  1. This breathtaking dress designed by Steven Kahlil and worn by Steffanie pairs a simple silhouette with the intricacy of the embroidery to create a subtle yet stunning texture. The low back elegantly creates natural curves and flows seamlessly into the flowering designs that then expand into the train. A satin belt has been beautifully crafted to hug the waistline.

2. Crafted by Helen Manuel and worn with the effortless beauty of Di, this dress features a plunging neckline that sits in stunning contrast with the delicate flower applique detail. The tulle skirt is perfectly complemented by the simple single layer veil, giving the dress gentle volume and texture. The sheer side panels are both elegant and alluring.

3. Here, Chev wears a beautifully simple silk wedding dress designed by Michael Losordo. The silk falls in a gorgeous natural silhouette which is counterbalanced by the structure of the delicate cross over straps and plunging neckline. The simplicity is further elevated by the Vionnet inspired bias cut silk panels that drape softly and accentuate the figure.

4. Ally looked absolutely incredible in a modern wedding dress designed by One Day Bridal. The high neckline complements the enveloping folds of the skirt base, creating a sense of elegance and length. The personalised open back and side panels introduce a gentle and curved intricacy to balance the striking geometry of the gown’s silhouette.

5. This simple dress worn by Van and crafted by Jason Grech creates a striking yet romantic atmosphere simply through the use of dramatic silhouettes. The voluminous folds of the Peau de Sole skirt become a feature point when paired with the beautifully minimalist bodice. The oversized bow at the back of the waistline accentuates the dramatic figure and adds structure.

6. Melinda’s gown employs a simple silhouette that draws attention to the fully sequinned fabric that falls in thick and graceful folds. Designed by Mariana Hardwick, this dress features an elegant split that parts to reveals her nude Valentinos. The sculpted plunge of the neckline works with the splits down the sides to create natural contours.

The simple fluted skirt and slimline bodice create a natural and flowing silhouette that complements the stunning complexity of the material. The scooping low back adds a really beautiful structural detail.

8. Designed by Silvana Tedesco, Haylee’s wedding dress is simple yet luxuriously elegant, with a hint of sexy. The fluid, figure hugging silk is paired with a high, structured neckline with beautifully crafted pearl detailing. The lower back cut out provides a structural detail that balances the high collar sculpted in a mandarin style.

9. Georgia wears a simple wedding dress by Toni Matecevski. The bold structural folds and sweeping pleats create drama through the use of a simple yet weighted, matte fabric. The front is tastefully cropped, revealing her heels because let’s face it; if you’re ever going to splurge on those Jimmy Choo’s it will be on your wedding day!

10. This final simple wedding dress, a vision by Anna Campbell and worn by Melody features a sweet heart shaped bodice that is effortless and classic. It is paired with a sheer full skirt, thoughtfully hemmed with horse hair to create a fluted silhouette. Detail is created through the way the flowing skirt contrasts beautifully with the sculpted structure of the bodice.

Beautiful Ange + Daniel held their elegant wedding at our all time favourite venue, Stones Of The Yarra Valley. With a gorgeous colour theme of nudes, dusty pinks and pops of red, sugar bee flowers put together the most stunning floral arrangements. Angela wore a gorgeous wedding dress by Mariana Hardwick featuring delicate floral applique, a plunging V neckline and a high split. The sheer floating shoulder pieces dotting with floral applique followed Angela playfully in the breeze. We can’t not mention Angela’s insanely gorgeous Jimmy Choo pearl heels and her elegant Maison Sebben pearl earrings holding a delicately folded gold petal. Angela’s reception wedding dress was by Jason Grech and featured the most stunning beaded corset paired with a short tulle skirt. Daniel looked uber sharp in a Jack Black suit. The bridesmaids wore pastel pink dresses Shona Joy.

There was not a dry eye in the room throughout their ceremony! Between formalities they enjoyed a stroll around the beautiful grounds of Stones Of The Yarra Valley. Ange and Daniel took our advice and had Like This Band get the dance floor started… And going till the end!

K + G | Stones Of The Yarra Valley Wedding

The fun loving Karen + Gary travelled all the way from Hong Kong to the Yarra Valley to have their destination wedding at the very beautiful Stones Of The Yarra Valley.

Combining a modern ceremony with an outdoor Chinese tea ceremony, their day was simple and elegant. Beautiful pastel pink and white roses decorated the tables + chandeliers draped from the ceiling of the barn. Like This band got the party started with a Conga line & the couple danced their way out under a line of sparklers.

5 Top Yarra Valley Wedding Venues val

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.

  1. Stones Of The Yarra Valley

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 :)

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 .

Aleks & Andrew - Stones Of The Yarra Valley Wedding Photography

Surrounded by walls decorated in religious figures adorning draped robes & golden halos, it's as if all the saints were gathered to watch over and witness this ceremony of lifelong commitment.

Aleks & Andrews wedding was actually our very first Orthodox wedding. We'd attending plenty, and now was our chance to capture all the beauty that is the Orthodox way. Aleks & Andrew specifically held their ceremony at the Greek Orthodox Parish of The Presentation of our Lady to the Temple, being the most beautiful & ornate Orthodox church in Melbourne.

Followed a beautiful countryside celebration at Stones Of The Yarra Valley, their day was a perfect balance of culture and tradition.

We are so thankful we get to work with such beautiful, kind hearted people that not only make us feel welcome on their wedding day, but believe in our art & completely trust us to capture their special day. We were overwhelmed by Aleks & Andrews love, happiness & kindness towards each other and everyone surrounding them. These two really are a match made in heaven. 

Not only were they super lovely people - but they also had great taste! Aleks wears a J'Aton Couture gown and Valentino shoes. Andrew wears Dolce Gabbana suit, bow tie & shoes. Their beautiful daughter Ariana wore a dress by Olgia Loro Couture and gold glitter Versace shoes - which she desperately wanted to gobble up!
