Against the backdrop of their very own farm, eco-friendly couple Melissa and Kyle celebrated their marriage in true country style last NYE with friends, family, good wholesome local rustic food and a fun, relaxed party.

After their engagement, newly-weds Melissa and Kyle along with 2 year old daughter April packed up and left Adelaide to move into their dream home at Kinkella Farm across the border from Mount Gambier in Victoria. Melissa tells us ‘the very first time we drove down the driveway, we knew it would be the perfect location for our wedding. It was also the perfect excuse for our family and friends who live in Adelaide to visit our piece of paradise and see why we love it so much.’

In preparation for their big DIY day, they spent many days getting the property back up to scratch with friends and family pitching in together to help them bring together all of the elements they wanted.  This included homemade brew gifted by a friend and even a fireworks display provided by their neighbour. ‘Don’t be afraid to ask for help. In lieu of gifts, many of our friends and family helped out which made it feel like a special community event and brought everyone close together’  is bride Melissa’s big tip.

After a rocky start in the morning that saw their bread order being forgotten (saved by a last minute note to the local baker the night before who worked a few hours longer to bake the 300 rolls they needed) and Kyle sorting our some water issues on their property, Melissa and Kyle’s ceremony and reception, which even included entertainment from Kyle’s very own band The Timbers Band could not have been any more perfect!
