Elegant Yarra Valley Wedding – Classic Chic


Traditional and elegant, Kristen + Tom’s wedding was in the quiet hills of the Yarra Valley, dripping with white and green florals and held in the most modern barn you’ll ever see! Captured by Kas Richards, this wedding was both classic and chic – fitted Mikaella Bridal gown, black Ferrari suits, long wooden tables, scattered white candles, fresh green and white foliage… this wedding is a dream (and we’re drooling). We talked with the bride about her experience:

“I loved our ceremony. Our ceremony was quiet religious and traditional, with Tom’s aunty flying all the way from the US to marry us. It was so full of emotion with the laughter from the best man passing the rings to Tom through Tom’s legs, to the tears shed cognizing that my dad was not able to be there to share the day with us.

It was so full of emotion. I was so excited and happy to be walking down the aisle and marry my best friend. Leading up to the ceremony I had never been so excited in my life. Knowing that my best friend was standing at the end of the aisle waiting for me, I just could not wait! I loved the moment the big wooden chapel doors opened and I was off. Could not wipe the smile off my face. Walking down, I could see no-one else but him. And there he was, balling his eyes out. The funnies thing was that in all of our six year relationship I’d never seen him cry, so that moment for me, was a moment I will never forget. After the ceremony, it was all just amazing because we were finally married!

I wanted the overall day to feel special, beautiful and romantic. I also wanted the guests to enjoy their day, relax and not have to worry about anything. I had arranged Brett from The White Tree to play chilled acoustic music for when the guests arrived. This was accompanied by a champagne station set up under the old oak tree, which created a beautiful atmosphere for the guests while they waited. Our farewell was beautiful too. I had organised a sparkler farewell accompanied by The White Tree playing Time Of My Life by Billy Medley and Jennifer Warnes as we went walked down to the departure car. I’ll never forget that moment.”

What is marriage to you?

Marriage to me is the ultimate commitment and acknowledgement that you will love and support the one you love for the rest of your life. It is a bond between the two of you that can never be broken, no matter what comes your way!
