Lindsey and Stephen’s Wedding

Well…what can I say; I’m in love with Mclaren Vale! Rolling hills, wineries, sandstone cottages, and a gorgeous couple to photograph, what more could I ask for!! (Thanks again Paula and Andrew for recommending me to this lovely couple).

I started the day by photographing the bride, Lindsey, at Peppermint Cottage, a place I absolutely fell in love with. The dusky pink walls were a perfect backdrop for Lindsey’s beautiful ivory dress. Who could tell by the photo’s it was a 38 degree day! Lindsey seemed so cool, calm and collected.

Down the road at the old Bethany Chapel I met the groom, Stephen. The photos took place at a beautiful old church that had been converted into a B&B…..another awesome backdrop to work with! We decided to take full advantage of the countryside and go for a stroll down the road for some photos with his best man.

Lindsey and Stephen then met at Willunga Courthouse Museum for their ceremony (my favourite part of their day!) They seemed so happy to be finally standing together amongst family and friends.

After the ceremony, it was time for some photos around the old Courthouse. I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to photograph those amazing pebble stone rocks at the bridal party’s feet!

Before heading up to d’Arenberg Winery for their reception, Lindsey, Stephen and myself took a drive up to Willunga Hill (where the king of the mountain was sprayed for the “Tour down Under”). Steve, a keen cyclist, was eager to get a shot near the spray paint. What a fabulous idea!

To my amazement, this 38 degree day ended in a sun-shower followed by a beautiful golden sunset. I was in heaven – what amazing light! My favourite shot of the day would have to be Lindsey crouching down by her nephew Malcolm, with the beautiful bokeh sunset behind. His face says it all….he was having a great old time at this wedding!

Congratulations Lindsey and Steve – I wish you all the best! You are such a lovely couple….I hope next time I’m down in Adelaide again we can catch up for a drink (or two!).

    Not quite as good as being there, but will have to do! Lindsey – I see both your mom and your dad in your eyes, your face, your smile……. I see you all had a lovely day, with you and Stephen looking so happy to ‘have and behold’ each other. Best of life to you always.
