Phoebe and Luke, who now call Brooklyn home, brought a bit of New York to their Melbourne wedding, choosing the lofty warehouse setting of Fortyfive Downstairs to say their forevers. Photography duo It’s Beautiful Here were behind the lens for the understated affair, which centered around pared-back elegance with a fresh green and white palette.
Phoebe shares, “We chose the venue without having actually seen it in person – but it was a pretty easy decision to make! We loved the overall aesthetic of the space; how open and light the gallery is, the big, beautiful windows downstairs, and that it’s so tucked away in the middle of the city.”
Guests enjoyed a share style menu by Ed Dixon Food Design featuring lamb and barramundi, followed by canapé style desserts. Phoebe and Luke said that not only was the food phenomenal but the Ed Dixon team coordinated the entire wedding including the styling of the reception, working with Table Art to create an elegant tablescape.
Good wine was high on the list of priorities for this pair, who asked Pierre Geoffroy of Hampton Wine to select and coordinate the wine list. They say, “He went above and beyond to make sure we were happy (including sending numerous samples to New York for tasting!)”
