As the saying goes, home is where the heart is, and Sarah and Callum knew that ‘home’ was where they wanted to join their hearts forever. It was a busy weekend for me, I was at Mount Lofty House on Saturday for a wedding, before jumping on a plane back to Lincoln, picking up my car, and heading less than 100km up the road to meet with Sarah for her wedding on Sunday of the long weekend. It was hot – but not as hot as it was supposed to be thanks to the cloud cover (brilliant for photos!) and barely a breeze – a completely opposite to the day that was to follow!
Callum and Sarah had made their wedding a real family affair, included in their bridal party were members of their family, brothers were driving the wedding cars, they were getting married and celebrating their wedding reception in the places they have always called home, – Karkoo and Cummins, and Callum’s parents business –Five Loaves Bakery (best vanilla slice there is!) filling the dessert bar with their gorgeous treats – and they had everyone’s mouths watering during the week when sharing pictures on Facebook!
Sarah and Callum had decided that they didn’t want to name a specific Maid of Honour or Best Man – everyone in their bridal party was equally important to them as each other. They wanted a relaxed wedding and didn’t pick a theme as such. “Callum and I are both pretty relaxed people and we wanted to reflect this. We also wanted something quite traditional. I guess you could say the overall theme was rustic elegance’. And elegant it was. Charcoal grey was the underlying colour of the day, with details such as doilies, glass jars and babies breath flowers adding a soft touch to the theme. “Pinterest has been a huge resource for us! We got so many ideas from there! Also looking through your (Jade Norwood’s) photos of other weddings – we got a few good ideas from them too! It’s really just important to us that our guests have a good time.” And I’m pretty sure there wasn’t anyone not laughing when the MC put together a story including asking Sarah and Callum to join hands with Callums and top and saying “that it will be the last time Callum has the upper hand” but not to finish there, locking them together with hand cuffs… hahahah
Married in the local Church, they declared their eternal love in front of their family and friends wearing gigantic smiles and looking like they could explode with happiness. “We are both really looking forward to first seeing each other at the Church” Sarah had told us. They’ll be heading away to Kangaroo Island for a few days of honeymooning, before returning back to life in Adelaide where they’ve ben working and studying for the past few years. Sarah’s mum Janice was very helpful in the wedding planning process given that Sarah and Callum were planning it from so far away, and with her along for the ride, even choosing THE dress was easy! “Mum and I had a spare hour or 2 while she was over visiting one weekend, so we thought we would go and just start looking. It was one of the first dresses I tried on. We did go and have more of a look around elsewhere, but I kept coming back to this one – it was very ‘me.’ Something nice and simple, with beautiful lace detailing.” It so was ‘Sarah’ and she looked beautiful.
Congratulations Sarah + Callum, it was such an honour to be part of your special day!
