Claire and Damien did something pretty crazy. They decided to organise a wedding in Australia from a country on the other side of the world. Most people who’ve organised a wedding understand how difficult it is to do something like that locally, let alone from 20000km away. But they managed and their desire to have a celebration with plenty of awesome food and music with their friends and family in a beautiful place was fulfilled.
I’d never shot a wedding in South Australia before but I had been to the Adelaide Hills so I had an idea of how amazing a place it is. It was no different to what I remember it being; the golden sunshine of the afternoon made me yet again attempt to comprehend how awesome a job being a photographer is. Plus, Claire and Damien were so amazingly casual about pretty much everything. I’d never seen two people on their wedding day so in control yet so relaxed about things at the same time; obviously a tribute to the strength of their relationship and preparation before the day.
So here’s to more casual, relaxed and awesome weddings in South Australia surrounded by the wonder that is nature.
