Set in Melbourne’s graffiti laden Rubix Warehouse, Sylvia and Yue’s indie wedding was fitting of these bartenders’ personalities. Georgia Verrells captured the relaxed nuptials, which were “a celebration of love, friends and family.”
The couple chose to get the formalities out the way a few months earlier, ensuring that every part of their ceremony was personalised to them and their beliefs. This was done with a little help from their friend Timmy, who acted as their celebrant for the day.
“We both live our lives in a way that is conscious and supportive of the people around us and unfortunately the formal legal words involved with a marriage ceremony do not reflect our beliefs so we chose to minimise the focus on this part of the ceremony and focus on what love and celebration does mean to us,” shared the couple.
Considering the couple became engaged at a cocktail making competition, naturally Sylvia and Yue knew how to throw a rocking party. Muso friends performed throughout the celebration and U, Ma & Me kept the vibes casual, comfortable and delicious with next-level grazing table. The spread was a huge hit with the guests and was finished off with a three-tier cheese wheel cake… brie-liant!
Yue and his dapper groomsmen were dressed by the gents at Oscar Hunt. A few vintage touches and native boutonnieres completed their sharp ensembles.
Sylvia worked with Melbourne designer Hanii to create her ideal frock, which she paired with her grandma’s fur shrug. With an elegant updo by Hania Glapa and sultry makeup by Jam on Your Collar, this bride had the vintage chic vibe down pat.
Photographer Georgia Verrells worked her usual magic behind the lens, and Sylvia & Yue couldn't have been happier with their images, telling us "Georgia did a ridiculously amazing job of capturing the day."
Sylvia and Yue tell us "our’s was the first ever wedding at Rubix Warehouse and Tanya and her team did an incredible job of making our vision come to life."
With a line out the door, we're not surprised that U, Ma & Me’s epic grazing table was a hit with the guests. “An absolute standout of the day was the food!” shared the couple.
Bride of many skills, Sylvia styled all the florals herself with a little help from Tesselaar Flowers. We’re particularly digging Sylvia’s smashing bouquet, made with natives and eucalyptus in moody hues.
