Kate + Rowie

When you meet a bride and can instantly see why the man she is marrying fell in love with her you know you are on a winning thing. Kate was all smiles and laughter when we first met over two years ago now. She was so relaxed and quietly excited about her big day. She spoke beautifully about Rowie her surfer beau who she was head over heels with and their chilled out vibe they wanted for their wedding. She was so warm, fun and well umm drop dead gorgeous that I knew shooting this day would be a dream. Plus she has extremely great taste in friends, Sarah her maid of honour was in a wedding I shot a year prior that had me swooning. Meeting Rowie was just as I imagined and over a coffee I got to see firsthand what I had already assumed, a love so fun and real that it would blow my socks off!

The wedding at Paxton Wines in Mclaren Vale was Ah-Mazing! The day was spectacular in every form. It was the kind of wedding you didn’t want to leave because it was so beautiful and fun… So I didn’t I actually stayed well past when I thought I was leaving because I couldn’t put my camera down and stop documenting this smashing day. It just exudes friendship, love and real beauty.

I hope you enjoy,

Kirsty + Shannon

What you are about to see is serious photo overload…. There are lots! I struggled to cut them down to this many as there was easily another 50 I could have shared with you. I blame Shannon and Kirsty for being so funny and photogenic. There wedding was such a laugh and the entire bridal party knew how to strike a pose or twenty! With these two in the pictures and the backdrop of Oliver’s Chaff Shed in Mclaren Vale, The Victory Hotel, Silver Sands Beach and Port Willunga beach you couldn’t go wrong. We also stopped off at Oscar’s where Shannon popped the question to grab a few quick photos.

The entire day was a blast, Kirsty and Shannon chose a perfect location for a fun affair and the Pizza was delish!

I’m going to keep the writing short today as these photos speak for themselves, hope you enjoy them.
