Amanda Carmichael and Adam Plane were married on March 12 at The Barns of Freeling in front of 100 guests. The choice of location was a given for Amanda and Adam with Amanda growing up in Freeling. She really never would have thought she would get married here! Especially in the beautifully restored Barns, which suited their nod to a rustic style wedding.
Amanda is daughter of Ian and Lynette Carmichael of Freeling and Adam is son of Colin and Joy Plane (deceased) of Price.
For something a little different the couple had a lunch time wedding, allowing their two children to be involved in the entire day. Guests were treated to catering by Auburn Smoke House Catering servicing a stand-up cocktail inspired menu.
The couple kept the theme of the day simple and rustic, showcasing the amazing features of the venue and the floral arrangements by Daisy Lane Flowers.
“We had so many wonderful comments throughout the day towards the venue and beautiful flowers, Amanda said.
A seven and nine inch chocolate mud cake was created by Tam’s Sweet Cakery. It was finished with a semi naked vanilla bean icing and a chunky milk chocolate ganache dip.
When planning the wedding, Amanda was mindful to utilise as many local vendors.
“We are lucky enough to know many of our vendors either personally or have worked with them before professionally. This really helped with the planning and made the day run smoothly,” Amanda added.
The couple first met after Amanda moved to the Yorke Peninsula for work. After a daylong initial date, Amanda and Adam both knew that there was a strong connection, understanding and having similar values and outlooks on life.
It was the start of something special.
Amanda and Adam have been together for five years and during this time they have had two children and share a dog together.
It was after the birth of their first child, Isobel, that the couple had Amanda’s grandmothers’ engagement ring remodelled.
Without Amanda knowing, Adam had collected the ring and carried it in his pocket the entire weekend during an overnight stay in Adelaide.
It wasn’t until Sunday night in their lounge room that Adam said, “I have something for you.”
“We rang my dad soon after to let him know,” said Amanda.
“Mum was relieved as Adam had shown her the ring earlier in the weekend. She had been waiting in anticipation.”
Whilst there were so many favourite memories from the day, their two children Isobel and Josie stole the show.
“I think once we had said our nuptials, we were greeted by our girls and walked down the aisle back up to The Barns. We were truly happy, no longer nervous, no longer concerned how the day would go. Just happy,” Amanda said.
