Michael behind his veil

I was honoured to shoot friends getting ready for their wedding ceremony a few weeks ago – Kenneth and Michael chose and orchestrated the most elaborate Western-themed gay wedding I’ve ever been to!! Everyone who attended went to so much trouble to dress up – this elevated the fun to the max, and the boys […]

The Jewellery

This is the jewellery for Kenneth and Michael’s wedding – it was a Western themed ceremony and the cacti just seemed appropriate…

Kenneth and Michael – jewellery and spurs

Every detail was considered… loving the spurs! They even had an extra little bell attached to ensure the “chink chink” as they walked.

The dance outfit

The boys had a change of outfit for their incredible wedding dance – everything made by Michael except the tee and the belt! Tight, glistening orange spandex hot-pants with matching bandana, leather-look waistcoat and fake-fur chaps complete with fringing… Supreme workmanship set off by two hot bods!

On the beach

The reception was held at the Seacliff Yacht Club, so I took advantage of the setting and asked the couple to have a wander down along the beach… This shot just happened – shows how totally in love these guys are – such a great couple to work with.

Lizzy’s bouquet of Lizzies!

Lizzy’s bouquet was filled with the most exquisite white, and dusty pink Lisianthus – I loved how they looked against the material of her dress…

Lizzy and Craig

Lizzy and Craig

Some more of this gorgeous couple – this again was taken at the back of Beaumont House…

A quiet moment before the reception…

Out the back of Beaumont House there is an old olive grove…

Lizzy and Craig at Beaumont House

Lizzy and Craig

Lizzy and Craig were married at Beaumont House and had their reception at Seacliff Yacht Club. They were such a lovely down-to-earth couple to work with – we had fun playing with a few ideas, but mostly I just watched them and photographed what I saw. Clearly deeply in love, their day was just perfect […]

Gianna and Chris

Gianna and Chris

Gianna and Chris posed up at the lookout at Goolwa Beach – this is one of the last photos we took before the couple headed off to the reception. Gianna is a great photographer herself, so it was a real privilege to be asked to shoot her wedding – this pose was her idea 🙂

Gianna and Chris

Gianna and Chris were married on Goolwa Beach, South Australia on February 25th 2012. The temperature on the day reached over 39 degrees celcius, yet this could not spoil the perfect ceremony surrounded by friends and family, performed just before sunset right down on the sand.

David and Laura

David and Laura

This one has a real charm about it – they weren’t posing at all – just chatting between themselves… such a loving and tender moment.

David and Laura

David and Laura

A couple more photos from David and Laura’s wedding on November 26th…

Sage and Nathan

Sage and Nathan

After the photos at Port Adelaide, we went down to Largs Bay and took a few shots on the beach… This is actually the first shot I took on the beach, and I think it’s my favourite.

David and Laura

David and Laura

Laura has to have been THE most relaxed bride I have ever met – do you know that at 4pm she was supposed to be walking out to meet her groom… and at 3.45, she was still in track-pants and a t-shirt, sipping champagne? Same with her bridesmaids! Amazingly cool, calm and collected. Not only […]

Sage and Nathan

Sage and Nathan

I was second-shooter for the first time a few weeks back, to Naomi and Paul Clarke from NaPaul Photographics. The wedding was that of Naomi’s nephew Nathan, and his beautiful bride, Sage. The ceremony was held in Nathan’s father’s gallery – Mark Lobert Gallery – down in Port Adelaide. Afterwards, we took a few shots […]

A sucker for a posy ...

A sucker for a posy …

Sarah’s exquisite posy of white and fuschia Singapore Orchids, white roses and smoky purple tulips tied with a white satin ribbon – my favourite part of the bridal assemblage.

Ryan and Sarah

Ryan and Sarah

I have been a bit lapse in keeping up my blog photos! Sorry about that… here’s one from the last wedding I shot for Ryan and Sarah. Married at Belair National Park this was taken in the late afternoon sun just after the ceremony – beautiful fun loving couple – really easy to photograph they […]

Morag and Gavin

Morag and Gavin

This is Morag, about half an hour before her wedding at The Capri Theatre. They were married amongst family and friends in the main theatre, with Gavin and his two children rising up through the floor with the old “4 manual 29 rank organ”. Morag entered with her two boys flanking her sides. She was […]

Capri Cinema

Capri Theatre

I was fortunate enough to shoot a wedding at the Capri Theatre a few weeks ago. I’ll pop a couple of photos up of people in the next few days, but here’s the building in all its glory, complete with the “current feature” title board out the front with Morag and Gavin’s names on it. […]

Billie and Karina

Billie and Karina

The ceremony and reception of Billie and Karina was held in Mt Crawford Forest this past weekend, and was officiated by Merrilyn Williams. The weather was just perfect – sunny but cool, and the setting was equally perfect – green, lush and natural. Tall gums formed the canopy with Xanthorrhoea and other low shrubs, the […]

Cassie and John

Cassie and John

Cassie and John hired me to photograph their wedding in December 2010. A lovely, loving young couple, with some great fun, contemporary, yet at the same time, retro ideas for their ceremony. It was a casual, sunset wedding held in the front garden of their home, with the reception in the backyard. John is an […]

Holley and Alana

Holley and Alana

Holley and Alana’s ceremony was held at Windy Point, South Australia. The theme was “Moroccan” with richly coloured rugs and cushions, drapes and lanterns hanging from the ceiling of the permanent marquis that is built in Belair, high up above the city of Adelaide. The building  is seemingly sitting in the tops of the prolific […]

Caroline

Caroline

This is Caroline, minutes before getting into the car to be taken to the church in Wattle Park to marry Scott. She was actually extremely calm, and was completely ready to go at this stage. Her mother and brides’ maids were much more flighty; fussing around with safety pins and hairspray. She and Scott had […]

Valerie

Valerie

This is Valerie just before heading off to the ceremony – still full of nerves, she was so beautiful doing a last minute check of her bouquet…

Still Life - Tammy and Karen's wedding things

Still Life – Tammy and Karen’s wedding things

Tammy spent quite a bit of time – just like any bride – getting her hair, make-up and outfit “just so” for her big day. From the Asian-inspired black and red Cheongsam and Pants suit, the decorative baubles in her hair and carefully applied make-up, she was an absolutely stunning bride. I will load photos […]

Tim and Sally

Tim and Sally

I love this shot of Tim and Sally! They are such a fun couple, and when the rain came down on their wedding, and we had to think of an alternative indoor location for a photo shoot, someone suggested the Chelsea Cinema! It was perfect for them, as they had been on many “dates” over […]

Katey and Nick

Katey

Katey and Nick were married earlier this year at their home in the Adelaide foothills. It was a very warm and casual affair with loads of family in their back yard, and they celebrated with their loved-ones before and after the actual ceremony. They then put on a veritable feast of Hungarian food and local […]

Beautiful Bec

Beautiful Bride, Bec.

Bec was the most beautiful bride!A natural beauty, she has the most expressive eyes… Her stunning burnt orange dress was topped off with a lace shrug, and gorgeous orange rosettes on the left shoulder and right hip. Strikingly original and resplendent!

Bec and Erik

Bec and Erik

I shot Bec and Erik’s wedding earlier this year. It was a beautifully warm day and the ceremony was held at a local park overlooking the river, surrounded by tall gum trees. The bride arrived in this carriage pulled by two beautiful white horses with long, fuchsia-coloured head-dresses. She was dressed in burnt orange with […]

Eugene and Valerie

Eugene and Valerie

Eugene and Valerie were married at Thorndon Park Reserve last year. They were taken from the ceremony to the reception in this tiny old Citroen, so we took a few shots at the park with the car before they headed off. Luckily we were able to get the car into the park to capture these […]

Tammy and Karen

Tammy and Karen

I photographed Tammy and Karen’s commitment ceremony back in October 2008. I worked together with Paul Tait and we shot a  lot of pre-wedding photos of the girls getting ready, as well as the wedding ceremony and reception held at the Palais in Semaphore. It was a beautiful ceremony with an Asian theme – lots […]

Tori

Tori and Drewser

Drewser and Tori had a casual and private wedding at Pt Elliot back in 2008. This is a detailed shot of Tori’s dress – she looked incredibly stunning! We had a lot of fun with the photos, including some boudoir shots.

Caroline

Caroline and Scott

I shot Caroline and Scott’s wedding in January after they were referred to me by a friend. We started with the pre-wedding photos at Caroline’s family home in the hills, to the church ceremony, shots with her grandfather in a nursing home,  to the Botanic Gardens with the wedding party and cars and finally at […]

Tim and Sally-Jo

At the Chelsea Cinema…

We took some photos at the Chelsea Cinema in Kensington – it was a last minute idea, because of the rain, but I am so glad we did!

The Boys!

The Boys!

Tim’s Groomsmen – Fabulous guys! All really interesting and diverse characters… lots of fun 🙂

Sally-Jo

Sally-Jo

Sally-Jo and Tim are dear friends who allowed me to photograph their wedding – they had such amazing ideas and the outfits were across between super-retro and ultra funky – it was a fun day, despite the rain! This is Sally-Jo, just after the knot had been tied…
