A Chinese elm tree at Anlaby Station, near Kapunda set the scene for the special day of Felicia Wedding and Nick Murray.
The couple, who are both registered nurses, first met at a set up morning tea in 2016 which was arranged by one of Felicia’s colleagues and Nick’s dad, Phil an anaesthetist.
The couple instantly had a connection and it was love at first sight.
Nick popped the question in July, 2019 during a holiday to Kangaroo Island.
The Southern Ocean Lodge set the scene one evening during their stay, when after a massage, Felicia walked over to a fire where there were canapes and champagne and Nick dressed in a suit.
He stood up with one hand behind his back, gave a speech before kneeling on one knee and asking for Felicia’s hand in marriage.
Just over 100 guests celebrated the marriage of Felicia and Nick with a reception at the Clydesdale Pavilion at Anlaby Station.
The wedding was catered for by Handmade Catering and a three tier white chocolate and raspberry mud cake, made by Dana from Make it Yours Cakes and Cupcakes was served.
Inspired by an historic, rustic elegance, Anlaby Station also had a special connection for Felicia.
“My great-grandmother, Ena Marie Schwerdt (nee Callier) grew up in a small stone cottage on the property at Anlaby Station and went to school at nearby Tarnma,” said Felicia.
“She had 12 children and lived to the age of 97. I knew her up until I was 10 years old and I have fond memories of her. She was such an inspiration to me and her family. She is someone that I always aspire to.”
The couple enjoyed a honeymoon to Cairns, Daintree Rainforest and Hamilton Island.
Felicia’s attendees were Sarah Martinez, Nicole Wedding and Jessica Trollope while Nick’s attendees were Sam Tomkins, Hamish Scanlon and Jesse Francis.
Felicia is the daughter of Meredith and Brian Wedding, of Pinkerton Plains and Nick is the son of Jill and Phil Murray, of Hazelwood Park.
