We're smitten with this Melbourne wedding held at CAROUSEL - a beautiful venue located on the water's edge of Albert Park Lake with stunning views of the city skyline. "It was almost this alone that led this venue to become our top contender. With many people coming from overseas - it felt like a great venue that international guests would enjoy." The gorgeous bride Kylee - a photographer herself, enlisted Sydney wedding photographers WE ARE ORIGAMI to capture her beautiful day with now husband, Ricardo.
Kylee shares with us, "For family reasons, the wedding had to be in Melbourne, however if Ricky and I could've chosen anywhere to get married it would've been between Bali, or Italy. We drew on this and brought in some Balinese elements to the wedding with wooden filigrees as our ceremony backdrop, capiz shell name tags and dusty blue bridesmaid dresses and table napkins to bring in the water element. I came up with the initial concept/design and then Sarah from BLOOMING LOVE EVENTS executed it and added her little touches like the idea of using crystals on the tables. We had a church ceremony the day before our wedding day and brought in the 'Italy' element to that, decorating the church with olive branches. There is a deck on the water where you can have the ceremony but also a beautiful indoor space that can be utilised if the weather isn't favourable - a great back up to have for an Autumn wedding in Melbourne."
