). Mel explains “Mike and I had been looking for a ceremony venue unsuccessfully for a handful of weeks. We wanted a space that was special and intimate. We wanted our guests to really feel like they had been a portion of the ceremony rather than getting a spectator. We had driven into the vehicle park of the Claremont Museum to verify out the nearby park. We didn’t like the park but the museum caught my eye because I had by no means noticed it prior to. We walked via it and the barn doors, the enclosed space &amp the view overlooking Swan River meant it was best.

When we approached the council to use the space we were told they’d never ever have had a wedding performed there but we had been much more than welcome to use the public space.” Lesley Gasmier performed the ceremony.

Of their photographer, Mel says “We found Sarah following she was suggested by one more photographer, who was unavailable on the day. Fortunate for us simply because she turned out to compliment our vision for what we wanted to capture on the day. She was also extremely approachable and the entire wedding party felt extremely comfortable with her. The resulting images were true to our personalities and timeless.”

Mel and Mike held their reception at Matilda Bay Restaurant. Mel explains “We have a lot of connection with Matilda Bay in common. In the summer time Michael and I often have sunset set picnics of Fish ‘n Chips &amp champagne down by the river. I went to UWA and Michael and a lot of of our close pals grew up in the location so picking Matilda Bay Restaurant for our reception felt like a excellent fit. ” Mike handmade the shepherds hooks that decorated the ceremony while the flowers and decorations at the reception had been offered by close friends.”

Mel and Mike had a casual and enjoyable first dance. “We danced to ‘For Annabelle’ by Band of Horses. There is a sweetness and light to this song that is not overly sentimental. We were supposed to have practiced the dance but since we had been so busy in the lead up and the day we by no means got the likelihood. So we winged it and I believe we did alright. Luckily Mike is a wonderful dancer.”

Guests had a surprise in shop, Mel explains. “I loved getting a flash mob of 20 samba drummers (Wasamba)  play later on in the evening. This is also a band that the mother of the groom plays in. It certainly took the party vibe up a level.”
