Late in 2020, Denver and Peter married at Glen Lea Homestead, a glorious private homestead tucked away in the Adelaide Hills.
Not the kind to follow trends, Denver and Peter decided that having no bridal party was the way to go, and just keep it simple. After all, the day is really about the two of you, right? We couldn’t agree more.
They held their ceremony in the grove – a beautiful patch of land down in the gully lined with Elm, Plane and Claret Ash trees.
Keeping the evening formalities quite casual, the couple and their guests relaxed on rugs and lounge furniture on the homestead lawns for speeches and thank yous. One very kind gesture during the speeches had us tearing up. Their family presented the couple with an olive tree, and in their honour planted it together. While traditionally olive trees represent peace, perhaps it was a gesture representing life and growth. Whatever the meaning, we think this is just the sweetest idea!
Guests enjoyed a fully vegan feast, courtesy of some of Adelaide’s best vegan food vans – and yes, if you were wondering, you can get vegan donuts!
The traditional grass court was the perfect location for the party to continue well into the night! Set up with naked tipis, suspended rattan lamps and festoon lights draped across the court. As you can see from the photos that everyone had an absolute ball.
