Tasha and Adam

This modern Melbourne Jewish wedding is such a feast for the eyes. From Tash’s incredible black and grey wedding gown, the stylish chuppah they married under, the incredible dancing, the sense of family and community that comes through every ritual of the day. Choosing St Kilda for their wedding festivities, photographer Joseph Koprek captured the day.

Kicking us off with how they met, Tash recalls, “We have always had the same circle of friends, but only got together after we finished school and have been together ever since. We were very close friends before anything happened and we haven’t looked back.”

Tash notes, “The best advice we were given was to stand back from everyone together, and just take it all in. The day/night flew by so quickly, had we not done this I would have been upset.”

Michael Strownix from Where The Grass Is Green styled the wedding, which the couple held at Encore St Kilda. Tash remarking, “Encore was the perfect venue for us as we were able to create our own vibe and we loved that it wasn’t ‘reception’ looking in style to begin with.”

Tasha remarks ,”We didn’t do a first dance, despite having a big wedding, we don’t like ‘all eyes on us’! The whole night revolved around dancing though, so there was plenty of it! ” The White Tree performed music for the ceremony and reception with DJ Mitchell Kurz leading the dancing until the wee hours.
