Dianne and Byron knew each other from when we were merely 5 or so years old, through family gatherings, parties & outings. The last time they saw each other was in their teens holidaying with family and friends….as fate would have it they were lucky enough to meet again by chance, some 15 years later at a Latin Club & danced and laughed the night away. Soon after they fell deeply in love and started their lives together.
Fast-forward to their stunning Wedding where they were both filled with endless amounts of gratitude, happiness, disbelief and excitement. As luck would have it, Melbourne had just come out of a snap lockdown 3 days before their Wedding.
“Weddings were banned for a week, we were homebound and had no idea what would happen until the announcement went ahead, 3 days before our wedding! We were both numb for that whole week, still getting emotional as I write this now, it was awful. However, by some miracle Melbourne went back to ‘normal’ for our wedding, we were sobbing as the announcements were made. We truly believe all that we endured throughout the rollercoaster that was 2020 & early 2021, is what allowed us to not sweat the small stuff & really immerse ourselves in our Wedding Day, our love for one another and have an energy throughout us on our wedding day that was palpable. Everyone still comments on how happy & lost in each other we were on the day & it is because love truly does conquer all, even a pandemic.”
Some of our most memorable and heart-warming moments throughout the day for the couple was spending time together on their beautiful location shoot. “Once the family & bridal party photos had concluded Byron and I had some time / photos to ourselves. Having him hold me, being able to kiss each other & be lost together moments before entering the reception room & getting the party started was magic. It is as if time stood still & no one else existed (not even the photographers!)”
Their first dance made them feel like absolute movie stars, a truly magical moment in time. “We chose a song in Spanish ‘ADMV’ by Maluma (we’re both of Spanish & Latin- American heritage), we had a saxophonist accompany our first dance song, they dimmed the lights at just the right time, everything about that moment was magic.”
