Emma & Adrian’s wedding took place at The Stones of the Yarra Valley in Victoria, Australia was the setting, and it was a stunning, stunning day! Emma was radiant and Adrian smitten.
Here, in their words, and my photos, is the story of their day…
Favorite moments of the day…
Telling dad at the chapel door there was a piper.
Seeing Adrians face as i walked down the aisle as he kept saying wow… wow… wow…. you look amazing!
Saying the words I DO
Getting into the bathtub while getting ready in the morning…
The laughs with the girls trying to keep me calm in the morning
Driving to Stones in the car with mum and dad
Taking it all in
Giggling during the vows
The photos with the bridal party
The boys and girls picking me up and liz nearly dropping me!
Our first dance and the cuddles…
Entering the room and the high fives when we all got announced
The dancing as much as we could
The farewell arch that we made last forever
The car ride home
The bridal party and friends arriving home after the reception
Wow… too many memories.. i could really keep going.
Where to start… enjoying breakfast with the boys
Photos getting ready
Watching as the chapel slowly filled as all the guests arrived
Seeing Emma at the chapel entrance and being blown away by how beautiful she looked
Our first kiss and first dance
Having the barn filled with 141 of our favorite family and friends enjoying the night with us
After reception drinks back at our house
The BBQ the next day and being able to relive the whole day
Best wedding related decisions…
Having Lisa as our photographer 🙂 NO JOKE
THE WHOLE THING
Choosing JANE HILL to make my dream dress
Having Angie complete the perfect touches to our wedding
Our amazing matching stationary from Effemia
Having the ceremony and Reception at the same venue
The chopping boards and tomato relish
Our front table with all our old family wedding pictures- highlighting our previous generations of weddings
Advice for future couples…
Make your day about who you are as a couple.
Smile, Breath, Enjoy. take 5 mins out just for the two of you!
Try and take as much of it in as you can because the day will just fly by.
Have lists for the week leading up to your wedding because slowly you just start forgetting things if they are not written down.
Enjoy the whole day, take a minute at every opportunity to enjoy and relax in the morning because come the afternoon its full speed
Have your photographer and videographer stay the whole night its amazing the photos/footage you can get from the dance floor.

Once again, Lisa, you have truly captured every moment and told the story just the way they are! The real Adrian and Emma ( and family and friends) just radiate from every shot. I will revisit these pictures over and over….
These are incredible photos of a beautiful day!
I am literally crying looking at them all- they are so great, it makes me feel as though I was there! Congratulations to A&E, I am just so happy for you two. You look so truly happy, and what a great set of photographs to remember each moment!
Wow! Beautiful wedding…beautiful photos.
Oh my goodness Lisa, these are spectacular! I am obsessed with the dress and chandelier shot and her long veil that looks amazing in every photo! It almost looks like Italy in some of the photos (I love love love the one of her on the seat in front of the old building). Truly beautiful! xo
Lisa, words cannot express how beautiful your images are and how they have captured our day exactly how it was in our eyes.
From the bottom of our hearts we will never be able to thank you enough for your wonderful photos.
Love Adrian and Emma xxxx
I love the simplicity of the white dress laying on the bed.
great coverage, you have told a beautiful story with your pictures…well done!
Apart from the obvious, your images are killer, your processing is very unique. I love it. Can’t really explain the warm fuzzies I get, all I know is … it’s amazing stuff.
lovely candid work. that last shot is my fave!
Such a beautiful wedding. Hope you got a chance to sample some of the loca wine that the Yarra Valley is famous for 😉
Yes, I did! I came home with a couple new favorite wines 🙂
Beautiful work – I just love how you capture the moments again and again and again. WOW!!!
You really captured their day and told their story beautifully! Gorgeous work!
