Basket Ranges Adelaide wedding
Adelaide and the Basket Ranges are an amazing place to have a wedding. I met Hugo for the first time when he was working at Rosalie Gourmet Deli. I was working on a personal project photographing cyclists and we soon became good friends. Hugo and Nina are just one of those couples that make sense. I was delighted to be invited to the wedding and could not resist taking my camera. This is just what happens when you love what you do. This and I also new that it was going to be one of the most heartfelt weddings I would go to.
This was a very family focused DIY wedding. DIY can be a bit hit and miss but when the right people are involved it can come off a treat. These guys had a great bunch of creatives for friends so I knew we were on a winner.
Hugo and Nina were married at Our Lady of the Rosary Catholic church in Sterling East. It is a beautiful stone church built in 1881 and has all the romance you would expect from a country chapel.
One of the most memorable moments of the ceremony was when Hugo’s Dad Graham Davis (or G man as he is affectionately known) and brothers sang Wreckless Eric’s Whole wide world. I don’t think there was a dry eye in the house.
The reception was held at the family vineyard in the Basket Ranges. Which was very special. Rolling hills, vines, apple orchards, a Gin bar on the hill and a trail bike. (which I got to ride) And the dance floor, boy, the dance floor. It was the most epic full contact floor I have ever been on. Heels up swinging barnyard fun.
You just have to love a Whiskey bar with a view!
The Melbourne Gin Company Gin was very tasty too.
Every wedding needs a Trail Bike and a maremma sheepdog.
I am telling you people the dance floor was full contact hardcore!!!!!
