Fresh country air, fields of lavender and the cutest furry ring-bearers you ever did see – Lewis and Diana’s romantic Daylesford wedding at Sault was captured in all its loveliness by Jonathan Ong.
“Jon took all the right photos without us even realising he was taking them! He was so professional and made us feel relaxed on the day. We couldn’t have asked for a better photographer,” the couple share.
Weekends away in Daylesford and a love of good food inspired Diana and Lewis to choose Sault as their venue. “The beautiful setting, cosy atmosphere and lavender fields, plus the delicious food, were everything we wanted in a venue,” the couple explain.
The simple, rustic decor of the restaurant was complemented by beautiful blooms from Wootton & Nicholls featuring pomegranates and small pears. Diana says, “Zara from Wootton & Nicholls has amazing style and she had our complete trust with her vision of the day. They were so flexible and a pleasure to deal with.”
Lewis and his groomsmen looked dapper indeed, wearing contrasting jackets and pants from Ralph Lauren with accessories by RM Williams.
Wanting a gown that was comfortable, flattering and would allow her to dance the night away, Diana chose the perfect lace number from Rue de Seine. She paired it with blue shoes from Marais USA for a splash of colour and a crown headpiece from Anna Marguerite Couture.
Lewis & Diana’s stunning cake was created by Blackbird Cakes. Diana says, “Sharon was lovely and very helpful. She also make very yummy cakes!”
Celebrant Ann Flockhart helped the couple to incorporate their beloved pooches, Spencer and Ruben, into the ceremony by having them act as ring bearers. A reading entitled ‘What I Learned About Love I Learned from my Dog’ also helped to personalise the ceremony for these two dog lovers.
A classic powder blue FJ Holden from Pete’s Classic Garage was the ideal choice for the romantic countryside setting.
Sault was everything Diana and Lewis wanted in a venue and the onsite lavender field was the perfect spot for sundown portraits with photographer Jonathan Ong.
