Today I am thrilled to share this timeless and elegant Melbourne Wedding with beautiful pink and white styling.
Sam and Hazans wedding was a fusion of Turkish and Lebanese cultures and the focus of the day was on tradition and joy.
Following a beautiful private ceremony at home with family, those special couples portraits were captured around Melbourne
Afterwards a sparkling reception was held at the San Remo Ballroom.
There was drums, dancing, indoor fireworks and celebration and love all day long.

How did you and your partner meet?
We met at the Gym I had recently joined where Hasan was a personal trainer.
I had gone for an initial consultation and at our first meeting realised we both had attended the same high school yet were a few years apart.
I accidentally left my water bottle behind and he found an opportunity to message me. It was the chemistry and fun that brought our relationship together.
How did he propose?
Hasan proposed at home in front of family.
Tell us about your wedding gown and how you chose it…
I fell in love with the first dress I tried on when I walked in to the boutique.
I tried on a couple more dresses after that but I kept coming back to the first one, it was what I was looking for, and all I had dreamed of.
I wanted a long train and sleeves and th dress was all that and more..
What sort of style did you envision for your wedding day?
For our day I envisaged a timeless, vintage look with gold details throughout..
What was your favourite moment from the day?
My favourite recollection was walking into the venue and seeing all those we love. It was a reminder of what great family and friends we have.
What’s your most important piece of advice for creating and maintaining a strong relationship?
You have to have trust – without it it’s difficult to lay the foundation for your relationship.
And always treat each other as if you’re on your first date, it important to maintain effort and spark in your marriage.
Any tips that you can give to future brides?
Things are bound to go wrong, but you just have to roll with it and not let minor things spoil the day.
My advice is to just make the most of every moment, before you know it, the night is over and you’re saying goodbye to your guests.
