As how all good love stories start, Nicole + Jarrod first met on a Contiki tour of the USA back in 2011. After numerous nights of drinking and partying, they stayed in touch after the tour and went on their first official date on Valentines Day in February 2012. As they were both living in different states at the time, Nicole made the journey from WA to Melbourne and the rest was history from the moment they met till now, their wedding day.
What a splendid day. I count myself ever so lucky to work in my backyard - the Yarra Valley - with such cool and energetic couples like Nicole + Jarrod. They are the best types of people you'd want to spend the day with. Lots of laughs throughout, both kind and easy going and friendly - they both simply just wanted to party with their nearest and dearest… and that's exactly what they did.
Engaging in quality suppliers made the day oh-so-easy and stress free - a big tick for them and their tribe.
Firstly, held at one of my favourite places in Yarra Valley - The Riverstone Estate. Simply stunning from every angle and always treated so well filming there. Working alongside Michael Briggs Photography is always an absolute blast to riff off and to laugh non stop alongside. Their celebrant (The Bearded Celebrant) Sam ensured their ceremony was dignified and retold the story of how they both met. Shannon from Music with Memories - what a guy to keep the music pumping through the night and ensure the dance floor is well populated non stop.
Thanks so much Nicole + Jarrod for a great day.
