The Wedding of Mark and Kylie sat in my diary for an eternity. Kylie is one of my organised brides who locked in all the important vendors early on. Still… time waits for nobody and the day soon rolled around. It was the March long weekend, when mother nature decided to treat Adelaide with a wintery blast of wind and rain. The lads got ready at the couples house with the Groom ridiculously chilled out!! Even his Groomsmen were commenting on how relaxed Mark was. Kylie sought the comfort of her family home and all the chaos that went with it. Her Allure Romance gown sat in the lounge room window as everyone else scrambled for a place to get dressed. Finally, it was Kylie’s turn and the transformation took place beneath her parents Wedding Photo in the loungeroom. Outside, rain continued to fall as it had all morning. I jumped in the car and took off to Partridge House for their indoor Ceremony. Guests waited patiently in a tightly packed formation and the Groom casually mingled. Our bride wasn’t far away and made the dash indoors, but slowed her pace for the walk down the aisle. The dusty pink hues in the wallpaper perfectly complimented Kylie’s blush gown and the scene was set. Fiona Talbot officiated their nuptials in a sincere and loving service. At the conclusion, the Mum’s were invited to sign the register as two families became united. Guests then lined the verandah with rose petals in hand to shower the newlyweds. With a break in the rain, we briefly took the family photos outdoors. Drizzle returned and sent the bridal party beneath the shelter of the Oak Tree and furthermore indoors. It was as shame that we couldn’t utilise the gardens, but the opulent windows inside drenched in soft light were a stunning alternative. We then headed for the Reception at The Lakes Resort. As the bridal party checked in, I floated about capturing room shots and table setting details. Guests then arrived, with the bridal party shortly after, to enjoy an evening of food and festivities. There was plenty to keep them occupied from the Chocolate Fountains (yes there were two), to the Photobooth and all the formalities in between. After the first dance, it was time for this wet and weary photographer to leave. If I had to sum up this couple in one word, it would be appreciative. From the paid vendors, to the family and friend contributions… nothing was lost on Mr and Mrs E!!
