Mt Duneed Estate – Alana & Daniel

Not even the cool and overcast weather could dampen a beautiful beachside ceremony for Alana and Daniel. Braving the wind, the surf coast locals exchanged vows at Barwon Heads Beach in front of 160 guests with formalities lead by senior ministers Bram and Dianna Manusama.
Following the ceremony, Alana and Daniel were lead by talented photographers Mikala Robinson Koss and Jesse Hunter of All the Love in the World to some nearby locations for some amazing photographs.
The Bride’s stunning dress featuring elegant lace and beading was from well known Melbourne Designer Mariana Hardwick.
A feature of the day was the fun, retro inspired wedding Kombi from Klassy Kombies which provided several laughs for the Bridal Party and was a talking point amongst guests.
When guests arrived at The Hill Winery for the dinner celebrations they were greeted by these cute flags, handmade by the Mother of the Bride and adding a personal touch to the venue.
The Cellar Door at The Hill was transformed into an amazing banquet reception, beautifully decorated by Amanda Flynn of Smellies Florist and complimented by spectacular festoon lighting from Solution Red.
 The Bride & Groom take to the microphone for a few formalities.
Guests dined on one of two mouth watering main course dishes of grain fed beef eye fillet, creamed parsnip, sautéed baby spinach, sticky balsamic shallots and finished shiraz jus.
Live music earlier on in the night was then replaced by DJ Francis Ware who opened the dance floor with the Bride and Groom’s first dance.
Guests enjoyed this four tiered wedding cake for dessert later in the light, along with a selection of cheeses before hitting the dance floor until late into the night.
