elise & simon


It was the perfect spring day here in the Clare Valley when Elise and Simon were set to say their vows. Nestled among the gum trees, you could feel the love in the air.

The country theme flowed through every part of this gorgeous wedding. From the girls getting ready in a historical local cottage, to dancing the night away in the local showground main pavillion, nothing was missed.

The day was very relaxed which matched the personality of the stunning bride. Meanwhile, Simon got a litle distracted getting the ceremony location prepared at the Clare Showgrounds. So much so, that he nearly forgot he had to get home to get ready! In loving memory of her close friend Simone Montgomerie, Elise wore a purple ribbon on her gown.

Hessian and lace transformed the normally drab main pavillion into the perfect wedding reception venue to celebrate with their closest family and friends.
