Lana and James were married among the spectacular decor of the Spiegeltent at the Adelaide Fringe Festival. This circus-like venue is located in the Garden of Unearthly Delights in Adelaide, South Australia. The best part of day? After the ceremony, they had access to their own private ferris wheel! Take a peek at the rest of the richly colored event.

Emily Davis performs before the ceremony in an adorable bigtop-style structure within a tent.

I am officially in love with the fashion. Lana's dress is from Modcloth!

  1. OH WOW!! This is fantastic I am beyond jealous. Spiegaltent comes to Edinburgh every year for our comedy festival and I have always thought it would make a fab wedding venue. The private ferris wheel just completes it..WOW!! xox

  2. It had never even occurred to me (another Adelaide bride) that you would be able to get married in the Spiegeltent during the fringe. It's so pretty and awesome!

  3. What a fantastic venue to hold a wedding! It must've been an awesome and wonderful day for you both. Congrats and may you share a lifetime of happiness! 🙂

  4. Gosh, thank you. I really am blown away by the wonderful words people have taken the time to write about our wedding. James and I are so thankful, we had one of those magical once in a lifetime days. It still brings a huge smile to my face. Just looking at these photos brings all the warm fuzzy teary joyful thoughts flooding back. xx

  5. ohmigod, you got married in the Spiegeltent at the Garden?! That is the most awesome thing I've ever seen!

    Our little city is always so amazing at Fringe time, and the Garden is the coolest ever venue, love!

  6. I absolutely love all of the fashion! Your dress is gorgeous. Where are the bridesmaid's dresses from? The bridesmaid's dresses are so much like what I've been looking for 🙂

    • Bridesmaid dresses were tricky & to be honest the most difficult part of the entire wedding process. Had resigned myself to the fact that the dresses would be similar in colour but not the same shade but when they arrived they actually were almost the same colour.

      One shoulder dress was bought online from Modcloth. The Lace dress (my favourite) was found instore at Portmans. The last was found online at a Pregnancy clothing website (one bridesmaid was 8 months pregnant).

  7. I am absolutely in love with this wedding!! It completely blew me away! All the bright colors are awesome! When I saw the picture of the Bride & Groom at the alter I melted at her dress and shoes! Everything was just perfect! Congratulations to the very happy couple! =)
