Jess & Brad's Chateau Tanunda Wedding

Jess & Brad's Chateau Tanunda Wedding

What an absolutely beautiful wedding this was in every single way. Jess and Brad's wedding was rustic but modern, with delicate mints, greys and an abundance of white casting a gorgeously elegant colour pallet for the day. Both Brad and Jess got ready for their big day at the Novotel, so close but completely out of sight from each other. With many of their family and friends also staying at the Novotel, it had a great vibe about it! Full of fun and excitement.

After a short drive to Chateau Tanunda Jess and Brad married with one of the very best super short ceremony I've witnessed in a while. To make this even more special, the ceremony was officiated by Jess' lovely Grandma! After many hugs and so many happy smiles, it was time to capture our portraits. We had our plan of locations laid out, and even though we were running a tad behind schedule we nailed it! Caught up on time on top of capturing so many amazing photos in an abundance of amazing locations.

Jess and Brad planned such a good reception party, with beautiful centre pieces and floral arrangements and a live band that brought the vibe from fun dinner to rock-out party in mere moments. In between the formalities and celebrations we snuck out two more times for some sunset photos and even some twilight photos, taking advantage of the street lamps, fairy lights and pitch black barrel room. (Yes, I did find it creepy when I realised I'd forgotten my camera bag and had to venture back into the dark alone with a torch, haha!) This all adds up to what I think is the largest blog post I've ever put together!

Congratulations Jess & Brad!! xx
