Lauren and Ross' laid back Fitzroy Wedding

Lauren and Ross' laid back Fitzroy Wedding

Every good wedding has a good story and Lauren and Ross’ local rainy Fitzroy wedding is no exception. Back at the start of December Melbourne was forecast to receive a ‘once in a generation’ rain event over the weekend of Lauren and Ross’ wedding.

Now it takes a lot to get me worried about a bit of rain- but this was going to be more than just a bit. So, the day before their wedding I headed into Fitzroy to scout a definite Plan B- which was definitely put into place!! 

Lauren and Ross are Fitzroy locals, and planned their entire wedding just streets away from their unit. When I approached the local businesses in the area and explained the situation they were more than happy to help out a couple of locals on their wedding day.  We even to got take some photos inside Lauren and Ross’ favourite coffee hang out, Bon Ap- which made their photos even more special to them!

Other business (Zetta Florence, Brusnswick St) let us photograph in their spaces with just a day’s notice- talk about community spirit!

The rain was torrential throughout the day but it didn’t stop these two from laughing their way through the day, ducking and weaving through the rain between photo locations. It was wet and crazy and fun and Lauren and Ross wouldn't have had it any other way! 

Lauren and Ross' wedding has left such a mark on me.  I smile every time I think of them both. So much joy, so much love, so much gratitude.
