After calling New York City home for four years, Tyson and Brigette brought their urban romance back to Melbourne to tie the knot. Photographed by Jonathon Ong, the couple truly embraced their love of the concrete jungle atop Tonic House’s rooftop. You wouldn’t believe this picture-perfect wedding was all planned from the streets of New York!
Adorned with floral pillars by I Heart Flowers, the Immigration Museum’s courtyard walls provided the perfect city haven for Brigette and Tyson’s ceremony. The couple then mosied on to their rooftop reception, eager to mingle with guests, gorge on Blake’s Feast’s family style banquet and get the party started.
From there, the party didn’t stop! Brigette and Tyson chose to serve espresso martinis over wedding cake (where do we sign up?!), danced to INXS’s ‘Never Tear Us Apart’ for their first dance, and finished off their boogie with a sax solo from DJ Dan Martin.
Finally, can we just take a moment to appreciate that dress! Brigette’s Georgia Young Couture dress characterised the city lifestyle perfectly through the architectural one-shoulder structure. As for Tyson’s threads, his look was complete with hot air balloon socks, a small nod to their romantic proposal.
While Brigette and Tyson’s wedding was more than pleasing to the eye, Brigette’s last piece of advice is to spend your energy and resources on making your wedding fun, not just pretty. ‘You cannot and will not make everyone happy…don’t get hung up on the things that will not matter 10 years from now’, she suggests. Hear hear!
