Hannah + James // Montsalvat Wedding by She Takes Pictures He Makes Films


Held at the incredible Montsalvat Arts Centre – an artist colony in Eltham, Victoria, established in 1934 by painter Justus Jorgensen – Hannah + James’ celebration was lavish, whimsical and romantic. Alastair Innes and I were there as She Takes Pictures He Makes Films to capture it all.

With all of the venue’s cobblestone corridors and tiny doorways, wandering peacocks, iron candelabras and richly coloured artworks adorning every wall, this wondrous place easily transports it’s guests to another time.

Hannah + James were married in the gallery beside stunning leadlight windows, their reception took place downstairs in the Great Hall, and guests were invited to play outdoor games in between. We dined on a sumptuous feast while the couple surprised us with a moving bridal waltz… and we all basked the rich creative history of this breathtaking venue throughout the night.

Huge congratulations to you both, Hannah + James – thank you for allowing us to be part of this fairytale-like day. x

(*Keep an eye out for James’ Monty Python moment. These guys are my kind of people.)

Special thanks to Linda Hampton for her kind assistance.
