Brooke & Troy’s Wedding @ Stockade Botanic Gardens & Semaphore Palais

Brooke & Troy were the maid of honor and best man in the third wedding I ever photographed as Joel C Photography. We gelled well in front of and behind the camera on that day and not long after they placed their faith in me to capture their wedding day photos. That was 18 months before their wedding! Thanks so much for trusting me: I hope you enjoy your photos, it was a great pleasure to be there Brooke and Troy!

Brooke and Troy have an interesting relationship. Just when we started taking photos I remember Brooke turning to Troy and saying “Now don’t be a dickhead!” And to be honest my challenge while photographing Brooke and Troy was the capture the brief sweet moments they shared between the goofing off and banter :D. The bridal party weren’t much better – for any of you reading this: My name is Joel; not Jimbo or Jack 😀 But in all honesty it was a really fun day and Brooke and Troy have lovely friends and family.

After a fiasco with the Adelaide City Council not allowing Brooke & Troy to hold their wedding at Rymill Park in Adelaide’s east, they found Stockade Botanical Gardens for their ceremony. The photographs taken at the jetty are from Semaphore Beach – near The Palais (where the reception was held).

One of the beautiful things about weddings is they are an opportunity for family and friends to reunite. It was lovely to see family coming from all around Autralia to celebrate Brooke and Troy’s commitment to each other.

Little-known fact: Just after Troy proposed to Brooke, they slow danced to “Elderly Woman Behind the Counter in a Small Town” by Pearl Jam, and this became their first dance. Thank for being a wicked couple, we wish you all the best in married life and for your honeymoon. (in the Maldives?)
