nanna on the dance floor, mt lofty house wedding, fun adelaide wedding, quirky wedding photo

It’s true. I don’t always remember what a couple looks like between the time of our first meeting and our second meeting which is often 12 months later, particularly when our first meeting is done over Skype. Such was the case with Olivia and Francis. For many months those names were staring down at me from […]

Any business book will tell you that to stand out from the crowd you need to be doing something different. Zig when everyone else zags. To that end, when the rest of the world was busy putting together their summary of 2014 at the appropriate time (ie the last few days of the year) I […]

Choo choo!!! What’s that sound? It’s the blog train and I’m back on board! It’s been a busy year on the weddings front and on the home front (a new baby boy, our second!) but it’s been an extremely lean year for the blog.  These days I post a lot of photos over on my […]

I used to be good at blogging. I started the blog back in 2008 and was posting a new entry every couple of weeks, the next year I cranked up the output to nearly 1 post week and I kept up that pace for about 3 years. In 2011 I had 42 posts for the […]

Cassie and Josh headed down to Adelaide from up North to get married last year. The wedding had a bit of a beachy undercurrent (pun partially intended) with no venue being further than 5 minutes from the ocean. The guys got ready at the Stamford Grand, the girls were at a house in Brighton, the […]

Richmond Hotel Wedding, Rundle Mall Wedding

There’s nothing more South Australian than getting married in Rundle Mall, and unless you want to compete with the Hare Krishnas and the bikie flautist your best option is the Hotel Richmond. This is exactly what Loren and Dylan decided to do and what a day it turned out to be!

When I first met Huan and Alan and we went through my portfolio they mentioned how they were wanting something a bit different with their wedding photos, something a little bit fun and quirky and unconventional (they particularly liked Josh and Tania working down the aisle…. of the local supermarket).  So when a police car […]

Adelaide cbd wedding

One of the things I love about weddings is how everyone does things a little bit differently. As a general rule it’s normally pretty relaxed when the guys are getting ready, there’s really not much they need to do besides throwing on a suit, sprucing up their hair (and sometimes getting their photographer to tie […]

What’s the worst thing you can imagine happening in the lead up to your wedding? I have a friend whose wedding dress was destroyed after her dressmaker’s shop burned down (fortunately there was just enough time before the wedding for a remake). Several years ago I arrived at a venue in London to discover a […]

Glen Ewin Estate wedding

If you’re anything like me you’ve got an Olympic shaped hole in your heart that Big Brother or the new Underbelly is just not going to fill. To honour our nation’s 7 Olympic gold medals I’ve decided to do “7 blogs in 7 days” (also, because I’ve got a bunch of stuff I’ve been meaning […]
