Eileen + Ben

Brace yourselves for one gorgeous couple and possibly the most extraordinary wedding dress we’ve ever had the pleasure of shooting!

When Eileen told us she’d designed her own dress with the help of Jane Hill Bridal, we could have never guessed which direction her design had taken. As she was getting ready on the big day, Katie and I were both struck by her (perfect) casual ponytail and smouldering makeup. I remember saying something like “Wow, love the non-traditional bridal makeup” and Eileen said something like “You’ll get it when you see the dress”.

Well, the dress came out of its bag and I don’t think our mouths stayed shut for the rest of the day. We were absolutely gobsmacked!!! It was SO perfect, SO stunning, and SO Eileen.

When we think of this wedding we just think…golden! The sun was out in force, the day was unseasonably warm, and everything from the light to the dress was…well, you’ll see…

Love Katie & Sarah xo

PS – cute groomsmen alert.

PPS – Eileen’s dress was featured on our favourite blog Cup Of Jo HERE.

    Everytime I look at your website (plus you did my cousin’s gorgeous wedding at the Melbourne Museum)I think…..maybe we should get married. Just to get so22 yrs together and never got married. I love everything about this wedding. Even the flowers on the tables. Love it. Any chance of finding out where the location is?

    Sorry about that…..Delete that blabber of a post before please. I just can’t help but ramble when I see your wonderful website. I was just wondering where this wedding was located. I think I do actually want to married now….just to have you guys capture the whole day. Is it too late after 22yrs??ReplyCancel

    Hi Sally,
    I can answer this for you! It’s Stones of the Yarra Valley, (Victoria).
    I have attended a wedding here myself (not this one, which is ridiculously amazing!), but it’s a BEAUTIFUL location. It’s often featured in bridal magazines, it’s stunning.

    AND, It’s never too late to celebrate your love!!ReplyCancel

    Fabulous wedding! Any chance you could share where the bridesmaid dresses are from?ReplyCancel

  • Hi guys! Eileen designed her dress and it was made by Jane Hill. Eileen also designed the bridesmaid dresses, but not sure if Jane made these too. The venue is Stones of the Yarra Valley. Eileen is an amazingly talented designer and we have been inundated by requests for this info, so hopefully it helps steer you in the right direction! xReplyCancel
