Holly Sheridan-Smith and Christopher Ravas prove a little competition isn’t unhealthy in a relationship.

The Melbourne pair met in high school while taking part in a battle of the bands. “We’ve pretty much been inseparable ever since,” says Holly, 25. “Our wedding was always going to happen, it was just a matter of when.”

Unfortunately it didn’t come as quickly as planned for the midwife and electrician who were thrown a curveball. “Our lives were put on hold…as Chris was in a car crash, and was out of work for two years,” explains Holly. “We always felt like it was never our time; family and friends got married around us, and we always thought, when is it our turn? And finally this year, it was. And it was beautiful.”

Their fusion wedding on June 8, 2014 was attended by 270 guests. A ceremony at St Mary’s Catholic Church in Williamstown was followed by a reception at The Luxor where Chris’s family ramped up the celebrations.

“The Croatians certainly know how to party and I just had a ball capturing all the antics, the dancing, the flares, the band, the drinking and the love that filled the room,” says photographer Jo Cush.

Holly’s bridesmaid dresses were from Myer. “I purchased the dresses on a whim…without any of my bridesmaids with me. They fit perfectly.”
