Sam + Abbey - The perfect ceremony at The Mercure in Ballarat

9 April 2022

Sam and his groomsman gathered together before the wedding ceremony.  They were well organised and joking around. It was great to get to photograph the children and their beloved greyhound otherwise known as a ‘Best Dog,’ who was also an important part of the wedding day celebrations.



Being part of the floristry industry, Abbey had her heart set on the wedding florist, The Petal and Press Co. to create the dream blooms for her marriage to Sam at The Mercure in Ballarat.

With Sam being a 'tall fella,' as my husband would say, Abbey hunted high and low to find the perfect arbour to suit their mixed heights for the floral arrangement for the wedding ceremony. It looked magnificent!
