Are you planning your dream wedding in Melbourne and looking for the perfect venue? Look no further than Collingwood Children’s Farm, where Emma and Ash tied the knot in a picture-perfect ceremony. When I got the email about photographing a Collingwood Children’s Farm Wedding , I was a bit stumped about the ‘farm’ part. Located in the heart of Collingwood, the Children’s Farm offers a unique and charming setting for your big day. With its rustic barns, sprawling gardens, and friendly farm animals, this venue is perfect for couples who want a relaxed, outdoor wedding with plenty of character.
My Melbourne geography isn’t the best, but I thought Collingwood was in the city, not the place you’d find a farm. After some chats with the couple and some google researching I discovered that it was a farm, right in the middle of the city with animals and all. So this excited and intrigued me, and the place didn’t let me down.
The day started off super chill with the girls getting ready at their family home overlooking the ocean just south of Melbourne. The girls were full of laughs and bubbled and good times were flowing right from the start. While the boys, equally as chilled, were getting ready in the heart of Melbourne with a view overlooking the city skyline. Ash may not of been s relaxed as Emma but I could tell her just wanted to get there and marry his sweet heart.
Emma and Ash chose to exchange their vows outside one of the farms old shearing sheds. A rustic and beautiful setting that also helped shade the bridal party on a steamy Melbourne day. An extra personal touch to these two lovers getting hitched was that Emma’s sister, Lisa, was the one to marry them.
After the ceremony, the newlyweds and their guests enjoyed a rustic reception in the Farm’s spacious barn. The barn was decorated with twinkling fairy lights and native floral arrangements, creating a cozy and intimate atmosphere for the celebration.
The night kicked on with some epic tunes being belted out by the band and a lot of sweaty bodies tearing it up on the dance floor.
