Haley and Christopher Davies tied the knot in Melbourne on the 8th of July 2016 with a gorgeous 1920s-inspired theme, captured by Emma Wise Photography.
The couple, who first met when they were introduced by a mutual friend in high school, were married at St Dominic’s Parish in Camberwell with their reception at Leonda by the Yarra in Hawthorn.
They managed to incorporate a fun, yet stunning, photo shoot at the art deco Rivoli cinema in Camberwell into their big day as well that perfectly complemented their 1920s theme.
“We were both very relaxed throughout the day which made time fly from morning to night,” Haley said.
“We were very prepared for it to rain on our big day but we were blessed with sunshine instead. The reception was filled with dancing guests and our entertainment was out of this
“The food at Leonda was world class and we received com pliments for days after the
wedding. We were lucky enough to have location shots in a 1920’s art deco cinema which fit
our theme perfectly and we’ll cherish those images forever,” she said.
Chris says his favourite part of the day was bonding time with the bridal party during the professional photo session.
For Haley, it was performing the choreographed bridal waltz for all the guests during the reception. They worked with their MC for more than three months preparing it to be perfect.
Haley’s advice for any brides planning a wedding: “The more time you have to plan,
the more relaxed you will be when it gets to the big day,” she says.
“When looking for wedding gowns, try on all styles because dresses always look different on your body then they do on the racks.”
