Sometimes a wedding sounds too good to be true. When Connie and Luke told me of their plans to get married in Innes National Park, on the south-west tip of the Yorke Peninsula, I could barely contain my excitement. I absolutely love every country wedding, the chance to see new places, spend a night or two in a crappy hotel and a few hours behind the wheel listening to podcasts is always something I look forward to on the wedding calendar, so that fact that this ticked all those boxes and happened to be in one of the most beautiful national parks we have made this one a no-brainer.
Connie and Luke are both pretty low key people, and the wedding had this awesome laid back vibe. From the getting ready through till the reception (and everything in between – including a family of emus!) this was a fun, relaxed day. Thanks for having me on board guys!
Seven years ago a took a trip to Yorke Peninsula with my girlfriend at the time. She had family over there we made a weekend out of it and even managed to hit up Innes National Park. Back then I had maybe a dozen weddings under my belt but I was the most enthusiastic photographer you could imagine, I never went anywhere without my camera and I was in paradise in the national park.
Seven years later my girlfriend is now my wife and earlier this year I had the opportunity to return to Innes to photograph Connie and Luke’s wedding.
I’ve just gone back through my photos from 2010 and found this one I took:
And here’s one I took at the wedding seven years later.
I’m not sure if this is a cool coincidence or a sad indictment on my lack of development as a photographer!
