Real Weddings – Anna + Phil
Despite the fact that Anna or Phil don’t live in the Hunter Valley, or were not even familiar with the area, they decided to marry in Pokolbin. Anna found local suppliers in Your Hunter Valley Wedding Planner, and guests came from far and wide for a Hunter Valley Wedding Weekend! Photography On Hermitage captured their special day.
Phil proposed to Anna when she was least expecting it – after a hard day’s work on the farm and under the proviso of checking the lambs! A good ploy, we say.
Anna & Phil’s ceremony and reception were held atRoberts Restaurant Hunter Valley NSW . Elope with Maree Callaghan Hunter Marriage Celebrant presided over their ceremony.
Anna’s gown was from Hills in Hollywood, while the bridesmaid’s dresses were from Forever New.
The prettiest bridal bouquets were designed by Floral Affects & Event Hire.
Anna’s clever friend made the rustically elegant wedding cake.
