Brooke & Tom

As a wedding photographer, every couple I have the privilege of photographing has a unique and special story to tell. One such couple, Brooke and Tom, captured my heart from the moment I met them on the 14th of November in 2021, right in the midst of the Covid outbreak. Their wedding, initially planned for the 23rd of September 2022, faced the inevitable challenges posed by the pandemic, leading to a heartbreaking decision to postpone their celebration in Melbourne.

Brooke and Tom's unwavering love and commitment shone through even during these uncertain times. With Tom's family residing in England and their three beautiful children – Finlay, Niall, and Annaliese – by their side, the couple displayed resilience and patience as they navigated the changing landscape of their wedding plans. Finally, after a year that tested their fortitude, they re-booked their date for 2023, placing their trust in the promise of a brighter future.

On the much-awaited wedding day, which turned out to be unseasonably warm for October springtime, Brooke and Tom chose to celebrate their love at the Crown Tower in the heart of Melbourne's CBD. The panoramic view of the Melbourne skyline from their two luxurious rooms served as a breathtaking backdrop to their special day.

Brooke, with her Scottish heritage, paid homage to her roots as her father donned the family quilt for the wedding ceremony, adding a touch of tradition to the occasion.Tom's parents, including his mother with her new partner, brought extra joy to the event. Their presence not only added to the celebration but also stirred deep emotions, making the day even more special and heartfelt. Annaliese, one of the bridesmaids, wore her role with pride and grace, embodying the spirit of unity and love that defined the day.

The ceremony itself was a moving testament to the deep bond shared by Brooke and Tom, teeming with raw emotions and heartfelt promises. As the day turned into night, the wedding party transformed into a jubilant affair filled with love, laughter, and cherished memories. It was a celebration that transcended distance and adversity, a testament to the enduring power of love and family in the face of challenges. And as their wedding photographer, I felt privileged to document this beautiful journey of love, resilience, and the indomitable human spirit.
