So you’ve found your person. The one who looks at you the way Harry looks at Meghan. You’ve got a ring on it and you’re set to pledge your forever promises.
Now, you want a wedding that’s not a replica of the 97 other weddings you’ve been to this year. You want to create a day that’s special beyond measure. One-of-a-kind, just like the two of you.
A day that says, ‘This is us’.
Love + Light Wedding Festival is for all the dreamers and daydream believers, a weekend wonderland to be staged in Rutherglen, North East Victoria, on February 16 and 17, 2019.
This innovative event offers inspiration and practical know-how for lovebirds from North East Victoria and the Riverina – or those from Melbourne, Canberra or Sydney looking to escape the city for their dream wedding.
The festival kicks off on the Saturday with a runway show displaying on-trend bridal looks. Sunday sees an interactive wedding trail offering a unique opportunity to experience five gorgeous fully styled, ‘wedding-ready’ venues: Corowa Whisky and Chocolate, St Leonards Vineyard, Springhurst Butter Factory, John Gehrig Wines and Tuileries.
Love + Light Wedding Festival is the brainchild of wedding photographer Georgie James, who launched the highly successful inaugural event in 2018.
“When I started as a wedding photographer in the Rutherglen region five years ago, I assumed there would be plenty of resources to help couples find cool spaces and suppliers to make planning their wedding enjoyable,” says Georgie. “I realised how difficult it was to find an industry event in this region that was inspiring.”
Georgie had also noticed that more and more couples are choosing to forgo traditional weddings in favour
of personalised celebrations, so she sought to make the process easier by connecting these individuals with wedding experts able to pull off epic bespoke ceremonies and receptions. “It was my mission to create a well-run event with heart and soul,” she says.
