Verity + Tom

On the 2nd day of Christmas my true love gave to me two pink flamingos and a macaroon wedding tree.

It’s 6am and as the sun rises and the birds chirp I am awake and bursting at the seams to show you Tom + Verity’s wedding that was held at their farm. Held in their converted wood shed and set into a backdrop of rolling hills and glistening pink and yellow fields this wedding was an absolute dream. The detail gave Lochie and I hours of fun to photograph and so did kids who played merrily on hay bails and amongst the trees. Everywhere you looked there was a detail to admire, a view to take in or an expression to capture. It was my kind of wedding, in fact its probably the closest wedding that I have attended or photographed to what I would do on my big day, and yes I may be taking an idea or twenty from you guys.

This wedding truly captured the love these two have for each other and those who attended. Everyone who was invited was also involved, from making flower wreaths for the girls to wear in their hair, everyone who camped out for the weekend, to all the musicians and bands being friends of the couple (special mention to the ukulele group, you girls were a hit). You could feel the love on this land and that this day was about a celebration of two people who open their arms wide, invest themselves and love deeply.

From the stroll to the top of the hill to the ceremony and the bride and groom arriving on a tractor to bands playing on the back of a pick up truck while friends laughed around bon fires every moment of this day had soul and was a dream to be part of… So forgive this very long blog post I couldn’t  choose between all the photos!

Sarah + Sean

I was like a giddy school girl at Sean + Sarah’s wedding!!!! Everywhere I looked there was something to photograph. Sarah and her amazing friends outdid themselves with how simply beautiful this wedding was. When I arrived at Sarah’s parents house I could hear laughter and the mood was so warm and relaxed. Abby Sarah’s childhood dog sat dutifully at her side as the final touches were added to her hair and make up. As I mentioned there was a lot of laughter and it only grew louder as everyone piled on the bed to have a groups pic just as the slats gave way! Sarah shone as a bride in white and walking down the aisle to her husband to be Sean was one of the most beautiful sights.

I dont thing they could have chosen a more perfect location. Woodhouse in Piccadilly had so much to offer and made photographing these two a treat but the real credit goes to Sarah. With her thoughtful details that adorned the tables. Antique type writers with words of love, rustic doors as a creative seating chart, milk bottles for the guests to enjoy home made punch and my favourite of all Myrtle and May Traveling Refreshments there to give all the guests a cafeine boost. Not only did it make for a dream to photograph but each piece was meaningful to the couple like their LOVE for coffee, gentle reflection of their beliefs and even jiminy cricket hidden in their wedding cake.

It was such a special day and one I truly enjoyed being a part of.

Jessica + Dan

Its been a long and lovely journey to Dan and Jess’s wedding day, filled with extra large cups of tea and cuddles with their gorgeous dog buddy. I knew with a setting like Mt lofty house and a couple as sweet as Dan and Jess this wedding would be one I would adore and boy did I… Jess smile lit up my camera all day and that night her gorgeous hand made candles lit up the reception. The day was filled with personal touches, sweet notes, even sweeter words and a sense that this was one of those love stories that will last forever.

From when I opened the door to a room full of topless boys in bow ties to when the couple waves as adu I don’t think I stopped laughing or smiling… A fantastic and funny bridal party saw to that (and a self appointed neighbourhood watch man that made our railway station shots even more memorable). I am thrilled to show you this treat of a wedding and hope you enjoy it… Oh and if you want your house to be lit up with some gorgeous little candles check out Bird in Cage


Nicola + Dan

Dan and Nicola’s wedding was an absolute joy to photograph. From when we rocked up to Tempest to get some shots of the girl getting their hair and make up done we were in creative overload. We meaning myself and my assistant Lochie who came along to capture the detail and candid moments of the day. Nicola’s custom made dress was an absolute knockout as were the bridesmaids in brilliant blue.

Golding’s winery was the perfect backdrop to this heartfelt ceremony that incorporated Nicola’s Jewish heritage. From the I do’s we escaped to the vines for some photos before dancing the night away in what was a truly beautiful day.

I hope you enjoy,



Kimberley + Darren

I apologise in advance for the overload of cute little children with pretty posies, beautiful blooms in brown mason jars, candles floating in mid air, polishing cars and playful pups, laughs and giggles by loved ones and a bride and groom that lit up my camera.

Kimberley and Darren’s had all these things and more! The day teed off with me getting a few golfing and car maintinence tips from the groom and his best men and I got to play with Indie the couples gorgeous little pup. It got even better as I headed over to the girls where there was nothing but smiles and laughter. The ceremony was divine and if I wasnt snapping the bride and groom gazing into each others eyes I was snapping the kids who were to cute not to photograph.

The couples reception at Golding’s Winery was one of the prettiest I have ever seen. I was in love with the details that were so creatively though out and painstakingly put together (hanging all those candles took some effort by some amazing bridesmaids and family).

The entire day was a treat and one I am happy to share with you. Enjoy,

Carly xoxo
