Ben & Emma – Panama Dining Room Wedding

Ben and Emma were married on April 28, with a relaxed ceremony in the pioneer women’s memorial garden at Melbourne Botanical Gardens. Panama Dining Room Fitzroy was their reception location.

Both the Pioneer Women’s Gardens in the Melbourne Botanic Gardens and Panama Dining Room were special to Ben and Emma. Panama Dining Room was the venue of choice for one of their first dates.And they also got engaged in Panama last year.

The royal botantical gardens was also highly appropriate as in the early stages of dating they used to do laps of the tan together, with Ben trying to impress Emma with his fitness!

They really wanted their wedding to feel relaxed and enjoyed by all as much as possible and this is exactly what they achieved.

This wedding was a bit of a privileged for me as Ben and I grew up as neighbours, with hundreds of memories of playing games as kids in our street. It was fantastic to see many old friends and family.

Photography wise, Ben and Emma were super keen on natural and candid wedding photography and we were absolutely blessed with some of the late afternoon light.
