Jess and Luke tied the knot at Zonzo, in the Yarra Valley winery’s chic restored barn. With the sprawling vineyards as their backdrop, very little sprucing up was required, though Melbourne florist/stylist Bobilee certainly gave the natural flora a run for its money with the most beautiful blooms we’ve seen in a while. We Are Alchemy were in attendance, capturing the pair’s gorgeous country affair.
Jess was divine in a billowy Ivy & Aster strapless gown, paired with sparkly Kate Spade Charm heels – just about the most gorgeous kicks we’ve laid eyes on! Bobilee made sure this bride had her hands full, with a to-die-for bouquet and complementary corsages for the bridesmaids, while a baby’s breath flower crown and a crimson lip had her looking bloomin’ beautiful!
Luke donned a sky blue shirt and a simple grey ASOS suit with a waistcoat, sans jacket, while bottle cap badges from Etsy store My Hoard added some quirk and colour. This clever groom also lent his hand to some DIY endeavours, building the chalk-board, photobooth signs and hand carving the cake topper. A lover of ukuleles and guitars (in fact he builds them for a living) Luke even crafted the two pretty little ukes that hung from the arbor under which they said I do. Combined with cascading flowers, this arbor made quite the altar!
Good food was a deciding factor when it came to choosing a venue and Jess and Luke knew Zonzo was the right place from the get-go. They wined and dined their guests with rustic Italian cuisine, served on share plates between two long trestle tables. Feasting with family under a canopy of vines and festoon lights sounds like a promising start to a pretty sweet life together – as the Italians say, ‘La Dolce Vita!’
