REAL WEDDING: Nadia + Stuart – Adams Peak Country Estate & The Barn
Does a moody wedding with gorgeous big clouds sound all kinds of romantic to you? Not just us? In that case, you might want to take a look at this real wedding.
Words by Melany Mashman

There are a trillion reasons to scroll on and check out the rest of this moody and beautiful NSW wedding. There’s so much we love about this wedding, including the seriously drool-worthy dessert bar, and the fact that they chose Adams Peak Country Estate & The Barn for their big day. Oh, and not to mention they had favourites Fiona and Bobby Photography behind the lens. The only thing we can fault is that we weren’t invited.

What was it about your wedding venue that made you choose it?

We love the Hunter Region, and we fell in love with Adams Peak the first time we saw it. We just knew straight away is was the right place.

Now that you’re married, what’s your best piece of wedding-planning advice you can share?

If you’re paying for the wedding yourself, try to pay for as much as you can upfront. And have your wedding on a week day. It can save you thousands.

If you had your time again, is there anything you’d do differently?

We would not change anything about the day. It was perfect. But, as a bride speaking, I would have gone with a different wedding dress.

Finish these sentences: My partner is…

Crumb Bum.

The best thing we did at our wedding was…


The best thing we splurged on was…

Alcohol and fun.

We saved on…

Wedding Stationary and weekday wedding.
