Monique + Phil: ‘Love-filled and Magical’ Fitters Workshop Wedding
A chance meeting at a house party, combined with a highly orchestrated first date by then friend (and now groomsmen) was the beginning of Monique + Phil.
M+P took a very practical approach to their wedding, "only stressing about what we could control," so instead of willing beautiful weather they took matters into their own hands, opting for an indoor ceremony and reception at two locations that are beautiful all season round. The Fitters Workshop, because they "fell in love with the huge windows and warehouse feel" and Parlour Wine Bar, two boutique venues nestled amongst Canberra's coolest suburb, New Acton.
The wedding reflected the colours of our beautiful bush capital, merging the dark green forage, with hits of gold found in Canberra's sunrise and the light pink hues of our dusks.
I am always excited to see the wedding favours couples create for their guest and as a lover of plants and all things leafy I was very inspired by the thoughtful favour of beautifully assorted cacti (the petite pots plants were so cute). This gift is very telling of this couples style, which is nurturing, caring and refined. I know guests will sit their plant on a windowsill and every time they care for it will reflect on how special and love-filled M+P's wedding was - I know I will.
M+P; I had a ball shooting your wedding, you, your family and friends were so kind and welcoming. I sincerely enjoyed capturing the day. x
