ASHA + DAMIEN

THE GROOM WAS SET ON TY­ING THE KNOT BY THE BEACH – AND THERE WAS NOWHERE MORE BEAU­TI­FUL THAN THE MORN­ING­TON PENIN­SULA

Cosmopolitan Bride (Australia) - - JUST MARRIED -

DATE 18.03.17 VENUE SOR­RENTO SAIL­ING COUTA BOAT CLUB, SOR­RENTO, VIC PHO­TOG­RA­PHY SOR­RENTO PHO­TOG­RA­PHY

Asha and Damien said their vows in front of a tree on Laven­der Hill with views over­look­ing the wa­ter in stun­ning Sor­rento in Vic­to­ria. The trunk and branches were beau­ti­fully dec­o­rated with white and green flow­ers – just one of their favourite lit­tle touches from the emo­tional cer­e­mony.

On the day of their wed­ding, tem­per­a­tures hit 30 de­grees (so

Asha was grate­ful for the split in her wed­ding gown to cool things down!). The sweet­hearts wanted a re­laxed vibe on their big day, and even made sure ev­ery­one had a cham­pagne or beer at the cer­e­mony – nice!
