Jess and Martin go chic in the city

When a couple’s been together for 10 years and engaged for more than two of them, it’s easy to assume they spent a LOT of time planning their wedding. 
But for Jess and Martin, they managed to pull together their chic city nuptials in less than six months, thanks to some awesome suppliers and project manager Martin’s spreadsheet handiwork. After a short but sweet ceremony by the Nymphaea Lake in Melbourne's Royal Botanic Gardens, guests headed into the city for an elegant reception at Alto on the top floor of the iconic GPO Building.

The most important thing for Jess and Martin was that their guests had a good time, which was guaranteed with the gourmet food and wine from
Damm Fine Food and award-winning wedding DJ and MC Bruce Harrison on the decks. In fact, so epic was the dance floor that photographer Leo Farrell stayed on to capture all the action.

The couple made sure they incorporated a number of personal touches into their day. As well as a round of trivia and a bouquet toss for all-comers, they also included a Polish tradition in which the bride and groom’s parents prepare two shots for the couple to drink – one of which is water and the other vodka. “It’s said that whoever gets the shot of vodka will wear the pants in the relationship,” explains Martin. “Of course, Jess got the vodka!”
