The sun may be shinning, but the wind certainly didn't want to play nice the day Jamaya & Jason got married, but that didn't stop them from enjoying every minute! Set amongst the greenery of Grange Gold Club, this gorgeous couple said 'I Do' in front of their closest family and friends, whilst their two adorable sons acted as page boys. Whilst the harrowing wind made it hard for anything to stay put (especially the girl's hair), it didn't stop us from capturing some gorgeous photos and having a laugh. Such an amazing day to be a part of, I wish Jamaya, Jason and their little ones all the best in their lives as a family. (Ceremony + Reception: Grange Golf Club).
They say opposites attract, and this couldn't have been more evident with Naomi & Michael. From the moment I first met them, I could tell that Naomi's carefree, crazy ways were the 'ying'' to Michael's organised, perfectionist 'yang' ways, but what was more evident was the love these two had for each other. With the beautiful spring sunshine beaming down on us, Peter Lehmann Winery served as there perfect playground for the wedding and photos, which was filled with an abundance of laughter. I don't need to wish Naomi & Michael good luck with their marriage, as I have a feeling it is already on their side! (ceremony & reception: Peter Lehmann Winery).
Being ask to be the photographer for a a couple's wedding is such a honour, but being ask to photograph a friend's wedding is on a whole other level. I have had the pleasure in knowing Lauren + Michael for quite some time now, as I went to high school with Michael and came to meet Lauren 8 years ago when they started dated, so needless to say it was about time these two got married! Everything about this wedding was as beautiful as the couple themselves- I have never met two people as nice, humble, fun and genuine as these two. Whilst we did have time against our side, I couldn't have asked for a better day with Lauren + Michael, and it was so lovely to see them finally say 'I do'. Lauren + Michael- I wish you a lifetime of love and happiness and I look forward to many more years of friendship. (ceremony: St Francis Xavier Cathedral / reception: Ballroom Function Centre)
A wedding is not only a day that a couple confirms their love and commitment to each other, but is also a celebration of life shared with family and friends. Dimity and David's day embodied all of the above. When I first met these two I knew that their day would be sincere, full of love and true to themselves, allowing their personalities to shine through, and when the day arrived I couldn't have been more right. From the moment I stepped foot into the boys apartment until the moment I left the reception, every minute of the day was perfect. There were tears of joy, moments of nervousness, screams of laughter but above all the feeling of love. It's fair to say I pushed Dimity and David to the brink when it came to photos (I like to keep on going and going and going), but I think the end results speak for themselves! Thank you Dimity, David and all those involved on the day for making my job not only fun, but so easy. I know that you will enjoy a long life together filled with love and happiness.

It was a perfect March afternoon when Melissa + Max married at her parents home. Their ceremony was simple but filled with love, as close family and friends looked on under the afternoon sun. Glenelg beach then served as the perfect backdrop to our creative photos, as the new bride and groom enjoy some time together. It was a such a pleasure capturing Melissa + Max's day, and I wish them all the best as husband and wife. (Ceremony & reception: private residence, Glenelg).
What better way to celebrate Australia Day than with a wedding? Well that's exactly what Bec + Blake thought too, only Australia Day also commemorated the day they had their first ever date. With the afternoon sun shining down, Bec + Blake said 'I do' in front of their closest family and friends overlooking the beach, before heading off to enjoy the rest of the warm summer's night. I will say, their reception entrance song was certainly one to remember and I'm sure set the party atmosphere for the rest of the night. Congratulations Bec + Blake, all the best to you for your future together. (Ceremony & reception: West Beach Sailing Club).
Being Adelaide and having Italian heritage meant the somewhere in my career I would photograph a couple's wedding who were somehow connected to me- Chanel + Rocco were that couple. Having photographed one of Rocco's groomsmen's wedding previously and with Rocco friends with my close friend's husband, I knew even before meeting the couple that not only were they going to be friendly and relaxed, but that their wedding would be an occasion to remember. How right I was! From the moment I arrived at the boy's house to the moment I left the reception, every aspect of the day was filled with love, laughter, and fun. Chanel + Rocco, along with their bridal party, made sure that no one was going to forget their wedding for a long time to come. From a very nervous groom (sorry Rocco) to a very sexy bride, it was an absolute honour to be able to capture the day, especially since I was working alongside Carl from I Do Cinema. Thank you Chanel + Rocco for being such a joy to work with, I truly wish you a lifetime together of happiness and love! (Ceremony: St Peter's Girls Chapel / Reception: Adelaide Town Hall).
Whilst it's true that all weddings are filled with love, happiness & laughter, Thu Anh + Paul's wedding with filled with more than usual. From the moment I arrived for Paul's pre ceremony photos to the minute I left the reception there was this constant positive energy surrounding the couple. Mt Lofty House served as the perfect background for the day, allowing me to capture plenty of gorgeous photos of the bride and groom. This is certainly one wedding that I am very proud of. I can not thank Thu Anh, Paul, the bridal party and their respective families enough for allowing me to be part of this special day. The angels were certainly looking down on you both. (Ceremony & reception: Mt Lofty House)
From the moment I met Jessie + Dan I knew their wedding day would be nothing but laughter and fun, and sure enough they didn't disappoint. Set on the banks of the Murray River at Mannum, these two lovebirds exchanged vows in front of their closet family and friends, before turning the lawns of the Pretoria Hotel into a outdoor dance floor. Despite the near gail force winds, Jessie + Dan, along with their bridal party, ensured that every minute of the day was one that they would remember forever. They even gave me the best 'silly' bridal photo of my career so far. Thanks for an amazing Jessie + Dan, I wish you all the best as husband and wife (Ceremony & reception; Pretoria Hotel, Mannum).
