Bride and groom in wild flowers at Snelling Beach Kangaroo Island

I hugged Lauren and Samuel, gathered my cameras, and decided which route I would take out of this enormous fig tree we were all in. The back entrance was the closest to my car so that’s the one I chose, and as I climbed over the roots, and ducked under the branches, my head was […]

bridal party in forest opposite kuitpo hall

Tell me about your The Beginning! We met in Mildura when James moved from the Adelaide Hills to Mildura for work. Our first date was a trip to the cinema after we both missed a movie that a group of friends was going to see. Thor Ragnarok, very romantic! When and where did you get […]

Weddings come in all shapes and sizes, and Leah and Edward’s size was small. 26 of their nearest and dearest were on hand to witness their nuptials, and enjoy the celebrations afterwards, including a bunch of kids who were straight up having the time of their lives. Thanks so much for having me on board, […]

Mandalay House Wedding Spring

As far as wedding venues around South Australia go, there are few that conjure up images of old-world charm with a modern twist quite like Mandalay House. The grounds themselves are spectacular, but that’s just the beginning, the homestead is big and open and ideal for bridal preparations, and remoteness feels like you’ve been transported […]

Irina and Jason managed to pull off an incredible, intimate wedding with just a few short months of planning time, but you’d never know it. White Hill Estate was the perfect canvas for their reception masterpiece, a single long table illuminated by overhead festoon light, it created an incredibly intimate atmosphere for around 40 of […]

Rustic ruins at Paxton winery wedding

After their first attempt at getting married earlier this year was scuttled by a covid case at the hens party and subsequent close contract restrictions (they feel like a lifetime ago!), Imogen and Cooper finally made it happen on the weekend. With the weather gods smiling, and the winemaking gods from Paxton weaving their magic […]

Wet and windy are two things you’re not really looking for on your wedding day, but for Jess and Shaun it didn’t matter. The inside/outside debate had been raging all day, ultimately they decided to throw caution to the wind (literally) and roll the dice with the soggy bottom lawns at Mt Lofty House. In […]

Virginia and Peter’s wedding at the Winehouse Langhorne creek was unlike any wedding I’ve been to before. For a start, the wedding party consisted entirely of their kids, a beautiful collection of souls who clearly loved one another deeply. Secondly, there was no aisle! This made things a little tricky for me, but as a […]
