13 Dec Brooke + James | Adelaide Hills Wedding at Pike and Joyce
Earlier this year I was fortunate enough to be chosen to photograph Brooke and Jame’s Adelaide Hills Wedding at Pike and Joyce Wines. Set on the highest peak of Lenswood, Pike and Joyce enjoys stunning, sweeping views across the Adelaide Hills and it’s pretty special to watch the light play its way across the rolling hills as the sun sets.
Their story if pretty cool, sounds a little like something out of Sex in the City to me, so if you have a few minutes to spare before scrolling to the pics below it’ll be worth your while –
From Brooke…”We like to think that we had a bit of a rom-com type of first meeting. We were in a crowded bar where we bumped into each other and had a random chat that we can’t quite remember. Before we got a chance to exchange numbers my friend whisked me away into a cab – but not without me throwing my business card out the window for James to catch. He Googled me the next day, sent me a Facebook message and after a 24-hour first date, we both agreed this could be something special. That was three years ago – and we’re pretty confident it is!
As expats in Dubai, the concept of ‘home’ is pretty important to us – mine in Australia and James’s in the UK, which is why his proposal was so special. We visited my beautiful home town of Renmark in August and during a boat cruise up the Murray River, he got down on one knee. It doesn’t get much better than floating down the river at sunset, a glass of bubbly in our hands (and a giant rock on my finger!)
To follow is a snippet of their beautiful day the way I saw it.
