Emily and Paul’s Coombe Yarra Valley wedding finally happened after being postponed for a year due to Covid-19. It’s been a roller coaster ride for the couple as the restrictions were easing and tightening over the months prior and they knew their day was in the hands of every Victorian. You can imagine the relief when it finally arrived, the sun bursting through the clouds after days of miserable weather, and Paul’s sister catching a last minute flight from Brisbane after the borders had opened again that day.

It just couldn’t have gone right for a more deserving couple.

Paul started the day in tears, something we’d see a bit of, reading his letter from Emily and enjoying morning cocktail with Coombe’s Gin.

Emily was getting in ready in the other wing of the Homestead at Wandin Park Estate, displaying her killer multi-tasking skills by having her hair and makeup done whilst also guiding Paul’s sister through her Covid test to get it done and approved in half an hour so she could just make it to the ceremony.

My dear friend Elisa Westein held a beautifully, heartfelt ceremony in the Italian Gardens at Coombe. Just look at Paul’s face as he watched Emily walk down the aisle. It should tell you all you need to know about how deep the love here goes.

I was so pumped to get a stunning sunset and be able to combine it with these two gorgeous souls who were so easy, having so much fun together and not getting enough of their intimate time together.

The speeches were hilarious, and poor Paul not only got roasted by his best man, but by his own mum and then new brothers-in-law. Like a champion though, he dished it straight back.

We danced into the night, stepping out briefly for a shot under the stars and I left these guys ready for a beautiful life together as Mr & Mrs Marks.
