Sam spent her formative years in the heart of our nation's capital before her career path led her from little ol’ Canberra off to the hustling and bustling city of New York. It was in the dynamic metropolis of the Big Apple that she crossed paths with her future husband, Zee, in the very same office that they both worked in.
Sam & Zee made the decision to host their wedding back in Australia, at the picturesque venue The Marion, creating an unforgettable setting for their unforgettable moments. Nestled in the heart of Canberra, The Marion stands as a captivating venue with its timeless charm. Set against a backdrop of lush, manicured gardens, this exquisite location offered Sam & Zee an enchanting blend of modern elegance and natural beauty for their special day. In a heartwarming display of support and unity, Zee's family journeyed all the way from their home in New York to be part of this special celebration in the Australian capital.
The classy couple made a unique request of their attendees, asking them to wear neutral colours for their wedding. This distinctive choice not only added a touch of refinement to the celebration but also resulted in striking photographs that perfectly captured the ambiance of the day. This neutral dress code, set against the backdrop of Lake Burley Griffin, created a visual spectacle that added an extra layer of beauty and sophistication to the wedding album, making it truly unforgettable.
Walking down the aisle in her Jimmy Choo’s, Sam was an absolute vision of beauty as she made her way towards Zee waiting under the wedding arch. The couple were married by Steph Slater in a stunning ceremony and then made their way to the National Gallery for their newlywed photoshoot as The Mian’s.
With its art-infused setting, the National Gallery created an incredible ambiance for Sam & Zee to enjoy some quiet moments as husband and wife on their wedding day. Capturing small hand touches, the laughs, the glances at each other, before heading back to reception to celebrate with their loved ones.
