Sandi & Paul's Kooyonga Golf Club Wedding

Sandi & Paul's wedding At Kooyonga Golf Club felt like one big, beautiful party, very relaxed, fun, and full of laughter, love and LOTS of dancing! (DJ Loc Tran did some very cool mixes and mashes that got everyone jumping, very fun.) Right from the ceremony through the portraits (and yes, we ALL got to drive electric gold buggies. Woo!), the reception and right to the end. Everyone was just so happy for Sandi & Paul, celebrating in exuberant style. I was so pleased to be part of this gorgeous and fun day.

Alice and Marty's West Beach Sailing Club Wedding

This was such a beautiful and relaxed wedding. The Adelaide Sailing Club at West Beach makes a lovely wedding venue. With friendly staff, gorgeous beach views and a very relaxed atmosphere. Very well suited to Alice and their guests, who were all so friendly, fun, gorgeous and chill. With amazing eclectic floral arrangements, great tunes from the Girls Next Door and stunning decor from the donut wall to the floral chandelier and lighting. Everything was perfect.

Courtney and Kristian's Coriole Vineyard Wedding

This was such a beautiful wedding. Glamorous with a hint of vintage, at the gorgeous setting of Coriole Vineyards. Having met in Europe when Courtney was backpacking, and setting up a life together in Norway with their two beautiful boys, it was the first time all of their family had been together in the same place. But you wouldn’t have been able to tell that, as the buzz of friendliness and happy chatter was a constant background noise the entire night. As was the amazing tunes from the Baker Boys Band that rang out across the vineyard.

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.
