Love Cherish Adore at Ayers House

Wow what a weekend! The last wedding fair of 2015 was held last Sunday on a prefectly sunny day at heritage listed Ayers House on North Terrace.

It’s been an absolute pleasure working with Amy, Amelia, Liam and the team at Ayers House and an honor to showcase so many amazing vendors at this beautiful venue.

For those of you who know Ayers House or visited yesterday, I think you’ll agree that it’s a high quality venue offering diverse space to make your wedding uniquely yours plus heaps of stunning photo backdrops.

There was plenty of amazing inspiration on offer at the fair along with the usual high standard of vendors available to choose from.

This event wouldn’t have been possible without the support and enthusiasm from the amazing team at Ayers House, the wonderful exhibitors and also the fabilous team of volunteers on the day.

Here’s some pics of the day for you to enjoy.

Chapel Hill The Retreat

McLaren Vale is as you know a hot wedding destination here in South Australia with a variety of different venues available, all with a different vibe.  Chapel Hill The Retreat is known as one of the premier venues in the area offering a high quality experience from start to finish.

Kathryn and her experienced and passionate team who are flanked by head Chef Mark Richmond go to great lengths to ensure every single couple who marry at this beautiful venue have the best day ever. Their experience and knowledge of the industry means you can be assured you’re in safe and capable hands with every detail catered for.

One of the biggest selling points of Chapel Hill is its exclusivity. From the moment your wedding booking begins, this magnificent venue is yours. Set back from the quiet road, you really do get a feeling of calm and relaxation.

Another selling point is that there are a number of rooms at the venue so your wedding party can all stay onsite with you.

During bump in for this fair we were treated to being able to stay over in these rooms which were super comfortable and stylish offering stunning views across the vines. A totally blissful way to start the day!

We began planning this wedding fair over a year ago so seeing it all come together was exciting. There was a great mix of inspiration available thanks to the super talented exhibitors.

Spring Wedding Fair at Ayers House

I’ve no idea where this year is going but it’s going very fast. We’re nearly into Spring which is when the last Love Cherish Adore wedding fair of 2015 is taking place at breathtaking Ayers House on Sunday 20th September.

Featuring the usual high standard of exhibitors, this fair is going to be so exciting since we’ve got the spectacular heritage listed backdrop of Ayers House to work with.

Ayers House 6601 6602

Full of character and history, this iconic house situated in the heart of the CBD dates back over 160 years and was owned by mover and shaker Sir Henry Ayers who was a renowned man about town who was Premier of the State no less than 7 times!

We’ll be using every inch of this diverse venue to showcase exhibitors and offer unique experiences such as the bridal bootsale, photobooth and live entertainment.

There will be a bar open so you can purchase some bubbles while you soak up the atmosphere and get down to ticking off your wedding planning list with all Brides to be receiving a LCA calico tote bag and a complimentary copy of The Brides Diary. Not only thatbut the first 100 Brides will receive a complimentary glass of prosecco.

In the meantime, you’ll be seeing alot of this image by Andrea Laube Photography to promote the event across the city.

Adelaide Hills Wedding Fair

There’s something about the Adelaide Hills that makes it a natural wedding destination. Beautiful countryside, amazing wineries that double up as venues along with a touch of heritage charm.

The second Love Cherish Adore Adelaide Hills Wedding Fair was held once again in the heart of Hahndorf where over 25 exhibitors showcased to hundreds of people who came to meet and greet with vendors and soak up some wedding inspiration.

The fair was sponsored by hills based vendor By The Oaktree who not only put together yet another showstopping display but also put up all of the lighting and was a driving force assisting in organising the event.

As usual, the standard of visual presentation was of the usual high standard that you come to expect from our fairs along with the friendliest vendors you’d ever want to meet.

There’s a few people to thank. To Kat Raynor for singing her heart out (this girl sings like an angel!) to Kirsty, Erin and Melanie for being amazing volunteers, to View Road Wines for handing out free glasses of their delicious wine and to Jenna from By The Oaktree for being a big part of putting the day together.

Spending time working with all of these amazing vendors is such a pleasure that I can hardly call it work. It’s more like a paid hobby. Stand by for lots of pretty images and amazing inspo.

McLaren Vale Wedding Fair

The Fleurieu offers an amazing variety of wedding venues and everything a couple looking for the winery & beachy vibe. It was therefore an obvious no brainer to organise a Love Cherish Adore wedding fair in this  beautiful part of our state.


We’re extremely proud and excited to be working alongside Chapel Hill The Retreat which is a stunning venue in McLaren Vale offering exclusivity, un rivalled views and a highly experienced management team behind it.

McLaren Vale wedding fair

The venue includes a multi use terrace which sponsor Renniks Hire will be covering with a marquee plus there will be the usual high standard of exhibitors onboard showcasing a variety of key wedding products and services.

Since we’re at a winery, there will be complimentary wine being served plus canapes so you can sample the high quality of food served at Chapel Hill.

The Brides Diary will be giving away complimentary magazines which fit nicely in our LCA calico bags.

The best thing is that entry is just $5 and you don’t need to buy a ticket! See you at the fair ♥

Barossa Wedding Fair

Last weekend I headed north to the beautiful region of the Barossa Valley and Angaston Town Hall to host LCA’s first wedding fair in this iconic destination wedding region.

It’s always exciting to see an empty shell of a venue transformed into a wedding wonderland and with the help of 25 or so exhibitors and half a km of fairy lights that’s exactly what we did!

2015-05-06_0029 2015-05-06_0034

Firstly a list of thanks.  To Jenna from By The Oaktree for her styling skills and for being an awesome road trip buddy. To Maggie from Miss Maggies Flowers for putting together a 5m long floral extravaganza plus styling her own beautiful stand, to Laura from Minty Mary Pea for greeting all of the Brides at reception with such gorgeous enthusiasm.  To Suzanne and her team from El Limon Vintage Pop up Picnic for providing us with food and drink and to all of the exhibitors who once again raised the bar of visual presentation. Finally to WHITE magazine for sponsoring the fair.

It takes a lonnnnnnnnnng time to co ordinate an event (event management is neither glamourous or easy!) however it’s such a great feeling when it all comes along together.

About Love Cherish Adore

I thought it was about time I introduced myself to you all as the organiser of Love Cherish Adore wedding fairs. Hello, I’m Susie……

I’m the wrong side of 39 (I may or may not be turning 40 soon **cough**!) and I came to live in Adelaide with my Husband and Daughter in 2012 from the UK which was a move we had planned to make for a long time. We had our visa’s all lined up and arrived only with our suitcases on a drizzly day in August with only a temporary rental lined up. No job, no home and no home comforts! We’d chosen Adelaide to be our new home for lots of reasons and I’m so glad we did.  We love living here in Adelaide.

A little while later Hubbie thankfully secured a job, Daughter went off to school and our contents of our container arrived 4 weeks after we moved into our long term rental.  The early days of sitting in an empty room on $7 picnic chairs from Kmart will stay with me forever but in a good way.  It was all part of the journey!  Fast forward almost 3 years and we now have 2 cats and a mortgage so Adelaide is definitely home now.

Love Cherish Adore was established early 2013 on the back of my experience as a vintage wedding fair organiser in the UK which was something I loved doing and dreamed may happen here in beautiful Adelaide. Talk about a dream come true!

I’d like to sincerely thank Sharon from Magnolia Press for her creative input in the early days.  Sharon creates and designs beautiful letterpress stationery and handpainted signage so stop by her website.

Team Love Cherish Adore

Love Cherish Adore fairs are designed to showcase a wide range of modern wedding inspiration with a vintage and rustic twist which is so in keeping with Adelaide’s heritage and wineries. Exhibitors are handpicked for their ability to present to you a visual feast of ideas which is oh so creative and pretty.  Like ‘Pinterest come to life’ said one Bride which sums it up pretty well!

I’m also passionate that the range of inspiration on offer is aspirational to all.  There’s nothing ‘too cool for school’ about LCA fairs.  Just beautiful and creative ideas in a humble, open and friendly setting.

I’d also like to mention how proud I am of the team of exhibitors who showcase with me.  They go to extraordinary lengths to present this inspiration to you and it’s always such a pleasure to see what happens behind the scenes. Seeing exhibitors connect with one another, exchanging contacts and ideas.  Smiling, hugging and having fun. It’s like a little wedding fair family that comes together with many exhibitors becoming valued friends.

Being local myself (we’re not far off getting our citizenship so I consider myself to be Adelaidean!), I try where possible to meet all of my exhibitors in person if they’ve not exhibited before and they all know I’m just an e mail or phone call away.  I pride myself on my speed of response to everyone that enquires with me which shouldn’t be a point of difference in business however I know it’s valued. Sadly I know what it’s like to send an e mail and not get a response….it’s not cool.

Support Local

On a day to day basis aside from being a Mum and a Wife, Love Cherish Adore is my full time job and a role I’m extremely passionate about. I spend my working hours within the SA wedding industry researching ideas, meeting new exhibitors, blogging and organising new fairs.   By visiting or exhibiting with Love Cherish Adore you’re supporting local Adelaide based wedding vendors and helping them grow and thrive. I sincerely thank you for that.

Who knows, I may look to expand interstate but for now you can count on me to passionately support the local wedding talent we’re so very lucky to have here in SA.

I’m looking forward to presenting to you the 4 fairs I have over the coming months including the Barossa, Adelaide Hills, McLaren Vale and City plus of course heaps of local real wedding inspiration.

Bye for now!

Love Cherish Adore Norwood Wedding Fair

It’s always so satisfying to see months of planning come together and it certainly did at the Love Cherish Adore Norwood Wedding fair last weekend.

Judging by all of the feedback that’s been received I’m excited to say it was a huge success with Brides mentioning that they loved the modern vintage and rustic inspiration.

There’s so many people to thank who made it happen so in no particular order and without further a do…..


To White Magazine for their sponsorship and support.  It was an absolute pleasure to have editor Carla spend the day with us.

All of the front of house helpers who greeted all of the Brides and patrons on the day with big smiles and enthusiasm.

To Erin and Linda for putting together such engaging workshops!

To Plan Style Party, Fabulous Functions, Magnolia Press, By The Oaktree, Le Pink Petite and The Ink Room for co ordinating the 2 inspiration tables.  They were showstoppingly beautiful!

To all of the exhibitors who once again raised the already high bar to present beautiful stands and amazing products and services.

To Kelly, Justin and their team at Utopia at Waterfall Gully and Gladnville Hall for providing us all with scrummy high tea offerings.

LCA Loves ♥ The Hills Vintage Event Co.

It’s always exciting when a new vendor is established particularly in the field of styling. It takes passion and patience to gather the props and pieces needed to offer this kind of service which Danielle has managed to do beautifully.

I met with Danielle recently for a mini shoot to highlight some of her inventory and we were blessed to have the most perfect day for it!

As her business name suggests, The Hills Vintage Event Co has a vintage and rustic feel about it which is so inkeeping with so many venues in SA and the inventory that I’ve seen to date looks great. My favourite being the peacock chairs.

You can come and meet with Danielle on both 12th April at Norwood Town Hall and 3rd May at Angaston Town Hall – 10.30am – 3,30pm.

Love Cherish Adore Autumn 2016

2016 is here and you may have noticed that it’s a leap year so guess what Ladies, tradition says that you can propose this year!  How so, well according to Irish folklore, St Bridget struck a deal with St Patrick that ladies could propose to men every four years on 29th February.


If you’ve recently got engaged over the Christmas and New Year holidays then huge congratulations to you!  You’re certainly in the right place if you’re looking for some planning tips and awesome vendors to make your wedding day your best day ever.

Wedding fairs are a great place to get some inspiration and ideas plus you can meet vendors to see their work up close and get to know them.  They may also be able to give you an exclusive on the day offer or discount. What’s not to love about that!

Love Cherish Adore fairs offer a balanced mix of around 40 vendors at each fair which is enough to give you variety but not too many that you come away feeling overwhelmed.  You can enjoy a glass of bubbles on arrival which will be served by Steve The Bartender and there’s gorgeous canvas bags for Brides filled with discounts and little treats. We’ll also be confirming a giveaway or 2 very soon for some lucky attendees.

Here’s the kind of inspiration you can expect from just some of our amazing vendors already confirmed.
