The 2013 wedding season started with a couple of culturally rich occasions.
First up, we had the wedding of Stef and Ben, who were married at St Haralambos Greek Orthodox Church in Templestowe. This was my first ever Greek Orthodox ceremony! I must say, the chanting and tradition of the ceremony were something I had not experienced before, and made it that extra special to be part of.
Stef wore a stunning gown by Melbourne designer, Mariana Hardwick, a lovely floaty strapless gown in white. Her bridesmaids wore apricot coloured, strapless dresses, perfectly suited to the hot Summer’s day that it was.
After a long drive through the Dandenongs and Yarra Ranges, stopping by the side of the road as we saw a photo opportunity, we arrived at Yarra Ranges Estate in Monbulk, where we were greeted by Wedding Planner Rodney from Weddings with Rodney.
We made the most of the property, taking photos throughout, before the reception was due to start.
I’m way behind on my blogging, so I’ve grabbed a small handful of images to share of Stef and Ben’s wedding at Yarra Ranges Estate.
