Christine and Andrew’s stunning celebration took place at a gorgeous venue in Austrailia, Stones of the Yarra Valley. The color theme was mainly pastel tones. Seasonal flowers like roses, delphiniums, snapdragons, hydrangeas and dahlias, were complimented with seasonal foliage such as laurel, camellia, peppercorn, olive and ivy. There was a gorgeous hanging installation with tea lights above the bridal table which served as a centerpiece when people entered the reception.
From the bride: “We always wanted a picturesque venue. We visited over a dozen venues within the Yarra Valley, Red Hill and the Bellarine Peninsula, with Stones of the Yarra Valley early on in our search. On return, it took our breath away the moment we stepped into the chapel. Our decorations were minimalistic but included a welcome board, floral altar arrangements and pew ends in the same neutral color tones to creating a flow across the ceremony.”
As for their favorite memory of their stunning celebration, the couple says: “For her, walking down the aisle towards him in the chapel, followed closely by the wedding dance! For him, he unexpectedly enjoyed walking the gardens taking photos after the ceremony. He was with his beautiful new wife and we were taking photos which would become the memories of our wedding day.”
