Scott and Meagan chose the rolling Adelaide Hills as the backdrop for their Wedding. From the accommodation, to the Ceremony and photos in between, this region played host to their union.
The boys were based at the Hahndorf Resort and from the minute I arrived there was animation and antics. My time here was brief, casting a watchful eye as this bunch of larrikins got sorted.
I then took a short drive to the girls, who were staying in an Air B&B property at Stirling that had oodles of window light. The open plan living of the B&B enabled Meagan’s prep to occur surrounded by her leading ladies and bathed in natural light. Whilst she had a few onlookers present, the most important was Meagan’s niece Mia who was also an honorary bridal party member. Big eyes watched on as her Aunty transformed into a stunning bride.
Still in the hills, it was time to head for the Ceremony at Maximilian’s in Verdun. This was my first time at this venue, despite it being only minutes from my doorstep. I arrived to a vibrant buzz in the air as guests filtered in and mingled with one another. Classic Jags brought the bride to her groom and the stage was set.
Meagan and Scott were lucky enough to be united in marriage by a friend, who unbeknownst to me was conducting her maiden Ceremony. Emily Anderson walked through breezy formalities like a pro, so I was surprised when I later found out that I’d witnessed her first.
Legals aside, it was time for the bridal party to disappear for photos. With the delayed start to Spring the vines were not as lush as the couple had hoped. Instead, we opted for some spots nearby that included the iconic Hahndorf Apple Shed. We also took up residence in the shop front with many passing cars tooting congratulations at the spectacle we created. I lost count of the end toot tally!! A leafy dirt road and a couple of vine shots later and it was time to wrap things up.
I knew from the get go that Scott and Meagan’s Wedding was always going to be about the party. So, following their announcements, I left them to mingle and celebrate into the night.
