Sustainable, Native Flower Inspired Yarra Valley Wedding


Sarah Godenzi

January 16, 2024

Describing their wedding theme as "relaxed, welcoming and a little bit farmy", Erin and Adrian ultimately aimed for a down-to-earth and relaxed atmosphere. Their love for nature and passion for sustainability played a significant role in shaping the day, from their outdoor ceremony, their use of native flowers and even the bride's sustainable dress, which was made from the fabric of the one her mother wore when she got married.

Rea and Rhi's colourful woodland wedding is not only beautiful to look at, it's a totally feelgood day too. Their inspiration for the day was about community, with everyone coming together to support them and celebrate their connection. There's a beautiful communal spirit that oozes out of these photos. And with a colour scheme that extended to 'hot pink, yolk yellow, orange, salmon and purple', it was also all things bright and beautiful!

Bohemian Festival Wedding with Entertainment A-Plenty: Chris & Emmy


Kari Bellamy

Chris and Emmy were married early in the day, so they wanted to lay on lots of entertainment for their guests. "We wanted a day that was relaxed, fun and family-friendly", wrote the bride. "We had our humanist hand fasting ceremony at 10:30 in the morning, so we wanted to make sure there was plenty for our guests to do throughout the day. We go to a lot of festivals and run a dance tent with my family called the Griffin Tent, so we used that as a starting point, using the marquee and having a pub quiz and live bands in the afternoon. The river running through Loudwater Farm is the same river we both played in as children (we've known each other since we were 11!), so we had fishing nets and wellies for everyone to paddle. We added archery, circus toys, dreamcatcher making and an art and crafts den, and finished up with a silent disco."
