The love story of Nicole Draper and Luke Snowden began at Faith Lutheran College, Tanunda where they first met during high school and have since spent seven years together.
Nicole describes Luke’s proposal as low key and perfect during a morning walk at Middleton beach.
Their minimal, natural-toned wedding was intimate. The couple marked their life-long commitment with 20 of their immediate family members present, as COVID-19 restrictions forced the pair to heavily reduce their guest list.
Nicole and Luke chose to use vendors they know personally, including catering by Forage Supply Co and O’Leary Walker and live music by Matt and Chelsea Alexander, of Chelsea Grace Music, to celebrate their special day.
The bride wore a Georgie V2 gown by Made with Love Bridal, accompanied by a long-embroidered veil, while the groom wore a linen jacket and navy pants.
Nicole’s cousin, Alana Shannon created the vanilla sponge, with butter cream icing and raspberry filling for the wedding cake.
For Luke, his favourite moment of the day was when he first saw the bride, while photos in the rain before the ceremony was a memorable moment of the day for Nicole.
The couple returned to Nicole’s favourite place, the family beach house in Middleton for their honeymoon.
Nicole is the daughter of Tracy and Guy Draper, of Tanunda, and Luke is the son of Jennifer Snowden of Birdwood and Jeremy & Christine Snowden of Woolbay.
