BOA STYLE - VINEYARD NUPTIALS

7 June 2016

Here is South Australia we have been lucky enough to be blessed with some of the most picturesque and simply stunning wine regions in Australia, so why not take advantage of that on your special day! Draw inspiration from the lush grapevines of the vineyards, the historical textures of the barns and the surrounding landscape of the countryside. Its all about the fine wine and good food – we can’t think of a reason not to get married on a vineyard!

Incorporate wine bottle corks, whether in your design or as a favour keychain, wooden wine barrels and the natural and organic elements of fresh florals and herbs into your flower décor. Balance the rustic elements with elegant touches of candelabras and candles for a romantic candlelit dinner, crystal chandeliers suspended above all complimented perfectly with intricate fresh floral designs.

Nothing goes better with a good drop of wine quite like cheese, so a cheese wheel wedding cake is the perfect addition to your vineyard wedding. Cut the cake at the beginning of the reception and have the cheese served to every table as a cheese platter garnished with some nuts and dried fruit. Your guests will love you for it!

REAL WEDDING - VANESSA + NICK

16 April 2016

THE COUPLE: Vanessa + Nick

GUESTS: 120

PALETTE: White and silver for a fresh, sophisticated and elegant setting.

vanessa and nick real wedding - brides of adelaidevanessa and nick real wedding - brides of adelaide

THE DRESS: I was lucky enough to wear two gorgeous gowns for my wedding, which were equally elegant and timeless. The ceremony gown was a very classic, off the shoulder style made from an ivory Mikado silk with a long train and button detail. The reception dress was a strapless, sequined design with a layered 'mermaid' silhouette at the bottom.

THE CEREMONY: We both instantly fell in love with our venue, booking it within a week of our engagement! The location's outside area was perfect for the ceremony given we wanted to be outdoors, and the reception space was the ideal blank canvas for decorative touches that would make it our own. We married beneath a gorgeous lined marquee with an extra large gold crystal chandelier suspended above us. The aisle had two heavy set runs of white freeze dried rose petals to line the length of the chair rows and create an illusion of a lawn carpet.Studio Botanic also arranged two large vases of white chrysanthemums, white tulips, and white roses on white plinths, carpeted with blooms.

THE DÉCOR: For the bridal table we chose an exquisite row of rectangular vases with white pillar candles and rock salts sitting back-to-back down the entire length of the table, with space left in between to hold the bouquets. An amazing and full carpet of chrysanthemums in two large varieties, double tulips and white roses held in mirrored, rectangular vases sat down the entire length of the guest tables. Between each vase was a smaller glass vase with a bed of white rock salts and white pillar candles. We also had overhead floral arrangements, including clusters of rounded 'chandelier shaped structures' made entirely of flowers and greenery and held up by an ivy trail. The chains holding up the surrounding chandeliers were also wrapped in ivy.

THE FLOWERS: I carried a simple and elegant bouquet of white roses bound with fabric from my gown and finished with a row of pearl pins to match the back of my dress.

PHOTOGRAPHER: After meeting with James and seeing what a fun, relaxed and happy person he is, we didn't look any further. We really wanted a photographer that took natural looking photos, and also had an eye for stunning backgrounds and settings.

REAL WEDDING - PAIGE + CAMERON

6 January 2016

THE COUPLE: Paige + Jake

GUESTS: 98     

PALETTE: Our colour palette was extremely bold, consisting of mainly orange, pink and yellow. Cameron and I are both very creative and wanted a distinctive element to our wedding. We are also quite outdoorsy, so we introduced earthy tones into the pops of colour.

paige + cameron real wedding - brides of adelaide

THE DRESS: My gown was designed and built fro scratch. I was looking for something that suited my personality and was distinct from the traditional bridal gowns. I wanted a backless sequined, 'figure hugging' style with am air of sophistication. My train was hand sewn ruffled lace fabric.

paige + cameron real wedding - brides of adelaidepaige + cameron real wedding - brides of adelaidepaige + cameron real wedding - brides of adelaide

THE CEREMONY: Over two years ago we ventured to the Adelaide Hills for a day trip to the wineries. As soon as we drove into the venue, we knew it was where we wanted to get married. That overwhelming feeling of 'this is it'. Our ceremony décor was quite refined, as we wanted our family and friends to admire the natural beauty of the location. We chose white Americana chairs for guest seating and a wine barrel for our celebrant to utilise. Cameron and I also had an entertaining 'open photo booth' for guests to enjoy once the ceremony was over. It was a mini Jeep Wrangler with a personalised stamp of our names, wedding date and 'Just Married' printed on the side.

THE DÉCOR: All our decor was supplied by Olive You Occasions, including personalised items such as milk bottles, 'C & P' letters on our table, wine barrel toppers with our wedding logo, two little orange tea light hippos, humorous books about love and friendship and an eclectic hand painted wooden family. There were also orange espresso cups which were used as tea light holders, wooden photo frames, yellow and orange vases and jugs, a 'mini Jeep Wrangler open photo booth', giant pink balloons with ribbon, white ornament birds and a white 'LOVE' sign. All of our signs and stationery such as menu, program, 'thankyou' and instagram signs and unique table seating chart were designed and printed by Olive You Occasions.

PHOTOGRAPHER: Cameron and I chose Jade Norwood as our photographer. We were looking for a fun, personal and natural photography resulting in images that reflected our relationship and personalities. Cameron and I had our engagement shoot with Jade, which was very relaxed, and the photos turned out incredible.

REAL WEDDING - LANIE + JAMES

11 November 2015

COUPLE: Lanie + James

GUESTS: 90

PALETTE: Cream, ivory and apricot.

THE DRESS: I wanted to look back at photos of my wedding dress in twenty years and still think it was the loveliest dress I had ever seen. I opted for something simple and elegant with bohemian elements to it. The dress was Thai double ply silk with a full skirt and vintage French Chantilly lace covering the bust, with spaghetti straps joining at the back for a very simple look.

THE CEREMONY: Our ceremony decor consisted of a few rows of Chiavari chairs with rose petals down the aisle and little bunches of gypsophila hanging from the aisle chairs. The aisle led down to an archway we had made especially for the occasion, consisting of two beautiful old doors connected at the top with reclaimed wood, decorated again with bunches of gypsophila. The rose petals were from my mother’s own garden! As my father walked me down the aisle, James’ father also played the guitar. Both my mother and James’ mother read aloud readings we had chosen. We made sure our family were very involved in the ceremony!

THE RECEPTION: Longview Vineyard was the first reception venue we looked at and we fell in love with it straight away! It was beautiful, rustic and felt very warm and inviting to us. The view from the venue was absolutely breathtaking and being that little way out from the city gave us a feeling of intimacy and seclusion from the rest of the world for the day. The staff at Longview were the most helpful people we had ever encountered which also assisted with the decision.


THE DÉCOR: James and I chose a very simple centrepiece consisting of a glass vase filled with bunches of gypsophila. I made our table numbers myself from reclaimed wood. The venue provided and set up fairy lights around the wooden posts in the room and I created ‘chandeliers’ by wiring jars with candles in them and hanging them from a ring over each table. Our florist was lovely enough to decorate these chandeliers with more gypsophila and hung them from the ceiling for me. The whole venue covered with candles and fairy lights was magical!

THE FLOWERS: My bouquet consisted of white roses, carnations and lisianthus and the rest of the wedding was decorated in bunches of gypsophila.

PHOTOGRAPHER: James and I had Kelsey Marshall from Elevation Photography and we could not have been happier with her! With so many wedding photographers to choose from in Adelaide we were a little overwhelmed with the decision but in the end we chose Kelsey because not only did she have an array of different photos in her portfolio but she was a genuinely warm person to deal with and made us feel as though she was just as excited as we were for our wedding! We wanted our photos to be candid and really capture the day itself.

WEDDING STYLE - PROVINCIAL CHIC

5 November 2015

There is something classically romantic about an outdoor wedding that we can't get enough of. Take a sun-drenched afternoon; place a floral filled arbour here, complimented perfectly with an intimately styled table there, et voila! – the picture-perfect celebration under the sun reminiscent of the south of France. Wonderfully rustic whites, woods + neutrals of French provincial marry perfectly with textured linens, unstructured draping’s + rustic upholstered furniture.

REAL WEDDING - LAUREN + JASON

4 November 2015

THE COUPLE: Lauren + Jason

GUESTS: 150

PALETTE: We chose a rustic vibe with neutral and pastel colours, which tied in with the venue.



THE DRESS: I wanted a timeless gown that would complement my curvy figure. I loved the work of many recognised Israeli designers, and gained a lot of inspiration from them. Their designs are very glamorous and feminine. My gown was a backless, white satin with a lace bodice and delicate beading. I also incorporated detachable sleeves, as I could not decide whether I wanted them or not. I wore the sleeves for the ceremony and removed them for the reception.

THE CEREMONY: Our ceremony was set up on the lawn with white Americana chairs and two large white umbrellas to shade from the sun. Wine barrels held two large flower arrangements and were placed at the beginning of the aisle. There was another large table arrangement set up near the celebrant. I created little cones, filled them with petals and sat them in a rustic crate for guests to toss. There was also lawn games set up for guests to play before and after the ceremony.

THE RECEPTION: We decided on a cocktail celebration, as we didn’t want the day to feel too formal. We enjoyed spending time mingling with our family and friends.

THE DÉCOR: As our reception was cocktail style, we used wine barrels as tables and scattered bar stools around them. Each of the barrels had tea light candles in mason jars with flowers alongside. The vintage furniture was set up in clusters around the barrel hall. We had fairy lights cascading from the roof and a number of up-lights that lit up the barrels and surrounding walls. There was a beautiful flower feature in an old rustic wheelbarrow, which looked amazing. We also used hay bails for additional seating.

THE FLOWERS: I had a gorgeous trailing bouquet with a generous selection of seasonal flowers, leaves and tendrils in a softly cascading shape. It was an unstructured design, and asymmetrical for a relaxed feminine feel. The bridesmaids’ bouquets were made from gypsophila.


PHOTOGRAPHER: Jason and I were looking for lovely natural photography, which perfectly portrayed the day with all its love and emotions. We loved all of the photos Andrea captured.

REAL WEDDING - JEN + MATT

12 August 2015

THE COUPLE: Jen + Matt

PALETTE: Shades of indigo and blues mixed with neutral and metallic finishes made for a whimsy delight with finishing touches of raspberry and violet.

STYLE: Grecian and a 'Midsummer Night's Dream'. A beautiful mix of styles that reflected who they both are as people. A relaxed vibe and easy structure with an outdoor component in a garden or winery for the ceremony.

THE DRESS: I was looking for a gown that when worn I would be able to catch and cuddle my son, something I could dance on a table in and a gown to ensure I still felt like myself, but a more ‘fabulous’ self. It featured three parts, inclusive of a silk dress underneath a beautiful lace kimono for the ceremony. When I met with the inspiring Alli Lynch at Betrothed she constructed a sheer kimono from a divine piece of French lace and attached it to the silk underlay. I wore a bespoke vintage gown for the reception, pieced together meticulously from vintage fabrics.

THE CEREMONY: The grounds are incredible; stepping into this property is like being transported to Tuscany. The walled garden was our ceremony location and we chose it simply because it was gorgeous and we felt it to be the right place for us. We hired the onsite accommodation for the weekend, so the groomsmen, bridesmaids and ourselves could get ready there and quite literally walk out of our door and arrive at the ceremony.

THE RECEPTION: Many of our guests traveled a long way to be with us that weekend so we wanted the day to be as easy as possible for them and felt we would achieve this by cutting out travel to and from the ceremony and reception. The venue’s ‘Orangerie’ is ideal for intimate gatherings and sits right next to the walled garden where we were married. Our guests could arrive and relax while our photographer worked his magic, which kept the flow of the day very organic.

DECOR: We hired a Persian rug and borrowed several others to create a layered area below the gorgeous arch at our ceremony. We also scattered crates and floor cushions covered in indigo fabrics to create a ‘chill out zone’ for guests before and after the ceremony. An assortment of little bottles served as vases and I purchased a collection of hand-dyed silk ribbons, to which I attached decorative tassels, for our hand-binding ceremony. We hired fairy lights, a lovely mixture of copper vessels, ‘L-O-V-E’ marquee lights and peacock wicker chairs for Matt and myself. The bridal table runner was a beautiful piece of vintage Indonesian indigo-dyed fabric.

FLOWERS: I chose a gorgeous bohemian inspired raspberry rose bouquet wrapped in twine. The same flowers were also included in the bridesmaid’s flower crowns, the little flower girl’s crown and the groom and groomsmen’s buttonholes. Matt and I put all the other arrangements together. I walked around the scrub at my mother and father’s home and collected olive branches and other greenery to use. We utilised the venue’s vegetable patch for the feature arrangements on the bar, including incredible artichoke flowers that worked their way seamlessly into the day. A few bunches of feature flowers such as peonies and gypsophila were incorporated into cake, aisle and table decorations and bridesmaid bouquets.

PHOTOGRAPHY: Mark at Bentinmarcs Photography was exactly what we were looking for. He worked so hard on the day and took both film and digital shots. Mark is such a heartfelt and observant guy that he was able to capture the special little moments and offered the candid style of photography I love the most. His work gave us a collection of memories that tell the true story of the day and really show the emotion we all felt. I am so grateful to him for that.

23 January 2015

Such a stunning wedding scheme; it’s foliage and golden tones galore. Centerpieces of kept organic, full and low whilst the canvas is clean with hints of gold. It’s Grecian meets Australian outback as we somewhat take a walk down memory lane and revisit Pantone’s Color Of The Year for 2013, emerald. Foliage and fauna lends a rich green hue to the palette and metallic gold is a hint of antique/rustic. With opulent flair this palette achieves a lovely, luxurious look.

COLOURS - MAUVE AND OLIVE'S RUSTIC REALM

2 December 2014

Olive and mauve compliment each other in this palette, lending itself to a rustic affair. Feminine and vintage at the same time, this scheme looks best with fauna and organic textures. Homemade jars of pitted olives and beautiful mauve, blackberry infused macaroons for wedding favours... A white canvas offers a clean base for olive and mauve to play off each other, resembling a weekend away in a cottage with your beau; it's romantic, and homely, like mums best apple pie.

This palette is one for ages... mauve and olive - a timeless and stylish combination. We adore the romanticism and effortlessly chic nature of this colour pairing.

WEDDING CHAIR FLORAL DECOR

11 November 2014

Inject flora and fauna into your wedding day through chair decoration. Such a stylish alternative to traditional chair dressings like sashes and tulle.

Hang floristy in jars or entwine through chair backings. Use flowers similar to that of those in your bouquet and other decor for a uniform effect.  Decorate end chairs during the ceremony to frame the aisle or dress bridal party chairs for the reception. Alternatively you can adorn all chairs with a simple floral arrangement, to avoid an overwhelming affect.



Fauna and flowers are a common element in both the classic and modern wedding. Instead of floral arrangements for centerpieces, chair decor is a fantastic alternative. This leaves opportunity for fun and creative tablescape and centerpieces.

LOCATION BRIDE - VINEYARD

16 October 2014

Red, white, rose, sparkling ... what's your flavour? We are blessed with some of the best wine country Australia has to offer; the views, the fresh air and the clear night skies.

Utilise this beauty on your wedding day, celebrating with friends amongst rolling hills, ripe vines and plush estates. We think vineyards are the perfect canvas for your wedding day, no matter what your style.



Opt for either a rustic, country vibe or allude to a more classic and chic occasion with lots of white and cream touches.




The photography opportunities are endless in a location such as wine country. We think this bridesmaid shot is so unique and special...




End the night celebrating with open fires, candles, starry skies and of course, plenty of wine.

BRAIDS, BOUQUETS AND BOHO BRIDES

14 October 2014

If your the kind of bride who wears braids, bat-wings, henna, flowers in her hair, bare feet or just love a relaxed vibe, then a bohemian wedding might be your style. Like the "just woke up, bed-hair-bun" that every girl has spent hours in front of the mirror trying to achieve, the effortless look sometimes takes a little more work than one would image so take some inspiration from these gorgeous weddings and get your boho on...



We think these beautiful chalkboard invites are so alternative and fun. The flowers against the washed out black is so boho!



The most important rule to bohemian success is there are no rules. Try to not put too much thought into the details... perhaps chose a neutral or broad colour scheme and select decor and attire that isn't symmetrical or perfectly polished. We think these bridesmaids look amazing in non-matching dresses, carrying random bouquets that aren't identical.

REAL WEDDING - CARLA AND WARWICK

13 August 2013

Carla and Warwick’s country vintage charm wedding theme was inspired by visiting many old and beautiful towns throughout Europe and England, complemented beautifully by the picturesque Longview Vineyards. Carla describes, “Longview has a charming beauty and lovely rustic palette, which was exactly what we were looking for.” The pair, who met in Sydney, say that they thoroughly enjoyed the entire day and that there were so many memorable moments that they will always cherish.

Carla and Warwick hired Americana chairs and apothecary beverage servers from Sash Events to decorate the ceremony and purchased traditional ‘quattro stagioni’ preserving jars, which they hung from the aisle chairs with string and filled with white hydrangeas. Carla’s mother’s rustic chairs were placed at the signing table and fit in wonderfully with the country theme.

Carla wore a stunning off-white mermaid style gown with a cathedral train. The creation had a strapless sweetheart neckline with a soft tulle criss-cross overlay. The rest of the dress was lace, and perfectly fitted to the knee before flaring out to the floor. Her wedding earrings were a lovely gift from Warwick, which he made by their jeweller to match Carla’s rings. The bride’s bouquet brooch was ‘something borrowed’ from her nanna, her mother-in-law gave her a beautiful lace handkerchief, which is a family heirloom that has been passed down to all the women in the family since the 1920s and she found her hairpiece at Vintage Market on Grote Street.

The newlyweds held their reception at Longview because it had the right blend of style, size and a great reputation for its food and wine. The table centrepieces were low-height flowers placed in a collection of lovely vintage vases. Their table names identified their favourite travel destinations, which the couple handmade and stamped with fun travel stamps.

Guest were treated to a beautiful and personal two-tier wedding cake with fresh flowers between each layer. The bottom was Carla’s grandmother’s fruitcake recipe and the top was a gluten-free chocolate mud cake with raspberry. The bomboniere was a practical gift; Carla’s grandmother and mother made delicious apricot jam that was put in cute little jars.

REAL WEDDING - ANA AND JOSHUA

9 April 2013

brides of adelaide magazine - barossa wedding

A simple mistake ended up defining the future for Ana and Joshua, who met when they both misread their university timetables and ended up in the wrong class. The pair laughed off their embarrassment before getting a coffee at the café to get to know each other. Years later, Josh asked the big question during a fairy-tale proposal in New York that would exceed any little girl’s dream.

brides of adelaide magazine - barossa wedding brides of adelaide magazine - barossa wedding brides of adelaide magazine - barossa wedding

A whimsical wedding captured the essence of the Adelaide Hills for Ana and Joshua, who wanted their guests to feel like they were being transported somewhere special. When the couple saw the Longview Winery for the first time they had already put down a deposit on another wedding venue, but they completely fell in love and just had to change. Its rustic qualities, inspiring scenery and beautifully intimate feel made the Longview Winery the perfect place to host Ana and Joshua’s big day.

Together, Ana and Joshua built a tree made from real branches and foliage in the middle of their reception. In order to make guests feel as though they were somewhere truly serene and special they decorated the tree with fairy lights, birdcages and vintage lampshades and dotted gorgeous little animal statues around the reception for an enchanted forest feel. Special centrepieces consisting of twisted mallee wood, little nests with birds, vases, freesias, bark and tea-lights provided a whimsical ambiance to the styling.

Ana looked naturally radiant in a fishtail gown from Rapsimo. Beautiful imported Italian lace decorated the bodice and sweetheart neckline and Rapsimo ensured they completed the styling with a stunning pair of sling back heels. The vibrant pink bridesmaid dresses were from Bridal on Pulteney and Joshua and his groomsmen looked very handsome in Joseph Uzumcu suits. Bouquets of mostly native flowers highlighted beauty of the Adelaide Hills, including molucca balm pods, lilies, orchids, dodda vine, parrot tulips, mini gym and freesias.

Guests were treated to a raspberry cream sponge cake decorated with little birds and vine ornaments and Ana and Joshua organised for a tree to be planted on behalf of every guest through Trees of Life as bomboniere.

DEB AND MICHAEL - REAL WEDDING

1 March 2013

After a night out ‘stuffing themselves silly’ at a Thai restaurant, Michael proposed to Deb with a ring he made himself. Inside the stainless steel thumb ring was engraved ‘I love you eMBee, will you marry me?’ An amazing wedding followed, filled with a lot of nerves, a few tears, all smiles and a high five at the end!

REAL WEDDING - BRIDES OF ADELAIDE

When choosing her gown, Deb’s main priority was comfort – she wanted something different and easy to wear so she didn’t have to hold her stomach in and could easily sit down! The final product was a beautiful and breezy cotton and silk blend with shibori (Japanese twisted flowers) and tulle straps. She looked very much the radiant bride with a natural glow and a dazzling wide smile.

The wedding reception, held under magical strings of fairy lights on a tennis court, was relaxed and fun for all the couple’s friends and family. Deb collected vases from op shops and kept beer bottles, which were decorated with twine and filled with flowers by friends. Her mum made all the table runners from different materials, altogether creating a warm mismatched décor. The tennis court was set up with a ‘chill out’ area with rugs, sun chairs, ottomans, coffee tables and umbrellas. A dance floor was placed next to the trestle table dining area and bar, accompanied by ‘the most amazing’ little band. Guests enjoyed hor’deourves with drinks after the ceremony and later a shared platter dinner before a petit fours dessert of brownies, macaroons and lemon tarts.

Deb and Michael loved the style of photography Pete, from What Pete Shot, produced. “He is a lovely, easy-going guy who made us feel really comfortable for the photos’. The end result were gorgeous photos, capturing every special and candid moment of the day, to last a lifetime.
