It’s only 20 minutes from the city, but the Uraidla Show Hall seems worlds away! Surrounded by greenery and the lush Adelaide Hills landscape, Millie and Ben didn’t bother looking at any other venue for their summer wedding!
A typical ‘Adelaide’ love story, Millie and Ben had multiple connections through various friends and sporting groups, and finally officially ‘met’ at Schoolies! After a gorgeous proposal in Western Australia (Ben was so confident Millie would accept he wrote ‘recently engaged’ on their accommodation bookings!) this couple spent 18 months planning their perfect wedding which drew inspiration from the groom’s choice of a green suit.
The whole family got involved in the wedding preparations in some way – Millie’s clever mum made all the bridesmaid dresses, as well as several outfits for the guests! Ben’s dad made a stage for the reception, and a good friend of the couple made their gorgeous (and delicious) wedding cake!
Ben and Millie say there were a few stand out moments on their wedding day they will cherish – seeing each other at the ceremony, celebrating with friends and family from all over Australia (something we don’t take for granted these days!) and dancing the Greek Zorba with almost all their guests!
Perhaps the most memorable moment though came when Ben decided it would be a great idea to cartwheel out of the reception! Millie says: “The funniest moment (on reflection) was at the very end of the night when exiting the reception the bridesmaids were doing cartwheels. Not to be outdone, Ben also decided to do a cartwheel and dislocated and broke his elbow. We then waited for 2 hours for an ambulance and spent our wedding night in emergency.”
Well that’s going to make a good story in years to come! Check out all the gorgeous images from Millie and Ben’s wedding below – we hope you love it as much as we do!
