I photographed Melinda & Anthony’s wedding back in 2012. So, when I heard from them to organise a family portrait shoot with their Son, I was beyond excited to see them again and meet their gorgeous little boy! He was so cheeky, and so much fun! We had the best time. Their closeness and love for each other, amongst the playfulness was evident. Together, we created some beautiful memories for them to enjoy forever.
Can we also just take a moment to appreciate how cohesive their outfits were? They definitely took note of my recommendations in the “what to wear” guide I sent them! I am officially obsessed with how amazing the colours worked not only together, but with the location as well. So much in fact, that although I adore black & white photos, this entire shoot deserved to be shown in full colour.
This sentimental location was the perfect spot for their summer’s day family portrait shoot!

They chose a gorgeous set of 9, 8×12 inch photographs to display on their wall.
They also had so many more photos they had to have, so they chose my super popular timber folio box to showcase the rest.
There aren’t too many couples that are as naturally loved up as these two were on their wedding day. It was truly the sweetest, and they made my job so much easier by being completely and utterly smitten and so visibly in love.
The day started with many beautiful Macedonian traditions at the bride’s house, which was filled with many guests starting the celebrations early.
My gorgeous groom, James (who’s a total softie) was completely in awe of Kristina as she walked down that long aisle at the Macedonian church of St Nikola. You can absolutely see it and feel it in the photos, and I mean…. Just look at her! She was breathtaking.
A highlight of their day for me (which completely took me by surprise) is that they wrote their own personalised vows! I’ve only ever seen that once or twice in a church before, but it was definitely a first in the Macedonian church! And I’ve done many, many weddings there over the years! They were absolutely beautiful and so heartfelt, and this allowed me to capture the most beautiful moments for them during their ceremony. Yep, I still get teary even after so many years and so many weddings.
The reception…. Well, it was dancing, after more dancing, with live music and instruments and more dancing and traditions! I adored James singing a beautiful song to Kristina before their first dance. It was so romantic! Grooms, take note, because I have no doubt your fiancé would be over the moon with a surprise like this on your wedding day!
I hope you enjoy looking through all this gorgeousness from Kristina and James’s wedding day, as much as I loved being a part of it.
