Seppeltsfield winery was Jemma and Andrew’s choice of locations to have their wedding ceremony and reception. Being such a historic and elegant location we looked forward to the day with excitement. From the palm tree lined roads leading up to the winery to the many buildings dating back to the 1800s this location always takes one back to an era in another time and space.
A mere short distance away from the venue, in the town of Tanunda, Jemma and Andrew and their bridal party got ready for the day. Jemma had family and friends attending this auspicious day from interstate as well as overseas. This made is so much more special for her. Even more special was her close friend flying in all the way from Zimbabwe to be Jemma’s maid of honour. Someone Jemma had a very close bond with, having grown up together since she was very little.
Andrew and Jemma were work colleagues with Andrew in charge of the department Jemma worked in. Their initial encounters had been anything but romantic. More work related and Andrew playing the role of typical boss, pointing Jemma out whenever she did not follow procedures. But, in a strange way, these encounters turned towards a friendship which gradually blossomed into a romance. The rest is history as the saying goes.
Andrew is a very calm and collected person with a fabulous sense of humour. It was quite clear this was one of (out of many) Andrew’s qualities Jemma saw and fell in love with. Jemma’s personality was no different and the two complimented each other in many ways.
As everyone in attendance awaited eagerly, the ceremony commenced with Andrew walking down the aisle with his mother. The open-air ceremony setting was surrounded by the many historic buildings that once were a daily hive of activity from people going about in their efforts to making Seppeltsfield winery to what it is today.
As Andrew joined his groomsmen and gazed his eyes with anticipation of seeing his gorgeous bride for the first time, Jemma walked the cobble-stoned path towards the altar. Affectionately holding onto her father’s arm this was indeed a very special moment for father and daughter. The walk was a good distance to the altar and with every step, as his bride got closer, Andrew’s gentle smile grew with a radiance of affection.
As Jemma and Andrew joined hands, exchanged vows and rings, bound together by their love for each other, the most important chapter in their lives had started.
