St Kilda Wedding at Encore | Kristen and Edward

Encore St Kilda wedding

He stepped down, trying not to look long at her, as if she were the sun, yet he saw her, like the sun, even without looking.” – Leo Tolstoy, Anna Karenina

I think you can tell if someone is truly happy. They are literally shining from that happiness within. Infectious and so lovely to see. 

Kristen simply glowed on one of the happiest days of her life as she married her soul mate Edward in the presence of friends and family at Brighton Yacht Club recently with the wedding reception at Encore St Kilda beach. And although she looked stunning in a Luci deBella gown, she would have looked beautiful in a paper bag that day!

It was a gorgeous sunny day in Melbourne, so we spent a little time on the beach taking some photographs there, followed by a quick stop at St Kilda’s Catani Gardens on the way to Encore. And I have to say that the big bridal party were so much fun to hang out with, I could almost forget I was working! But I love the candid-ness and relaxed, happy feel of these images. I think that you can see the joy and love.

Enjoy a little piece of happiness …

My love of photography grew from wanting to capture as much of my travels and children's childhood as possible, and it is something that I have been loving for most of my life.
