    Thankyou for your feedback!
    We’d have to agree — Stones is one of our favourite venues for its relaxed feel and rustic ambience, chock full of photo opportunities and the meals are very much better than average, true restaurant quality with attention to looks as well as taste! (What more can a wedding photographer want!)

    Getting married at Stones of the Yarra Valley on March 5, 2011 was a breathtaking experience. Every aspect of our perfect day was taken care of by the wonderful staff.

    The food, the atmosphere, the ambiance all added to making our wedding day as perfect as it could have been. I would recommend that anyone who is thinking of having a Yarra Valley wedding take time out of your venue searching and pop into stones for lunch on a Sunday afternoon, there is nothing like enjoying wonderful food, a lovely glass of local wine and taking a stroll around the picturesque grounds. I assure you, once you have seen the place, nothing else will compare.

    The chapel, dairy and restaurant allowed us to have a wedding that didn’t feel like guests were all stuck in the one place all day, they traveled from one part of the property to another for each part of our day and evening.

    The grounds and old buildings allowed for some amazing photographic opportunities as well. We didn’t need to travel to numerous locations for pictures to be taken and we still ended up with an amazing selection to choose from.
