These wedding venue ‘love listers’ aren’t a review, but they do include a few of my feelings and thoughts based on my experience over the past 15 years as a wedding photographer. These venues are not paying or asking to be on my website, or necessarily referring my services (although I think some do by choice) – I’ve included these venues because I have seen them consistently provide exceptional wedding day experiences to my couples.
If you are looking at a venue not listed, it doesn’t mean I’ve not worked there or that I don’t consider it excellent, it may just be that I’ve not managed to add it yet. Feel free to quiz me about any wedding venue you’re considering, just get in touch here.
Mount Lofty House – 5 star location, cuisine and views
Mount Lofty House is an Iconic, Boutique 5 star hotel in the Adelaide Hills, just 15 minutes from the Adelaide CBD. Specialising in stunning wedding receptions, unique conference retreats, exquisite day spa, fine dining and superior accommodation experiences. Mount Lofty House is now regarded as one of Australia’s premier Wedding Venues and Hotel experiences. The array of food and beverage services is second to none and is the key focus for excellence throughout this magnificent, historic estate
Wedding photographers are pretty fortunate, and while we might have to work most weekends, we have some pretty tasty meals come our way at wedding receptions. With a past life in the hospitality industry I appreciate the difficulty that comes with serving restaurant quality service and meals to 80+ people in short timeframes. With more than a decade of shooting weddings and the resulting ‘dinner for one’ I’ve seen the best…and the worst. Mt Lofty House has been one of a handful of wedding venues who have consistently served up really delicious, hot fresh meals.
From a wedding venue perspective Mount Lofty House offers grand vistas, plentiful settings and backdrops for photography and ceremony location options. The service is bang-on, the menu is always exceptional and they make great use of locally sourced produce.
Accommodation Options a big plus
Having the option for couples and guests to stay before and after the wedding either on-site or in one of the nearby cottages is a real plus, as is being just a 15 minute Uber from the city. With the recent addition of the SequoiaSuites for those who really want to splash out there’s something to cater for every taste and most budgets.
