Tiah & Stephen’s Castle Wedding in the Adelaide Hills

Tiah & Stephen’s Castle Wedding in the Adelaide Hills

Tiah and Stephen knew that epic Adelaide Hills venue The Manor at Basket Range was the wedding venue for them, before event setting foot inside! Tiah says she felt chills go through her as they were going up the driveway – if that’s not love at first wedding venue sight we don’t know what is!
These two kept things simple with a classic colour palette, lots of meaningful DIY touches and having the whole family involved in their big day.
Despite a few hitches (their eldest son was sick for most of the wedding!), this couple pulled of their dream wedding with a bunch of talented suppliers who went over and above to make sure everything went according to plan. The couple give credit 22 Wedding Films for perfectly capturing their day, including the grooms hilarious speech, and The Manor at Basket Range for an absolutely perfect reception.
We love classic styling and simple elegance of this wedding (Her veil! All the candles! The roses!) which almost feels like it could be at a chateau somewhere in Europe! The couple chose to have their day photographed by Lilac in Hand Photography; Tiah says they are the best photographers for those natural un-posed moments: “They captured every moment to perfection. For part of the day i did not even notice they were there which was great, I got to sit in my love bubble with my husband while they did their thing.”
Check out the gorgeous images of this beautiful local wedding below!

Above all, marriage means Love. loving each other: on the good days, the tough days the days you want to throw the wet towels that are left on the floor at each other, just loving what we have every single day.

Ashleigh & Mark’s relaxed Willunga wedding

Ashleigh & Mark’s relaxed Willunga wedding

This couple is described themselves as ‘not-fancy’ – uh, we looked at your wedding pics guys, and we beg do differ this wedding looks fancy af! With a classic vibe and a rustic setting, Ashleigh & Mark focused on all the things they love when planning their big day, and the result was a perfectly relaxed, fuss free day with an awesome party vibe!
Of planning the celebration of their love Ash says “Mark and I knew what was important – good people, good food, cold drinks, some quality entertainment, and creating a great atmosphere. We like to think of our wedding as relaxed, but classy. I think we nailed the brief.” We think you do too guys!
We love the blush colour palette and streamlined vibe that comes from a simple, classic theme. While the couple say they didn’t have a theme as such, it’s clear they made choices that made sense for them as a couple, and so everything ties together in a beautiful way that feels so natural!
Key suppliers that made Ashleigh & Mark’s dream day a perfect reality included photo/video duo Laura & Matt from Matthew Dwyer Studio, who the couple say have a great professional and reassuring manner, and flower dynamo Kylie from Flower Society Co. Looking at those simply divine blooms, we can see why Ash was so in love with her bouquet! And if you haven’t been to a wedding where the Happy Leonards have rocked the dance floor, you’re missing out! These guys kicked the party on well into the night.
Enjoy the simple and stunning vibes of this classic wedding below – thanks for sharing your day with us Ash & Mark!

Marriage is all about showing your love and 100% commitment for one another. Our marriage was a celebration of the undevoted love for each other, surrounded by all our loved ones.
