Wine has always played a part in Amanda and Glenn’s life together. After all, their first encounter was at T’Gallant Winery.
Just like the grapes of a fine vintage wine, Amanda and Glenn’s relationship grew intensely over the following year. Though they had already decided to tie the knot, Glenn planned a formal proposal during peak hour at Melbourne’s busy Flinders Street Station. Amanda was delighted with Glenn’s unique proposal.
When it came to planning the wedding, Amanda and Glenn knew they wanted their special day to represent them both as individuals and as a couple. It was clear from the outset that the most fitting venue for the
ceremony would be a vineyard. With Amanda hailing originally from Melbourne and Glenn from South Australia, the hardest part was deciding where the vineyard’s location should be. Eventually, the couple decided on The Lane Vineyard in the Adelaide Hills.
It was important to Amanda and Glenn to involve their loved ones in the planning of their wedding, which would become a combination of traditional elements and modern touches.
Amanda’s best friend and business partner, Pete, who was a bridesman for the occasion, discovered Amanda’s wedding gown – a silk and lace piece from Linda Gorringe with an ornate Art Deco-style brooch at the bust.
The couple arrived in style in a 1951 Rolls Royce. First welcomed by a bagpiper, then by two young buskers trumpeting Here Comes the Bride
, Glenn and Amanda finally exchanged vows at the highest point of The Lane Vineyard, with 360-degree views of the vines.
At the reception, Amanda and Glenn enjoyed an evening of touching speeches from their loved ones, followed by dancing. And, instead of a traditional cake, the couple opted for a four-tier cheese platter featuring Italian and French cheeses served with port.
