Trofeo Estate | Dromana Wedding | Mornington Peninsula

Leah + Dan had a super fun wedding at Trofeo Estate, a boutique winery on the gorgeous mornington peninsula at Dromana on November 27th 2015 🙂

Swipe to the Right

Leah + Dan’s Love Story

With a mutual “swipe to the right” Daniel and Leah’s lives were forever transformed. A true modern day romance, these two found one another on ‘Tinder’ – a hook up app. Leah wasn’t so convinced with Daniel sporting a black eye upon their first meeting, evidence of too much Australia Day fun. But as she came to realise he was a gentle patient man, with family being his priority, Leah quickly found them moving from the friend zone to true love.

Daniel fell deeply in love with Leah’s infectious smile, how she poured her love on those close to her, and her luscious curves. He had chosen to swipe “right” because, well… he thought she was hot! His eyes mesmerised her, while his ability to make her laugh, calm her anxiety and his gifts of milky ways and red wine opened her heart. After a long hot day at work cracking open a cold beer for him quickly became an act of love. For these two, it is the simplicity, the living of reality and the genuine laughter that matter. One beautiful night whilst walking their puppy Stella at Altona beach he asked her to be his partner in crime for life, she responded excitedly in the awkward, true Leah-style shout out of “no, no, no, no, I need to call my mum!”

An overcast November sky did not dampen spirits on their wedding day, they brought light and laughter with them every step of the way. With good friends Guy and Davida by their sides, standing before each other, under the leafy trees at Trofeo Estate in Dromana, they vowed to take care of one another, find happiness together and stand up for one another and the future family they both crave. One of their most colourful friends Josh read the most eloquent summation of what it is to be in love, they giggled and shared looks that spoke volumes in their own unique language.

“Love is a temporary madness, it erupts like volcanoes and then subsides. And when it subsides you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of eternal passion. That is just being “in love” which any fool can do. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident. Those that truly love, have roots that grow towards each other underground, and when all the pretty blossom have fallen from their branches, they find that they are one tree and not two.” – Louis de Bernières

Gearing up for the party of their lives their enthusiasm was infectious to all those around them. Much merry making and shenanigans were to ensue as young and old let their hair down, Batman even came along for the ride! The drinks flowed as smiles lit up the room. Many impressions of wardrobe malfunctions and meerkats were captured, shoes were kicked off and the band provided the contagious soundtrack for dancing into the night.

For these two best friends, lovers, and party animals, mutual respect for each other and devotion to loved ones is a common thread that runs between their two hearts. They revel in waking up to one another’s smiles and the happiness of one another. Always looking up, they will continue to chase pure childlike joy wherever they adventure together!
