olivia & lucas {melbourne, vic}

Cool as heck couple;  Inner-city gallery space;  Monochrome colour palette;  Plenty of coffee;  Welcome to a Melbourne wedding!

But, really, Olivia and Lucas are the coolest.  They are so chilled out and incredibly funny and so. in. love!  I had the absolute pleasure of meeting them last year and being invited to document their wedding in February and my, was it a chic occasion.  

The ceremony (during which a quote from Winnie the Pooh was recited that may or may not have reduced a certain camera-operating vendor to tears) and reception were held at 524 Flinders in the city.  After the vows we took a quick jaunt to a super special secret location (tipped off by my incredible assistant, Will) for some portraits and then a quick espresso.  

I haven't included every photo from the day in this post.  I wanted to focus on the little journey we took for portraits because I think they alone communicate the vibe of the day really well.  I have, however, included a few of my favourite moments from other parts of the day, because this is my blog and I do whatever I feel like here!

Olivicas proved that in no way does ‘simplicity’ mean a compromise in style.  Looking back on the photos now I feel like I was documenting some kind of old golden-era Hollywood, if Hollywood was in Italy.  I hope you feel that, too.
