The Wedding of Andrew & Caitlin occurred one sunny Friday in January.
I began my day at Caitlin’s family home in the Adelaide Hills. I arrived to final make up preparations, cars being polished and an air of excitement. Caitlin is the eldest of four girls, so naturally her three bridesmaids would be her younger sisters. They all looked stunning and were the apple of their parents eyes.
On this occasion, my bride and groom had been managing a long distance relationship. Andrew made the pilgrimage over from Geelong with plenty of family and friends. The thing that I love about Andrew is his ability to look cool and suave, but make him smile and it’s a different story. He was like the Cheshire Cat and even more so once his beautiful bride arrived.
A religious Ceremony was planned for this union at a church in the Southern Suburbs. Caitlin’s grandfather is the local pastor. Over the many years, he has united his daughters, and now the first granddaughter, in marriage. This was truly a family touch bordering upon tradition.
Once the formalities were finalised, the bride and groom were farewelled with a rose petal shower and send off. They drove off in one of two classic Jags, the pride of Caitlin’s Dad and one of his mates. Our destination was Mount Lofty House for some photos leading into the Reception.
The couple wisely chose this as the opportunity for some alone time. We managed to get some lovely images before everyone else arrived.
Photos continued as we captured family and bridal party, before heading into the Reception. It was here that our newlyweds joined their guests, grace was said and the feast began. I made my exit, feeling very lucky to have captured this sweet union.
