From the Bride... Pete and I met at a bar one night during after-work drinks. From the moment we met, we instantly had a connection, and quickly realised we had a lot in common. On our third anniversary, Pete organised a weekend away for us in Daylesford. He booked a villa on the lake with a log fire, popped the champagne and got down on one knee with a ring! It was very romantic and he went to a lot of trouble to ensure everything was perfect.

We had a short engagement and married 10 months later. We wanted a small, intimate, rustic-inspired wedding. Morning Star Estate was the first venue we looked at, and we fell in love with the beautifully manicured gardens, the vineyards, the ocean views and rustic charm of the historic buildings. Our ceremony was held in the Sunken Garden, with drinks and canapés served in the Rose Rotunda, followed by dinner in the Morning Star Estate restaurant.

Our reception was everything we hoped for; casual and relaxed filled with lots of laughter and fun. While our two-piece band had everyone up on the dance floor, our photo booth provided guests with keepsake images, and cupcakes from our tiered wedding cake were individually boxed and given to guests to take home at the end of the evening.

We were recommended Stuart Leishman Photography by a friend who told us “he has amazing photos featured on Style Me Pretty."  From the moment we met Stuart, we fell in love with his incredible work. Our wedding photography was definitely the one of the most important decisions we made, and Stewart’s passion and enthusiasm radiates through every image.

Our wedding day was so incredibly beautiful. It was filled with such an abundance of love and happiness from start to finish and we honestly could not have asked for a more perfect or magical day!
