The first of November saw me chosen as the wedding photographer for Carly and Tony’s beautiful, simple Inglewood Inn Wedding. The day was perfect from the weather to the lovely people involved. Carley and Tony were very laid back people, and their wedding really reflected it. They took advantage of my flexible hourly rate, which saw me with them for 4 hours, just enough time for me to still cover both their preparation, and their ceremony. This was the second Inglewood Inn wedding I covered, with the first Inglewood Inn wedding being Ben and Jess’ wedding. An Inglewood Inn wedding is a treat as a photographer as it’s such a pretty spot with a range of very photogenic scenes great for wedding photography.
I was only afforded 30 minutes with the groomsmen for their preparation, and really the only worry I had for the guys was that it was going to be very warm for them in their jackets. The day was very sunny and quite warm. But other than that, the guys seemed very relaxed and accommodating.
The bridal party was getting ready only a short hop, skip, and a jump away from the groomsmen, so I had about an hour with the girls as they got ready. Again, the atmosphere was quite relaxed with the only hiccup being that the men around couldn’t tie their ties.
Inglewood Inn Wedding Ceremony
As Carley and Tony live nearby, the Inglewood Inn was apparently a frequent local hangout for the couple. I can see why too, as the Inglewood Inn is a wonderful spot. As I said before being asked to cover a wedding at the Inglewood Inn is quite an easy assignment for a wedding photographer such as myself.
The Inn itself was established in 1857 as a stopping place along the new North Eastern Road. The route for a new North Eastern Road out of Adelaide was planned in 1854. As it bypassed the village of Houghton, where travellers had previously stopped at the Travellers Rest Inn, a new resting place was needed to break the journey to Gumeracha. Once the Inn was built, the small township took its name from the hotel, around which the settlement grew.
Inglewood Inn Glamour shots
After the ceremony, we had around an hour to walk around the grounds to take some glamour shots. Carley and Tony chose to stick to the pedicured gardens and building.
I’d like to thank Carley and Tony for being so easy to work with at their beautiful Inglewood Inn wedding. I had a lot of fun, and I hope they like my photographs as much as I enjoyed taking them!
