Leanne and Adam – The Celebration

by | Australia - New South Wales, Bride, Inspired Weddings,


Leanne and Adam had such a stunning reception! I can’t wait to share it with you in part two of today’s vineyard wedding feature! After photos in the vineyards, Leanne and Adam joined their guests for Campari and blood orange cocktails in the courtyard of their Tuscan inspired venue – Centennial Vineyards.

Guests sat at three grand long tables. Each table was decorated by Susan Avery and wrapped with masses of candles, copper beech berries and ivy. White lilies dotted the larger green displays spilling our from the mantle piece and urns around the room.

Leanne and Adam chose Centennial Vineyards for the Tuscan feel it had They also served their guests and Italian style menu. Their guests received homemade limoncello as a final, Italian touch. Leanne says she “had such fun planning, I especially loved my tables – amazing!”

Instead of a traditional bridal dance, Leanne and Adam both did a few fun moves to a non traditional song. Leanne found herself missing most of the dance floor action after she started playing the bongo drums! Leanne’s only wish for the day was that it had gone slower so she could soak it in!

Thank you to Leanne and Adam for sharing your beautiful celebration with us today! Congratulations! Thank you also to SugarLove Weddings for sharing the beautiful photos!

Leanne and Adam

With so many vineyard engagement shoots of late, it must be time for a vineyard wedding! Leanne and Adam married near Bowral and their entire wedding took on a vineyard theme with rich grape purples and rust in touches.

It seems only fitting that Leanne and Adam married in the Southern Highlands. Wine country was not only where they first met, but they both have a love of Italy. Adam proposed on Italian soil and the couple injected many Italian touches into their wedding day.

Leanne made the stationery with her friend Gill from How Design (02 8514 5100). Purple grapes were incorporated into the designs. Leanne walked down the aisle to “You & Me” by Lifehouse.

Leanne’s niece wore a little dress from Pallas but unfortunately nerves got the better of her before her walk down the aisle!

Yiovonne and Boon Wai Perth Engagement

Yiovonne and Boon Wai

There must be something in the water in Perth, because for the past few months, anyone shooting in Perth has made me giddy with wedding goodness.

Jenny Sun shoots mainly in Sydney and Malaysia, but trekked to Perth for this gorgeous shoot of Yiovonne and Boon Wai. Yiovonne wanted something “warm, full of sun, in the vineyards”. My favourite shots though, are the ones taken as the sun was setting. The couple’s faces bathed in the glow-y orange of the end of another day.

Sydney designer Helen English has always exhibited a certain element of grace when I have seen her gowns.

She creates a beautiful sense of femininity while not being frou-frou. It comes into play through her use of ruffles, pretty laces and draping. Her soft lines hide a depth of structure, ensuring each gown complements the body of the wearer.
