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.”
