Beth & Luke - A Melbourne Fiesta

This next wedding is full of personal touches, DIY projects and Etsy purchases, all of which are some of my favourite elements of modern weddings. 
Luke and Beth were married on 23 October 2010 at Xavier College Memorial Chapel and held their reception at The Point on Albert Park Lake. There wasn't a theme for the wedding as such, just a love of the colour yellow and an aim to make the wedding a reflection of things they like.
Today's photos were taken by Andrew at Passion8 Photography in Melbourne and I think you'll agree he's done a fantastic job of capturing the couple's personalities and creative flair.
The talented couple designed and made their own wedding invitations which included a CD of their favourite love-related songs and a personalised guestbook.
There were fabulous Mexican elements thrown into the wedding, such as yellow Mexican papel picado banners and Mariachi Los Romanticos, a Mexican mariachi band as entertainment during cocktail hour!

Luke's mother used to be a florist so they were lucky enough to have her put together the colourful bouquets and set up the venue with Ball Mason Jars filled with flowers.

Beth's wedding dress was designed by Rina di Montella and her Mantilla veil was an Etsy purchase. The bridesmaids wore black dresses from Cue with beautifully contrasted turquoise necklaces.

A big part of Beth and Luke's life is their dog Tyson, who was not forgotten in the wedding plans. They had a cake-topper custom made from a seller on Etsy that included their gorgeous pup and he even got to wear a bow-tie on the day!
Beth walked down the aisle to Pachelbel's Canon in D, played by the Yarrabach String Quartet and the couple's first dance was to Lionel Richie's "All Night Long".
