Mount Lofty House is not only one of Adelaide’s most picturesque wedding venues, it’s also one of the most versatile. The onsite accommodation means the guys can get ready in one place, the girls in another, then the ceremony is held with the Picadilly Valley as a backdrop and the reception is just 50 metres down the garden path.
Without all the extra travel time throughout the day, it means things can start a little later and everyone gets a bit more a sleep in. In this instance, the later start was perfect as I had spent the night in Ardossen after shooting a wedding at Innes National Park the day before. Adam and the guys got ready at the Coachman’s Cottage which I’d not been to before, it was a beautiful little spot and really nice for photos. From there I headed over the road to the Gatekeeper’s Cottage, also for the first time, and was super impressed with the setup.
The sun was out, but as the afternoon went on the temperature dropped and by the time the reception started we were all ready for a hot meal and glass of red wine to warm up. Jenna and Adam were such a fun couple to photograph, they had this beautiful natural connection and it was obvious how much they loved just being in each other’s company.
Enough words, here are the photos!
Jenna and Adam met on Tinder! One of the first weddings I ever shot in 2008 was a couple who met online. Back then there was all sorts of stigma attached to online dating, I love that in 2017 no one bats an eyelid.
