Hey everyone. No fancy words are required to describe this wedding. Suffice to simply look at these photos. I ADORE them. This feature has introduced me to the work of Lakshal Perera, and he has blown my wedding socks off with these artful images. Yes it helps that the wedding party is just so gorgeous, the blooms so pretty and the backdrops so jaw-dropping (and ahem, let’s not mention the rather handsome best man) However it is the rollercoaster of emotions that pour out of these pictures that really caught my attention.
Jenny and Sean, who are both doctors, married earlier this year on 29 March at The Convent Gallery in Daylesford, Victoria, Australia -it’s lovely to be able to share a non-UK wedding for a change and we hope that you love and are inspired by this one.
“Sean and I met at our university orientation camp located in Phillip Island, Victoria, Australia. We were engaged five and a half years into our relationship when Sean organised a surprise proposal in Koh Phangan, Thailand with a gorgeous, candle-lit dinner by the beach. We were engaged for one and a half years before we finally got hitched!”

“We fell in love with The Convent Gallery when we visited Daylesford in search of the perfect wedding venue. Because its gardens, surroundings and indoor spaces were already so beautifully arranged, we wanted to keep our styling simple and elegant to complement the venue.
As a result, we decided on a simple colour scheme of crisp white and green but also ensured we incorporated lots of personal touches throughout to add character.”
“I chose my bridal dress because I wanted a dress that was simple, comfortable, elegant and timeless. I fell in love with the lightness of the lace and the femininity of the shape. I couldn’t have wished for anything more. I decided to change into a more flowy gown for the reception so I could dance more comfortably, for not only our first dance but the partying on the dance floor afterwards. Our dance teachers definitely approved.”
“Lakshal Perera was the first wedding provider we chose after the venue. Apart from the setting, a good photographer was the most important thing to us as we wanted someone to capture our special day, along with all the emotions that it would bring. We knew good photographers would be booked out well in advance and had been told by our friends to check out Lucky (as he is affectionately called) as they missed out on securing him for their wedding. On the day of our wedding, Lucky was incredible.
He was so calm, helpful and professional. He there for every important moment and so many more in between without us even realising! When we received our photos only a few weeks later, we were blown away by not only their artistry but most importantly how they made us feel and allowed us to relive the day. Thank you Lucky!”
