From Angelsmith Photography… Creenagh and Niall celebrated their homespun, heartfelt, rustic wedding last year at the picturesque Glen Ewin Estate in the Adelaide Hills, South Australia. Surrounded by their loved ones, including their three-year-old son Cael, they created a magical day to remember for all! They crafted much of the day themselves, with a focus on unique and personalised elements that truly reflected their core values, their personalities and their mutual tastes. Creenagh, an incredibly detail-orientated creative, tirelessly sourced and crafted the majority of the wedding items herself, spending hours upon hours hand-folding miniature origami cranes, hand-stitching the save-the-dates and wedding invites, creating the table centrepieces and cloth table runners, and innumerable other wonderful vintage and eco-rustic pieces for the day. The setting, against the backdrop of the Glen Ewin lake, accentuated by stone walls and the Pulp Shed in which the reception took place, finished off the amazing rustic 1910’s feel of the day.
Creenagh and Niall saw each other before the ceremony to maximize their time for photographs, given their 5:30 p.m. ceremony. Their ceremony featured readings, a joint blessing by their bridal party members, and a beautiful wooden chest “ceremony” which encased bottles of wine to be shared between them in the future. The trees behind them were adorned with hand-folded paper cranes. The idea of “one thousand paper cranes” was incorporated into the day because of their auspiciousness. Their reception, lit by the glow of paper lanterns throughout the Pulp Shed, included a dessert buffet that featured hand-baked cakes by their friends and relatives. Creenagh dedicated a rendition of “How Sweet It Is” to Niall as a surprise during the reception, and in turn both Niall and Creenagh dedicated “Whenever I See Your Grouchy Face,” a classic Sesame Street song, to their son, who danced with them after their own first dance. It was a beautiful day to remember, shared intimately with family and friends who had travelled from all around Australia to be a part of this very special garden party.
