Adelaide Hills Glen Ewin Estate Wedding

April 21, 2021

“There were two failed attempts but all good things happen in trilogies”, relates Helen about John’s aborted proposal efforts, though it finally led to success along a beach, almost two and half years ago. Packed with an amazing fusion of both Asian & Western elements, this whole day epic kept rolling on and on with fun and laughs. See how it all went down at the picturesque Glen Ewin Estate, nestled in the Adelaide Hills.

THE VENUE: We just wanted something relaxed and fun. The original venue that we had in mind gave our date away and we just happened to have time to visit Glen Ewin Estate and knew it had to be here.

THE DRESS: Dress was made by Dragana, a dressmaker situated in Sunshine, VIC and she was referred by the fabric store D’italia. I think thing wedding dress shopping was probably the worst part of the wedding, it was just difficult and overwhelming. But I think that’s also a personality thing, I don’t normally wear dresses and I don’t think I particularly like the emphasis on how important the wedding dress was, still don’t really get it.

FAV MOMENT: I think the whole day was a blast! We felt like it went really well. Our vendors (Joel you’re definitely included) were all so good, we were so lucky that everyone was available for our date. The venue really looked after us, we had so much fun at the reception. The tea ceremony was a bit chaotic but which family get together isn’t. Our guests were also fabulous! We’re so lucky to be surrounded by such wonderful people.

TIPS FOR OTHERS: Take it one step at the time, use a checklist online to get a rough idea of what to do in which order and when to book vendors. Most importantly, have fun with it all, things always find a way to work out and even if it doesn’t no one will notice or it will just make it more memorable. Really glad we did the father and daughter dance and the first dance.
