Tennille and Ben are the perfect example of why South Australia is becoming a mecca for destination weddings.
Having friends and family coming from all over Australia for their wedding, these two lovebirds made an early decision that since most of their guests would be travelling for the big day that Adelaide would make the perfect place to celebrate. Add to the fact that we’re blessed with so much beautiful countryside, an abundance of wineries and our friendly-welcoming feel, it was Longview in the Adelaide Hills that they fell in love with.
‘We wanted to make sure guests could get the most out of their weekend as many had travelled from interstate so we organised a cruise around Glenelg for the bridal party on the Friday, rehearsal dinner for guests on Saturday in Hahndorf to experience the German town feels (and catch up with everyone before the big day!) and then a recovery winery tour on the Monday.’ said Tennille. Now that’s what we call a celebration!
There were plenty of personal touches which included their favours which were a $3 bet on the Melbourne Cup that they had selected at random for them and placed for the win. Ben also organised a printed map of Australia which he used to show where all the guests had travelled from and used gold pins on each location to show how much they both appreciated the effort everyone went to be there.
There were many favourite moments but one really stood out and that was their choreographed dance with their bridal party which led to literally every single guest hitting the dancefloor to throw some shapes – even Ben’s Grandparents!!
We don’t know about you but you can literally feel the fun and laughter from this wedding radiating from each image and there’s no doubt that there was a good time had by all. Good job Tennille organised some hangover kits -looks like they may have been some sore heads the next day!
