Abbie & Dean @ Merilden Train Station :: Clare Valley Wedding Photography

Abbie & Dean held their wedding in the beautiful Clare Valley. Being from the area, I’m sure they wouldn’t mind being described as a friendly, down-to-earth, country couple. Their friends and family were all extremely friendly also.

The ceremony was held at an abandoned train station and the reception in a farm machinery shed. A risky wedding-style, but despite the unpredictable and sometimes freezing weather, they pulled it off; a fantastic wedding day in beautiful settings.

Just before the ceremony the heavens opened up; and it poured. Fortunately it slowed when Abbie arrived and after the ceremony we hid out in an old barn for a few photos until the rain cleared.

After leaving the train station (in 4wd wedding ute’s), we first headed to the back of a wind farm, which was freakin’ freezing! [It was a wind farm after all.]

We moved on to a Canola field, where the lighting and scenery were beautiful, alas the rain returned after just a few shots. So we went to a hay shed for some portraits and then moved on to the reception – the bridal party riding in the back of the ute’s.The shot of the shoes is taken outside the reception – testament to Abbie’s effort throughout the day.

Congratulations once again Abbie & Dean.

Jo & Trav @ Brice Hill Country Lodge :: Clare Wedding Photography

Jo & Trav. A sweet, genuine couple and loving parents. I had the pleasure of photographing their wedding in the Clare Valley recently.

The day started off like most, with the boys sharing a drink and the girl’s stressing about the make-up artist being late (it happens more often than you’d think!). The ceremony was held on the lawns at Brice Hill Country Club and the bridal party stayed at the clean, modern accommodation the night before. This made it fun to alternate between rooms and photograph the preparations as they actually happened. While the boys struggled with their windsor knots, the girls were figuring out how to tie the lace of Jo’s dress. Both eventually came out looking dashing.

After the ceremony we took some formal family shots on the lawns and then headed to the Riesling trail for some bridal photographs. The session went smoothly, the bridal party were lots of fun. At one point I asked the girls for a ‘cheers’ shot -Chris, one of the bridesmaids, thought I asked for a ‘titty’ shot. Lastly we headed over to Artisan’s Table Wine Bar & Bistro for some final portraits and then detail and entry shots.

Congratulations Jo and Trav, was a beautiful wedding. And thank you for the cakes, they were much appreciated by my wife.

Amy & Nathan @ Sunnybrae Farm :: Adelaide Wedding Photography

Amy and Nathan were one of the first couples to contact me after launching the business and website. So it’d been quite a while since I’d seen them, and they’d had a second daughter since (congratulations).

The ceremony held at Sunnybrae Farm had a laid backed atmosphere and was attended by close friends and family; a really easy group of people to get along with (much like Amy & Nathan). There was laughter when the celebrant told the story of Nathan proposing (I hope you don’t mind it being retold here A & N). Apparently Nathan was holding the ring out for quite some time before Amy noticed, as she was concentrating hard on her x-box game.

Even though A & N said I could leave after some formal photos around the gardens of Sunnybrae, I insisted I’d head to Port Adelaide so we could get a shot of them waving as they sailed away down the Port River on their dolphin cruise reception.

Everything was going to plan; I arrived before the bridal party, had taken some shots of the table settings and the wedding cake with it’s xbox decoration. I was setting up to take some shots of the bridal party in front of the causeway bridge and their limousines, when it began to spit. We got the shots and everyone piled into the cars (including me) as it started to pour. The bridal party was escorted on to the ship from the cars with umbrellas, while I ran around taking as many pictures as I could in torrential rain and dark conditions. As I got the shot of the group waving from the rear of the ship, someone kindly yelled, “You’re crazy, go home!” I complied.

Great day, congratulations once again Amy & Nathan!

Monica & John @ Our Lady of Victories/Stamford Grand, Glenelg :: Adelaide Wedding Photography

Wedding photography from Glenelg, Adelaide Uni, Himeji Gardens and Stamford Grand

Monica & John are a sweet couple with lovely family and great friends. Our Lady of Victories was their Catholic Church of choice, with a traditional ceremony, followed by a large group shot and some family portraits before heading to the city in Jaguar Marks IIs.

We first visited the Himeji Gardens on South Tce, and then headed to the Cloisters at Adelaide University and then uni bridge. All-in-all a hectic but immensely fun day!

Monica & John elected to use a party booth at their reception. It really went off; from kids to seniors, everyone had a ball – stay tuned as I’ll post examples soon.

You may have noticed that I post quite a few more photos to my blog entries than other wedding photographers [or you may not have]. This is because I don’t believe in the old style of displaying just the very best pics of the day; my slogan is “Capturing stories, not just taking pictures”, and I intend to stay true to this motto.
