Natasha & Chardon had an Adelaide destination wedding on Chardon's parents property just outside of Oakbank in the Adelaide Hills. A lovely old homestead with a carefully tended cottage garden for the ceremony, followed by a large marquee reception for one hundred guests on the rolling lawns. They wanted their wedding to have a very easy-going vibe so they decided to forgo the formal sit-down affair in favour of food trucks for dinner and drinks. Although there wasn't a set colour-scheme for this wedding, the bride & groom designed a rustic country style for their décor that was both simple and elegant, and fitted in perfectly with the surroundings.
Natasha & Chardon met at work where Chardon is a pilot and Natasha a flight attendant. I know, it's just like a classic romantic movie and I love it! They started talking with each other so much on that first meeting that they almost missed their shift, and they've been together ever since.
As you'd expect, the location of the proposal was another destination and Chardon went down on one knee at a winery during a weekend getaway in Hobart. I'm told Natasha had no idea that this was going to happen and had to be prompted several times before spotting her engagement ring amongst a plate of oysters.
A highlight of the wedding day included Griffin, the happy couple's labradoodle, who had flown down especially to see his Mum & Dad get married and at the ceremony he was the cutest ring-bearer you've ever seen. Afterward, while the bridal party set out to take photos, the guests were served drinks & canapes, and were entertained with live music and lawn games including a giant game of Connect 4 that was particularly popular with the smaller guests in the crowd.
Later on, the bridal party were announced into the marquee to much fanfare and food truck service began with a choice of wood-oven pizza or german food. It went down very well with guests and there was a real festival atmosphere as the sun went down and strings of festoon lighting lit up the scene.
Guests were keen to hit the dance floor after dinner, and the party kicked off with a traditional Greek Zorba dance, enthusiastically led by Natasha's YiaYia who had flown from Greece to celebrate her granddaughter's marriage.
