Jemimah & Matt’s Open-Air Adelaide Wedding

Jemimah made a run for it just before Matt popped the question – but for good reason! During a sunset hike up a cliff in Second Valley, he had challenged her to race to the top. “Not expecting such a competitive reaction I took off,” Jemimah laughs, “leaving a slightly nervous Fiancé-to-be calling out for me to come back!” When she finally heard his shouts, she turned to find him down on one knee a good 50 metres away holding a ring, with the sun setting behind him. Can we just savour that image for a moment?

Having studied Fashion Design, this babin’ bride knows her way around a sewing machine so she took it upon herself to design the dress she’d been dreaming of, “The design of the dress was a modern interpretation of the 1920’s drop-waisted dresses. Making the dress myself gave me the freedom to have the dress fit, look and be made in the fabrics I wanted. I also feel I saved someone the pain of dealing with me as a fussy bride!”

Scout Edwards of Whitewall Photography captured some stellar snaps of these sweethearts, and with festoon lights, bright blooms and a relaxed vibe, their open-air ceremony and reception at Adelaide’s Beaumont House was every bit the rustic-industrial affair they imagined.

This wise bride suggests newlyweds focus on what’s important - “Just keep in mind the most important thing about the day is that you’re marrying the man/woman of your dreams. It’s the days, months and years after that are what counts and not necessarily the wedding day itself.”
