After six pandemic postponements, the seventh time was a charm for this Melbourne couple and their Sandringham Yacht Club wedding.
Carla and Mauricio’s Melbourne waterfront wedding ended with the most gorgeous sunset over the bay and guests clamouring to get a glimpse of it.
Their Sandringham Yacht Club wedding followed a traditional church ceremony at St Mary’s Ascot Vale on January 16, 2022, which was six postponements in the making.
Carla and Mauricio and their son Alejandro celebrated the uniting of their little family with 100 guests and loved ones. Baby Alejandro helped Dad Mauricio propose at just two weeks old when “Mummy, will you marry Daddy?” was written inside his onesie.
The couple chose Sandringham Yacht Club for its panoramic water views, delicious cuisine, and perhaps above all else, the promise of an idyllic sunset. On their day, the weather gods delivered.
Carla describes their style as classic meets beach, informed by fresh white roses, emerald and greenery accents, and timeless black tuxedos. Photos by Ateia Photography were the perfect mix of candid and posed, “they were so experienced and made us feel so comfortable,” Carla praises.
“After all the postponements due to covid, the seventh time was the charm for us,” says Carla. “Our wedding day was definitely worth the wait.”
Mauricio and I fell in love with the beach views at Sandringham Yacht Club. We also knew that the sunset view on our wedding day would be so romantic and picturesque. We were right! As soon as it was sunset, all our guests were outside admiring it. The service on the day from our event coordinator was brillant. We got so many compliments about venue view, food and drinks. Everything was so perfect! We would’nt change a thing!
