Melanie and Jonathan's classic Melbourne celebration

Melanie Jonathan Real Wedding
Once Melanie and Jonathan were engaged, the bride ticked off the big-ticket items - venue, photographer, florist - before doing something a little bit unexpected...
She took a (well deserved) break from the world of weddings. Three months out from the big day, she picked up the planning again. "That's when it became frantic trying to finalise all the finer details of the wedding," she says. "Those three months were probably the most stressful. I don't think I've ever had to make so many decisions in such a short period of time in my life." Luckily, the dress was already taken care of and Melanie has one of her leading ladies to thank. The bride heard about designers Mario CrocĂ© and Ines Colosimo through a bridesmaid, who had seen the duo on reality TV show Meet the Frockers and thought they would suit Melanie's style. "My bridesmaid was right!" she says. "I absolutely fell in love with their designs. That's when the whole process began of working with the designers - it was custom designed and made for me."

The couple hosted their ceremony and reception at lakeside venue Carousel in Melbourne. The elegant space was decked out with flowers that reflected the modern and romantic theme. Melanie and Jonathan also decided against having a traditional wedding cake and instead opted to spoil their guests with one of the bride's favourite treats: chocolate pops from Burch & Purchese.
