Married at the quaint local church, followed by afternoon canapes & refreshments on the lush lawn of Cloverdel, a private estate in Woodend, Pip & Adam had everything from rain, rainbows & sunshine on their wedding day.
The groom himself is a wine maker & chef, so great food & wine was at the top of the list for Pip & Adam on their wedding day. So much thought & passion went into every little detail to make sure their guests had a beautiful evening indulging in culinary delights.
'Adam and I chose our favourite food to serve. We also wanted to incorporate our own olive's & olive oil off our property and Adam's Salami which is made using 9litres of his Syrahmi wine.' Says Pip.
Beautifully styled by the bride herself - Pip Danaher, the reception marquee looked absolutely incredible & set the perfect scene for a night of food, wine & dancing!
Chef Doug Elder from Brown Brothers, who recently received a chefs hat, lead the talented team from Artistic catering in creating their menu and meals. (see food & drinks menu below)
Renee (and her incredibly beautiful voice) from Tobi Music entertained guests throughout the ceremony, canapés and then joined the White Tree band for the reception.
Pip's gorgeous gown was by Cappellazzo Couture.
