Leah & Grant's Wedding Photography at The Riverstone Estate, Coldstream Victoria, Australia - April 2017

It was with great pleasure to have had the opportunity to be the wedding photographer for the admirable couple Leah and Grant.  What a beautiful and unforgettable wedding it was.   The day went quite smoothly from the early morning groom and bridal preparations, to later that evening as the happy newlyweds said farewell.

Groom's Preparation Wedding Photography Shoot

The groom’s preparation took place at Healesville Luxury Escape, a house with an awesome view overlooking the Yarra Ranges.

Bride's Preparation Wedding Photography Shoot

The bridal preparation was also photographed at Healesville Luxury Estate. Being careful to keep the bride and groom from seeing each other in the morning, we photographed the colourful and vibrant bouquet, the sparkling jewellery and the bride’s fashionable new shoes.  You can see the atmosphere was buzzing with the build up of joy and excitement for the day’s upcoming festivities.

Marriage Ceremony

The ceremony was held at The Riverstone Estate, a lovely venue on the top of a hill located in Coldstream, about an hour drive east from Melbourne., featuring breathtaking views of the distant mountains and valleys, The Riverstone Estate offered the most extravagant scene and a most remarkable backdrop for the ceremony, absolute beauty. A heart-warming ceremony it was, with Leah and Grant sharing their wedding vows amognst their closest family and friends.  The marriage celebrant added extra warmth to the ceremony with her inviting smile and kind nature.

Bridal Party Photo and Video Shoot

Being spoilt for choice of the different scenic backgrounds available to us, the photo shoot looked amazing especially as the sun set over the vineyard, all on the Riverstone Estate grounds.  They made the photo shoot with themselves and their bridesmaids and groomsmen a joyful experience.

Wedding Reception Celebration

All the wedding guests were in good spirits and were very excited to see Mr and Mrs Smith enter the building.  The party is on! The food was delicious and the music was entertaining.  Mark Carniato Photography snapped up many beautiful images of the cutting of the cake, the bridal waltz, a few panoramas of the speeches and a whole lot of dancing to the groovy tunes performed by the band.   

Congratulations Leah and Grant! We wish you the best for your future together as husband and wife.
