Overnewton Castle in Keilor was where Monica and Frank decided to tie the knot. It certainly set the theme of their classic style wedding, with it’s old world charm and manicured gardens. The ceremony was held in the gardens and was conducted by Celebrant, Lynton Round. Whilst I was photographing the ceremony, I couldn’t help but notice the butterflies that had joined in on the celebrations, fluttering over the heads of the guests as they watched Monica and Frank make their vows.
Monica, dressed in a beaded couture gown by L’jais, carried a bouquet of stunning peonies in white and pale pink. Her bridesmaids wore lovely, floaty, soft grey dresses, that were teamed with vintage style posies of hydrangeas, peonies and roses in pinks and greens. Frank and his groomsmen wore black tuxedos with bow ties, and black patent shoes to top off the classic look.
The bridal party travelled by limousine into the city where they sipped frappes and lattes from Pellegrini’s Espresso Bar in between photos, then enjoyed a relaxing ride back to Overnewton Castle for a night of partying.
A night of dancing and celebrating was had by all, with a fantastic range of Assyrian and Croatian music being played by DJ Nader.
I promised Monika a few sneak peeks, so here they are!
