Jess & Tom

Jess and Tom wanted their wedding to be an ‘old fashioned country shindig’, and boy do we wish we were invited because it looks like the party of the year! In the gorgeous Clare Valley that they call home, Jess and Tom put on one huge celebration for 175 of their nearest and dearest, and the laid back, rustic theme with pops of colour has us swooning!

With a picturesque venue like the Curly Goose, the couple didn’t need to go overboard with decorations to make it feel special. There were several unique touches the couple made themselves like the seating chart from an old gate, and the table numbers from hessian and a wool bale stencil which perfectly complement the rustic vibes. We love the gorgeous clear marquee set up by Auburn Event Hire, with bare wooden tables which bring the formality down a notch and make it feel like a warm, cosy dinner with friends. The ‘car-bar’ set up for guests in the back to Tom’s ute was a huge hit on the warm day too! Guests feasted on family style platters (including lamb from the couples own farm!) and a decadent dessert table, as well as amazing local wines.

The couple has this advice for planning your own wedding: “Don’t sweat the small stuff. It’s really easy to get caught up in what you ‘should’ have at your wedding, but think about what’s really important to you. For us it was making sure both the lead up and the wedding day were super relaxed and laid back, having plenty of delicious food, free flowing wine and beer, awesome music and a really fun and happy vibe. If you pick the best suppliers you can who share your vision and make sure you have a good bunch of people around you, everything else should just come together. Remember why it is that you’re getting married in the first place”. Guys, we could agree more.

Celine & Sacha

We all dream of re-living our wedding day right? That magical day doesn’t just have to live on in your memory, as this couple prove! Celine and Sacha, with the help of a few wonderful suppliers, styled their own perfect vow renewal in Adelaide around 18 months after tying the knot. Full of gorgeous details, these two created a second wedding day just for them in order to celebrate their love and create even more happy memories. Celine got so into the vow renewal planning she started wearing her wedding dress around the house in the lead up!

The couple says of their vendors: “Everyone was outstanding, from hair and makeup, stunning flowers, beautiful decorations, and absolutely incredible photographs and video. Having a wedding planner like Godswood Event Planning to tie it all together, to choose the right suppliers and organise everyone was wonderful. Mandy arranged everything perfectly and created a beautiful vow renewal for us, completely stress free.”

When asked why they chose to do a vow renewal, the couple had this to say: “We believe a wedding doesn’t have to be just a once in a life-time event. We want to celebrate our love anytime we want and this vow renewal allowed it to be just about us and strengthen our commitment to each other.” And if that isn’t a good enough reason, we don’t know what is.

Jessica & Luke

Hold on for this heartfelt wedding captured by Will and Co Photography! After eyeing each other off at the local pub, Jessica took a gamble on Luke and wrote her number down for him on a TAB slip. On their first date they discovered a shared love for chicken parmi, and they’ve been smitten ever since!
Sadly, Luke lost his beautiful mum a year later. He proposed to Jessica in their home near a photo of his mum, and they threw themselves into planning a fun but profoundly moving wedding with lots of gorgeous unique touches to remember those that couldn’t be there with them to celebrate.
Despite being a florist herself, Jessica entrusted her vision to Knot & Ko so she could relax and enjoy the day, and the burgundy tones of the florals carry through the wedding beautifully with stationery, signage and bridesmaids gowns all complimenting the always-gorgeous Marybank backdrop.
This couples advice for planning your own day?
“Be organised, communicate with your suppliers, ask questions and don’t stress out! Don’t be too fussy! If anything doesn’t work out to plan, you are going to be the only ones who will notice. Do what makes you happy, don’t plan the day around your guests, they will love it regardless! If you have a budget, use an excel spreadsheet to track costs and mark off deposits and payments to keep track of your spending. This helped us a lot!”

Kimberly & Dan

A Tinder match, a New Year’s Eve proposal and a relaxed approach to wedding planning led to this stunning Semaphore wedding for Kimberly and Dan. This couple knew that the Semaphore Palais was the venue for them the moment they walked past, and once Kimberly found her dream dress all the other details fell into place. Kimberly’s advice for stress-free wedding planning is to choose vendors that you connect with and trust – and then let them do what they do best. Sort of like our philosophy here at Love Cherish Adore!

We love the neutral-but-glam colour scheme, classic florals, and quirky touches this couple added to their day. Guests were treated to a balloon artist, who was a hit with young and old, and danced the night away to the Neapolitans who received rave reviews! Jess from Lilac in Hand Photography shot the couple and their bridal party with an industrial backdrop and some gorgeous natural light, and then had a sneaky beach shoot at sunset so Kimberly and Dan could enjoy some time together. The result is these amazing collection images that the couple will cherish forever.

Carly & Grant

A wild, wet and windy day might send some couples into a frenzy, but relaxed pair Carly and Grant took it all in their stride when their wedding day was interrupted with torrential rain and gale force winds! Apart from being stunning in every detail, this Adelaide Hills wedding proves you can get some pretty amazing wedding photos even when the weather doesn’t cooperate. Photographers Wilson and Lewis sourced white and clear umbrellas to shelter the bridal party, and the bride and groom snuck out a bit later when the rains eased for some more beautiful photos in the vines. We just love the huge smiles on everyone’s faces in this wedding and the simple and elegant details at every turn. We hope this post inspires you to go with the flow, whatever the weather has in store for you on your big day!

Nicole & Josh

Four years after being seated next to each other at a the wedding of mutual friends, Nicole and Josh tied the knot in a stunningly simple outdoor wedding in McLaren Vale. Making the most of the beautiful natural surrounds and their love of the outdoors, Nicole and Josh’s wedding photos reflect a fun and relaxed day that incorporated little touches unique to them.

Gorgeous pup Lilah nailed the ring bearer duties, and luckily someone had a pair of scissors handy when the double knot attaching the ring bag to her collar couldn’t be untied!

Guests raved about the food, wine and beer from Ekhidna Wines, and were gifted the couple’s favourite treat of Fruchocs as a special bonbonerie. Scroll on for all the amazing photos from Kerry Rose Photography, and details of Nicole and Josh’s dream team of vendors who made their day truly wonderful and stress free!

Peri & Oscar

Newlyweds Peri & Oscar are proof that a cold wintery wedding can still be full of warmth, heart and soul.

Despite it being such a cold and windy day, everyone was warmed by the love that these two have for each other at this beautiful Barossa wedding.

Peri and Oscar maintained a worldwide long distance relationship for many years between New Zealand, Sweden, The Netherlands and Australia featuring as a base for their careers, love of travel and adventure.

The setting for their heartfelt celebrations was the unique stone barn and gardens of Dimchurch Vineyards at Ebenezer in the Northern Barossa region.  Peri has been a florist for some time and was always going to make sure her big day was beautifully presented and with the help of Fleur Social they pulled together a stunning backdrop for both the ceremony and reception.

With plenty of photo locations within a short drive from the venue, they set out with photographer Pete from What Pete Shot where they were faced with biting wind and rain. But, knowing that Winter gives amazing soft light that makes shooting a dream, Pete was unexpectedly blessed with 15 minutes of cracking light which of course he took full advantage of.  With Peri and Oscar’s genuine affection for each other, Pete was able to capture some shots that we think completely capture the essence of who they both are.
