The Riverstone Estate Wedding of Naoko and Phil

Tell me about the beginning!
We met at a dog park in South Yarra with our two dogs Bruno and Mochi. Bruno since passed away however we have another dog called Bruce. The pups are the centre of our world and Mochi and Bruce will feature in our wedding in tuxedos as groomsmen!

Phil’s housemate Arnie who is the wedding celebrant was instrumental in

We always love getting out and into nature, don’t like loud events or anything too busy these days. Nature has always been a key feature of our relationship and we enjoy all aspects from beach to bush, camping in our kombi or even gardening in the backyard etc


When and where did you get engaged?
Down the coast at a quiet beach where we spread Bruno’s ashes, an area surrounded by nature that we and the pups enjoy immensely. Nothing fancy, no sharp clothes or photographers just us with nature


What style/theme have you chosen for your Wedding Day?
Natural style – australian natives, greens, whites. Not desaturared but just natural


What are you most looking forward to on the day?
Just spending a few hours with both sides of the family who have never met and a rare occasion we will all be able to do so (one half being from Japan, the other Australia)
