Modern Elegance: Monika & Brendon's Tradition Filled Wedding


With a resounding energy of Croatian tradition, Monika and Brendon’s minimal yet elegant St Kilda wedding captivates from first glance.


Tradition is such a special thing. Sometimes it may only resonate with those directly involved, yet it sends a message, a message that the core of your culture is an important element in your life. For Monika and Brendon Croatian tradition played a strong role, making this wedding one to be captivated by, full of tradition yet full of minimal and modern elegance. 

With a Toni Matichevski gown that was gracefully beautiful and so striking in every sense of the word, and a bridesmaid palette of pure white, this wedding spoke of a modern elegance full of sophistication and class.

Tess Follett’s exceptional skills behind the camera ensured this wedding was captured with all the detail it deserved. The billowing sounds of the early festivities to the quiet moments shared between Monika and Brendon and the emotion of the evening speeches all sublimely captured and brought back to memory through the photographs.

With a traditional influence so beautiful and so real, Monika and Brendon’s wedding takes us on a journey and created a story which will be shared for generations to come.
