While dramatic dark clouds loomed over Seville for Leesie & Trent’s Payne’s Rise Wedding, they made for nothing more than a stunning backdrop. 

Civil Celebrant Kate Nichols conducted a beautiful ceremony under the huge oak tree in front of the apple orchard.

While the guests made their way to the reception that overlooked the Yarra Valley, Leesie and Trent took a romantic stroll through the vineyard and allowed me to capture their private celebration of becoming husband and wife through the vines and from the sky.

The rocking tunes from the tireless Tristan J Ross had the wedding party on their feet the whole night, including venue owner Narelle who did a mean dance to the mandatory end-of-the-night classic, Daryl Braithwaite’s Horses.

Having a Paynes Rise wedding means you’re going to get that awesome personal touch from the most down to earth owners who will look after you on your wedding day and have worked incredibly hard on making their property one of the best venues in the region that combines rustic charm, vineyards, orchards, great views, superb wine and staff that wholeheartedly care about you and your wedding day.
