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.

An awesome bunch of people who were not at all phased by the rain that decided to make its presence felt just as Bridgett reached her hubby-to-be. It chucked it down and we all kinda stood around with no-one wanting to make the call...the rain made our minds up for us, as it was just too heavy to put up with. So, after a quick little sprint to cover the ceremony continued and all was cosy and well. Bridgett and George really set me at ease from day dot. So relaxed and happy to go along with things as they unfolded. It all worked out really well, the gods were kind enough to stop raining on us for about an hour so we could duck out for some fun and bridal party pics around the beautiful Glen Ewin Estate grounds.
