At 8pm Friday 20th April, we finished our last of 8 weddings shoots for the 2011-12 season. Charlotte coincidentally was also going to be 8 months old that weekend. We thank Jillian & Sam for the opportunity to photograph their special day at the Adelaide Oval. Despite the demolitions going on, spirits were still high and we hope the images reflect your love of cricket! We are also deeply appreciate the stress endured and the love shown for Charlotte by our respective parents as they managed to look after her during these 8 days of photographing , followed by the week of editing afterwards. Starting with Jillian and Sam’s wedding, these are some favourites of ours from the past season.
We wish Jillian & Sam all the best for the future. We certainly had a great time during our shorter than usual coverage of the day!
Now for a step back in time looking at our previous weddings for the season :
We look forward to what the new season begins this spring! With our growing commitment (literally) to Charlotte , we have decided to cap our availability at two weddings a month. So far, it looks like we will be returning to some familiar venues which always helps us be at ease and hopefully bring that sense to the bridal party and all involved. Thanks once again to all the brides and grooms who allowed us into their special day and we hope you enjoyed our services 😉 And now, some final packing before holidays!!!
On a humid day in January we were delighted to share Katie and Trent’s wedding day as their photographers. The skies threatened all day, even spilling some rain in the early afternoon, but by the time the ceremony was done, the sun was out and a cooling breeze gently ruffled the leaves in the Adelaide Botanic Gardens.
Trent’s preparation occurred at his home with a few family members and the groomsmen present. He was calm, composed and kept the nerves completely under control. Not only did he manage to flawlessly dress himself, but also did the honours for the groomsmen! As the Hummer rolled up to the driveway, the skies opened but thankfully cleared for the main ceremony.
Katie, looking radiant as the final touches of make-up were added, remained relaxed and composed throughout the preparation shoot and positively glowed as she arrived at the gates to the Botanic Gardens. Her bridesmaids gushed and giggled as we walked through Murdoch Avenue towards Trent and the wedding guests.
As Katie finally appeared from behind a screen of greenery to walk down the aisle, the guests broke out into smiles – but none rivalled the emotions on Trent’s face as he saw Katie for the first time in her beautiful wedding gown. The sentiments of the day were eloquently summarised in their chosen reading, “Art of Marriage”: that marriage is something that is created and cherished, treasured and nurtured.
Following the group photos we finally had some time to take in the gorgeous surroundings of the Botanic Gardens, with its meandering, shaded paths and old stone buildings.
After that, it was on to the Reception… and some very happy guests!
Thanks Katie and Trent, for allowing us the opportunity to share your special day. We couldn’t have asked for a better way to start off our busiest year of weddings yet!
