We both live in Melbourne, so it was quite the adventure to organise the wedding in another State, and a rural town at that! Many of our guests wondered why we decided to get married in McLaren Vale. It really didn’t have anything to do with our everyday life, nor was it a place we grew up in (Armin is German and I grew up in Brisbane). Essentially, its the place where we fell in love! So, when thinking of the most perfect location to host our special day, we immediately thought of this region and the opportunity to share it with all our guests. There are so many wonderful things about McLaren Vale – the wine, restaurants, beach and countryside. And after the 15th March, our wedding! The weekend went amazingly and everyone had a wonderful time. We were very privileged to have been able to share our day with our loved ones in one of the most perfect places on earth for us.

Such a beautiful wedding.. Mclaren Vale is just breathtaking, it holds a special place in my heart because my husband & I were engaged in Mclaren Vale and for our wedding we bought all the wines from the region… It truly is a beautiful place of rolling hills, gorgeous coastline, superb food and wine and lovely people!

I may be clutching at straws here but I am desperate to have this dress as my wedding dress. Does anyone know how I might be able to find one or is willing to sell one? I can’t even find an image of another one online. If anyone can help please mail me – thanks.

Laura | Reply

It’s from Jenny Packham…and the prices are ridiculous, about $5,000.00 USED. Search for “Jenny Packham used wedding dress”. You will find several (not a lot) in the style(s) that you like, including this one. Hope that helps. :)

I have always dream to have destination wedding. I live in Sydney and would want someone to provide me with wonderful wedding planning services. I would prefer a wedding planner who is a specialist in his field and could help me have an absolutely unique destination wedding through his wonderful ideas. Is a good place to find such a wedding planner?

Hi, my fiancé and I are planning our wedding in McLaren Vale. Karen (or anyone!) can you tell me where you stayed while you were there?? Desperate to find appropriate accommodation.
