The Manor Basket Range Wedding – Lisandra & Andrew
We are pretty exicited to share the enchanting love story of Lisandra and Andrew as they tied the knot at the magnificent Manor in Basket Range, Adelaide Hills. Their Manor Basket Range wedding was truly a fairytale come to life, and I can’t wait to take you on this delightful journey filled with love, laughter, and a touch of nerdy charm!
A medieval castle with a touch of modern elegance – that’s the Manor in Basket Range for you! This breathtaking wedding venue set the stage for Lisandra’s bridal preparations, and it was nothing short of magical. As I entered the main keep of the castle, I found Lisandra surrounded by her wonderful bridesmaids, all giggles and excitement.
Lisandra looked absolutely radiant as she got ready for her big day. Her gown was a vision of lace and tulle, making her look like a princess straight out of a storybook. But what really made her preparations special were the customs they incorporated from the Nordic Astaru traditions. Offering mead and having a wedding sword added a unique and playful touch, making it an experience to remember for everyone involved!
Andrew, and his gang of groomsmen were being prepared in one of the far rooms of the hotel area. The atmosphere in their room was full of camaraderie with a healthy dose of nerdiness. With references to Warhammer 40k and Dragon Ball Z flying around, it was clear that these guys knew how to have a good time!
As a fellow Warhammer 40k enthusiast, I couldn’t help but join in the fun (and secretly wish they’d give me some pro tips on the game!). Andrew looked dapper in his suit, and his excitement was palpable as he eagerly awaited the moment he would see his beautiful bride walking down the aisle.
The Manor Basket Range Wedding Ceremony
Their ceremony took place in front of the main castle keep, and it was an awe-inspiring sight. The love between Lisandra and Andrew was so evident as they exchanged their heartfelt vows in the presence of their closest family and friends.
Their ceremony included numerous, meaningful moments, including a welcome to country performed by a member of the family, the bridal party being lead by Andrew’s best man – (who really took his job seriously!), the offering of mead and a hand fasting ceremony.
Even after covering numerous weddings at the Manor, this was the first time the ceremony took place not in front of the little chapel, and it was a refreshing change! The grand castle provided a majestic backdrop that elevated the entire experience to a whole new level of romance.
After the heartwarming ceremony and a round of group photos, it was time for some glamour shots! We took full advantage of the castle grounds, and the bridal party was an absolute blast to work with. They were all game for some fun and adventurous poses, and the photos turned out to be nothing short of stunning!
The nearby orchard and gardens added a touch of natural beauty to the pictures. Lisandra and Andrew’s love shone through in every shot, making my job as their photographer an absolute joy.
The Manor Basket Range Wedding Reception
As the sun set, and the stars began to twinkle in the night sky, it was time to head indoors for the reception in the lower reception area of the castle. The rain made a fashionable appearance, but that didn’t dampen the spirits of the guests one bit! It turned into a cozy and intimate affair, perfect for celebrating the newlyweds.
The night was filled with impromptu speeches, laughter, and non-stop dancing. Lisandra and Andrew’s friends and family knew how to have a good time, and the energy was infectious! It was truly a night to remember, and I felt so fortunate to capture every moment of their special day.
Lisandra and Andrew’s Manor Basket Range wedding was nothing short of a dream come true. Love, tradition, and a dash of nerdy charm came together to create an unforgettable celebration. It was an honor to be a part of their journey, and I wish them a lifetime of happiness and adventure together.
