I had the great pleasure of shooting a wedding a few weeks back — my first since I’ve moved to Melbourne, actually! I didn’t realise how much I took Adelaide’s sunny weather for granted until a week out of RB & Nathan’s wedding when I was checking the weather every day crossing my fingers for sunshine. Luckily the bridal party got ready at the beautiful Windsor Hotel so I was pretty confident that we’d be able to get some amazing interior shots even if the clouds rolled in.
I’ve walked past the Windsor a million times since I moved here, but this was my first time inside. It’s one of the oldest hotels in the city, and it was full of rich colours and warm leather…so much fun to shoot in. I highly recommend it. Both bridal parties got ready here, but everyone was coordinated to make sure the bride and groom didn’t accidentally bump into each other! The closest they got was posing on either side of this pillar so they could hold hands, but not see each other.
The bride is a nurse and I actually met her at the hospital when I was having blood taken. I’ve been a needlephobic for as long as I can remember, but lately I have to have blood tests every three months so I’m slowly coming to grips with the idea. RB was so sweet and patient my first time, even when I was so scared I was about an inch away from leaping out of the chair and tearing out of the hospital altogether. (Who am I kidding…this is me literally every single time.)
Although the pressure is on…bad photos and my next jab might be more vicious than usual!!
I’ve been psyched about these photos ever since, because I knew she’d be a dream to photograph. Weddings are always fun to shoot because literally nobody looks bad on their wedding day, but some brides are next-level. Look at her serving this amazing face game:
Hope you guys are having a ball on your honeymoon and eating some amazing food!! It was truly a pleasure being a part of your wedding.
