Ben + Sophie


Ben and Sophie tied the knot at the magnificent Harcourt Valley Winery, just 25 mins from Bendigo’s city centre.

Their day was so perfect in their eyes, that they struggled to pick a favourite moment – they settled on the moment they locked eyes on each other at their ceremony- Sophie remembers “walking down the aisle and seeing my handsome husband-to-be standing there giving me a look of love!”

How did they meet?

Ben & Sophie met at Sophie’s sisters house back in 2017. The spark was instant and they’ve never looked back

The proposal story.

Ben chose Sophie’s favourite place in the world to pop the question – At a Gold Coast apartment that she holidayed at with her family from a very young age. Needless to say, that beachside apartment is all the more special now!

Tell us about your vendors!

Sarah-Jane VR – what an absolute dream SJ is. Capturing the most perfect day with memories of love and laughter. I cannot recommend her enough for her amazing work she does. We have photos I can’t stop looking at and finding it hard to pick which ones to hang up!

Celebrant Sue Begg – Our celebrant was the most loving and caring person and were so thankful she could marry us. Super easy to deal with and honestly puts together a great love story, she will honestly do anything to make your day so much easier and more relaxed.

Harcourt Valley Vineyard – Harcourt Valley Vineyard was absolutely amazing, I couldn’t recommend both Maree and Quinn. Maree made all of my dreams come true, she was very easy and accommodating. Honestly didn’t need much decorating as the venue just speaks for itself.

Bendigo Bridal Collections – I can’t speak highly enough of Bron and her team at Bendigo Bridal. Soo helpful, my dress is what I always dreamed of. I was actually 9 weeks pregnant in that dress and Bron reassured me it still looked perfect. The elegance and minor details were just stunning. Most comfortable dress I’ve ever worn and my stunning pearl veil to match my dress just completed it!
