Georgia and Josh achieved a modern yet timeless setting at the very beautiful Rocabella Santorini. Structured florals of soft pinks, whites and pastels surrounded by hundreds of candles complimented the incredible view of the sunset. The pool deck at Rocabella would have to have one of the best views in Santorini, setting the most perfect scene for a sunset dinner followed by dancing under the stars.
Making the absolute most of their photo time, these two spent 30 minutes in the afternoon doing formal photos with family, friends and bridal party and then another 30 minutes right on sunset, which made for the most stunning sunset light as well as a bit of moody romantic dusk shots.
Pallas Couture created Georgia’s dream gown which showed off her curves with a simple silhouette, plunging neckline and fluted train that moulded into the most perfect shape. The beaded detail on the dress glistened against the rugged scenery.

We adored the results of Fluers and Story Time Weddings teaming up for Alex + Kane’s wedding at Levantine Hill. A beautiful combination of delicate roses, hydrangeas and orchids paired with rustic magnolia leaves, subtly complimenting the woods & metallic accents of Levantine Hill.

Far from the old school dingy wedding reception venues, Yarra Valley has raised the industry standard by delivering impeccable cuisine and fine wines complimented by a backdrop of the visually stunning Yarra Valley. Having photographed venues all over the world, Yarra Valley is home to some of our favourite wedding venues. Here are our top 5.
As most of you know Stones is a fave of ours for SO many reasons. It’s hard to know where to start. Besides the fact that the grounds are absolutely stunning and for some reason as soon as you drive down that beautiful oak lined driveway your worries seem to melt away.
The Stones Of The Yarra Valley is a well oiled machine; each and every wedding is just as seamless and perfect as the next. It’s a true reflection of owners, Vonnie & Steve’s phenomenal leadership skills and high expectations. From the stunning Yarra Valley views, to the beautifully manicured grounds, intimate chapel and converted barn, all the way to their sustainability efforts. We could actually go on forever, but as they say, a photo speaks a thousand words, and we’ve definitely spent a bit of time photographing this beautiful property. Here are some of our faves :)
Here is a link to more Stones Of The Yarra Valley Weddings .
We love how Rob, the owner of Zonzo Estate, has transformed the property to reflect his passion for Napa Valley and it’s modern architecture and contrasting balance of wood & steal. The stunning views framed by the dark interior of the dining room, creates a warm intimate experience, perfect for a big long table feast shared with all of your faves.
We can’t help but feel at home while sharing a delicious roast lamb and let’s not forget to mention the most authentic woodfire pizza’s. The addition of the Zonzo Estate wines has got us hooked! Our favourite wine being the 2015 Zonzo Shiraz .
The history, elegance, beauty and romance of Coombe Yarra Valley makes it one of the most unique luxury wedding venues in Australia. Once the home of the world famous singer Dame Nellie Melba, Coombe Estate is surrounded by stunning award winning gardens - perfect for wedding portraits. In contrast to it’s history, the architecturally stunning restaurant is the perfect setting to indulge in exquisite seasonal, gourmet and predominantly estate-grown cuisine.
When we think about Yering Station, we think afternoons sipping aperitifs on the lawn & pastel peach hued sunsets over the valley. The restaurants high ceilings and modern architecture, create an open light filled space, grand yet relaxed. With multiple ceremony location options, this venue has endless opportunities.
If you are all about fine dining and fine wine, Lavantine Hill is the place for you! With a seven course degustation menu on offer, this truely is an indulgent experience all about food and wine. The modern architecture, earthy woods and metallic accents sets a stunning scene to celebrate your nuptials with your nearest and dearest.
We adore these two as much as we adore the way they did their wedding. Set on the scenic Amalfi Coast, surrounded by an intimate gathering of their closest family and friends. Welcome drinks, vows, dinner overlooking the coast, dancing under the stars and a recovery party at One Fire Beach made for the most incredible memories.
We also love that these two chose to do an intimate first see amongst the white washed cluster at NH Convento Grand Hotel Amalfi - photos below <3

Welcome to Marlo + Hugh’s perfectly heartfelt wedding day, filled to the brim with tears of joy, laughter, champagne towers and epic dance moves.
Held at one of the most grand wedding venues in Melbourne, Campbell Point house, Marlo + Hugh treated their guests to a sumptuous affair set amongst the manicured gardens.
We adored photographing these two and their beautiful, raw moments. From sentimental bridesmaids, to Marlo’s proud as ever dad walking her down the aisle, Hugh wiping the tears from Marlo’s cheek mid ceremony, all the way to Hugh hitting the D-floor with his very own mother of the groom dance! A vivacious family that will forever hold a special place in our hearts.

There are so many elements to this incredibly fun industry and so many areas that inspire our photography. One of those is floristry. I adore flowers. They are one of my favourite subjects to photograph. I have always wanted to learn how to grow, forage and arrange flowers, and believe me I’ve attempted to do all three in the past, but with no luck. This summer, I was given the opportunity to participate in the Oh Flora Tuscan workshop held at Puscina Flower Farm, to which I obviously jumped at - excitedly!!
We spent four glorious days with this beautiful bunch of florists from all over the world. Some women were just starting out and others had years of floristry experience, all were keen to forever expand and grow their skill set. I was truely inspired by this gorgeous group of women, including Tanya from Oh Flora and the sisters from Puscina Flowers. Tanya’s talent and energy is infectious and you can’t help but want to be apart of what ever amazing creative thing she is up to.
Puscina Flower farm was another world. This beautiful family, originally from Sicily, had moved to Tuscany in the 50’s. Originally producing Pecorino cheese, the three sisters converted the space to a flower farm, now organically growing flowers for their own floristry business. With the entire family still residing on the property, each day felt like Christmas Day in Australia. The kids spent their days swimming in the lake whilst Mamma cooked the most delicious traditional Italian feasts for us to indulge in.
A special mention to our Tuscan house mate for the week, Olive Cooke. I adored every minute of photographing and getting to know this beautiful soul. She trusted my creative direction and added so much heart to every photographs.
I was nervous as hell to start with, worried by flowers would look an absolute mess as they had in the past… But, thanks to Tanya and the ladies I think I did ok! Look. I’ll be posting more of my own floral results very soon. Until then, here are some highlights from our precious week in Tuscan heaven.
This beautiful Yarra Valley wedding was both elegant and relaxed, with an outdoor ceremony in the Italian garden, a sit down three course dinner in the Coombe Estate restaurant and to the end the night, an epic dance floor feat. live saxophone.
Kasey wore a stunning full skirt wedding dress by J’Aton, which was switched later in the evening for the most gorgeous mini skirt; ready for the dance floor.
Kasey and Phil’s fun loving energy was completely infectious and got everyone up dancing early in the evening.
Storytime weddings did a beautiful job, creating an elegant and classic wedding style by pairing crisp white wedding flowers with fresh green foliage.

Nat + Luke held their intimate and relaxed ceremony on the Deck at Circa overlooking St Kilda beach and Fitzroy Street. Surrounded by family and close friends, these two tied the knot, sealed it with a kiss and partied into the early hours! A little rain didn't dampen their day and actually made for the sweetest of moments.
So excited to share these photographs from the wedding of Joyce and Scott at Port Phillip Estate . Forecast for torrential rain meant plan B went into play. Instead of outdoors, their ceremony was held in the stunning cellar door of Port Phillip Estate which boasts floor to ceiling views of the rolling vines & Port Phillip Bay creating a dramatic and misty backdrop. Joyce was one of the most beautiful brides we have ever seen in Jane Hill - Bridal wearing the most insanely beautiful earrings from Oscar de la Renta paired with bold gold Gucci heels.

Chatting and laughing over wine like old friends, we hit it off as soon as we met Di + Ben! With their super relaxed and easy going personalities, we knew their day would be a treat to photograph.
Held at the beautiful Yering Station, Di + Ben were married surrounded by their closest family and friends. The outdoor ceremony led into canapes & aperitifs on the lawn, followed by a formal dinner then dancing into the evening. Beautifully styled with crisp white flowers and lush green foliage, Weddings of Desire did an incredible job complimenting Yering Stations modern architecture, clean lines and epic views.
Di wore a gorgeous classic cut dress by One Day Bridal and Ben kept it formal in a black suit and bow tie.

“When people hear the classic song 500 miles, they sing along in this very fun Aussie rock song type of way, but, when read on their own the lyrics are quite romantic. I mean, he would walk 500 miles for her and in this version, she would walk 500 miles for him, she wants to be beside him through everything and in that way the song is like a statement I guess of just how far one person would go for another, across the sea, up to the sky, through all the hardest times, 500 miles” - Renee, tobi music
“When I wake up, well I know I'm gunna be,
I'm gunna be the girl who wakes up next to you
And when I go out, well I know I'm gunna be,
I'm gunna be the girl who goes along with you
And when I come home, yea I know I'm gunna be,
I'm gunna be the girl whose coming home to you
And when im dreaming, yea I know I'm gunna dream,
I'm gunna dream about the time I had with you,
But I would walk 500 miles,
Yea I would walk 500 more
Just to be the girl who walked a thousand miles
To fall down at your door.”

Natalie + Rob were married at the beautiful Villa Vedetta Hotel in the middle of a hot Italian summer. An intimate gathering of 100 people from all over the world witnessed these two marry on the lawns of Villa Vedetta. Following the wedding ceremony, guests were led through to pool side for relaxed Aperitifs & digestifs in true Italian style. From there, the festivities continued on the deck with that incredible view over the city of Firenze to feast on Italian cuisine as the sun set and the stars began to shine. Being surrounded by so much history and that duomo backdrop was indescribable and unforgettable for all who attended.
Congratulations Nat + Rob! Wishing you a live time of happiness together.
