Melissa + Leigh | 13.10.18 | Mandurah Quay Resort Wedding
9hrs | Love Collection
The forecast was for rain (actually storms), but the weather held off for Melissa & Leigh to tie the knot at Mandurah Quays Resort & for their beautiful bridal party photos around Suttons Cottages in Mandurah. They were safely tucked away celebrating inside their reception when the storm finally arrived. Lets just say, my second shooter Julie & I may have ended up soaking wet after running to the car, ducking the lightening at the end of the night!
The day started with Melissa & Leigh getting ready with their friends & family at separate apartment accomodation at Mandurah Quay Resort. Melissa looked absolutely stunning, I loved her heavily beaded & encrusted dress and her bridesmaids looked gorgeous in a shade of dusty pink. Not forgetting the boys…these country lads certainly scrubbed up well! Melissa & her Dad arrived in style in a vintage Ford Fairlane with the bridesmaids following in a vintage Ford GT.
The day was a true celebration of love and the coming together of two wonderful families, you could feel the love & warmth throughout the entire day. A few reception highlights were some fabulous speeches, the shoe game, garter & bouquet tosses and a truly beautiful bridal dance, followed by a special parent dance. A final highlight was the bride’s dad doing the splits on the dance floor….and yes we captured it (scroll down)!
Congratulations Melissa & Leigh…we wish you every happiness and hope the images make you smile for years to come!
(Many thanks to my second shooter Julie van Oosten)
