Despite an expectation to have a traditional Greek wedding, Melbourne natives Kali and Adam were intent on making the day their own. Settling on two industrial venues, the pair went for a contemporary city vibe, and Kat and Scout of It’s Beautiful Here were there to capture the fun.
With its faded patina, exposed bricks and glittering disco ball, the quirky Church of Bang Bang Boogaloo was the perfect spot to say I do. The hidden inner-city chapel was decked out with fairy lights and richly hued floral garlands handcrafted by Raven and the Rose, creating a warmth and ambience, every bit as charming as Adam and Kali had hoped. Industry pal Sam of events studio Balencia Lane was happy to lend a hand, and together she and Kali worked some styling magic.
With a cool and quintessentially Melbourne space ticked off for the ceremony, the reception venue had to follow suit and Kali happened upon Ellis Street Studio during an intense wedding research sesh. The South Yarra space was the perfect blank canvas – intimate but with plenty of room for a boogie. Tick and tick!
