From Amelia Claire Fine Art Photography… Ashleigh and Michael’s wedding contained so much loveliness. It was located on Michael’s father’s farm in Hyden, Western Australia. The sun was out, shining golden on the beautiful long grass, what more could we have asked for.
The whole day was a mix of DIY loveliness and gorgeous sophistication. The ceremony was held in the exact spot Michael proposed, on a beautiful rock overlooking the countryside. The reception was held in the barn and everything including all the lighting, old bottles and machinery strung up all over the walls and the wonderful old painted doors were made by the groom himself. What an absolutely stunning day in every way possible.

Set at a working cattle station steeped in history, you might not expect this Australian “I do” to take a luxe approach. But thanks to CL Weddings And Events and Divine Flowers, they struck just the right balance of rustic-glam with lush blooms, twinkling chandeliers, and cozy seating in every corner. The photos from Artography tell the story best, and there’s more to be seen in the gallery right here.

From CL Weddings and Events…Sara and Jamie’s day was rich in detail, color, love and plenty of summer rain! Yandina Station is a stunning working cattle station situated just 10 minutes from the beach, its rich in history and old farming charm. Sara’s styling worked with the rustic setting adding tonnes of color with her floral design and stunning luxe furnishings. Chandeliers were suspended in lounge areas, over the dance floor and guests dining tables. A bunch of stellar suppliers came together to make this day not only gorgeous but masses of fun and laughter.

Anytime a bride calls her wedding “epic” I am totally on board. Because in the wedding world, “epic” is the perfect combo of pretty + fun. Think a stunning Mr. & Mrs. dancing the night away with awesome friends and family, drop-dead gorgeous details and a breathtaking farm backdrop all captured beautifully by Purple Ribbon Weddings. Push play to soak it all in.
From the Bride… Coomzy wanted an outdoor wedding in the country and I wanted an indoor wedding in Melbourne, so we settled on a clearspan marquee at Collingwood Children’s Farm, which was the best of both worlds. We both like to party and have a good time, so we wanted to create a carefree and relaxed environment for our guests. The setting was very country and rustic but the styling was chic. We went for some amazing green succulents for the table centres mixed in with real pineapples. We did all of the styling ourselves (with help pulling it together on the day by Stylism) from painting each pot, to the kind of lights, to the style of bar – basically creating a venue from scratch which is an absolutely monumental task but well worth it in the end!
David and I both had seven of our friends to each to our houses on the morning to get ready. They were our unofficial bridal party – with us all day, but not with the same outfits! We had a Bedeken (a Jewish tradition where the groom checks his bride to make sure it’s the right person) to start our day. This was the first time we had seen each other in a week, so it was very emotional with tears of joy all round. The entire bridal party, with our immediate families, then headed to Collingwood Children’s Farm on a bus where we had some photos. David loves cars, so he organized a white 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air for me and my parents, which really set the tone for the day. An hour before our Chuppah (Jewish wedding ceremony) was to begin it started to pour with rain! We had factored in extreme heat in February, but not rain. It was a disaster and thank god I was hidden away in a room and David had to deal with making the call on whether to keep the ceremony outside or bring it into the marquee. We delayed the ceremony by 15 minutes and thankfully the rain cleared just in time for it to remain outdoors as we had imagined it. Rain on your wedding day is good luck, so they say! Cocktails and canapés were served right after the ceremony outside the open marquee and then the night began with the ‘hora’ – traditional Jewish dancing. This creates an amazing energy for the rest of the night, which was filled with some candid speeches, delicious food (catered by the absolutely amazing Fred + Ginger) and lots of dancing. We had DJ Mafia spinning tunes for us and her last track was the John Farnham classic “You’re The Voice” – it was epic!!
