Non-Traditional Wedding at East Elevation, Melbourne — Thao & Matt

What more fitting to Melbourne than roaming down the cobblestone laneways of Brunswick east, a ceremony and reception at this gorgeous converted-warehouse cafe that is East Elevation, and these gorgeous outfits by Lover, Suit Shop, and Rachel Comey?

Non-conforming, Melbourne couple Thao and Matt weren’t afraid to do their wedding day their own way. From getting ready together, to having no groomsmen or bridesmaids, their vibe was “a fun party” and they nailed it. East Elevation spoke for itself, with exposed bricks, wooden beams and an abundance of greenery.

Thao and Matt met on a Big Day Out messaging board. This day showed exactly what I love about weddings - you don't have to follow every tradition, and to them the most important thing is that it's about celebrating love in the company of their family and friends. From getting ready together, to having pre-drinks with their family and friends before the ceremony - here is the day as it happened.
