Sarah + Benn’s Wedding

Sarah + Benn’s Wedding

Sarah and Benn become husband and wife in romantic style in front of the gorgeous Martindale Hall. Every moment and every detail were just perfect. All of the locations offered a backdrop of rustic, country, glamour’s tranquility which is my absolute fav. Sarah was effortlessly stunning all day and Benn was a handsome true gentleman.

I absolutely love “how we met” stories and Sarah + Benn’s is no exception. (I am also now thinking I have to go to Clare race’s… Who’s coming?)
“I first saw Benn in a home movie that my brother and his mates made when they were at school at Urrbrae. Benn was one of my brothers friends, and I though that he was pretty cute. This was back when I was still in Year 9 and Benn as in Year 12.
It wasn’t until years later that we saw each other at the Clare races (classy) and got talking.
The next year at the Clare races, we bumped into each other again, and basically spent the whole day hanging out together with my brother and Benn’s friends.
Benn messaged me the next day and it all happened from there.”

I asked Sarah what special touches they had added in to their wedding (and I can say how much love I have for the response) – “We have tried to keep all of our vendors local to showcase the beauty of the Clare Valley and all that it has to offer. The videographer is a primary school friend of Sarah’s and is the son of the current caretakers of the Hall. The entertainment (Brad Bryksy Music) is also an old friend of Sarah’s.
There are a lot of sentimental elements to the day. The location of the ceremony is very sentimental to me (Sarah) as I grew up on the farm that surrounds the Hall. I spent my childhood visiting the Hall, riding motorbikes with my brother to the creek that runs past the Hall, having bbq’s down at the creek, going to the Hall on school visits etc. It holds a very significant place in my heart, and has always been my dream to get married there.
The car that I (Sarah) will arrive in belonged to my Great Grandmother, and is now owed by my brother.
The mustang that Benn and I will leave the wedding in and arrive to the reception in belongs to Benn’s father Mark.
The brooch that I will wear on my bouquet has quite a bit of family significance. It was originally given to Margaret (Maggie) Parks on her wedding day by her husband Adam Lindsay Gordon. Adam was a famous Australian poet, and is the only Australian to have his bust in the poets corner of Westminster Abbey. The tradition of the brooch is that it has been passed down to the first born female in each generation and worn on her wedding day. I (Sarah) feel very blessed to be part of this tradition.
The first dance song is significant as it will be a Frank Sinatra song. Sarah late Poppa’s favourite singer was Sinatra.
All of these things are very significant, and will make the day all the more special.” (I agree 100%…)

You two 10’s, the epitome of #jnbrides + #jngrooms I just cant thank you enough for such a fun, relaxed, amazing day. I wish you both a life time of health, love, laughter (and Sahara’s ;))

We don’t know much about you Jade, what can you tell us about yourself?

We don’t know much about you Jade, what can you tell us about yourself?

Bride-to-be FAQ – Q: We don’t know much about you Jade, what can you tell us about yourself?

A: Im not one of these photographers that will tell you I love coffee (because I don’t drink it) and do handy crafts on a Sunday… Lets be honest if I don’t have a wedding on a Sunday, Im on the road travelling, and then downloading, backing up and starting to work on Saturdays wedding.

Im very practical and just say it like it is…

I was raised in the country, in small town called Ceduna; which I still call home, and think I always will. And ok, I wasn’t the girly girl who played dress ups and played with barbies. I rode horses and played in the dirt. I wasn’t the little girl that planned my dream wedding, I have never been the girl that bought wedding magazines dreaming about my wedding. I guess being a romantic at heart has made be fall hard for weddings. I just love, LOVE.

I can ‘Mcguiver’ a lot of things – if something is broken, just find me a paperclip and some twine, I’ll sort it! I am a bit of a perfectionist, which has it pros and cons but I will go with more pros!

I will tell you that I am a fanatic for tennis and netball, and as much as I love the beach, I don’t get there enough. I love animals and my family means the world to me, whether that is blood family or friends I choose to be family.

I’m told I have an infectious laugh and I guarantee you I can make you laugh… Even is that means me just making a fool of myself to make you forget that the camera is even there!

I always have my music as loud as it can go in my car, I sing along of course, and have had the awkward moment when you’re singing the best song ever, as loud as you can… and your navigation system cuts in, stops the song and you hear yourself… eeekkkkk safe to say I quickly changed that setting!

Today I’m a wedding photographer living in between Ceduna and Adelaide. I shoot weddings and ensure your first day as husband and wife is etched in your hearts and minds as the best day of your lives. I’d love to chat more about the wedding of your dreams, so feel free to look around my website or simply send me an email for more information. You can read more about me here and here.

Amelia + Josh’s Mt Lofty Wedding

Amelia + Josh’s Mt Lofty Wedding

Amelia and Josh became husband and wife in gorgeous style at Mount Lofty House infront of a beautiful wooden arbor decorated with amazing florals that emulate the koala food that Amelia collects for her work. The weather had a few people on edge, it was sunny one minute and gloomy and raining the next. As Milly’s Dad walked her down the isle it was spitting with a little rain, but that didn’t dampen the moment. A few moments later the sun was shining as they kissed as Mr and Mrs Whitbread for the first time.

We really did have an absolute blast, so many laughs and hilarious moments. There was a magician entertaining guests while the bridal party had photos and before he left he came and performed a trick for the bride and groom.

I just loved that “Hank” their dog was featured on the cake topper, love love!! And I loved the surprise koala bowtie!

The next couple of days after the wedding I asked the couple to share with us their favourite moments from their wedding day…
Josh’s favourite moment/s was:
+Seeing Milly in her dress for the first time was pretty special. She looked beautiful
+Seeing the cake with the cake topper was pretty cool also seeing how all that came together because I wasn’t allowed to see the cake topper before hand as it had the imagine with Milly’ s dress.
+Spending time with close friends and family

Amelia’s favourite moments:
+The ceremony was a special moment as the sun came out just for our vows and looked amazing. Seeing my pop at the ceremony was also very special as he had been having health issues in recent months and it meant the world to have him there.
+Josh’s speech was also very special knowing how long he spent practicing and seeing how well he delivered it. I could never have done that!
+Another favourite moment was our first dance, we had a lot of fun with it and we loved our song.
+Another moment that involved the dance floor that night, we thought this was hilarious was that the dance floor began to break a part – our guest literally ripped up the dance floor hehehe

I can’t thank you both enough for allowing us to be part of your special day and we wish you health, love and happiness for the future.

Skye + Jeremy’s wedding

Skye + Jeremy’s wedding

Skye and Jeremy become husband and wife in classic style in the gorgeous Mount Lofty Botanic Gardens. Every moment and every detail were just perfect, from Skye’s brother playing as she walked down the isle to having their mothers do readings at the ceremony & grandparents as their witnesses.

I absolutely love “how we met” stories and learning more about Skye and Jeremy’s first meeting at a cousins 21stand early dating during the speeches was hilarious, loved the speeches, especially Jeremy’s brothers.

I asked about the proposal… Jeremy proposed on an isolated beach in Coffin Bay whilst they were on holiday. He had planned for a while and carried the ring around for the first few days of the trip until the perfect moment came up. Skye did not expect a proposal, they had discussed buying a house before getting married and were still saving for that. She was in shock & thought he was joking!

Thank you for allowing me to share in your first day as husband and wife, I wish you both all the very best for you future and hope you an uber great time on your month long South East Asia honeymoon.
