Two contrasting styles, one relaxed and sophisticated wedding

By Bride and Groom 16 June 2016

Matt and Jacinta managed to combine their two contrasting styles into one relaxed, yet sophisticated wedding. Brown Brothers Winery at Milawa, with its lush lawns, century-old oak trees and mountain backdrop reflected Matt’s farming background and Jacinta’s love for classic elegance.

MOUNTAIN PROPOSAL: A mountain backdrop has been a common theme for Matt and Jacinta on the journey to become husband and wife. A hike to Mt Timbertop at Merrijig, a special family spot, concluded with a romantic marriage proposal and Matt presenting Jacinta with a carefully chosen engagement ring.

VINTAGE STYLE: Jacinta’s vintage-inspired dress captured her heart as soon as she tried it on. “Mum, my sister and I selected a few different styles. Not having a particular style in mind helped, and my mum was pretty happy it was her choice I fell in love with.”



CLASSIC COUNTRY: Matt and his groomsmen wore checkered shirts with their stylish suits, and a dedicated country food and drinks table was an interesting addition to the reception. 


SURPRISE: Waiting for his bride Matt was surprised when the wedding cars arrived without her. Jacinta appeared from another entrance, stunning in her beautiful blush gown. 

BRIDE’S ADVICE: “Enjoy every moment of your special day,” Jacinta said. “With the preparation done, it will all fall into place. There is no need to stress about the small things, no-one will know any different. “All that matters is why you are there and to soak up the feeling of being surrounded by your friends and family.”
