Aimee and Brad

Marriage is always a huge leap of love and faith in a shared future – and never more so than when one of the partners moves continents for the sake of the relationship! This was the case with American Aimee and New Zealander Brad, who first met in a nightclub in Berlin. But they’ve now made Australia their home, and the strength of their commitment to each other came across loud and clear (and emotional) in their beautiful vows. Aimee’s American background played an important part of the day – in the tradition of the ‘first look’ (before the ceremony), and in a wonderful video of her friends back the States that Aimee had no idea about until it was screened at the reception (a surprise gift organised by Brad). Talk about an emotional screening!

Other highlights of this wedding were the beautiful ceremony put together by the very popular Andrew Redman (with special guest appearances by the flowergirls), and the food served up to the guests – Brad is a chef at the Royal Melbourne Yacht Squadron and this was a chance to delight family and friends with a range of his creations. Along the way, photographer John Warren contributed his usual sense of fun and playfulness to the day which helped the bride and groom relax and not be too self-conscious in front of the lens.
