Nicole and Leigh

Nicole and Leigh say ‘I do’ on the 4th January 2020 at the stunning ‘Jack Rabbit Vineyard‘ on the dynamic Bellarine Peninsula, a dreamy place where our couple had an intimate wedding day which had sweeping views of the bay and picturesque vineyards.

Leigh planned a memorable ‘destination proposal’ for Nicole, one which she would never forget. The proposal took place in Bali at a five star resort, and Leigh was so thoughtful and decorated it with flower petals and candles. During a five course meal and  just before dessert came out, Leigh said to Nicole “I wouldn’t want to do this with anyone else, that’s why I’m going to ask you, would you be my wife!” 

At the wedding rehearsal, which took place a day before the wedding day, Leigh and Nicole rehearsed at their beautiful venue Jack Rabbit Vineyards, but the beautiful scenery & views had been obstructed as the bushfires nearby had completely covered the area in smoke and haze. Magically, on the day of their wedding the weather had cleared, and they had the most spectacular weather for their wedding day. Nicole said she felt, “quite calm and relaxed” before their ceremony which took place overlooking amazing views of the bay.  They had such a magnificent wedding day and felt so blessed to be able to share it with their nearest and dearest.

Belle et Blanc ‘Nicole’ came into our bridal store and picked out the absolutely stunning ‘Anika’ wedding dress. Nicole tells us, “I felt beautiful in my gown and I wouldn’t have changed a thing.” 

We are so thankful to Nicole & Leigh, and  feel so honoured Nicole picked Belle et Blanc to be part of their day, and we absolutely love the photographs!
