It was a delight to recently decorate a wedding ceremony in the stunning gardens at Stangate House for Adriana and Mark.

There are so many beautiful locations in the Adelaide Hills to hire for a wedding ceremony and Stangate House is certainly no exception. Stangate House is located in the quaint hillside town of Aldgate. Its beautiful four acre property with secret paths, tiered gardens, and the home of one of Adelaide’s most beautiful camellia collections offers so many picturesque photo opportunities.

I always ask the happy couple, what is your Inclement weather Plan B? At Stangate the vintage drawing room provides the perfect back up plan for a small additional fee.

For Adriana and Mark their wedding day was a beautifully stunning Autumn day, not too hot or cold with the sun shining so no Plan B required. Mature trees including a 100 year old oak also offer a wonderful shade solution for weddings depending on the time of the year and position of the sun.

For the decorations Adriana chose a soft Chiffon Wedding Archway, topped with a faux floral mix of roses, hydrangeas and orchids. Matching floral kissing balls on white shepherd hooks lined the aisle. White Americana chairs were laid out in a semi-circle with the magnificent trees as a backdrop and were tied with soft Champagne Organza Bows. A red carpet provided the perfect entrance for the beautiful bride. We have so many decorations that would be perfect for this location, check out our ceremony garden collections on our packages page.

While we were setting I met Daniel, a musician who was also bringing in his equipment and setting up. He was part of a trio hired by Adriana. One of my favourite side benefits is always hearing a band or music testing their equipment. It just gives a small sneak peak of wonderful things to come. I could just imagine the live music filling the natural garden auditorium. We both were musing how wonderful weddings are. Happy people, a celebration of love – it really is a privilege to be a small part in someone’s new beginnings.
