One question we're often asked is whether a lunch or dinner reception at Quat Quatta is better? We're not talking about the food. The food at Quat Quatta is a cut above other wedding venues any time of the day.

But we live in Melbourne, where rain often comes from nowhere on the sunniest of days. On this day, for Tim and Jess' wedding, the reverse was true. The forecast was for 42 degrees and so we prayed for rain, lots of it.
When I turned up at the groom's house on the Saturday morning to photograph the groomsmen getting ready, it was already hot. I came prepared with an eski full of ice and a dozen bottles of water.
