Candice & Jonathan’s Stones of the Yarra Valley Wedding

Candice and Jonathan first met over 10 years ago when they shared a teenage holiday romance during a trip to Hamilton Island with their families. And after proposing during a trip to Hawaii, Jonathan married his beautiful Candice in spectacular style at the stunning Stones of the Yarra Valley in September last year.

 After the entire bridal party arrived in a fleet of red helicopters – with Jonathan piloting his own! – we all gathered in the beautiful chapel to receive the bride, absolutely breathtaking in a Connie Simonetti gown and beaming from ear to ear, as she walked towards her handsome groom.

After Candice & Jonathan promised to “love & cherish you always for all the days of my life”, their parents joined them in performing a Wine Box ceremony where secret, handwritten letters and three bottles of wine, were sealed in a box, to be opened on their 10th Wedding anniversary, and hammered shut by their builder groomsman James – a task he performed with much seriousness, eliciting delighted laughter & applause from the guests & newlyweds alike!
