The Garden of Unearthly Delights: Adelaide Fringe Festival Wedding

Kate, who is originally from Perth, met Ethan while she was living in London. Ethan is in a band and they were reunited at Fringe World Festival in 2017. Kate had returned to Perth and was working there, and Ethan and his band flew over to perform!

Two years later they married, and of course they had to do in a way fitting for their love story, so they chose to do it at Adelaide Fringe Festival, specifically in the Corona Theatre in The Garden of Unearthly Delights area.

“Neither of us had ever really imagined getting married”, Kate told us, “certainly not in a hurry, but it was the only way to guarantee we could get a visa to live in the same place. Once we knew we were getting married it was a great excuse to get carried away in the romance of it all!”

A Secret Wedding with Dried Flowers and Natural Tones

Kirsty and Luke didn’t want lots of fuss for their January wedding, but an elopement wasn’t quite right either. They wanted their parents to be able to see them get married so they decided to have a tiny wedding with just their families. The day was literally just them, both sets of parents, three of their siblings and their 18-month old son.

Kirsty had such a vision for the day and wanted to theme the day around her Grace Loves Lace dress which she actually bought before they were even engaged because she loved it so much! To compliment this she opted for natural tones and dried flowers. Luckily, this idea worked perfectly in their venue, Moore and Moore Café, in Fremantle.

Micro Australian Beach Wedding with a Silver Sequin Dress

Jac and Matt’s November wedding was, like so many 2020 couples, smaller than they thought it would be. Although they didn’t get the big party of a wedding which they initially planned, after having to reschedule twice, they decided to pair everything back and just elope on a beach instead.

The couple met when they were teenagers but lost contact, only reconnecting in their mid-twenties. They had a ceremony at Sandringham Beach in Victoria followed by a cake cutting and drinks reception at the nearby park. Matt’s mum put together a platter of nibbles and made a cake, and Jac’s sister made a cocktail for everyone.

The chose Eco Studio Village in Mudgeeraba, Queensland as their venue and did all the decorating themselves. They bought flowers from the supermarket where Matt works and his cousin made the cake.

A Simple Beach Wedding with Rustic & Pink Details

Jess and Luke wanted a simple wedding, which didn’t require putting too much extra pressure into their already busy lives. They chose The Boathouse on Shelly Beach in Manly, NSW, which solidified their beachy theme, and the venue were able to handle a lot of the logistics for them.

“Our wedding theme was simple”, Jess told us. “Luke and I aren’t big over the top people and we didn’t want a massive lavish wedding that wouldn’t suit us. We just wanted our wedding to have a pretty and relaxed vibe.”

They decided on a outdoor rustic style but most of their colours and other choices were made with the bride’s floral Wendy Makin dress as the jumping off point. “The dress was the inspiration for the colour scheme and all the flowers and decorations”, she said.
