A big part of planning LCA fairs is to get out and about meeting with new and potential exhibitors and vendors. It’s a part of my business that I like the most since it normally involves lots of tea drinking!
I recently met with Kelly Markos the owner and operator of two stunning and very different venues here in metro SA. These gorgeous venues are Utopia at Waterfall Gully and Glanville Hall.
Kelly manages both of these gorgeous venues along with her Husband Justin, an award winning chef with a reputation for producing delicious menus and their team of experienced event professionals.
What was heart warming to hear was Kelly and Justin’s strong culture to make both of their venues a friendly and welcome place for couples to host their ceremonies and receptions. They make great effort to get to know all of their couples and help guide them where needed during the lead up to their wedding day. They also don’t insist on their couples using a preferred supplier list and remain as flexible as possible and open to ideas.
Utopia at Waterfall Gully
I met Kelly at their first venue Utopia which is set within the conservation area of Waterfall Gully to the East of Adelaide just minutes from Greenhill Road. You’d never believe you’re so close to the city here as it has a gorgeous country feel about it.
Since the venue is heritage listed, it’s extremely picturesque and full of character incorporating stunning views and of course the iconic waterfall which offers spectacular photo opportunities whatever the season.
Kelly and Justin acquired their second venue Glanville Hall which dates back to 1856 in 2014 and since then have refurbished it into a magnificent and elegant venue.
Located in the seaside suburb of Semaphore, this historical venue is surrounded by beautifully maintained gardens next to a green golf course. The building itself is best described as striking offering multiple options for ceremonies, photo opportunities and reception rooms. The venue can accomodate both large and small weddings and with the support of Kelly and her experienced team, everything will be thought of leaving you to enjoy your day as it unfolds just perfectly.
You can meet Kelly and her team at our Adelaide wedding fair on 12th April at Norwood Town Hall who will be on hand to chat to you about your wedding plans and how these to beautiful and very different venues may be the perfect place to host your wedding.
They’re also providing catering on the day so make it a date and enjoy some high tea inspired food and drink to make your visit on 12th April a memorable event.
