I was very excited to be asked to photograph Ruth and Leigh’s wedding, especially when I heard that they were getting married at the same church that Scott and I were married in over eight years ago!
Ruth and Leigh had chosen to take their vows in front of family and friends at the beautiful, bluestone Church of the Immaculate Conception in Hawthorn. It brought back so many memories of when Scott and I took our vows that it felt like only yesterday that we were married!
This post is about Ruth and Leigh, not Scott and myself, but I just had to share!!
Ruth had some of her life-long friends accompany her down the aisle, including two of them who had travelled all the way from her home country of Ireland just to be there! Her bridesmaids wore purple, which co-ordinated perfectly with the boys in their charcoal suits. Ruth’s mother, a couturier, made her gown, which I have been told she had always planned on her daughter’s wedding dress to be the last one she ever made before she sold her machine. Now that’s special!
We went to a couple of my favourite locations before we headed across town to Bayview Eden in Albert Park. Ruth had chosen the lovely old mansion as the location of their photos, which I’m sure you’ll agree was certainly a fantastic choice.
Here are a few shots from Ruth and Leigh’s wedding at Bayview Eden.
