Botanical Gardens Quat Quatta

Botanical Gardens Quat Quatta, Before we even met, we both always thought we would love to get married at the botanics – We were excited to find out we shared this in common.. Hudson made it even more of a preference for us as we shared special moments here together… days reading in the grass… walking through the gardens.. identifying Hudsons favourite trees… and of course the proposal itself. It was an effortless decision for the ceremony we envisioned…

The reception is a Victorian house in Ripponlea – Quat Quatta. we instantly fell in love with the receptions celebration of what we love most about Melbourne which is an appreciation for marrying the old and new. Botanical Gardens and Quat Quatta is where the wedding photography took place.

How we met: Our first date was at the NGV.. Hudson was attracted to Shaela’s silhouette standing in front of the waterfall wall and Shaela fell instantly in love with Hudsons high energy and piercing green eyes… after an 8hour first date – we felt inseparable and wanted to spend all our free time with one another.

Shaela had no idea such a birthday surprise was around the corner after dinner at entrecôte.
It felt like both a dream and a dream coming true. We were so filled with joy! We said the theme for the wedding should be: The Proposal Part 2
