The Venue

Are you stuck for ideas when it comes to wedding venues? Then why not check out the secret garden Aldinga as an option. This exclusive space is not only available for weddings, but also for other special celebrations. Tucked away on a quiet street, this little venue shouldn’t go unnoticed, as it offers everything you need for a special day.

At the end of the wide gravelled driveway, you’ll find the perfect spot for your ceremony. The perfectly positioned trained grapevine, creates a beautiful archway for any ceremony. You’ll also be protected from any beaming sunlight as you say your I do’s. This area is suited for weddings of around 50 or so guests. Furthermore, the garden has well established trees which also provide a canopy from the summer heat, as well as wind. You can also make use of their indoor space (known as the chapel) incase the weather changes. This area can also be used for the evening reception and offers a rustic theme, incorporating vintage chairs and boho rugs.

Kye & Lauren

We met Kye & Lauren earlier this year via zoom. When their original plans to tie the knot in New Zealand came to a halt due to covid, Kye and Lauren decided to marry at the secret garden Aldinga. Together for 15 years and engaged for five of those years, their wedding day couldn’t have been more perfect. They chose this venue as it was close to home, walking distance in fact, and it was a great second option since their original plans didn’t go ahead.

Getting Ready

Our day started around noon, when we met with Kye and his mates for some quick photographs. Kye was a bit nervous, but after a beer or two, he soon settled. Soon after, we moved on to Lauren and her bridesmaids. Lauren was cool, calm and full of excitement and so was her bride tribe. There is always something fun about being around the girls on the morning of the wedding. As always, time passed by quickly and before we knew it, Lauren was getting into her perfectly tailored wedding dress (which had pockets) and we were all headed to the garden.

The Ceremony

Lauren met her mum at the front of the venue for a quick ‘first look’ moment, which brought tears to her mum’s eyes. These were really beautiful moments to capture and as usual, I got a little teary myself! After the tears were wiped, it was time for Lauren to tie the knot.

While Kye & Lauren’s oldest daughter tried to steal the spotlight, we did eventually make it through the vows, ring exchange and they were finally pronounced husband and wife! Hooray! The ceremony ended with a confetti throw…because is it really a wedding if you don’t have a confetti throw?!

Post Ceremony & Evening

Guests enjoyed mingling with the newly weds as they congratualed and gave them their well wishes. There was opportunity for plenty of group photographs at the secret garden. Later on, we made our way to Port Willunga beach for some couple and bridal party photos. This, might I add is one of the other great things about the location of secret garden Aldinga. If you’re looking for other backdrop options, then the beach is perfect. A great location to take the shoes off and let loose for a while.

As the night progressed, the rest of the evening was well spent listening to speeches from Lauren’s mum, best man and maid of honour. Eventually good food was devoured, thanks to the pizza truck on the night, busting a few dance moves and of course, capturing some fun shots in the photo booth!
