Rick & Marlies – The Boulevard, Kew


Rick & Marlies’ urban summer wedding was held on a magical sun-kissed afternoon in the middle of January. Their super cool love story, began when a backpacking Rick met volunteer worker, Marlies, in a Prague hostel.. and the rest as they say, is history!


The lovebirds spent the morning getting ready, surrounded by their closest friends & family who were all very excited. Marlies got ready in St Kilda whilst Rick was on the other side of town in Northcote. We really loved how chilled out & relaxed the vibe was at both their houses. There wasn’t even a glimpse of stress, just pure excitement for the day ahead & to celebrate with their nearest & dearest.


We then made our way to St Kilda Botanical Gardens for a stunning ceremony. The weather truly could not have been more perfect for this outdoor wedding. As the sun shone brightly over the couple & their guests, our sweet lovers shared their personal vows they had written themselves. It really was something special.


For the location shoot, we explored the surrounds of Kew Boulevard & Yarra Bend. The warm summer breeze made for such a blissful afternoon.. and working with our mate Brendan from Lavan Photography wasn’t too bad either! As the sun began to set, we captured some truly sensational footage, suffice to say we were pretty chuffed!


We then made our way back to Kew Boulevard for a night filled with crazy dancing & funny story sharing. We really loved being a part of Rick & Marlies’ day & will remember their uber-cool wedding for many years to come!
