Laura & David's Partridge House Garden Gazebo Wedding

Laura and David's wedding was a beautifully relaxed, garden wedding at Partridge House in Glenelg. With gorgeously subtle and romantic decorations creating an inviting space in their reception gazebo. Laura looked absolutely stunning in her Stephanie Allin wedding gown, and so did her bridesmaid with their very cool pink heels. And with one of David's groomsmen playing the music for the ceremony, the day felt extra close and special.

Laura & David's Stormy Summer Glenelg Beach Engagement Portraits

Just days before their wedding, I met Laura and David at a cold and windy Summer Glenelg beach for their engagement portrait session. I could barely believe it when they said they'd never had professional photos before, because they were both complete naturals in front of the camera! Picking up on the smallest of suggestions with complete ease. (I think you guys should be models, hehe). What else can I say that the photos don't already tell? I can't wait to share their beautiful wedding day directly following this post. ^_^

Khiem & Haley's Serafino McLaren Vale Wedding

After an amazing engagement portrait session with Khiem and Haley I was looking forward to their Serafino wedding in McLaren Vale. With a star team including the always bubbly and wonderful Dorina Hafner, their day did not disappoint. The morning had started with a traditional ceremony and lunch, and I arrived in time for their second round of preparations. During both groom and bride preparation photos there was a beautiful buzz of calm excitement and anticipation.

Clare and Blake's Beaumont House Wedding

These guys were super cool! And so were all of their guests. The entire day was full of good vibes, joy, and a relaxed atmosphere in perfectly beautiful yet understated locations. Beaumont House is very close to the city, with a lovely garden overlooked by the houses grande lines. After a beautiful little ceremony, and some family portraits, we took some relaxed bridal party portraits around the garden and balcony.

Hannah & Simon's Kuitpo Forrest Engagement Portraits

Kuitpo forrest (at least for me) feels like an under utilised location for portraits. It's such a gorgeous spot, and very unique too. (It's a forrest in South Australia, come on! 😍) The light shines strongly through the tall trees creating puddles of light amongst the shadows. And in our South Australian forrest, you can also find beautiful tall pockets of kangaroo grass glistening in the sun. On this particular evening meeting Hannah and Simon for their engagement portraits, we were also blessed by the hundreds of butterflies investigating native flowers. Hannah and Simon are so gorgeous inside and out, and such a lovely couple to frolic through the forest with for their engagement portraits. I can't wait for your wedding guys! xx

Jarrod & Tracy's Adelaide Hills Wedding

It was such a lovely and sunny day for Jarrod and Tracy's December wedding in the Adelaide Hills. Both getting ready at little cottages full of charm, before coming together to be married in a gorgeous Hahndorf Church. St Paul's Lutheran Church also had a beautiful charm about it, as did the lovely ceremony performed for them. With the Christmas fair adding to the abundant cheer and joy of their special day.

Amber & Dan's Adelaide Hills Wedding

Amber and Dan's wedding day was full of joy and smiles. They described their day perfectly to me; as "a time to come together with all the people we love to celebrate! A semi vintage inspired eclectic wedding with a relaxed feel." They were looking forward to enjoying their day to the fullest, finally saying I do, sharing it with everyone around them, and top of the list, just being married!

Alex & Ryan's Adelaide Wedding

What a perfect Adelaide wedding this was! Showcasing not one, or two, but three of our great locations! With the wedding ceremony at the beautiful Penny's Hill Winery in McLaren Vale, to bridal portraits in the magnificent Kuitpo forrest, and capping everything off with a big celebration at the funky Kentish in North Adelaide. It was all just perfectly balanced and diverse in the most complimentary way.

Camilla & Brodies Bohemian Rustic Wedding in the Barossa Valley

When I first walked in the door on Friday morning I could not stop squealing "everything is so pretty!!" From the bridesmaids gowns, to the gorgeous flower crowns, Camilla’s beautiful lace wedding gown, (all of the outfits really), the hair, makeup, flowers, styling, beautiful happy smiles, pink fluffy slippers, everything. Including Camilla’s parents gorgeous property, with rolling hills and vineyards and a gorgeous natural setting of gums and the quintessential, semi-rural Barossa property.
