A Tuscan-Inspired Wedding In The Barossa Valley 

Jess and Tyson met through a mutual friend, and their initial impressions of each other were far from perfect. In fact, they both didn’t like each other at all. But as fate would have it, a chance encounter when Tyson accidentally showed up to Jess’ house with some mutual friends, led to a heartfelt conversation, breaking down the walls of misconceptions and paving the way for a beautiful connection. Little did they know, this encounter would mark the beginning of an inseparable bond.

Their relationship, like a whirlwind romance, swiftly transitioned into a business partnership. A seemingly wild idea of opening a healthy baked potato store materialized into “Mr Potato” with the power of trust, intuition, and a shared vision. Despite naysayers, they ventured into the unknown, proving that sometimes the best decisions are made when following your instincts.

The Proposal 

On their 2-year anniversary, Tyson orchestrated a romantic dinner to celebrate their love. Despite Jess suspecting a proposal, the night ended without a ring. But Tyson had another plan up his sleeve. Returning home, he blindfolded Jess, leading her into a breathtaking scene. As the blindfold fell away, she was met with a floor covered in red roses, balloons, candles, and illuminated letters spelling out “Marry me.” In that moment, surrounded by love and devotion, Jess said yes, marking the beginning of their journey to forever.

Both being born in South Australia, choosing Fino restaurant at Seppeltsfield as their venue was a decision made long before the proposal.
