Christian & Simone. Italian Inspired Summer Wedding at Yarra Valley

“This is the place of my song-dream, the place the music played to me,’ whispered the Rat, as if in a trance. ‘Here, in this holy place, here if anywhere, surely.” ― Kenneth Grahame, The Wind in the Willows

This wedding was rather special, because I also got married at Stones and got ready to walk (or rather, wait!) down the aisle at Botanica Editions. It was almost like revisiting my own wedding.

These two locations hold a wonderful sense of place - the gentle droop of the weeping willow of the greenest summer green in the garden at Botanica Editions - the tall leafy trees flanking the driveway of Stones, ushering you in to rolling vines, the faint blue backdrop of the Great Dividing ranges and a new chapter together as the music starts -  it all brought a smile to my face.

I love how each couple makes a celebration at each venue uniquely their own - Christian and Simone's wedding in the Yarra Valley was inspired by his Italian background and their proposal in Florence; all nature, elegance and light.

I hope you enjoy this summer wedding.
