These days I don’t often shoot Adelaide church wedding photos, but the first time I met Mel & Vozz over a glass of wine at mothervine, I knew we would click so well on their wedding day. As much as I try to show my personality on my website, it’s because of this that I love a face to face meeting. It was here I discovered the true nature of their relationship. It was one built on a lot of fun, and a connection that runs straight to the heart. You see, when they first met, Mel was not into David. But his persistence, romanticism and sheer cheek, won her over. We got to know each other better in an engagement session (you can see it here) and it was the beautiful images we created that gave them the confidence to let me have full creative control over their photos. And when I say control, it’s almost a letting go.
After documenting the nerves of getting read and a beautifully traditional church ceremony, David shed some tears as he saw his bride come down the aisle ( I LOVE THIS!). Some quick family photos after the ceremony and it was time to take some snaps before the reception.
We found some cool places where we could stroll, grab a drink and generally have a good time. We took a few snaps at the church, then over to Hains & Co. at gilbert place, where the bridal party could grab some refreshments while we took some snaps of them interacting. It’s all about keeping the natural flow of your day going – without taking you away from your family and friends and letting you get back to the party. It was so much fun getting to hang out with these guys, they really know how to throw down – the best part? An epic party at the State Library of South Australia – who knew books could rock so hard?
