REAL WEDDING: Charleigh + James, Hanrahan Vineyard

Charleigh + James, Hanrahan Vineyards

Why we chose the venue?

"We chose to have our wedding at Hanrahan Vineyards because the venue is absolutely stunning. We didn't want to have a formal sit down wedding where everyone stays in their spots. Hanrahan gave us a wonderful laid back venue which we could make our own".

"We started the day off with a gorgeous cheese platter supplied by Hanrahan using local produce while we had some photos taken. The main course was a selection of hot and cold finger food. We had mini chicken burgers, beetroot arancini, fish and chip cones, prawn fritters - more than enough food for everyone. They catered for all dietary requirements and went out of their way to make sure James and had something in our bellies! After the catering finished we had an ice cream cart with 4 different flavours!! We also had donuts, a small lolly bar and cake! Oh and a caricaturist to capture our guests!!! "

"We really wanted to cater for all tastes"!

Tips for couples knee-deep in the wedding planning adventure?

"My top tip for couples in the planning stage is to be decisive. If it fits in your budget and you love it then get it! Don't stress too much over the little things.

"Over a year I bought 3 wedding dresses! And the funny thing?! The dress I chose in the end, was the dress I was in love with from the beginning but didn't want to spend the money on".

Venue Showstoppers

 "Bev, Paul and all the staff there are fantastic and did everything they could to make our day perfect".

The Best Bits..

Our favourite part of the day was after all the photos were finished we could go and mingle with our guests. The energy was amazing. The whole day was great from start to finish, everyone had a great time, the food was beautiful to match the fantastic wine and the people that we care about the most were there to help us celebrate.
