Classic Adelaide Wedding with a Modern Twist

Classic with a perfect modern twist, this Gallery On Waymouth wedding captured by Evan Bailey is like taking a peak into this gorgeous couples’ personality. And from the looks of this gallery, I think we could be besties. It was a day full of meaningful details and topped off with a delicious cake made of cheese (see? we’d best friends), and there is even more waiting for you in the VAULT.


From The Bride…When planning our wedding day, we envisioned something that was modern, simple and a great party with family and friends.

With a church ceremony at Sacred Heart College Senior where we first met followed by a reception at an art gallery in the heart of the Adelaide CBD, it allowed us to be creative and place our own special stamp on the big day. Black and white with bold splashes of colour helped us capture that vision and make our wedding classic with a modern twist.

The boys looked great in their black suits from Peter Jackson and the ladies pulled off a mix of white fitted cocktail dresses from Fashion Bunker. This was the perfect pairing with bright pink, dark burgundy flowers that were free structured and modern.

The team at Karen Willis Holmes on High Street Armadale delivered a beautifully detailed strapless sequin covered gown with an accompanying belt.

Our reception was simple as the room at Gallery on Waymouth spoke for itself. The exposed white stone walls against the hardwood floors and vibrant artwork was a beautiful setting for a cocktail reception. We had grouped floral arrangements on the sit down and cocktail tables with the flower wall as our feature. Illume Flowers created a stunning 2m x 2m wall of greenery and dark burgundy flowers to be our backdrop for the wedding cake and dessert table. This was by far the favourite detail to our wedding.

Being obsessed with cheese, we had a cake of exquisite cheeses from Udder Delights in Hahndorf who layered vintage cheddar, creamy brie and a French blue. To accompany the savoury cake, we had an assortment of individual tarts from Swedish tarts based at Henley Beach. DIY was at the forefront of our minds, so much of decorations were done ourselves. We made our own signage for the reception, gift tags for our wedding favours and cards for special comments and well wishes to the newly married couple.

As a parting gift, we offered Yalumba Y-Series piccolo wine bottles to guests as our wedding favour. I once dreamed of having a winery wedding, so this was my little way of bringing the winery to me. Our wedding truly was one large party… Saying ‘I do’ at the alter to hitting the dance floor with our friends made for every special moment to when we became Mr and Mrs Juniper.

As for advice…Be as organized as possible leading up to the wedding. It will allow you to relax that little bit more and enjoy your day! No regrets!

Romantic Adelaide Summer Wedding

Tucked away in southern Australia, this intimate wedding is simplicity at its finest. With bouquets from floral designer Sylvie , the bride stunned in a simple white gown from Cpop accented with a colorful bouquet. The couple took photos behind the gorgeous green backdrop of a vineyard and their love, captured by Lucy Jane Photography is undeniable. You can see all the romantic details here!


From The Bride… Our story is the age old tale of high school sweethearts. Sam and I met in a high school musical and he swept me off my feet with his jokes and laughter. Six years later we were engaged (all our friends saw it coming) and by the seventh it was wedding time. Growing up in the Adelaide Hills, naturally it was where we wanted to be married – close to home in a place that was important to us. Choosing a ceremony location was simple as the church we attend has a beautiful old traditional chapel, and it is attached to the primary school I went to! Our idea for the wedding was always traditional – but we didn’t want it to feel too black & white. We went with a simple and classic style, with the addition of things like colorful flowers to contrast with the simplicity of the ivory dresses and I let the girls choose their own shoes. For the men, they wore handmade brown shoes from Ethiopia and self-tied bow ties. Although we had an idea of what we wanted it to look like, we were never fussy and just let things happen.

Because we were still students, we needed to be a little thrifty in some areas and we knew if we were going to pay money we wanted to let people we knew share their skills with us. We made sure to use resources like free printables from the internet (table numbers were easy this way) and Grandma who was willing to make some jam for the bonbonnieres. Our florist was my best friend who was learning floristry, and it was the perfect opportunity to show off her skills. We went to the flower market together to choose the flowers (so much fun!) and then she arranged all of the bouquets and buttonholes. Our cake was made by another friend’s mum who has a high tea business. For the ceremony we had a string quartet that was organized by a friend of ours, and another school friend’s husband played in the jazz band for the reception. We had a photo booth at the reception for guests to take picture in front of, and it was painted by two of my bridesmaids who are fantastic artists.

Elegant Backyard Wedding in Australia

Moet & Chandon, garden roses and an elegant backyard… if I could hand-pick elements for a wedding re-do, these would all be a part of the mix. Captured by Bentinmarcs Fine Art Photography, this day is a collection of gorgeous images,  an intimate gathering of loved ones and a Bride who literally outfitted the entire wedding party with the help of her mom. See the images here!

At Home

From Bentinmarcs Fine Art PhotographySarah & Tristan had the sweetest intimate wedding held in their backyard with the closet friends and family members. To make the wedding even more amazing was the fact that Sarah and her Mum Kathy from The Ivory Gown made all the dresses, suits and Sarah’s beautiful wedding gown. I truly felt that I was part of the family, never feeling more welcomed at a wedding I even had my own table setting amongst the 18 guests.

From The Bride…I was never one of those girls who had her wedding dress planned in detail from a young age, which might be surprising considering I work with bridal gowns every day. I knew I wanted to include elements reminiscent of the glamour of the “Old Hollywood’ era, but largely let the design evolve as it was being made. I used all silk fabrics with the most beautiful, delicately beaded and sequinned lace and played around with the detail on the bodice until it looked just right. I had intended to sew silk covered buttons down the back of the dress, but I adored the way the lace looked without them, which meant I had to think of a new way to finish the back. The best and most seamless way was to be stitched into the dress! Although this might sound stressful to some, it actually felt really calming to have my mother slowly and carefully place the last stitches on the lace moments before the wedding. Having the opportunity to create my wedding dress with my mother was truly something special, and funnily enough one of the greatest fans of my dress became my dog, a 50kg Maremma, who sat right next to me on my silk train at every opportunity she could get!
