If you're looking for garden-style wedding inspiration, look no further than Stefanie and Arthur's luxe, winter celebration at Werribee Mansion. Although rain was forecast for the day, the weather held off just long enough for the couple to get some gorgeous wedding shots in the garden before heading off to celebrate their vows to each other with a intimate dinner.

The wedding was originally planned for December 2017, but when the happy couple found out they were welcoming a baby into the world, they brought the festivities forward to August for a magical winter wedding. The Bride and Groom used their wedding cake to reveal to their nearest and dearest that they were expecting a little girl; a very special touch to their fairy-tale day!

Dress and Veil: Grace Loves Lace. "I loved the cheeky slit and it hugged my body nicely whilst showcasing my small bump."

Bridesmaid Dresses: Myer, Review, Nicholas and Forever New. "Black dresses suited the dark theme of the wedding and as it was winter, we didn't want a colour that was too vibrant."

Jewellery: Earrings by Samantha Willis and wedding bands by Kush Diamonds. " I wore my grandmother's gold ring which was something 'old' and my something 'borrowed' was my bridesmaid's Tiffany & Co ring."

Grooms suit: Calibre

Hair and Makeup: Hair by Vivienne Clarke and Makeup by Sara Morrison

"The room has a bridge that leads into a dark foyer. It is dark and intimate as well as light and inviting."

Cake: Miss Ladybird Cake. "When Arthur and I cut the cake, it revealed pink inside, indicating that we were expecting a little girl! It was a very emotional and beautiful moment to experience on our wedding day."

Flowers: Ivy and Eve. "There were mixtures of pinks and black roses that worked so perfectly together to create a dark ambient mood, mixed with brightness of pinks and peaches."
