Every wedding is special so we’re sharing some of our top 2020 Real Wedding stories to highlight just how creative some couples had to be during 2020 (adapting to ever changing restrictions and replanning their days) and reminding us how incredible the Yarra Valley and Dandenong Ranges are for getting hitched regardless of the size of your wedding, the season or the theme you choose to say I do.
Congratulations to all the couples who have been part of Off Peak Weddings and spreading the love!
1. When Lilly wed Bec
Bec and Lilly celebrated their love with a gorgeous at home wedding in Lilydale at the start of the year. Their relaxed vibe and genuine delight in each other made for a super special day that made the most of a ‘Secret Garden’ theme.
2. Kari and Nick choose a forest wonderland
This gorgeous pari chose Forest Weddings in Kinglake for a super intimate ceremony with only four guests (thanks Covid!). Actually you could say it was five guests as Kari was 12 weeks pregnant on her wedding day and their first bubba is due in February 2021. Good luck!
3. Virginia and Ivan take to the skies
A last minute decision, and after several replans, Ivan and Virginia had their very exclusive marriage ceremony way above the Yarra Valley in a hot air balloon with Global Ballooning. They chose an auspicious date, according to Chinese custom, livestreamed their day to family and friends who couldn’t be there, and the rest is beautiful history!
4. Winning day with Jess and Clio
Imagine winning a wedding with every element of your day taken care of. Jess and Clio were the winners of Projekt Equality, submitting a sweet video voiced by their daughter about the importance of equality. Their wedding day was a joyful celebration of big love at Projekt 3488 in Warburton.
5. Kiara and Tristian share the music
When music festival meets vineyard wedding, you will find Kiara and Tristian on their big day at Bulong Estate in Yarra Junction. Their music festival theme was a celebration of their love for tunes and a perfect example of when best friends marry.
