Darlene & Pete @ The Palais, Semaphore :: Adelaide Wedding Photography

Darlene and Pete held their wedding on the deck at The Palais, Semaphore – 25mins from Adelaide. It was a relatively relaxed wedding, a brief sunset ceremony, followed by a cocktail reception. Both Darlene and Pete enjoy keeping fit – extremely fit! – so many of the guests were are also quite bulky. But like the wedding couple, the guests were warm and fun and the dance floor was rarely empty.

There wasn’t much time to take photos between the ceremony and the reception, and it was very dark – so we headed to the Semaphore Jetty, only 5 minutes walk away.

Thank you for inviting me to shoot your wedding Darlene & Pete!

Darlene & Pete :: Semaphore Wedding :: Preview

Just yesterday I was fortunate to cover the wedding of a world champion (Darlene), and Pete. Darlene & Pete met online, having the common interest of body building. Since meeting, Darlene has pursued her dreams and recently won the Arnold Classic (see here). Darlene is also a fitness instructor and her website is located here. Here’s one pic from the night; full post due next week!

The ceremony and reception were held on the deck at the Palais, however this photo was taken at the Semaphore Jetty. Thanks for the great night Pete & Darlene, look forward to sharing more photos and then meeting again for the official hand-over of files.

Al-Ru Farm Wedding Photography :: 2010 Revisited

Belinda & Josh held their wedding ceremony at Glen Ewin Estate. We then traveled to Al-Ru Farm for some cool outdoor shots. Before we left, I was thinking, “Where could possibly be better than the grounds and buildings of Glen Ewin Estate for wedding photography?” But on arrival I saw why they chose Al-Ru Farm. I don’t think it’s fair to say it’s better spot for wedding photography, but depending on the style of photography you’re after, it’s a fantastic location. I’m not sure of its history, but it has a diversity of gardens in a fairly small area (a short walk from one location to the next). For more info you might like to check out www.ruthirving.com.au

Well-bred Winery Wedding at Woodstock :: 2010 Revisited

Sione and Steve held their ceremony and reception at Woodstock Winery near McLaren Vale. The wedding ceremony was on the lawns and we took photos around the gardens and vineyards and in the barrel room. They are a great couple with a lot of love, Steve really knows how to make Sione laugh.

McLaren Vale is fantastic location for wedding photography near Adelaide – on par with the Barossa Valley in terms of wineries, but with the added bonus of beaches close by and the lower Adelaide Hills.

Love in the Clare Valley :: Adelaide Wedding Photography

Tim & Helen were the kind of couple that shined in the loving-look department. They genuinely sank into each others eyes, and it made for great wedding photography. They held there wedding in the Clare Valley and we traveled little-known places around Sevenhill that were special to them. The ceremony was held at Pikes Winery, a decent location for ceremonies as it has a nice lawned area, old brick walls and buildings to use as backdrops and [of course] some vineyards.

Yalumba Wedding :: Adelaide Wedding Photography

Yalumba is a great spot for wedding photography. The place is full of small gardens, old walls, wine barrels, monuments and buildings. And they make great wine and food. Only 1.5-2 hours north of Adelaide, its not too far out of the way either.

Daniel and Louise chose to share their day here as their father has worked at the winery for over 20 years. He even has a ‘signature’ series wine (which was of course served at the reception). They came back from London to hold their wedding at home, and guests came from all over Australia to share in their special day.

Later in the evening whilst exploring old wine tanks that have been renovated to become awesome private dining rooms, I stepped through a door that went into a tunnel. The tunnel was lit by white lights to the sides, and a staircase with rocks was at the end around 10m away. “Cool place to photograph,” I thought. I took 2 pictures and the door slammed shut behind me! It automatically locked, and had no door handle. I followed the tunnel and climbed the stairs, and came out on Yaumba’s factory floor, surrounded by machinery and thousands of bottles of wine. I found a fire escape and was free. I admired the moon, walked around buildings lost for 5 minutes before finding the reception hall again.
