Gum Gully Farm Wedding | Yana + Ben


Gum Gully wedding photography by michelle pragt

I get to meet and work with some pretty awesome people in my line of work.

And I knew right from our first meeting that Yana and Ben were a couple I wanted to work with.

Totally in love with each other and really easy going.

Their venue of choice was one of my favourites too. Gum Gully Farm has the cutest little chapel and countryside to die for. It’s a relaxed venue in the Dandenong Ranges, and weddings there are always something special. I love that at this venue, we can drive up to the hilltop for those incredible views at sunset, allowing some quality time just for the couple alone to really appreciate their day all the more.

You know when you can feel the love, and the ceremony led by gorgeous celebrant Kate Haley, was truly heartfelt and had quite a few of us brushing a tear away.

But so good to see everyone sharing fully in this moment with them right??!!

Yana is such a creative lady, she made a lot of the wedding details herself, including the flowers. And I can’t not mention that she made the most beautifully radiant bride, with a smile that lit up the room.

Congratulations Yana and Ben xx

My love of photography grew from wanting to capture as much of my travels and children's childhood as possible, and it is something that I have been loving for most of my life.
