As you embark on the beautiful journey that leads to your wedding day, selecting the perfect venue is a pivotal step in curating the wedding of your dreams. Picture this: a Tuscan-inspired haven, nestled amidst the rolling vineyards of McLaren Vale, where love and nature harmonise in perfect symphony. Allow me to introduce you to a place that embodies this idyllic vision – Coriole Vineyards.
For couples seeking an enchanting backdrop that seamlessly blends rustic elegance with natural splendour, look no further than Coriole. As an experienced wedding photographer and videographer, I understand the significance of a venue that not only captures the essence of your story but also provides an awe-inspiring canvas to frame your cherished moments.
Watch Elly and Jason’s day unfold and discover why this Tuscan-inspired gem is the quintessential choice for couples who yearn for a wedding that transcends the ordinary.
Nestled in the hillside, facing south with panoramic views extending to the distant Willunga Hills and the iconic South Australian coastline to the west, Coriole basks in an abundance of natural light with a Tuscan backdrop of rolling vineyards that’ll have you feeling like you’ve flown to Italy minus the jetlag. This unique orientation of Coriole Vineyards ensures that the light lingers in the sky until the sun completely disappears below the horizon. This grants us wedding photographers and videographers an extended window of sunset portrait opportunities. In contrast, venues with an east-facing aspect might see the light diminish earlier in the day, limiting the available shooting time.
Coriole Vineyards offers the added advantage of on-site accommodation in the charming homestead for the nights enveloping the wedding. This means you’ll have a serene space to prepare for the special day, and a haven to retreat to as newlyweds. The pizza oven and outdoor kitchen in the courtyard adds an enticing touch, making it easy to envision a post-wedding recovery, complete with wood-fired pizzas and refreshing drinks while basking in the warm sun overlooking McLaren Vale.
“Coriole Vineyard’s rustic, beautiful setting is one of fairytales and lifelong memories. With multiple stunning locations on site, from the intimate courtyard setting to the sprawling lawns, the cottage gardens to the 1800s homestead, Coriole has the perfect backdrop for your wedding. We are here to help you create the day of your dreams and wedding coordinator Genevieve is on hand to assist with the planning and delivery of your special day.” Read more about Coriole Vineyards wedding packages here.
And if you’re looking for a wedding videographer or photographer to capture your day, I’d love to hear from you.
Elly and Jason’s wedding day was nothing short of a dream. Bubbly and effervescent Prosecco in human form, Elly had a Cheshire-cat smile every second of the day, except for the handful of moments where Jason’s sweetness brought a tear to her gleaming eyes. Elly’s attention to detail and styling elements were all on point. Paired with Coriole Vineyards’ food styling to dress the reception setup, it watch a match made in heaven.
