If finding happiness is the ultimate goal in life, then for Meg and Andy, the best years of their lives is only just about to begin. A love story that’s filled with so much intelligence, so much humour, and just the most adorable French Bulldog… what could be more perfect than that?
You’d never guess that Ellie and Declan have been together for a decade now. They playfully tease each other like cheeky teenagers, and you catch Declan’s eyes linger over Ellie like a giddy schoolboy.
Spending time with Ellie and Declan, we learnt so much.
We learnt that love, beyond elaborate gestures and the glittery fanfare, is about building a family, and being beautiful parents. We learnt that love is rubbing your husband’s head till he falls asleep, or simply telling your wife every day that she is, and always will be, the prettiest girl in the room. We learnt that after 10 years, waking up each day with the person you love still makes every morning feel like a brand new adventure.
We learnt that the love between two soul mates knows no time.
As Ellie and Declan danced into the night as newly weds, we just know that for this seasoned couple, the most exciting days of their lives is only just beginning.
This is one for the record books.
Painfully stylish and dapper. Yet, so casually cool and full of suave. If there ever was a movie made about Lovers in Melbourne, Alex and Nick would play the starring roles.
This wedding was a dream come true for the couple, but more than that, it was a symbol of true love that breaks down barriers and overcomes prejudices. Alex and Nick’s wedding celebrated love, in its purest, simplest and limitless form, and it was an inspiration and a calling for all to fight for love.
It was an absolute honour to be invited into the beautiful world of Alex and Nick. It was a sheer delight working with such a genuine and happy pair of lovebirds. And it was so hard, fighting back tears as the two showed the world why marriage, and love, belonged to all lovers.
Now, joined in heart and soul, forever, as husbands, we wish Alex and Nick the most blessed of marriage, and may their marriage and joyous celebration pave the way for many more brave same-sex couples to declare their love in just the way they want.

“Love isn’t always perfect, it isn’t a fairy tale and it doesn’t always come easy. Love is overcoming obstacles, facing challenges, fighting to be together, holding on and never letting go.
“Love is a short word, easy to spell, difficult to define, and impossible to live without.”
Indeed, as these wise words of the groom’s father echoed through the hall, everyone fell silent and took a moment to reflect on the meaning of love.
And then, you catch a tear trickling down Steph’s eyes, and you see Nath blinking furiously, trying to maintain his composure. And in that moment, you know, that this is the definition of love, and that these two lovers are fighters to the end.
Steph and Nath’s wedding day was just perfect.
It was the stunning florals; the luscious dark magenta lipstick on Steph; the intricate ringbox that housed the diamond ring; the rustic cake overflowing with flowers; the glorious gardens of Abbortsford Convent… the beauty in all the details, however, still paled in comparison to the beauty of the love that Steph and Nath shared.
They were a silly couple, our favourite sort. But beneath the jokes, laughs and witty words, Nath’s tear-filled eyes and Steph’s glowing smiles gave away just how in love the two of them were. They were one another’s ‘perfect someone’… you can just see it, and you can definitely feel it.
It was just magic. Love Tango x
The heavens opened and holy water poured down, blessing Sandrine and Domenic on their wedding day. On paper, it looked like every couple’s worst nightmare – thunderstorms, dark clouds, and even a little hail. But within the walls of St.Mary’s Church and Sandringham Yacht Club, magic was brewing. As the storms rolled in, the joy of this couple grew and spread to all their loved ones. And as rain pelted down, it provided the perfect backdrop and symphonic rhythm to the party inside. The Italians did the Tarantella, the Mauritians showed off their Sega moves, and Sandrine and Domenic proved that indeed, their love was strong enough to weather any storm, and their happiness glowed through the night.
There was laughter. There was rhythm, music, and the pounding of drums. But above all, there was love. As Steph pounced on Chris right in front of the priest, planting the biggest kiss on her new husband, there was love. As Chris melted into his beaming bride’s eyes as they met on the dance floor, there was love. And with the hundreds of kisses shared that special day, between lovers, between family, and between friends, there was so much love on Steph and Chris’ big day, and it was infectious. The Tango team fell in love with photographer Dean Raphael the moment we shook hands. We clicked, and we kept on clicking. Together, we immersed ourselves into the passion of the celebrations. We embraced the glorious sunshine, we braved the storm clouds, and we worked our magic on the D-floor.
OPA! OPA! OPA!
