Emily Dean and Lee Oliver of Stawell were married on March 7, 2015.

After a romantic, rustic ceremony at Emily’s family farm – officiated by the bride’s Aunt and complete with vintage cars – the bride and groom celebrated with family and friends at Trackside Tabaret, before enjoying a well-deserved honeymoon in Thailand.

“The Grampians Wedding Directory site is a ‘one – stop – shop’ for sourcing all things wedding! Personally, I found it made what can be a stressful time, quite fun; sourcing my photographer, reception function room and event stylist Kim from Allure Wedding and Event Hire for seating and decorations. Well worth a look!” – Emily Oliver

When we think of Alisha Ellis’s floral styling, the words dreamy, romantic, contemporary and artistic immediately come to mind.

Her flowers aren’t just a pretty adornment for a bride and her attendants, they are pieces of art that complement the entire theme of the day; either in a dramatic or subtle way.

Alisha’s work is seamless because she takes the time to get to know her bride and groom and grasp the wedding concept they are aiming to achieve. Not only does this mean creating bouquets and buttonholes, but wedding ceremony, reception and cake flowers too, as well as stunning hair pieces.

Grampians photographer and GWD member, Kerri Kingston captured these beautiful photos of bride, Claire at Seppelt Winery recently.

The white gown, against a crisp, white background of one of Seppelt’s newest bridal rooms, provided the inspiration for a dramatic photo.

The bride takes some final moments to reflect on her special day, whilst the photographer perfectly documents the glamour, poise and total beauty of the moment.
