Opposing tales: Brodie and Andrew celebrate love at industrial luxe wedding


Brodie and Andrew found the perfect venue before they actually got engaged.

“From the beginning, I wanted to capture a contrast between the gritty industrial space and the whimsy of beautiful flowers and foliage,” explains Brodie about why they booked Gather and Tailor before they even got engaged.

“We live in St Kilda and really enjoy the opposing tales that a suburb like this can tell; our wedding day was no different.”

The Melbourne couple, aged 27 and 34 respectively, wed on October 10, 2018, after meeting at Brodie’s old high school where they were both teachers.

“During a school assembly I was wandering about while students were settling down and I noticed that he was fiddling with a camera. I marched up to him and struck up a conversation about the camera and what he was doing. I believe I asked him if he actually knew what he was doing!” laughs the bride. “For the record, I know nothing about cameras or photography.”

Brodie has some great advice for other couples tying the knot.

“Everything that happened on the day is what makes it all the more special. Roll with it and you won’t regret it!”
