The Barossa Valley has a whole lot to offer, and Leah and Henry wanted their guests to experience the region in full bloom. Their relaxed wedding showcased the amazing wine, local produce and the beauty of the place that Henry’s family have called home for generations. House of Lucie was behind the lens for this sweet affair, capturing the big day itself and the recovery brunch the next day.
The venue for their intimate ceremony was chosen for its sentimental connection. “We were married at Lillefield Gallery in Eden Valley, which was the old Uniting Church and the same space that Henry’s grandparents and parents were married in. It was such a beautiful little space with so much family history.” The couple’s nearest and dearest styled the church with lavender, golden wattle, olive branches and wreaths made from Shiraz vines straight from the family property.
Keeping things relaxed and skipping a few formalities, Leah and Henry opted for a cheese platter and family-made wines straight after the ceremony before moving on to the a party style reception for more delicious food and local wine. “We chose Harvest Kitchen as we loved the space. We wanted everyone travelling for our wedding to experience the real Barossa and this venue symbolised that for us.” Taking every opportunity to connect and spend time with their friends and family, an epic recovery brunch extended the celebration well into the next day. Guests tucked into breakfast wedding cake by Scullery Made, and hangover-curing grub by sustainable food truck, Forage Supply Co.
