Cindy unveils Langhorne Creek’s wedding secrets

Foundation member Cindy Westphalen, best known as the nationally acclaimed wedding caterer Cindy’s Classic Gourmet, is behind a special event next month in Langhorne Creek showcasing all the region offers to brides to be.

The Langhorne Creek Wedding Trail, being promoted through Cindy’s Wedding Tourism brand, will be held on Sunday, May 19 and is being billed as “a day of indulgence in food, wine, entertainment and premium regional experiences”.

Guests will validate their complimentary ticket at five venues on the Langhorne Creek Wedding Trail, each showcasing a unique function style, from an industrial winery, tactile barrel shed and tropical oasis, to historic buildings, manicured native gardens and stone cottages.

From 12 noon to 4pm guests are invited into immersive experiences with local suppliers and regional producers at each venue to provide inspiring wedding solutions with tastings, demonstrations, interactive displays and live entertainment.

From 4pm the Afterparty kicks off at Venue 5: Woodburn Homestead with a spectacular helicopter arrival and performance by indie musician, winner of the Most Popular Blues & Roots Award at the 2018 SA Music Awards and 2018 Triple J Unearthed Featured Artist Ollie English.

Cindy has been an Australian Bridal Industry Association award winner regularly since 2001 and also launched the Wedding Girl app in 2011 before apps were really popular.

She fell in love with Langhorne Creek in 2016 when she discovered, purchased and lovingly restored historic Woodburn Homestead, built in 1864 by Matthew Rankine who was one of the earliest European settlers in the area.

Woodburn Homestead is now the home of Cindy’s Classic Gourmet and, having already hosted dozens of weddings and celebrations on her 42-acre property, Cindy is now inviting everyone to fall in love with Langhorne Creek, just like she did.

Guests who validate their tickets at all five venues: Belvidere Winery, Belvidere Memorial Hall, Oasis Gardens, The Winehouse and Woodburn Homestead, are then eligible for the prize draw, announced by Ollie English at 5pm. Prizes include the chance to have your wedding featured in Fleurieu Living Magazine, a subscription to Fleurieu Living Magazine, two Langhorne Creek weekend getaways including accommodation, wine, regional produce and dining, plus generous prizes from a number of wedding suppliers.

After guests try and buy local beer, wine and produce at the venues on the Trail they can bring their gourmet finds and pull up a picnic rug on the Woodburn lawns, bordering the Angas River to be entertained by Ollie English at 4pm and party tunes from DJ Sofie Bozzetti from 5.30pm, with catering and more local beers and wines available.

Langhorne Creek’s history, natural beauty and regional charm will all be showcased by the innovative and dedicated businesses on display on the Langhorne Creek Wedding Trail so gather your bridal party, family and friends, to enjoy a day out in this unique and accessible destination.

Free bookings can be made through Eventbrite.
