High school sweethearts Bec and Anthony married on a warm summers day at the National Gallery of Australia. The venue has a modern feel with its bold architecture and floor to ceiling glass windows. One of the best things about holding your ceremony and reception in the one place is that you and your guests don’t have to travel anywhere. Another advantage of holding your ceremony at the NGA is that in the case of bad weather, the undercover alternative to the sculpture garden also has a beautiful backdrop. An afternoon sun shower meant that Bec and Anthony opted for the undercover area for their ceremony, and you can see it in our photographs and video below.

Bec and Anthony combined photography and video to document their wedding, and it proves just how valuable both mediums are in that they offer different records of the day. After your wedding when the flowers are wilted and the cake is in your belly, the only investment that you can keep forever are your photographs and video. And your marriage! You’ll still have your happy memories, and though they might have faded in 40 years time you’ll always have your photographs and video to share with your family.

On the morning of their wedding Anthony and his groomsmen visited Groomed barbershop in Braddon for a shave. Groomed offer packages tailored to the groom and his groomsmen, with services like hair cuts and styling, hot towel shaving and shoe shining. The highlights of the reception were the emotional father-daughter dance, and Robyn’s (bec’s mum) impromptu solo dance performance to Sia’s ‘Chandelier’. Lucky for Robyn we caught it all on video!

Moxom and Whitney are the talented ladies behind the floral designs.
