Spring 2014 Carclew House

After months of planning, the day finally came to open the doors at beautiful Carclew House to showcase 40 extremely talented wedding and event vendors who all put their heart and soul in to presenting their products and services.  Seriously, I was totally blown away.

This was LCA’s 4th fair here in Adelaide and since they were established 18 or so months ago I’ve got to know so many amazing people in the wedding and event industry so it was great to catch up with so many familiar faces on the day.

These fairs are made possible not only by the amazing inspiration the exhibitors offer but also the businesses that sponsor the fair. So I’d like to thank Aussie Party Hire who provided the marques and pavillions and a gorgeous display via the Wedding & Flower Room, Brides of Adelaide, Carclew house for providing such a beautiful backdrop (I can’t tell you how many people commented on the character of the building) and also Magnolia Press for designing the art work and welcome sign.

I’d also like to thank the entertainment.  The Elliot Sisters and their amazing band Swing and Tonic, David from Griffin Wedding DJ’s and Shannon Lloyd acoustic.

Lastly, thanks to the girls at Plan Style Party and Fiona Thurlings Photography who did a wonderful job meeting an greeting with over 500 people who came on the day.


To describe the inspiration on offer words such as rustic, industrial, vintage, pretty, elegant, whimsy, botanical, boho and modern all spring to mind so there were ideas a plenty for every type of Bride.

Guests enterd via a beautiful rustic door arbour made by By The Oaktree which was decorated by Eliza W Flora.

Vida Events and Bluebelle Studio took over the board room and filled it full of so many beautiful details.  They did an awesome job!

Rather than a formal runway, Project Wifey collaborated with Lalkas Face, Glam Fix on the go and Bella in Bloom with model couples walking around the venue.

We were also blessed with no one but 2 vintage caravans with The Little Cake Tin and Little Vintage Bar and Van on board.

Vida Events created a huge pallet wall for Illume Flowers which was filled with gorgeous flowers and greenery providing the perfect backdrop for Life in Still Photography to capture couples against.





PLUS we had the amazing team from Rubix Booths back for a third fair.  These guys rock I LOVE their open booth.

This was all expertly captured on film by the lovely Jason from Captivate Films so take a look at some of the footage here and soak up the atmosphere!

LCA Loves ♥ Captivate Films

I think this video says it all really.  It captures the love, creativity, passion and fun that goes into each and every wedding fair.  The way it’s been filmed by Jason at Captivate Films is perfect too. Can’t wait to see the next fair’s film! Not long to go now…..

Rubix Booths Winter 2014

Photo booths continue to evolve and they just get better and better!

Rubix Booths have exhibited with LCA a couple of times now and it has to be remarked at how friendly they are to deal with. They’re clearly extremely passionate about their business and the way it’s operated.

They have a number of gorgeously creative set ups and no end of fab props to use. Here’s some awesome fun pics from the Winter fair in Hahndorf – maybe you can spot yourself in them??!

Thanks so much to Rubix Booths for creating so much fun once again  : ) Check them out here Rubix Booths 2014-08-07_0004 2014-08-07_0005 2014-08-07_0006 2014-08-07_0007 2014-08-07_0008 2014-08-07_0009 2014-08-07_0010 2014-08-07_0011 2014-08-07_0012 2014-08-07_0013 2014-08-07_0014 2014-08-07_0015 2014-08-07_0016 2014-08-07_0017 2014-08-07_0018 2014-08-07_0019 2014-08-07_0020 2014-08-07_0021 2014-08-07_0022 2014-08-07_0023 2014-08-07_0024 2014-08-07_0025 2014-08-07_0026

LCA Winter Fair Wrap Up

Last weekend we along with 30 other exhibitors headed on up to historical Hahndorf for the first LCA Winter fair.

There’s a number of thank you’s to say to those who made it possible. First up to amazing stylists By The Oaktree for styling the venue.  Your creativity has no boundaries!!  Simply amazing.

Also to Sail & Swan for designing the beautiful artwork.

With an amazing list of exhibitors displaying so much creative flair, it’s no wonder so many Brides came away with so many ideas, contacts and inspiration. It’s always such a joy to see so many smiley Brides and the Grooms seemed pretty impressed too.

We were even blessed with some gorgeous weather up in the hills which made a change from the cold and wet Winter weather we’ve been having of late.

Here’s some images from the day to give you a feel for the day……. Looking forward to doing it all again in the hills next year!

Love Cherish Adore ‘In The Hills’ ~ 3rd August 2014



The Adelaide Hills is a spectacular place to get married with so many outstandingly beautiful venues to choose from.  The vines, rolling landscape and the peace and quiet are just magical whatever the season.

Bringing Love Cherish Adore to the hills was a conscious decision since many of our exhibitors are such a great fit for the rustic, vintage and romantic weddings that the hills and surrounding areas like McLaren Vale do so well.

The venue for this fair is in the middle of stunning Hahndorf so you can make a morning, afternoon or whole day of it and visit some of the many gorgeous eateries and boutique shops on offer.

Who’s Exhibiting……?

As usual, we’ve got a fantastic line up of passionate, creative and inspiring vendors and suppliers covering all bases of your wedding needs including

Cakes, stylists, stationery, photographers, celebrants, bespoke bridal gowns, a winery, a vintage bridal trailer and bar and more will be showcasing their talent and creativity.

This fair is sponsored by Brides of Adelaide which means every Bride will receive their latest edition soon to hit the shelves. We’ve also got Husband & Wife team By The Oaktree styling the venue for us and would like to thank to sponsor Sail & Swan for designing our beautiful artwork.

A list of confirmed exhibitors to date is available on Facebook with more being added very soon.


With thanks to Andrew Mazzone Design Jewellers we have these beautiful earrings worth over $180.00 to giveaway to one lucky Bride.  These stunning earrings will be placed randomly in one of the goodie bags on offer.


On the day there will be plenty of other offers as each Bride will receive a tote bag to put their complimentary copy of Brides of Adelaide magazine inside.  Many of our exhibitors will also be offering fair discounts and samples too.

Entry to the fair is just $5.00 and a pre paid ticket is not required.  Too easy!

Bring along your bestie, Bridesmaid, Mum, Aunty and get inspired. We really look forward to seeing you there!!




New & Exciting Times

It’s almost 12 months to the day that Love Cherish Adore was born and it’s been a whirl wind year for sure.

In that time, 2 fairs have been organised with 2 more in the pipeline plus the website has had a major redesign which includes an online directory of exciting wedding suppliers and vendors.  This will be a fabulous resource for Brides planning their big day and a great platform for vendors to reach out to these Brides.  This is due to go live very soon so watch this space!

If you’re interested in being listed on this directory then drop me a line and I will forward you over some information.

Winter Fair

Next in line is the Winter fair on 3rd August at Hahndorf Memorial Institute.  A boutique fair sponsored by Brides of Adelaide Magazine, hills based Stylists By The Oaktree and designer Sail and Swan.  Expect to see as usual a line up of exceedingly passionate and creative vendors and suppliers with jaw dropping inspiration for your wedding or big event.


LCA Winter 14_low reseditweb

A list of exhibitors for this event will be available on our Facebook page and will also be listed on our directory very soon.


Last but not least, we’re expecting a shipment of some new and exciting hire items soon including some cake stands, chalkboards, croquet and a US style mail box very soon.  Can’t wait for them to arrive!

Love Cherish Adore March 14

On Sunday 30th March 2014, we hosted our second fair at the beautiful Norwood Concert Hall. Apart from it being on the first floor (everyone’s legs were aching after bumping in and out!) the character of the venue really helped to set the scene for the fair.

We were once again proudly sponsored by Brides of Adelaide which as you will know is the stunning SA based wedding magazine featuring lots of amazing SA suppliers and vendors.

Thanks also to Norwood Concert hall for their support and sponsorship and not least, the extremely talented Sharon from Magnolia Press who designed all our art work including our beautiful chalkboard signage on the day. Sharon also co ordinated the inspiration table made some gorgeous ribbon tassles for reception and made our hessian banners hung outside the venue.

Thank you also to Fabulous Functions for the beautiful floral display at reception.

After months of planning, it was a great feeling to see the venue being totally transformed with every single exhibitor pulling out the stops to create stunning displays for their products and services.

There were many proud moments with people giving us amazing feedback. I take no credit for this though. Love Cherish Adore is only as good as the exhibitors it showcases so thank you to all the exhibitors for all your hard work!

The atmosphere was set alive with live entertainment from The Various Nefarious, a multi piece jazz band. Griffin Wedding DJ’s is also thanked for putting together a great play list of electro swing and chillout tunes.

The day was captured on film too by Premiere Films. Here’s a link to watch it.


Thank you Travis for your hard work!

The event began with 6 lovely volunteers greeting the hundreds of Brides and Guests with the first 250 Brides receiving a canvas tote full of offers and discounts plus room for their complimentary copy of Brides of Adelaide and all the other treats and samples exhibitors were offering. Upstairs on the first floor hosted all the exhibitors with their displays, fun photo booths by Rubix Booths and Retro Photobooths food and drink by Two Bit Villains, hair and make up demos by the wonderful Gemma Vendetta and lots & lots of cake and dessert samples!

With out further ado, here are some images from the day.


























































Hello and welcome

Hello & Welcome to to our newly designed blog and website!

It’s here wooo hooooo! It was a big decision to invest in a new website so soon however it was an easy decision to commission our fantastic designer Danni from Robertson Photography & Design up in QLD. As you can see, she has done a fabulous, fabulous job! Thank you so much Danni xx

There’s lots going on behind the scenes here at Love Cherish Adore with more fairs coming soon and a desire to see more blogging going on. It would be great to see some guest posts by SA wedding suppliers and some real wedding submissions so please do get in touch if you’re interested in being a part of the blog.

What else is newsworthy? Well Sunday’s fair went extremely well so I’ll be writing about that very soon plus it was all captured on film by Premiere Films. This is super exciting and will be shared here very soon too. Every single exhibitor put in a huge amount of thought, detail and creativity into their stands. I heard nothing but amazing feedback from Brides and visitors.

So, we’re coming into Winter which is a traditionally quieter time for weddings although I don’t think you can beat a cosy Winter wedding myself. A great time to be planning your wedding though and with this in mind we have 2 dates coming up in the Winter and Spring time so save the date as soon as they’re announced!

That’s it from me for now. Lots more coming very soon…
