Julia and Mike were lucky enough to be married at this stunning family property at Porcupine Ridge, a stone’s throw from Victoria’s providore paradise of Daylesford. The idyllic property was the primary inspiration for the couple’s relaxed, country wedding, and the theme was kept fresh, with simple styling and natural touches.
With a classic rose petal aisle, the ceremony took place on the lawn by the property dam. Julia looked simply beautiful in Monique Lhuillier, while her gorgeous bridesmaids wore matching white Zimmerman drape dresses. The boys were decked out in Stuart Andary with Mr Porter pocket squares and the all-important Happy Socks.
The reception kicked off garden party style, with great music and signature Pimms cocktails on the lawn. The party then migrated into the marquee, spectacularly decked out in hanging floral installations by Prunella. Cookes Food created an incredible menu for the day, and according to Julia, went above and beyond to ensure things went smoothly. “Cookes were integral to the entire event, giving us advice the whole way through and managing everything for us on the day”
Lilli Waters of I Got You Babe captured the day in her trademark vintage style, and the couple were quick to sing her praises. “Lilli was fantastic to work with and was perfect for what we wanted from our photography. We wanted natural shots that captured the special moments of our wedding, without being too posed. She managed to capture the most beautiful details and the photos look exquisite.”
