Adam & Chris' Small, Relaxed and Fun Gay Wedding

Adam and Chris have a sign on their wall that says; “Love, Live, Laugh”, which was the perfect embodiment for their wedding. When I asked Adam and Chris to describe their wedding they called it low key, but when I asked what they were most looking forward to they said; everything! A day that was small but perfect, and full of smiles, tears, and celebration. Full of love, full of life, and full of laughter. All tied up with perfect shoes, favourite colours, close friends, and special family.

Taryn & Ale's Adelaide Registry Office Wedding at Chesser house

Taryn and Ale had a beautiful little Adelaide Registry office wedding ceremony at Chesser House in the Adelaide CBD. Along with their gorgeous little one, close friends and family. Kept simple, small and very personal. We even made a trip to the art gallery to recreate how they first met. Picture this, Ale walking slowly through sliding doors into the art gallery to see her, Taryn, and knowing right away, that she was the one for him. Such a sweet (and oh so rom-com) way to first meet!

Adelaide Registry Office Wedding

Cameron & Caroline married in a very intimate, secret (& surprise!) wedding at the Adelaide Registry Office on Grenfell St. Nothing fancy, just love all around. It was one of those mostly sunny Adelaide Winter days, and despite some showers we were able to play with a bit of light on the streets of Adelaide. Which made me one very happy photographer, especially with two such lovely people and their beautiful love to celebrate.

Liz & Dean's Adelaide Hill's Winter Elopement

This was one of those beautiful little elopements where everything felt as though it came together perfectly. And proof that despite the weather, your day can still be every beautiful thing it needs to be. Liz and Dean eloped at the gorgeous Bonney Berg Bed and Breakfast in the Adelaide Hills at Cromer, near Birdwood. Their beautiful host Bron made sure everything ran perfectly, witnessing their wedding, providing delicious meals and such a beautifully welcoming environment with access to their stunning property and grounds. She also let us borrow her floral arrangements to create a lovely, loose and rustic bouquet. I still cannot believe that the flower is a cabbage! How very cool.

Megan & Andrew's Adelaide Botanic Park Elopement

Megan & Andrew's elopement on Friday was a beautiful and special day. We were a little worried about the weather, keeping a back up plan ready to go just in case. But in the end, the weather was incredibly beautiful. The big Morton Bay Fig trees held special meaning for Megan & Andrew, and also provided the perfect backdrop for the wedding. I love how their huge branches and roots enveloped the ceremony in a sweeping embrace. It did rain, but it was also sunny. This is a magical combination. Guests and family cuddled together under umbrellas as a light shower sprinkled down during the reception, the droplets glowing in the sun.

Nicolette & Daniel's Veale Garden Elopement

Think a wedding can't be planned in 3 weeks? Think again! :) After many years together, Nicolette and Daniel decided it was time to tie the knot, and they didn't want to wait to do it. With life happening all around them, Nicolette completing her Phd, and a move to Singapore imminent, they made time to commit to a life spent together, and a cherished little elopement in the Adelaide Veale Gardens.

Charlotte & Edward's Belair National Park Elopement

This was a special elopement for sister business Our Wild Love Elopements. It reflected everything we want our elopements to be; relaxed, intimate and all about the love. Charlotte and Edward couldn't wait to be married, and so with just over one month, and with the help of friends and family they put together the most perfect little elopement. The arbour, table settings, flowers and Heidelberg cake all looked both beautiful and delicious!

Lauren & Brent's Beautiful Mylor Farm Elopement

Lauren & Brent's wedding on Friday was the definition of what an elopement should be. Beautifully small, intimate, full of emotion and in a stunning location close to their hearts. Mylor has beautiful rolling hills, lovely views overlooking Mount Lofty and a rustic conservation park. It even has it’s own Thai Buddhist forest Monastery! (Not many Adelaide suburbs can boast that). Better still though, it was right in the backyard of where Brent had spent his childhood growing up. Pair that with the fact that he is a park ranger, and that they both enjoy regular, adventurous walks through National parks and reserves, and this was without a doubt the perfect spot for their elopement.
