Ashleigh & Darren

Ashleigh and Darren’s moody Stones of the Yarra Valley wedding is giving us all the heart eyes. We can’t get enough of Ashleigh’s dreamy Suzanne Harward bridal gown, the jewel tone florals by I Heart Flowers, and the actual jewels Ashleigh is wearing by Stephanie Browne – hello statement earrings. These romantic details were the perfect addition to their stylish wedding.
The Stones of the Yarra Valley is one of my favorite venues to shoot. The Chapel is picture perfect and is an incredible spot for any ceremony. There are also so many options for portraits, as you will see in the photos below.


“Jai from Free the Bird was an absolute dream to work with. We are both a bit awkward in front of the camera, but he was unobtrusive, so we just acted like ourselves while he worked his magic. A lot of our family commented on how great he was, never getting in the way of the day, but somehow capturing all the most magic and intimate moments. We have so many stunning photos, we don’t know how we will narrow it down for our album.”
