Rachel came to me as a referral. Any chance we get, we jump at Yarra Valley weddings, they are after all in our backyard. Plus this was to be my very first Stones of the Yarra Valley wedding, the first of many as it turned out.
Rachel wanted to be bold in her colour choices and draw from her Chinese heritage, reds, oranges and pinks were her favourites. Picking seasonal flowers that were bright and playful like dahlias, cosmos, roses and with some daring choices like dyed black Kenyan roses, made for a vibrant bridal party. The iconic chapel was filled with flowers that were then re-used on the reception tables, a way for us to stretch the budget further and make sure we got maximum impact. Unfortunately the weather was wet, this did not phase our loving couple who were happy to brave the drizzle for photos in the vines, taken by the clever David Campbell, who had come all the way from Sydney.
Inside the barn the festive vibe continued with a large hanging centrepiece over the bridal table. Footed vases with wild dancing cosmos and hawthorn berries filled the bare wooden tables, together with the extra flowers from the chapel. Taking inspiration from Rachel and Matt’s wedding invitations I helped them design and print place cards for guests, a seating chart and other signage.
