Jen’s Elopement Wedding Dress

We worked with Jen to create the perfect elopement wedding dress for the intimate wedding she had planned with her love, Adam. These two intended on doing the whole ‘let’s get married’ thing differently, they travelled to Hahndorf in South Australia with their closest family and even helped each other get ready on their special day (I think this might just be an first on the Elvi blog!). The Lane Vineyard provided the stunning backdrop for Jen & Adam’s magical Autumn wedding photos.

“When I first saw a tea length bridal gown by Elvi Design in Hello May magazine I knew that was a style that would suit me and my own style perfectly. Not being a very traditional bride, the thought of going and trying on wedding dresses in store did not appeal to me at all so I went straight to Elvi Design. The initial meeting with Sandra was so easy, she knew exactly what I wanted and even had the exact lace I was after. I loved each step along the way watching my dress come to life and I couldn’t have been any more in love with it. Sandra and Birgitta are an incredible team who know how to make brides feel at ease.”

“One of my favourite parts of our wedding day is the decision we made to spend our morning together getting ready. With no bridal party, we were able to spend our morning together helping each other get dressed, which was such a beautiful way to begin our day. We were able to share in each others excitement on what was our biggest day as a couple to date. With clearly no superstition about not seeing each other before the wedding, we also organised to have our photos taken before the ceremony, along the gorgeous main street of Hahndorf which was lined with incredible autumn trees. Our morning together had been so relaxed and and beautiful and by the time we reached the ceremony and our families we were both so calm and happy and ready to share the rest of the day celebrating with our guests.”

“After initially talking about eloping, as neither of us ever wanted a big wedding, we eventually decided to ‘elope with immediate family’ to one of our favourite places in the Adelaide Hills. We planned a lunch for 16 of our closest family members at a venue where we knew the food and wine was incredible. Adam and I knew from our first lunch date there that we wanted to get married at The Lane Vineyard. Knowing exactly where we wanted to get married took any stress out of trying to find a venue, but also lead to finding all our vendors quite easily as well. Organising a wedding from interstate was initially a little daunting but thankfully The Lane had recommended a few photographers and we are so grateful that we chose Mark Dohring from Bentinmarcs Photography. He is not only an incredible photographer and lovely guy, but ended up being our unofficial wedding planner, recommending our amazing florist, Estee Austin from Austin Bloom, as well as Make-up Artist Kristina Sarah Persichini and Hair Stylist Yovanka Loria. After initial discussions with everyone about our vision for the day, I had complete trust in everyone and couldn’t have been happier with how perfect every aspect of our day was.”
