In the lead up to Hugh and Steph's wedding we had discussed the benefits of having a lunch reception at Quat Quatta, and that's what they chose - a lovely courtyard ceremony followed by a lunch filled with laughter, pie eating, a serenade and some emotional moments. We ended the day at St Kilda Botanical Gardens with some bridal party shots. A truly memorable day for such a wonderful couple! Don't forget to watch their video at the bottom of the page.Contact Us
We were excited to hear that Steph and Hubert were getting married at Quat Quatta because, as I've mentioned in other albums, Quat Quatta is our favourite wedding venue in Melbourne's inner suburbs. If you're considering having your wedding there, be sure to read our article on Quat Quatta - Lunch vs Dinner Reception. Back to Hugh and Steph - these two were easy going and always ready for a laugh, and with a beautiful sunny autumn day lined up, we were all set for a fun, awesome wedding set in some beautiful surroundings! Let's start with Hubert's preparation shots at his family home in Donvale with final touch ups at Quat Quatta.
Then Dani and I headed to Mount Waverley where Steph was getting ready with her bridesmaids and parents and a giant unicorn. Vanessa met us there so we had two photographers and one videographer to capture the rest of the excitement.
Courtyard weddings are always beautfiul at Quat Quatta. There's a certain sense of anticipation you get when you're surrounded by the tall hedges, clear skies above, guests on the verandah and steps waiting for the bridesmaids to walk through the gate at the back. It's the perfect blend of a casual yet elegant ceremony.
It's always nice for your guests when the reception follows the ceremony as it saves them having to leave and return later in the day. Quat Quatta have a beautiful dining hall that is wonderfully filled with natural light, great food and a large dance floor for Hubert and Steph's lovely bridal waltz.
Because this was an autumn wedding, it meant was still quite bright outside after the reception for our location shoots. We hung around at Quat Quatta for awhile as although the venue isn't extremely large, they have crafted many beautiful spaces making it a delight for photographers. Then it was off to the St Kilda Botanical gardens for some final shots of the day.
In addition to the photos and wedding album, we also produced the following Feature Video of Hubert and Steph's special day. We hope you enjoy watching the video and feel some of the emotion that we captured on the day!
