formal vineyard wedding - Polka Dot Bride

formal vineyard wedding - Polka Dot Bride


Now I'm a fan of a relaxed wedding as much as the next person, but give me a formal occasion, a chance to dress up and see Mr Polka in a bow tie? I'll be early, I'll probably be knocking your door down for an invite because there is something oh so fun about getting dressed to the nines just to celebrate a love story. Jessie and Daniel's formal winery wedding did just that. The groom, in his bow tie, the bride with her exquisite veil and the guests who are equally as glammed up. Rachel Webb Photography was there to capture this formal occasion!

Jessie tells the tale of how they came to be. "We both went to school together but never knew one another. I was transferred as a manager to one of the retail stores Daniel was working at and we fell in love there!"

Jessie chose a strapless lace gown from Raffaele Ciuca. She did her own makeup - including ruby red lips.

Jessie walked down the aisle to England (Instrumental) - The National.

Jessie and Daniel chose Goona Warra Vineyard for their wedding, the bride noting, "The venue had a very rustic feel and was very simple and warm. The Great Hall was a nice size, cosy but not tiny."

Jessie remarks, "The ceremony was an exact representation of our love for both each other and God. It was perfect!"

Of their photographer, Jessie notes, "Rachel was awesome! Very kind and patient. She was willing to do whatever we wanted."

Sunbury Florist (03) 9744 2888 created floral arrangements for the day, white roses complementing the bridesmaid's sapphire blue gowns from Raffaele Ciuca.

Jessie chose a Hello Kitty cake as the wedding cake and it turned out to be one of her favourite parts of the day.

Jessie remembers, "The speeches made everyone tear up. My sister Tamsin performed with our dad. It was really nice."

Of their first dance, Jessie remembers "It was awkward! No one hooked my bustle, so every few seconds Daniel was kicking the train of my dress around. It was cute though. We danced to Thinking Out Loud - Ed Sheeran."

Congratulations on your marriage Jessie and Daniel! Thank you for sharing your day with us! Thank you also to Rachel Webb Photography for sharing today's wedding with us!
