High school sweethearts. A picturesque proposal in during a horse and carriage ride in Paris–it sounds like a fairytale, but it also happens to tell the love story of Belinda and Michael.

Inspired by their romance, their wedding featured classically romantic elements: soft white roses, hanging greenery, white tablecloths and natural lighting. The elegance of the entire day was captured by Blumenthal Photography.

The couple tied the knot at Sydenham Macedonian Church, with a traditional Orthodox wedding. Michel and the groomsmen wore a fitted Calibre black suits and bowties. Bride Bellinda wore a floor-length veil over softly curled hair. Her Craig Braybrook Couture gown was the epitome of elegance. The soft white mermaid silhouette featured off-the-shoulder illusion cap sleeves, embroidery throughout the bodice, and a chapel length train.

Infamous by the Yarra proved to be the perfect reception space overlooking a stunning waterfront, mature trees, and centered near Melbourne’s vibrant art and business city center. All fitting for a couple’s romance that began 12 years ago and has lasted across continents.
