There’s backyard weddings and there’s backyard weddings. Ella and Sam were fortunate to be able to use one of Adelaide’s finest backyards as their wedding venue, a stunning property on the iconic Victoria Drive.

Adelaide botanic gardens wedding

Cute moments, an incredible collection of fine wines and an overflowing of joy in every direction you looked is the way I would describe Kirby and Ash’s wedding at Templewood House. It was clear that a lot of effort went into putting this day together, and boy oh boy did it pay off. They were […]

Mariafe Artacho del Solar wedding photo with husband Jack Curtin at Glenelg Beach in Adelaide

When Mariafe and Jack told me of their plans to marry at 2pm, overlooking the ocean, in a shade-free park in the middle of summer I was nervous. There were a lot of factors working against me, shadows, squinting, heat, sweat, you name it. In hindsight I was a fool to question it – the […]

For most cities in the world, you’d need to drive for a while to find a gorgeous field for some photos, perhaps you would head up into the hinterland, or down to the coast somewhere. Not Adelaide. Right in heart of the city, in the CBD itself, exists a secret spot with lush native grasses, […]

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.
