Lidija & Matthew | Wedding Highlights

September 2, 2014

It was the obvious love these two had for each other and the coming together of both their vibrant cultures which made this an event to remember. Usually when we capture the Wedding of a mixed heritage couple, one tends to dominate, even just a little, but there was equal elements from both that made it so interesting – Lidija is of Macedonian heritage and Matthew is of Lebanese/Italian background.

From the morning, the festivity was on when Matthew’s best mate/man came over to Lidija’s house with her shoes (Macedonian tradition), then Matthew’s parents, family & friends came over to pick up the Bride (shared tradition) with more traditional music while Matthew waited patiently at Our Lady Of Lebanon Church in Thornbury.

After we photographed a few locations with the weather holding out for us, the couple entered their reception in true Lebanese style (Zaffe) where the bride & groom enter with Lebanese drumming and dancers with swords, awesome!

Congratulations guys, myself and I’m sure the whole reception had an awesome time, check out a few highlights,
