A Relaxed Urban Warehouse Wedding in Melbourne

Oh I do love a wedding with a relaxed, party vibe; throw in a warehouse venue and I am very happy! The urban warehouse space, Gather and Tailor in Melbourne, provided the perfect backdrop for Brent and Georgia’s wedding, and gave them a fabulous blank canvas to style as they wished… and style it they did!

The couple had an incredible neon pink ‘Til Death’ sign made, which they framed with an amazing floral installation, to create a great backdrop for the ceremony. During the after-wedding party, guests enjoyed espresso Martinis, doughnuts, delicious sharing platters of food, and lots of booze!

I really love Georgia’s style. She didn’t want a traditional wedding dress so chose a beautiful dress by Ellery, finishing her bridal look with “killer heels and some big, kick-ass earrings”!

Photographer Sayher Heffernan was behind the lens to capture this very cool urban warehouse wedding, and I am delighted to share Brent and Georgia’s big day…

Hilarious, Surreal and Perfect

“We met very late in the night, or should I say, early hours of the morning, at Pony, a bar in the city. It sounds cliché I know, but we just kind of ‘worked’ straight away and wanted to see each other all the time. Nine years later we decided to get married, so I guess we were both pretty sure we had found the right one by then!

“Even after nine years together and lots of chats about maybe getting married, I was completely surprised and had no idea it was happening! Brent had the proposal all planned to happen by the ocean (my favourite place to be), on the Mornington Peninsula where my parents live.

“However, in true ‘Georgia style’ I kept getting side-tracked while Brent seemed desperate to get me down to the beach! Little did I know, I was completely ruining his plan. In the end, he gave up and the nerves took over. While I set the table in the backyard for a big family lunch, he secretly placed my ring on an old tree stump in Mum and Dad’s backyard and proposed right there. It was hilarious, surreal and perfect all at the same time.”
