Whilst residing in frosty Canada for a year, Kelvin and Mathew were on a date night at the local pub when the idea of a wedding popped into conversation. After brushing off the idea, the pair finished their drinks and headed for a bite to eat, then suddenly came to a mutual conclusion – why the heck not?
Four weeks later, with a celebrant and two friends as witnesses, Kelvin and Mathew tied the knot in their living room and then headed home to Melbourne to celebrate with their nearest and dearest. Through the lens of Daniel Brannan Photography, the party enjoyed a banquet feast and plenty of wine at trendy warehouse bar Rupert on Rupert.
The venue acted as a blank canvas for the botanical industrial styling brief they envisioned. “We wanted the space to feel like a life-size terrarium… almost like dining in a green house,” says Kelvin. Alongside the hanging pot plants, wall planters and glasshouse-like ceiling, the talented green thumbs at Glasshaus created arrangements of greenery and florals that fit the brief to a tee. A few quirky props filled the space with character, including an old-school motorbike!
