Basket Ranges Adelaide Wedding Nina + Hugo

Basket Ranges Adelaide weddingadelaide hills

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.

Adelaide is in my opinion a much underrated city.  I love the architecture,  the galleries and the access to the Adelaide Hills which is so happens is where the wedding was.  Yay!

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.

Yandina Station Wedding – Ryana + Simon

May 6th, 2016

Yandina Station Wedding

There really is nothing sweeter as a wedding photographer than going deep undercover.  Having your clients so relaxed that they let themselves go, be in the moment and forget you are there.  Some people might think that is strange.  Why would you want people to forget you are there?  Wouldn’t it mean that you don’t get great photographs?  On the contrary (and a trap for young players) the photographs that are THE BEST, are the ones where real stuff is happening!  Not posed, not staged, not fake.  THE REAL DEAL.  If we were surfers we would probably call that state, The Stoke.  (The Stoke – for anyone who doesn’t surf – is that first time elation you get when you ride your first wave. Apparently it is better than , well everything, and surfers spend their life chasing that high.) So I guess you could say us photographers are chasing The Stoke on each and every wedding.  You know what I am talking about and it is reason why most people hate having their photograph taken, and hate the photographs of themselves as well.  You know the drill, family gathering, dad brings out the camera and tells everyone to smile, while he adjusts the settings for what seems like half an hour, and then gets you to smile again, SMILE!!! and then – click – the world’s worst photograph.  What you have is that fake smile with a little bit of boredom and a tinge of please-get-this-over-with frustration and annoyance.  Now that’s a face you want in a photograph – NOT!  This is the reason why candid photographs are better, you are wearing your real face, your real smile, your real laughter, your real love.  And this love, the love between Ryana and Simon, oh-my-word-yes, this love is the realest of real loves.
