Real Wedding | Blair + David

Blair is an English Fashion Designer and moved to Melbourne 9 years ago. David a Studio Manager and Photographer moved to Melbourne 12 years ago from NSW. The couple got married in a stunning location in Victoria in January during the bushfire crisis that affected Australia. Their wedding was a great reminder of appreciating our beautiful landscape and how important it is to celebrate love during hard times. The couple had 100 guests who travelled from all over Australia, as well as Birmingham, London, New York, Basel & Berlin. Their photographer Arianna Leggiero loved being part of and capturing Blair and David's beautiful day.

Tell us a little about yourselves!

Blair: We met 5 years ago after I ‘liked’ a strangers photo on Instagram of the same lightening bolt tattoo on the palm of a hand that I had, and David sent me a message. We met for a Sunday afternoon drink and after just 1 week together we both knew this was ‘it’. We live in Collingwood, Melbourne and live a happy, creative life together. David proposed with a hand-made Peta Armstrong tea cup because I drink so much Tea (English of course!) and we then commissioned my engagement ring - a stunning diamond pinkie ring by Seb Brown.

Why did you decide to get married where you did?

David : Knowing that Blair’s family were coming over from the UK for the wedding, it was really important to me that we have our wedding somewhere truly Australian. We both wanted a venue with a clean and minimal aesthetic that we could style ourselves. We looked at just two venues and when we visited The Burrow in Daylesford, it was exactly what we wanted - a luxury bush setting with a stunning barn to hold a reception.
