Gardens House – Fionna & Aaron

Gardens House, privately located in the surrounds of the Royal Botanic Gardens, yet again set the scene for a gorgeous summer wedding. Our stunning couple, Fionna & Aaron, held their ceremony in a cool, shady nook on the back lawn of the property with the ever professional Steve Mason officiating.
The bride arrived in her own vintage car which fitted in perfectly with the theme of the wedding, the colour of the car event matching the bridesmaids dresses.
Guests were able to help themselves to a refreshing mocktail on arrival, for which the gorgeous vintage cart was provided by the talented team at The Style Co who did a brilliant job on the overall styling.
 
Once the ceremony had concluded, the drinks cart was moved to the front lawn and later became the setting for the wedding cake.

Rippon Lea Estate – Carrie & Julian

Carrie & Julian were married at St Joseph’s Church, Malvern, on a beautiful October Spring day with around 100 of their closest family and friends. They celebrated later at Peter Rowland Catering’s Rippon Lea Estate.
After getting ready at home in the presence of her excited mum and bridesmaids, the bride arrived for the ceremony in an immaculate 1960’s Mercedes Benz 600 Grand Limousine, courtesy of Heinz Limousines. Carrie was radiant in a beautiful vintage style creation by talented designer Anaessia, opting for an elegant hand-crafted head piece over a traditional veil which perfectly complimented the lace detail and beading on her gown.
A Flower Affair designed the bride’s corsage as well as the bridal bouquet and reception arrangements.
Travelling from the church with their four bridal party members in the Mercedes Limousine, the bride and groom arrived at the venue, Rippon Lea Estate, before their guests. They chose to make the most of the spring weather and wander the grounds for some fantastic photo opportunities.

After making their way down the marble staircase into the ballroom and being formally introduced to their guests, Carrie and Julian proceeded straight to the wedding cake for the traditional cutting as well as champagne toast.
Cupcakes by Paolo were responsible for the amazing cup cake tiers which guests later took home to enjoy.

Rippon Lea Estate – Julia & Cameron

It was almost 10 years ago that Cameron’s sister, Caroline, introduced him to a university friend, Julia, at a crowded bar in North Melbourne and little did he know that he’d met his future wife. The two shared an instant chemistry that eventually led them to their Spring wedding day.
