Maddy & Tolga // An upbeat party at Two Ton Max, Melbourne

Weddings are starting to change these days. More and more couples are doing it their way. Some are throwing out tradition, while others stick to what works, but Maddy and Tolga’s was a perfect balance of both.

I worked with the amazing Kyra Boyer (photos are all hers), and we both started at a quaint little Air B’n’B in Brunswick where we captured Maddy putting on her beautiful, unique dress her Best friend and bridesmaid tailored.

Then we headed to Mr Wilkinson, on the busy Lygon street for a first look. After that, we headed off for some photos and then Maddy and Tolga got to have drinks, and chill with their guests. So many couples are opting to meet each other earlier on their wedding day! It means you get to spend more time together on one of the biggest days of your life and I’m all for it. 

Then we shot off to Two Ton Max for the rest of the evening. It started with a beautiful ceremony with flowers done by Honesty Flora. My favourite quotes from Marry me Mantle was “Tolga knew he was in love when he thought about buying a property with her (Maddy)”.

Then the rest of the night started with an amazing entrance from Traditional Turkish Drummers and finished off with an energetic, packed dancefloor which I’m always excited to join (and capture).
