Zena & Chris transformed Ten22 into a James Bond extravaganza for Chris' 30th birthday celebration. With poker tables, Vesper Martinis and all the props to boot, Chris's 30th Birthday was celebrated in true style as guests arrived in full Bond themed costumes. It was a fantastic night and showcases the versatility of our venue. We love that every event takes on a different feel and reflects such personality and individuality of each of our clients and their events. Such a beautiful couple and it was a pleasure working with them to create such a memorable event. "Ten22 is the most beautiful venue! We celebrated my husbands 30th birthday party there and it was absolutely perfect. I would like to thank Natalie, David, Fran and the team at Ten22 for creating the most magical night!!!" Zena Saunders.
It was great to have the Qantas epiQure event for Adelaide at Ten22 Boutique Venue. "An evening of delectable discovery combining a love of gastronomic craft, from wine-making and premium liquor distilling to the culinary trend of gourmet mini burgers." Qantas epiQure. It was a fanstastic event for more than 100 of Qantas frequent flyers and VIP'S where on arrival they received a complimentary Riedel Overture Magnum tasting glass. The room was filled with much chatter and laughter as guests sampled the finest wines and ate house made gourmet sliders till they could fit no more. We love that our space can be transformed to reflect the personality and theme of every event showcasing its individuality. We loved working with the Qantas staff and welcome them in our space anytime.

How did you meet?
Chris and I met through his sister kirstie (maid of honour) asI went to school with her. she found out we both thought each other was cute and she set us up on a movie date.
How did Chris propose?
Chris proposed to me while we were holidaying in New Zealand. we were staying at a hotel in Queenstown over looking the Remarkables when he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. the date was 11.12.13. quite an easy date to remember.
What made you choose TEN22 BOUTIQUE VENUE?
We had a look at a few places around Adelaide but when we saw the inside of Ten22 we loved it. It suited our relaxed vintage wedding to a tee.
What menu did you choose & why?
We chose to have the shared plates menu at our wedding as we liked the idea of people having to talk to each other to pass the plate around. kind of like a family style dinner.
What did you love most about Ten22?
We just loved the vintage style of the place and the relaxed but sophisticated feel it had. we also liked that is was almost a blank canvas a we could set the place up as we liked. We went for a relaxed, vintage look with a pop of red.
Your dress & bridesmaids dresses?
My wedding dress was from Princess collection and I brought it within a month of getting engaged. I fell in love with it as soon as I tried it on. my dress had an illusion neckline, with lace and a little beading, with a tulle skirt. The girls bridesmaid dresses were from Jenny and Gerrys and were a strapless raspberry red colour.
How did you come up with your styling ideas and what wedding suppliers helped you create your unique style?
I looked through a lot of bridal magazines and went to quite a few different wedding expos to look for styles and ideas I liked. I new I wanted a vintage inspired wedding so that made it easier to come up with styles I liked. we used A Moment in Time wedding planning, Yasmin was a lot of help. She did everything from making our invitations to setting up our ceremony and reception I'd highly recommened them to anyone else who is planning a wedding.
Where did you honeymoon?
Chris and I are off on Monday (6.4.15) to Europe on a contiki tour for 18nights. we are going to be visiting about 12 different countries all up.
