Take in the stunning serene aerials of Bali beaches, as the aqua glistens to the tune of Alex’s elegant gown. A true vision of beauty, she stands by the pool and smiles so calmly as she waits to be united again with her one and only.
As they hold each other closely, Alex seems to fall so gracefully into the surrounds of Scott’s warm embrace.
The day fades into a spectacular evening. Their guests celebrate with them and they dance the night away underneath a bed of fairy lights and stars.
Marvel in the dream wedding of Scott Pendlebury and Alex Davis as they escape into the night of one of the most beautiful places in our world.

A truly spectacular day was the wedding of Steven + Marija. A feast for the eyes and ears, not a single tradition was missed.

Steven’s family dance together while traditional songs are played. Both of their families are ecstatic to celebrate Steven + Marija’s union. 

Marija's father sheds tears, filled with emotion to let go of his beautiful and most precious daughter, and watch as she is taken into the arms of another man. A man that will love her endlessly, care for her and support her through all of life’s trials and tribulations.

Surrounded by crowds of family, they manage somehow to slip away into an intimacy of the night. Dancing into the darkness, as the lights slowly dim and the glitter fades, their love for one another shines through, eternally. 

You are the air that I breathe.

You are the fire that ignites my soul.

You are the earth that grounds me and keeps me wise.

These two seem to float. As light as air, Courtney stands, graciously on rocks, as the wind carries her long, dark hair. She is graceful as ever and a vision in white. 

Then surrounded by a sea of loved ones, they are propelled into the sky that dawns the joyful horizon. A sky of purple light as they dance into the night.

Nimrod is surrounded and rejoiced by his own family, as they help him prepare for the biggest day of his life. You can’t help but feel an extraordinary sense of togetherness. Like soil holds the roots of a tree, so too do each of their families lift them up to bloom, just like the sunflower Courtney holds; a symbol of loyalty & longevity. 

The fierce Dinosaur was trapped inside his cage of ice. Although it was cold he was happy in there. It was, after all, his cage.

Then along came the Lovely Other Dinosaur.
The Lovely Other Dinosaur melted the Dinosaur’s cage with kind words and loving thoughts.

I like this Dinosaur thought the Lovely Other Dinosaur.
Although he is fierce he is also tender and he is funny.
He is also quite clever though I will not tell him this for now.

I like this Lovely Other Dinosaur, thought the Dinosaur. He is beautiful and he is different and he smells so nice.
He is also a free spirit which is a quality I much admire in a dinosaur.

But he can be so distant and so peculiar at times, thought the Lovely Other Dinosaur.
He is also overly fond of things.
Are all Dinosaurs so overly fond of things?

But his mind skips from here to there so quickly thought the Dinosaur. He is also uncommonly keen on shopping.
Are all Lovely Other Dinosaurs so uncommonly keen on shopping?

I will forgive his peculiarity and his concern for things, thought the Lovely Other Dinosaur. For they are part of what makes him a richly charactered individual.

I will forgive him skipping mind and his fondness for shopping, thought the Dinosaur. For he fills our life with beautiful thoughts and wonderful surprises. Besides, I am not unkeen on shopping either.

Now the Dinosaur and the Lovely Other Dinosaur are old.
Look at them.
Together they stand on the hill telling each other stories and feeling the warmth of the sun on their backs.

And that, my friends, is how it is with love.
Let us all be Dinosaurs and Lovely Other Dinosaurs together.
For the sun is warm.
And the world is a beautiful place.


The couple who decided to get married on the hill. No fan fare with the minimum coverage we have. I often tell our couples that irrespective of the backdrop and how much is spent on the wedding. True beauty lies within. If you are full of joy then that will shine through and colour all you see. Jon and Siera are the most perfect of examples - Marcus Theodor.

Rebecca’s father holds her close, she smiles as she looks up at Chris, her future husband. 

He looks back at her, raising eyebrows, as though they share a secret language. He acknowledges her feelings and his smile suggests they are mutual - pure happiness, adoration, excitement and anticipation of their future together

They share sweet moments together in the Yarra Valley, amongst vineyards, nose grazing - we can’t believe we are together now. 

He kisses her at the alter, and it is clear from this kiss that theirs, is a love of passion. He bends her back in a sweeping fashion. Pure romance. 

As a prince would, he lifts her up, in front of the barn and holds her in the air - like a princess. As if to suggest, now the world is ours, my darling Rebecca,

They dance together and Rebecca looks at Chris with such affection. Her eyes beam with tenderness and warmth and she looks at him, in trust that he has her safe in his arms and won’t let her fall. 

The afternoon sunlight shines down on these two as though they are the luckiest people on earth, to have found each other. 

It’s hard to take your eyes off them, so don’t. Watch their love sparkle at Stones of the Yarra Valley. 

A seven and a half year journey leading up to this precious moment. Kostas and Marnie have stood by each other ‘facing all the challenges life has to offer, knowing that together’ they ‘will surpass them’, in Kostas’ words.

Marnie, a true vision in a Jane Hill gold sequin dress dances in the darkness as the light flickers through, holding her veil and then, then we see these lovers take each others hands, as they dance together amongst a sea of eyes, flowers and lights. There is something so gracious, but also cheeky about these two. The way they move together, so perfectly in tune, step by step, they walk through the city streets of Melbourne and it is so clear that these two just fit. Perfectly in sync.

“You are everything that holds me together” – Kostas.

Marvel in the ever handsome Kostas wearing an Ermenegildo Zegna tux, hold Marnie’s hand as she twirls and spins at their incredible reception at Showtime, styled to the ceiling with florals from Bouquet Melbourne. Keep your eyes peeled for some emotive imagery by one of our good friends, John Warren Photography.

"From the moment I met you, you surprised me, distracted me and captivated me in a way I never thought possible and I still can’t believe that today I get to marry my best friend” - Maddie

He makes her laugh. His cheeky grin lights up her heart and sweeps her off her feet. These two have so much fun, they will share many adventures together side by side, laughing, playful, as best friends. 

Anthony is infectious and has an enduring personality, evident in his search for his counterpart; 

“Maddie you were hard to find… but I’m so glad that I kept searching.. My love for you will be honoured forever” - Anthony

The day is made up of so many emotions. Some see the day as fun, joyful, and full of excitement. This is valid and true, however I see it a little differently..
Louie's first glance at Roxy as she enters the chapel his eyes well up with tears as he is overcome by the beauty before him. I see Roxy light up as Louie embraces her. I feel the warm sun on my back as i watch the newly-weds play in a field...I see union, I see life and I feel love...
My view is no more valid then any others experience of Roxy and Louie's day.
This is their day seen through my eyes and felt through my heart - Marcus Theodor

Anna Campbell Spirit Collection Teaser

The ‘Spirit’ collection was inspired by the idea that a brides’ spirit is what shines beyond anything else on their wedding day. As with all Anna Campbell collections, dresses are hand-finished in Melbourne, created from luxury, silk fabrics and finished with stunning beadwork exclusive to the label.

Anna approached C2 to capture and create a little sizzler for her upcoming Spirit Collection. We travelled to a distant shore, got our feet wet and thoroughly enjoyed the creative process.

The first steps, approaching the alter are the ones that show us the true beauty of anticipation. Lachlan paces as he approaches, as if to say he can’t get there fast enough. He can’t wait to see her again and hold her in his arms.

Lachlan crosses his fingers behind his back. Wish me luck! Then we see Bonnie enter, slowly. Back to Lachlan and his gaze, so centred on her, it fills his face with joy. His eyes light up, and he knows he doesn’t need luck now.  

They hold hands, as they make promises to one another and we know they will never break them. Two hearts filled with intent to love and only love. Pure and honest.

They stay side by side throughout the day and into the night, holding hands so tight - never letting go. 

She said: It was definitely love at first sight for me when I lay eyes on Baz. They do say that curls get the girls and Baz had the most gorgeous long red locks. That was over 8 years ago, and staying in love with Baz has been even easier. Baz is the most balanced, reliable, kind and trustworthy person I know. He has such a huge circle of friends, everyone loves him, he is such a people person. This is one of the things that made me fall for him. We have so much fun together, we love to sit and people-watch or spend hours talking and laughing. I can ask Baz to do anything for me, there's nothing he would not do. He is the kind of guy that would take our dog for a walk every morning without fail, even when it was pouring rain, pitch black and 5am in the morning. Baz is such a committed guy, once he finds something he loves he sticks with it. I laugh because he's even committed to his breakfast cereal. Just Right with honey every morning without fail. He won't deviate. It says a lot about who he is as a person, and also what he will be like as a husband. I know with absolute certainty he will always be there, even when I'm old and wrinkled. Baz will be happy to have the same old wife every day for the rest of his life.

He said: Kasia means the world to me… Its hard to describe a day without her by my side. Its an incredible feeling knowing that I will be waking up next to such a beautiful, kind hearted loving person every day for the rest of our lives..I love sharing every experience I go through in life with Kasia, it only makes it even more pleasurable knowing that Kasia is smiling right by my side..Its all the small things Kasia does that I love, like picking that perfect card to give to me on those special occasions, with the most amazing thoughtfully written words to express her feelings for me…I have learnt so much from Kasia in the time that we have been together and I am deeply humbled to know that there is so much more in life to experience with and enjoy as we grow old together…. this all unfold within the incredible Stones of the Yarra Valley.

Chris + Kate celebrated their union on the sunny shores and pristine beaches of Hamilton Island, a special place for them. As Chris tells us of his proposal to Kate, we are reminded of one of life’s most important lessons; seize the day. Walt Whitman once said, “Happiness, not in another place but this place…not for another hour, but this hour.”

Chris organised a private helicopter to take them to their own private island, empty but for a few birds. Chris had nervously been practicing for days, the perfect words to express how he feels about Kate. He had thoughts racing through his head. Their flight was nearly cancelled due to storms. The clouds had set in and the sky was grey as the rain poured down. Fate, however, was on his side as the winds cleared. The helicopter took them over The Great Barrier Reef and as his nerves cleared, so too did the skies. Suddenly the sun came out and filled their hearts with warmth as they landed to the perfect place.

All the words had gone. This was it. The moment was right, so Chris got down on one knee and asked in no more words than needed, “Kate will you marry me?”

Tears drew down her face as she said “yes”.

As perfect as that moment, their lives will forever be filled with the blessings and joy that life brings.

Watch their story unravel here, at the Hamilton Island Yacht Club.

It is late and the family has long since gone to bed, and here I still sit, punching away at the key. I need to write a little description about these two, as we do with all our couples. In a few lines we try and convey a feeling for the day. We aren’t fans of writing a blow-by-blow description, we feel the images speak much louder then anything we can write.

James and Elisse, what write about James and Elisse? Picture your best friends getting married, ones that you have shared so many adventures with. You have seen them at their best and worst. Imagine that feeling when you see her approach the ceremony and he is there waiting. That joy that arises, that pure happiness for another person without any self gain. Well that’s pretty much it, that feeling right there. I felt that when Ellise called my name and I turned to see her for the first time. I felt that when I shook hands with James in his log cabin. I felt that driving home after an exhausting energy packed day. I feel that now, when I should be lying beside my wife. Chances are, I won’t meet James and Elisse again, however, all I have to do is wait till next week, and there will be another just like James and Elisse just waiting to be captured, and I again would find myself amongst my best friends. – Marcus Theodor

Audrey’s smile lights up the room. Her joy and gratitude fills us with warmth. Ben gazes at her as if it is the first time.

“Audrey, you truly are everything to me. You inspire me to be the best version of myself. You are brilliant, talented, tremendously gifted and you light up every room you walk into. You always look as beautiful as the first night we met in Chicago. That night I fell for you. The next night I knew I would do anything to spend the rest of my life with you and I am so privileged that you’ve chosen me to be your husband... I am truly the luckiest man and I’ll do anything to make you as happy as I am.”

Touched by his kindness, her squeezes his hand tight and says, “Today is a memory I will cherish forever.”

Watch their journey from Chicago to Melbourne unfold as they dance the night away at Aerial. Stay tuned for stills by the wonderful Stewart Leishman Photography.

Belinda has hand written a letter of promises to Luke. He opens it up and reads aloud. His face shows the adoration and sheer gratitude he has for Belinda's love; for her beauty, her intelligence and her humour. He addresses the room and turns to look at her, "you took my breathe away as you walked down the aisle. I'm the luckiest man in the world to be able to call you my wife."

Belinda's dad is so proud, having watched her grow up into the woman she is today. He walks her down the aisle clutching tight to his little girl, then letting her go, to give her away to the man of her dreams.

She loves him with a passion. She recalls his proposal in Tasmania, telling everyone that "if you know anything about Luke, it's that he doesn't do anything by halves." It was moment she will never ever forget - "just like today".

To bear witness to the union of Jason + Zillan is to know they are beshert. There is a teaching from the Talmud, which says that forty days before a baby is conceived, God announces from the heavens whose daughter he will marry. The intrinsic desire to attach and cleave to another comes not from the brain's deep desire to feel validation, worthiness and importance but from the soul's yearning to feel complete in this world. That is why the urge and need to become one with another is so powerful that it overcomes the senses. It is something that the soul cannot survive without.
Jason + Zillan met in 1994 at a ripe time in their childhood, both attending the same elementary school. Neither said a word to each other. Neither knew what destiny had in store.
Zillan loves and admires Jason so much. She loves how caring, generous and extremely thoughtful he is. Although they are different, they share the same values. Jason is the most intelligent person Zillan knows. She cherishes their conversations and the way he supports and pushes her. She trusts him with her life. She holds back a tear and says, “You are the best thing that has ever happened to me… Who would have known in 1994 I would have been given a preview? You are my love, my life, my everything and I am so happy and excited to be your wife and enter the next phase together. I will try to make you happy every day of our lives. I promise to love you the way you love me every day.”
Jason adores Zillan, their adventures and the fun they have together. He loves her passion, her fire and emotion. Jason clutches on to Zillan’s hand, squeezing it tight. He smiles and says, “We are a team and being with you makes me a better person. I love you so much and fall deeper in love with you every day. You are my love, my life and my everything.”

The greatest love is the one that triumphs. It is not the struggle that defines who we are. What defines us is how well we rise above and overcome what we have faced. Will and Naomi’s love has endured all and it has conquered all. Their union is testament to the sheer determination of love in all its wonder.

Naomi knew from early on that Will was the one but there was one thing getting in the way; Will was not Jewish. She denied her feelings because being together seemed impossible but they found a way; Will would convert to Judaism.

“I have so much admiration for what Will did. There are not a lot of people in the world that could have gone through what he went through and persisted until the end. It shows his strength of character, his persistence and his love. I admire that.” Naomi

“Brought together for a reason” they both knew it “was a sign from the universe saying you just have to embrace this and make it work”. Through it all, the only thing they’ve never questioned is how much they love each other.

“There’s always going to be challenges in life and our journey will be no different but I know that with you by my side there is nothing that can be thrown at us that we can’t tackle together. I could go on and on about just how much I love you and how much you mean to me but we’ve got a whole life time to do that now,” Will.
