Carmen & Steve – Balgownie Estate

CARMEN & STEVE – BALGOWNIE ESTATE – YARRA VALLEY WEDDING VIDEO

Being animal lovers ourselves, we totally digged Carmen & Steve’s idea of having their dog (aka baby) Bruno be a part of their wedding day! Their fun filled wedding was held at Balgownie Estate in the Yarra Valley.

PREPARATION

Both Carmen & Steve started their mornings on site at the resort in Balgownie Estate. Carmen spent the morning getting glammed up surrounded by her bubbly bridesmaids, parents & lovely soon to be mother-in law. The boy’s morning was far more relaxed. They just hung out in their super- hero socks and had some beers. Carmen & Steve both exchanged pre-wedding letters in the morning and as you can see in the video, Carmen is clearly shocked that they had written nearly the exact same thing!

CEREMONY

We made our way to the grand marquee that is nestled between the Pinot Noir vines and overlooks the Yarra Valley. The ceremony was going off without a hitch, when suddenly the rings were nowhere to be found. After a couple seconds of freaking out, a heroic Bruno made his way down the aisle, rings attached to his collar and saved the day!! Que the, “awwws!”

As guests enjoyed champagne & drinks inside the exquisite Melba room, Steve, Carmen, Bruno & the bridal party chilled amongst the vineyard, capturing lots of happy snaps along the way! We also want to mention that we loved working with Clarte Photography, this afternoon really was a blast!

RECEPTION

After a sensational sunset shoot, we made our way back into reception for some lively speeches. The best man had actually created a PowerPoint presentation… that is some true love right there! To end what had been amazing night, Carmen & Steve said goodbye their guests and hello to married life with an awesome sparkler farewell!
