I have the pleasure of photographing quite a few weddings at Glen Ewin Estate each year, but until Rachel and Lachie's wedding I'd not photographed one in the relatively new Gatehouse venue within the grounds. It's great ! Really enjoyed the contrast from the Pulpshed which is the original building on the grounds. We had a great day and got really lucky with the weather. To follow are some of my favourites from their day..

  Very cool wedding.Make-up was verrrrry behind schedule. I got a phone call from Sarah at 11.50 on my way to see Michelle at 12,...'we are running a little behind'. So I ended up sending my assistants in my car to the church at 1 (ceremony was meant to start at 1.30) and I waited behind to grab what shots I could of Michelle frantically getting ready - she made it to the house and her hanging dress at about 12.45. I think she dealt with it really well and she had a good nervous chuckle about it. I was lucky enough to get a ride in the bridal car with her and her dad too, which was a privilege. All worked out well in the end and we were only about 20 minutes late...pretty standard really :-) Ceremony was super cool. Andrew, had written a song and proceeded to tap away on the piano and sing it to the congregation (well probably more to Michelle I think) and there was a heap of other great tunes belted out by the band during  the rest of the ceremony too. It was a little windy and wild although for a July day it rated pretty well I thought. All were brave and we enjoyed a bit of a roam around town, scaled a fancy new building in the city centre for a different perspective. I hope you like. Comments most welcome. Oh yeh, if you click on an image it'll open bigger and you can flick through them that way..

It's a crazy thing how paths cross over time. I met Bev while working up in Falls Creek as a pimply faced 20 year old. My memories are somewhat vague of this time of my life...a few too many beverages and bumps on the head I think....But I did remember meeting Bev ! Both Bev and Matt have a great energy about them and we had a lot of fun capturing their wedding. A few of their friends were people I still keep in touch with so it was an added bonus to be able to share a beer at the reception with them all. The wedding ceremony was held at Sacred Heart Chapel, a stunning church surrounded by lovely manicured grounds and then the reception kicked on at the Somerton Surf Lifesaving Club on the beach-front of Somerton - can't go wrong really. A great sunset and a great bunch of people.

A Waverley Estate wedding experience by Adelaide Wedding Photographer Luke Simon.... This was my first experience of a Waverley Estate wedding. What a venue. Truly superb. I'm sure it does not always look as lovely as it did on the day of Catherine and Jim's wedding though. They had gone to a lot of effort in the days leading up to their big day to make sure it was as they had imagined. Catherine designed her dress and as you can see, looked bloody superb and beautiful. I met with Catherine and Jim in a Norwood restaurant about 18 before their wedding. I later discovered that before entering the restaurant to meet with me that Jim had turned to Catherine and said - "now let's not get too excited in here, lets check out his work, have a chat and go away and do some more research etc.." Our meeting didn't quite go that way for them though. I'm not sure if it was the 2 bottles of wine we drank or that we all just got along like a house on fire, but I was really excited that they had booked me before they left that night -both because they are genuinely as lovely as they appear in these photos and because the day they had planned sounded so fun. Anyway, the gods were really kind, the weather was so perfect - a crisp, clear autumn day with a light offshore breeze. It was an emotional wedding, lots of tears, lots of laughter. I had an absolute ball as I think the images show and I'd welcome your thoughts too.  Oh yeah, if you want to see the small images big, just click on it. Cheers.

Carrie and Andrew's wedding was simple and elegant, relaxed and natural and they wanted their wedding images to portray this equally. The ceremony was held under big pines on the banks of the River Torrens and the Reception was held on the opposite bank of the river at Jolly's Boathouse - a lovely reception venue, cosy and inviting. Here are a few snippets from their day...

Well, I could not be much more excited. I'm writing to you from my new desk. Looking out from my balcony window I can see and hear the hustle and bustle of passing cars and buses, smell the fresh coffee wafting up the from the numerous cafe's and see the many bride's-to-be out shopping for their dream dress at one of the many bridal shops along this street. I'm in my new studio/office...yippeeeeee ! You will now find us at Level 1, Suite 3, 155 King William Road Hyde Park (pictures to follow soon). Still lots to do - need to get some prints on the walls and there is no signage up as yet but it will be within a few weeks. So, give me a buzz if you are passing by and we can grab a coffee ! It's gonna be a massive year for Luke Simon Photography, with exciting new albums in design with the best album company in the world. We've also got a new staff member on board. Pip has spent the last 3 years working for one of the largest commercial photography studios in Adelaide and will be working closely with me on album designing, post production and generally keeping me in line. She brings a wealth of experience in studio management and photography to the team and I'm stoked to have her on board.
