Wedding// Mel + Vic// Hillstone St Lucia

Bikes. It’s not often that Brides choose to make speeches at their wedding. But I loved learning about Mel and Vic’s story through Mel’s words. I had the biggest grin when she started mentioning Vic’s love for bikes and bike riding (is it 10 bikes that he owns?). Vic had only moved to Brisbane a couple of years ago to be with Mel. She was concerned at first as it seemed that Vic was miserable being so far from family and friends. But it was Vic’s passion for bikes and bike riding that helped him meet a great bunch of friends with the same interests…and soon things became rosy and Brisbane became HOME. The story was evidence of how much Vic loved Mel to leave everything to be with her, and how much Mel loved Vic that she could only be happy if Vic was happy. But the reason why I was grinning when I heard about bikes, was that Kostas is crazy about bike riding too…and that was in fact how Kostas and Vic met. So in a nutshell, if it weren’t for bikes we could quite possibly have not met these spectacular people nor would we have had the opportunity to document such a happy day.
