Valley Loves was born from a vision of two Yarra Valley based, wedding-obsessed girls, wanting to offer couples a beautiful setting to plan their wedding day, and just as importantly offer a beautiful space for the very best suppliers in the area to be showcased.
Reaching beyond the traditional wedding "expo" concept, we believe planning a wedding shouldn't be about leaving an expo feeling more confused and overwhelmed than when you arrived. Valley Loves Wedding Fair offers you an opportunity to immerse yourself in a beautifully styled environment, inspiring you to seek out ideas for your day and really experience our amazing Yarra Valley while you are there. Simply, Valley Loves believes wedding planning should be fun and fabulous.
Valley Loves is the vision and creation of boss ladies Naomi - graphic designer, curator, lover of all things stationery, wine drinker, creative dreamer and Mum...& Sharne - photographer, entrepreneur, Mum, espresso martini drinker, light lover and passionate multi-tasker. Both with successful wedding service businesses and leaders in the competitive Melbourne wedding market, Naomi and Sharne have paved the way in the area for the death of the traditional expo and the birth of the wedding fair and planning experience. Bringing bespoke couples to bespoke vendors. Valley Loves has since grown to be part wedding fair, part music festival, part food truck park and a whole lotta community. The exciting evolution most recently for VL has also become an education resource for the development of wedding industry vendors.
Sharne and Naomi live and breathe the Yarra Valley along with their young families, and are excited to share their heart in local business, and ignite the fire for the Yarra Valley and our amazing local talent in the bellies of our visitors and couples planning their day.
Valley Loves is an opportunity for couples to enjoy a day in the Yarra Valley, with Yarra Valley wine, cheese, and food. It's a Yarra Valley-specific experience while couples happen to be able to plan their wedding. This has never been done this way before in our area. Just as importantly we want to support our fellow YV vendors to be showcased to couples in a beautiful, fresh and chic way. We know how much fun planning a wedding can be, and we also believe planning and shopping for ideas for your wedding has evolved, as brides and grooms search for new ways to discover something to help make their day beautifully unique to them and, connect with their vendors on a personal level too.
