Mandy & Cody’s Elegant Mclaren Vale Wedding, Beresford Estate

February 17, 2024

After almost 5 years together, Mandy & Cody tied the knot at the stunning Beresford Estate, a vineyard located in Adelaide’s wine region of Mclaren Vale. I was lucky enough to be able to fly over from Sydney for the weekend, and the Adelaide spring weather really turned it on. It was a day filled with non-stop laughs and so much fun, that even the bride herself almost didn’t make it to her first dance. Mandy relates, “When Cody and I went to practice our first dance, we got through about 30 seconds of it and Cody knew that he was on his own.”

THE DRESS: “It took me about one month to find my dress. My cousin had wedding dress remorse and was looking for a dress 2 years post her wedding and highly recommended Kyha. I happened to have my graduation in Victoria in December and thought why not? And as with finding your partner, the same goes for your dress – you know when you know, it was the one!”

THE PROPOSAL: “Cody recreated our first date. We ordered the same ice cream, wore the same outfits and sat on the same patch of grass and spoke about our relationship over the last 3.5 years and then he got down on one knee!”

THE VENUE: “We saw about 4 different venues. We loved the view at Beresford and it gave us the atmosphere that we were looking for. We also wanted the wedding to be elegant and classy.”

THE MEANING OF MARRIAGE: “Cody and I have always felt strongly about being faithful to each other, having respect for each other, listening to each other and being committed to finding solutions together – we think that’s what a relationship is whether it’s bound by marriage or not!”
