Scott & Casey’s Wedding was an injection of colour into my Wedding Season. From the colourful characters that made up the day, to the socks, flowers and locations we visited.
I began with the lads, who were the usual cool calm and collected. Secretly underneath Scott may have been nervous, though he didn’t show it.
Over with the girls and the mood was similar, though you could tell Casey was jumping out of her skin with excitement. She wore an ear-to-ear grin that was ever-present and a true reflection of how joyful she was. Casey wore a stunning Jack Sullivan gown with plenty of layers for the wind to play with (as you’ll see later in the blog). She also had two pairs of shoes, an idea that she’d snaffled from a friend to ensure comfort as the day wore on.
Over to the Ceremony, which was held in Botanic Park under the cool shade of the Morton Bay Figs. With multiple Weddings in the park and gardens, their signage was vital to ensure the right people attended. Traffic congestion saw our bride fashionably late and gave breathing space to guests running a little behind.
Their lovely Celebrant, Cecila White, conducted a sincere and heartfelt service in front of nearest and dearest. At the conclusion Casey received a fist full of surprise petals to the face from her Mum. A great way to kick off the congratulations. Family photos followed and we then went into the Botanic Gardens for a few pics before departing to our alternate locations.
Scott and Casey had seen one of my past Weddings with graffiti street art, but wanted their own twist. We discovered the murals of Little Rundle Street and so this became one of our stops. Casey’s bouquet was the perfect accessory against the colourful walls and the wind tunnel effect of the alley made for some interesting shots.
The other stop was Victoria Park Racecourse, home to the pedal prix and essentially how these two came to meet.
Photos out the way, it was then back in the cars and up the hill to their venue – The Adelaide Hills Convention Centre. At the Reception, I did a quick whip around of the lower level setup before guests were seated and the newlyweds announced. It was then my time to go, but I always knew this Wedding was going to be fun.
