Real Wedding – Zara & Daniel, Yarra Valley VIC

 

Stones of the Yarra Valley was the perfect backdrop for Zara and Daniel to say their I do’s and celebrate their love story, that began with their shared love of ballet.

A trip to Tuscany reminded them of when they first fell in love and their venue choice reflected the feeling they wanted to evoke – rich, warm and rustic. Inspired by their love of design, they chose a soft rose pink and rose gold as their colour pallet and ensured they accented their wedding day with this.
