Morgan and Mitch’s Clare Valley Winery Wedding

by | Australia - South Australia, Bride, Inspired Weddings,


Morgan & Mitch

With bouquets of succulents and billy buttons, the vast winery landscape of the Clare Valley, the golden light and a giggling group of guests, today’s gorgeous celebration of Morgan and Mitch is a beautiful one. The couple met at a friend’s 21st birthday and that beautiful relaxed elegance, the feeling that only Australian weddings can embody, is in abundance at their wedding.

Photographs today are by Urban Safari Photography.

The bride and her bridesmaid carried bouquets of succulents and yellow billy buttons created by Robyn May Flowers.

Genna Trolio styled Morgan and her bridesmaid’s makeup.

Mitch and his groomsmen went for a relaxed style, choosing shirts from Country Road and pants from RM Williams. Morgan’s family home acted as a base for the weekend. She explains “My parents own a property not far from Leasingham called Penwortham Station, which is where the boys stayed before the wedding. The next day, Mum and Dad had everyone over for a ‘recovery breakfast’.”

Morgan and Mitch held their wedding at O’Leary Walker Winery, Leasingham. Poppies Flowers & Presence styled the event.

Morgan walked down the aisle to the acoustic version of Maps  – “Yeah Yeahs Yeahs”. Morgan explains “In May 2011, my Dad broke his leg severely in a car accident and spent the rest of the year learning how to walk again, and recovering from the surgery needed to repair the break. For a while there we didn’t think Dad would be able to walk me down the aisle without a walking stick. He worked so hard all year and was able to walk me down the aisle free of any aids. Better yet, we also got to have a lovely father/daughter dance!”

There were two special guests at the ceremony. Morgan remarks “Our dogs, Dudley and Desi, also attended the ceremony. They’re part of the family so we couldn’t leave them at home! They were also on the front of our invitations – Kate, who designed our invitations, had an artist she found on Etsy draw a ‘family portrait’ of the four of us. We’ve got a print of that framed at home now.” Rebecca Wilson performed the ceremony.

Morgan describes the wedding as “Original and unique with loads of fun and dancing!”

Morgan and her bridesmaid wore gowns from Betrothed. Morgan added shoes from Miss Gladys Sym Choon  and jewels from Miss Martini while her bridesmaid wore shoes from Raymond Poulton.

The first dance was met with rousing applause. Morgan explains “We danced to “The Girl” by City and Colour – the lyrics are so sweet and we both love the song. The first part of the song is slow and then it speeds up in the middle, so we got our guests up on the dance floor with us.”

Poppies Flowers & Presence  provided the styling and hire creating break out spots for guests and filling pots and vintage bottles with blooms.

Of their photographer, Morgan says “She was wonderful! I know Kate through her sister – she got some amazing shots and is very original. She also set up a photo booth for us which everyone loved. She made a slideshow of the photo booth photos after the wedding which we’ve watched so many times.”


In lieu of a traditional cake, the couple chose a cheese cake from Mercarto .

The reception was decorated with vintage bottles, suitcases and treats.

Morgan and Mitch had a few special touches to make the reception fun and different for their guests. Morgan explains, “The “cheese cake” was a bit different, and the photo booth was a great way to get pictures of all our guests. We also had bocce set up on the lawn outside.” Kate from Urban Safari Photography set up a photo booth inside for the wedding guests.

    You really make it appear really easy along with your presentation but I
    find this matter to be really one thing which I feel I’d by no means understand.

    It kind of feels too complex and extremely vast for me.
    I’m looking forward to your subsequent post, I will attempt to get the grasp of
