I don't even know where to start with this wedding! Jarrad and Emily, whilst being one of the most down to earth couples i've come across, they’ve managed to have one of the most extravagantly styled weddings! From the rustic beaded bohemian style chandeliers hanging above my head inside their perfectly decorated outdoor marquee, to the quirky quaint coffee and cannoli cart that sat under the willow tree next to their garden ceremony. This was a perfect representation of what was two worlds beautifully colliding. A true reflection of their personalities, extremely grounded and humble yet extremely elegant and stylish!
On my drive out to Al Ru Farm, I was already prepared for this to be one of ‘those’ weddings where I’d feel like I was a guest and not a vendor due to the excitement that surrounded Emily and Jarrad's day. This pre-wedding excitement began with their mega line up of lovely industry friends booked to be there! In the warm March sun there were appearances from the photography legend himself Daniel Evans & his equally amazing photo lord Matthew Dwyer, the coolest wedding DJ out there, miss Morgen Wynn, the ever so beautiful Laura Brook celebrant, and a breathtaking set up from the team at Hygge Studio & White Marquee. Emily and Jarrad, after 9 years I am so pleased that you two, the sweetest high school sweethearts in the world, have finally made your love official, nothing makes me happier than the fact that you two found each other and the fact that I was able to be there to capture every lovely part about you two and your amazing families!
On the warm river banks at Wigley Flat under the shade of the river red gums. Located upon the breathtaking grounds of the lush privately owned Akuna Station, I stood and waited for Groom, Jock McNeil to arrive. A ski boat caught my eye, five men in suits jumped out of the boat as it pulled up next to the ceremony set up. I thought this was cool, but things got a whole lot cooler after this. From popping bottles on cliff tops, dancing under the clear night stars, avoiding getting COVID and FINALLY seeing love birds, Jock and Lauren, unite in marriage after 11 years together.. what a day.
Jock and Sharmie, for what was now the last wedding of this season, watching you two finally get married made it all worth it! We could hug, we could dance, we could connect with family and loved ones. Your wedding is one I'll always remember!
Congratulations Mrs and Mrs McNeil!
On a warm autumn day in the Barossa region, Andrew patiently stood under the shade of trees waiting for his soon to be wife. Gaby took one step out of the car and another step into her future. Once reunited with her fiance Andy, we could see how this day would go, in this moment when their gazes crossed for the first time this instantly set the feel for the whole day. This feel was the feeling of love, honest connection, emotional embracing, champagne bottles popping and words that are too hard to get out through the held back heartfelt tears.
Once at Gomersal Wines the feeling continued, the wedding, the reception, running around paddocks with photographer Mike Hemus under the purple sunset skies. This day was something else as the love Gaby and Andy share for each other is something else.
Congratulations Mrs and Mrs Scott. (Scottttty)
Tash & Phil
I had the pleasure of filming these two on the 25th of January out at Bridgewater, South Australia.
Set up on a private property surrounded by fields of cows, rustic furnishings, Persian rugs, teepees and home made baked goods made by loved ones. In the sun, Tash and Phils guests gathered around the lake to watch them unite in a life time of love together. There were laughs, there were tears, the was a grooms man's speech that I will never forget.
Tash and Phil, editing your wedding video reduced me to happy tears, your wedding was something truly special and i'm so glad I could capture it for you to watch forever.
Anna & Ben
On the green lawns of Adelaide's lush botanic gardens, under the white umbrellas, surrounded by their friends, family and a few local ducklings, Ben and Anna started their lives together.
An inner city wedding on a perfectly overcast day. Ben and Anna revealed themselves to each other moments before the ceremony began with an intimate first look under the shade of the trees. This set the pace for a relaxing day full of laughs, dancing, some Daryl Braithwaite and so many moments where I stopped and thought wow.. these two are so perfectly made for each other.
Anna & Ben, thank you both so much for letting me be a part of your special day and for being able to meet all your beautiful family and friends.
