Peta & Shane’s Melbourne Town Hall Wedding

“This is the hottest day EVER” exclaimed Peta as she made her way toward the Portico Room entrance at the Melbourne Town Hall back in February, but she was like a breath of fresh air when she stepped out onto the balcony, pausing for a moment as guests rose from their seats in her honour, before gracefully making her way down the aisle to her overwhelmed, yet extremely happy groom.

The ceremony commenced by acknowledging the couple’s families and thanking them for their love and support, after which both Peta & Shane’s parents gave their blessing to the marriage before we were all treated to an incredibly romantic poem that the groom had penned himself for the day – recited absolutely perfectly by one of Peta’s lovely bridesmaids.

After sharing a few laughs over their slightly awkward first date almost nine years earlier, Peta promised Shane that she would “always encourage, inspire and support you to live the life we both dream of living” after which Shane declared to Peta that she was “the most beautiful, loving and caring person I have ever known”.

A Holding Hands ritual symbolically brought their two hearts together, before they shared their first kiss as husband & wife to cheers and elated applause from family & friends.

And these stunning images, taken by the talented team at Lens to Life Photography, really do prove that a happy bride is the most beautiful x
