Well it's official Chantel and Simon have finally tied the knot and eloped in the Riverland. It was a beautiful surprise shared with their families and intimate few. They are now having fun sharing their news and celebrating with friends back home in Pt Augusta. A huge congratulations to this beautiful couple and their gorgeous little girls Ivy and Brynlee, who stole the hearts of everyone. To set the scene it was 42 degrees along Lake Bonney that afternoon, so the dip in the water afterwards was a welcomed relief. So too was the cool change which blew through later in the afternoon. It was very exciting to be a part of their special day and commitment to each other.
This fabulous couple shared an amazing Wedding Day, with their little boy Hunter stealing the show. Supported by great friends and their loving families these two made it all official at Trenbith House in Berri. The bridal party were full of fun and laughter and many hilarious moments were captured. The floral display by 'Flowers by Jodie Lee' were just amazing and formed a wonderful backdrop to their vows and ceremony. Fun all the way - Mr and Mrs Halupka .......
Callie and Mitch created a magical, original and wonderful Wedding experience at the Loxton Historical Village. Callie wore a beautiful gown that was just perfect for her and she arrived in her grandfather's old original hupmobile, surprising him. Mitch was accompanied my his two beautiful daughters and their gorgeous smiles, all day long. While Callie and Mitch ducked off for a few intimate blossom and river photographs the village was open for guests to explore, before a spectacular evening of fun and festivities under the marquee.
This is a true love story - they both grew up in the small town of Loxton, they fell in love and moved away to to the west seeking some adventure, This couple are best friends, they share a great sense of fun, humour and zest for life. Their Wedding was relaxed, casual, energetic and fun, It brought together a mix of people from both sides of the country. The bridal party where the funniest, most witty bunch of people and had me laughing all afternoon, Their reception at the Renmark Club was one big party and everyone had a super time, Great families support this couple and it was a truly fabulous Wedding Day all round.
It’s always a great privilege to be invited to a client’s home to photograph them in their own environment. My friend Jolie recently asked me to capture some images of her family at her parent’s Eden Valley vineyard, in celebration of a milestone birthday.
I can’t help but smile when I think about Jolie, her husband Dave and their children (two sets of twins!). When our two families get together, we have a total of eight children between us, so it’s never dull or quiet!
I love how these images celebrate their life, work and connection.
Erica & Kim's Champagne Forest Picnic Wedding was unique, quirky and most fitting to this couple and their greatest loves - Food and Wine. The setting for this picnic was on the couples Barossa property, on the most perfect summers night. Nestled amongst the forest trees were picnic rugs and an abundance of gourmet treats. It was both classy and casual with all guests asked to bring their favourite bottle of champagne.
I met the Fenwicks on a warm sunny evening, at home on their family vineyard property. Right from the beginning it was fun, with all the counsins transported by trailer behind the tractor. Everybody was happy and got into the mood, pulling many funny faces and antics behind the scene.
One of my favouites was right near the end, while walking towards me, the kids started running.
I love how candid this is and in the moment, capturing this extended family having fun together.
Intimate, casual, relaxed affair, just as this bride and groom wanted. The three boys are all mechanics for Riverland Toyota so we had to throw in a Toyota jump or two. What a great fun bridal party, really easy to work with. An extra special one to capture as it was here at Loveday Ridge, not far to go home...
Shelby is a gentle giant at 6ft 8in tall, it's fair to say I needed the help of my step ladder. Emily and Shelby are both big characters and I see them perfectly matched, always laughing and joking around. Their Wedding was the most perfect October day, set among the gardens at Rustons Roses, Renmark.
I first met Izzy and Luke when I photographed Luke's sisters Wedding a few years earlier. Already at first meeting, the spark between this young couple was very clear. Fast forward 3 years and I was excited to travel back to Farrel Flat , the Burge Farm and share in another great family Wedding for this wonderful family.
