Vicki and Pedro’s Melbourne wedding at Abbotsford Convent was a simply beautiful celebration to photograph.
I think what made this wedding special was the exuberance and romance that surrounded Vicki and Pedro, and their family and friends.
Vicki was the blushing bride and she wore a stunning lace dress made by New York designer Lazaro.
Her hair was beautifully vintage with a sweeping wave reminiscent of a bygone era.
Pedro stood tall and handsome. He had a very original look, with a slim fitting grey suit and a formal bow tie.
They were married underneath a gorgeous bower of pink, purple and white roses draped amongst luscious greenery in the courtyard of Abbotsford Convent, one of Melbourne’s iconic heritage properties.
Flowers girls dressed in cute blush coloured dresses from Seed Kids held up a sign draped with ribbons that read `here comes the bride, while the guests waved small handcrafted congratulations flags.
Wedding styling company The Style Co adorned the ceremony and reception with hundreds of flowers and greenery that gave the space a real sense of wild beauty. These wild flowers and simple beauties filled the celebration with fresh vivacity.
Pedro is Brazilian and family and friends came from Brazil and all over the world to help the couple celebrate. Each table at the reception had a label that named where the guests were from.
Vicki and Pedro met they were both working as sales reps and about two and a half years ago and exchanged business cards.
Pedro said he admired how self-confident and genuine Vicki was and Vicki said she was won over by how Pedro made her feel so comfortable and special when they were together.
Pedro made a surprise proposal to Vicki at the Qantas check-in as they were about to travel to Jamaica.
He carefully handed a camera to the woman at the check-in counter and bent down on one knee before asking her to marry him!
I am sure this true romance will flourish throughout their marriage!
