After travelling together to 37 countries, Renee Flanagan and Blair Parkinson’s choice of wedding theme was simple.

“We decided to go with a vintage travel wedding theme and everything just followed,” Renee, 30, says.

She and Blair, 31, were also keen on a vineyard wedding and fell in love with De Bortoli Winery, Dixon Creek, Victoria.

“As soon as we drove up the long driveway we knew it was the place for us,” Renee, from Richmond, says.

The couple wed in glorious sunshine on March, 21, 2015, in front of 72 guests.

The De Bortoli restaurant handled the reception in fine style and a photobooth courtesy of In The Booth kept the party going.

“It was so fun,” Renee says. “Looking back on the photos was hilarious.”

After more than a year of planning to make their wedding perfect, Renee couldn’t be happier.

“The sun was shining, all of our closest family and friends were under one roof. It was amazing to see all our hard work and planning come together,” she says.
