As far as first meetings go, Jess + Julian first met working at Woodards in Blackburn… with Jess starting as a receptionist before joining the sales team a few years later. After clocking up many kilometres driving together for appointments, Jess + Julian discovered they shared common interests and soon sparks began to ignite – which brings us here today, to their wedding celebration.
What a superbly sweet day. You couldn’t have asked for better weather conditions – with the afternoon glowing in golden light and absolutely perfect from sun up to sundown. Jess + Julian were in their love bubble through the entire day – surrounded by those who mattered most to them and wanting to have fun and enjoy every moment.
We kicked things off (alongside legend Michael Briggs Photography – always a blast and a half) with preparations for Julian and the boys at Yarramunda – such a stunning place for getting ready and relaxing amongst the hills and sweeping views of Yarra Valley. Arriving at Jess’ tribe at Yering Gorge Cottages, it was time to pop the champagne (as you do) – with hair and makeup finished on cue by Reveal Hair & Makeup. After an impromptu dance party, Jess + her bride tribe slipped into their exquisite gowns (complimented with florals by Sugar Bee Flowers).
Arriving at Coombe Yarra Valley – my oh my, what a breathtaking place to celebrate your wedding. Such amazing grounds, staff, food and atmosphere. Family and friends arrived ahead of Jess’ grand entrance – I absolutely love the moment Julian saw his bride-to-be for the first time. The immaculate and all-time superstar Sally Hughes officiated such a heartfelt ceremony on the lawn, before soon pronouncing a new Mr & Mrs to the world.
You couldn’t fault their day… so much love, light and laughter throughout – these two are clearly destined for one another. As the sun set, the party continued well into the night with Lark Music pumping the tunes keeping the dance floor populated at all times.
Thanks so much, Jess + Julian for a stellar day!
