Yana and Ben were married at one of my all time favourite wedding venues, Gum Gully Farm. Nestled out the back of Silvan on like a hundred or so acres is the most incredible farm, now turned wedding venue. The owners, Kerry, Colin, Sue and Simon all live on the property, a real family business.
When you walk in the door you instantly feel a part of the family so it isn't any wonder that they attract the same kind of cliental.
Yana + Ben are just that, the most incredibly kind and humble couple. They ooze love for one another and you can't help but be swept away in their love bubble.
Yana rolled in the drive in a Kombi Van, driven by Ralf Fish himself. The Jeweller extraordinaire. Surrounded by her bride tribe, the champagne flowed and the giggles could be heard all the way down the road.
So after a little pow wow by the car, we were ready to get Yana and Ben MARRIED!
Yana's dad by her side, they made their way down to the windmill chapel. A gorgeous mud brick, wood lined, hand made by Colin and Simon masterpiece. Wood fire in side (and air-conditioning for the summer) it is the most cozy spot to be married.
Their ceremony was full of laughs. At times Ben looking like he had been struck down with hay fever (eyes watering just a tad), they stood hand in hand as their story was told, vows and rings (hand made by the amazingly talented Ralf Fisch) were exchanged and the stunning Michelle Pragt from In Photography was there to capture it all.
One thing that Gum Gully Farm has that everyone wants a photo with it the deer. So after the kisses and hugs and group photo with everyone. The guests headed to the bar whilst the bride tribe headed to the paddock to feed the deer.
With a tribe as big as Yana and Ben's there was plenty of fun to be had during photo time. Yarra Valley Catering there to keep them all nourished during the duration.
And to top off the photos there is always a trip up to Sue and Simon's top paddock where the views carry for miles, the sun sets over the tree tops and you can soak up all those just married feels with the two of you xx
