Now this, my friends, is what being a Rock n Roll bride is all about. It’s not about flowers, or favours or a fancy wedding venue. It’s not about what you wear, who your bridesmaids are or what theme you have. Being a Rock n Roll bride is about doing your own thing, marching to your own beat, and saying “I do” in a way that feels right for the two of you. That’s exactly what Rob and Edie did which is why I’m so excited to share their wedding with you today.

Married in Melbourne, their ceremony was held at the Marriage Bureau in South Yarra. After the intimate service, the headed to the Windsor Hotel for dinner with their guests.

“We met while skating at a skate park in Melbourne. I fell off my board and Edie (who was also skating) came over to see if I was OK”, said Rob. “We struck up a friendship by talking about things we had in common, and I asked her out for dinner. We wanted a very small and intimate wedding ceremony. We decided to elope to keep it a small affair with only a handful of people closest to us invited.”

“After the ceremony, we enjoyed a fancy dinner in our dining room at our penthouse suite with our small party. After we ate, all of us dressed up in the white hotel bathrobes and Edie and I got hand-poked love heart tattoos by one of our guests. Hanging out in our penthouse was the best bit of the day, and we also really enjoyed our group photos in and around Melbourne.”

“Our biggest expense was the photographer”, he continued. “I was friends with Sarah back in art school and we decided that we wanted her to photograph our wedding because we loved her style and creativity. She shared our vision and combined her own individual style to produce these amazing images of the day. The photos turned out absolutely perfect and we couldn’t be happier.”
