Coombe Yarra Valley is one of my favourite wedding venues in Melbourne and the Yarra Valley, offering a stunning location for a couple, family and friends to celebrate. Nathan and Kate’s love for each other is real, the way they look at each other just oozes bestie and life long partner. Surrounded by beautiful family & friends, loads of laughs, hugs & tears. So much emotion.

Here’s a bit of back ground info about Coombe if you are thinking of getting married in the Yarra Valley : Coombe Cottage, the former home of Dame Nellie Melba was purchased in 1909 and is set across seven stunning acres of manicured gardens. The provenance and elegance of the property makes Coombe one of the most sought after wedding venues in Australia. The property includes the main formal private garden in which you can hold your ceremony in a personalised variety of locations that suit the style, season and size of your wedding.

Side note : When I edit wedding photos, so when I sit down in front of my desktop and start the process I always enjoy the process looking at the spirit, the joy, the emotion, the contentment. I say this becasue when I’m at a wedding I don’t have time to reflect on moments as they are passing us by at the wedding, it’s the real beauty of a photograph. Re-living the moment.

When I first met up with Nathan and Kate we connected immediately and it was like that the whole way through. The wedding ceremony was perfect. There were tears, laughter and more tears… It was perfect from start to finish. There was a real coming together, it felt like that there was more than just a sense of getting married going on.

Thanks so much Nathan + Kate for having me out to Coombe Yarra Valley to photograph your wedding!

It sounds like a cult right, where some acid induced serious mind control, brainwashing, would go on. Mel’s dad mention this (Cult) in his wedding speech and I had a little chuckle to myself as I thought the same thing for a brief second.   “The Church of Bang Bang Boogaloo, is where we are getting married.”  O.k……. I thought. LOL!

Once I met Melanie and Sam it all came together. Super stylish and they pull it off at every turn, pretty hard to take a bad photo! Thanks for letting me hang with you guys, had so much fun.

Well our holidays are over and it’s back into the swing of things. We had a great time and are already planning the next trip! One thing I discovered whilst away was, I love the isolation of a place. The closest petrol station at one point was over 400 kilometers away. If you are thinking of discovering or going on an adventure in Australia, check out the Flinders Ranges. The northern part around Arkaroola is amazing.

So as mentioned I’m back into it and my assistant/2nd shooter Adrian is getting married to her partner. We did a pre-wedding engagement shoot down around Bells Beach.

It’s time to un-plug, it’s time to re-charge those batteries, it’s time to get away. The Leishman’s are heading off on holidays, we are pulling the kids out of school and road tripping deep into the Flinders Ranges. No internet, no mobile phone coverage and no devices. See ya when we get back!

But before we do that, I’d love to share this amazing duo, Michael + Jane. Below Jane has put together a little blurb about how they were just meant to be!

Michael and I met at work and developed a great friendship before we fell in love. Through the time we spent together, we learnt so much about each other and came to the realisation that we were just meant to be. When Michael proposed, I truly knew I was going to marry my best friend.

We couldn’t decide between a beach, winery or country setting for the wedding, so when we stumbled across Morning Star Estate it was an easy choice as this venue encompasses all three! Not wanting to be consumed with every little detail, we quickly got on to Short & Spook as our event stylists for their incredible creativity and guidance. These girls were unbelievable and made us feel as though everything was under control every step of the way. Michael and I really didn’t have a clue what we were looking for, but somehow from our ramblings and unfamiliarity with all things wedding, the girls managed to decipher exactly what we were after and delivered the perfect design that was just “us”. The day was incredibly relaxed, full of laughter, love and plenty of champagne!

Matt + Jess, you guys are mad! MAD in so many ways, mad in a good way! Mad love always wins!

Matt + Jess, their family and a bunch of their friends celebrated not just their wedding at Coombe Yarra Valley at Melba Estate but also celebrated everyone coming together. It’s not everyday that everyone close to you is under the same roof. Love that about weddings, catching up with old friends and re-connecting. It should happen more often.

Daniel and Erica’s Yarra Valley Wedding at Yering Station was awesome! It’s been a busy start to 2016 and big things are in the works for SLP! Stay tuned. 

From Erica!

Daniel and Erica’s eyes met over a casual dinner with mutual friends over 8 years ago. Whilst they didn’t speak that night, they had made a lasting impression on each other. A long relationship ensued involving a house, beautiful holidays and many spectacular dinners together. When Daniel decided to propose to Erica, he knew it had to be in a place that was meaningful to them. Daniel organised a stunning private dinner involving candles, a degustation dinner, champagne and rose petals on the beach in Malaysia. The entree hadn’t even been served when Daniel asked Erica to marry him. Erica describes this as the easiest question she has ever answered.

 On planning our wedding day, we had both decided that it was going to be a reflection of who we are as people and as a couple. Food and wine are passions for the two of us, so it was only fitting that Yering Station was our choice for our wedding venue. Our wedding was special because it was so authentic. It was just ‘us’. Our bridal party were so supportive and had a few teary moment themselves during the ceremony! We were completely blown away by the amount of love in the room and our guests made it such an incredible experience for us. I had spent a lot of time researching my ever talented suppliers and we were thrilled with the efforts from all involved. It was an absolute honour to work with them. It truly was a day we will never forget. We are so beyond happy with the images Stewart has captured of our day.

Hues of pink, oranges and blues blended in the sky. Peter + Jenny’s Yarra Valley Wedding at Stones of the Yarra Valley was amazing!  

As usual I love to get a blurb from the Bride and Groom about their wedding day. So here is Peter + Jenny’s fairtale.

He kneeled down on 1 knee and sang to me the first time we met over 8 years ago at a Karaoke bar … little did we know that little joke transformed our lives forever and marked the beginning of our happily ever after. 

The day fell into place perfectly and seamlessly .We both agreed that we wished our wedding to be a heartfelt one, one where the celebration was not only for us but an opportunity to honour our closest family, friends, our God.  Surrounded by our loved ones at the most beautiful venue – Stone of the Yarra Valley, with hues of pink, oranges and blues blended in the sky, we felt like we walked into a fairytale… our own fairytale.

A relaxed country wedding in the beautiful town of Daylesford calls for a celebration. Darrin + Hannah tied the knot in the gorgeous lakeside barn chapel at Sault restaurant in Daylesford. I love a Sault Daylesford Wedding!

Hannah was so awesome in providing a blurb about how her and Darrin met and how it was a jar of Nutella that sealed the deal :)

“Darrin and I first met around 10 years ago, when we were young and fancy free! We were living at Queen’s College, having moved from country Victoria to Melbourne to attend university. Darrin won me over fairly quickly with his wit and charm, definitely helped by a big jar of Nutella! 

After getting engaged in Lorne, we decided to continue the theme and get married in Daylesford, as we both love the countryside. Sault was the first venue we visited, and we knew instantly this was the spot for our wedding. The building, the grounds, the incredible food and wine all in one location – it was exactly what we wanted! Our wedding day was perfect, from the moment I woke up with the sun streaming in over the lake to the magnificent pink sunset over the lavender fields. The ceremony and reception were all that we could have ever hoped for, filled with so much love, happiness and dancing! Having all our wonderful family and friends celebrating with us was amazing.”
