Claire and David chose to get married in March, which is Autumn in Melbourne. The perfect time of year in the Dandenong Ranges, where the trees are adorned with colourful leaves of orange and red, mixed in with the lush green of the gardens. It seemed like we were going to avoid the rain, with the sun filtering through the clouds most of the day, until the very moment that Claire and her bridesmaids arrived at Tatra. It was a mad scramble for the umbrellas to shield the bride from the rain, which did not wipe the smile from Claire’s beaming face.
They chose Tatra Receptions in Mt Dandenong as the venue for the ceremony, which was conducted by Celebrant Barbara Hilshorst, in the Tatra Chapel, witnessed by their closest family and friends.
Claire wore a stunning vintage inspired lace gown from Raffaele Ciuca , and carried a dainty bouquet of orange and cream roses. Her bridesmaids wore classic styled, navy blue dresses.
A special note that I would like to mention is that the car that Claire and her father travelled to the wedding in, was the same car that her parents used as their wedding car over 30 years ago. It’s been the very same car that has been used by many of Claire’s family and friends, so the history is something very special indeed!
Thank you Claire and David for asking me to be a part of your very special day xx
