Anna & Peter’s Wedding – Part 1

In November I was lucky enough to photograph an Australian Chinese wedding. I hadn’t had any experience with Asian wedding photography before, but I couldn’t wait to experience all of their traditions. Anna and Peters wedding was held over 2 days, and it’s was an early start to a long couple of days, but each event and tradition at an Asian wedding is so beautiful and special. The red double happiness symbol was displayed, on the walls, in more than one location, there was also a giant foam red double happiness symbol and it was also featured on Peters cuff links.

On the first day, before the ceremony Anna and Peter decided to do a first look which I just LOVED.  ‘First look’ photos are where the bride and groom have a moment to themselves before the big moment (caught on camera of course!).  I love the extra emotion that I get from first look wedding photos, where both the bride and the groom can really let their guard down (and let tears flow!) because they aren’t in front of a big audience.

We then headed off to some wineries in Mclaren Vale, Port Willunga beach and then to Veale Gardens on south tce for bridal party photos. Late afternoon Anna and Peter had a typical wedding ceremony in a gorgeous park. The bride wore a strapless silk wedding dress and her bridesmaid wore a brilliant royal blue dress. The same blue was in the groomsmen ties as well as the bridal bouquet. There was lots of laughter, tears and happiness from the bride and groom and their family, it was so special!
