What's more important to you when it comes to your wedding day? Is it having a stunning dress, a historic church for the ceremony, a beautiful venue with mouth watering food or having your friends and family with you and spending time with them. This pretty much depicts Adrian and Jenn's Bridgewater mill wedding in Adelaide. Adrian and Jenn planned their wedding from London were they live, they chose to have the wedding in Adrian's home town of Adelaide with friends and family flying in from all around the world. I arrived a day earlier in the morning which gave me time to look around and have dinner with a few of their friends and family at a local pub, check it out in part 1.
I travelled out to Adrian’s parents house on the day of the wedding, to their beautifully restored biscuit factory nestled in the hills surrounding Adelaide. A photographers dream to just walk the gardens of this place and to walk in side…….well lets just say I loved it. After a strong coffee we prepared Adrian for the day ahead.
Leaving Adrian I headed over to where Jenn was getting ready, Jenn had described the church to me but I had no idea it would look like this. As I drove down the tree lined street of inner city Adelaide another nestled building was spotted, the converted apartments of St Mary’s Church. The girls where all excited and sorting out last minute details, table plans and nails, you know how it goes. Jenn was glowing and happy with a beautiful big smile that radiated the room, she looked absolutely stunning in her Canadian designed Paloma Blanca dress. She was expecting her mother to cry but mum fought back the tears.
Generally speaking I like to leave about 30 minutes before the bride to get to the church, find a park and catch the late comers and also a few of Adrian nervously waiting. St Andrew’s church of Walkerville was the location of the ceremony another historical landmark in Adelaide. I visited the church the day before on my location scouting and got the full rundown on the churches history including the imported stain glass windows from Whitefriars in England dating back to 1895. The light coming through the front doors was beautiful and made for some of my favourite images.
Because there are so many images I want to share with you from their wedding I have had to split the wedding over three posts, sorry:)
