Early in December 2014 I was chosen as Rebecca and Martin’s wedding photographer at their wedding taking place at Leonard’s Mill in Second Valley, to the South of Adelaide. Rebecca and Martin took advantage of my flexible hourly rates and had me cover 6 hours of their wedding. Their preparation venues were very close to one another or their Second Valley wedding, so I was able to cover a bit of both of their preparations as well as their ceremony and beginning of their reception. They chose to head down to the Second Valley beach for their glamour shots which I must say was a fantastic choice. I had never been down to the Second Valley jetty, and now I can’t wait to get back there.
Grooms men Preparation at Leonard’s Mill
The Grooms men were getting ready at the picturesque Leonard’s Mill in Second Valley. Leonard’s Mill was also going to be the location for Rebecca and Martin’s Ceremony and Reception. Leonard s Mill in Second Valley is a 150 year old heritage listed building that has been restored as a restaurant and the surrounds have been developed to include a range of accommodation units, some in restored stone settlers cottages which was where they were getting ready.
Bridal Preparation in Second Valley
The girls were getting ready in a family owned beach house in the Second Valley town near the beach. Eager for photos the girls were always smiling and practicing their dancing for the night ahead. The whole day was very laid back and I had a lot of fun with Rebecca and Martin because of it.
Leonard’s Mill, Second Valley Wedding Ceremony
The sun was very bright during the day, and the location that the wedding ceremony was set up in was not the most fantastic spot, both for photos nor the comfort of Rebecca and martin due to the heat and sun in their eyes from where they were standing.
Second Valley Wedding Photography
The Second Valley beach has so many awesome nooks and crannies to use in wedding photos, the beach with white sand and wonderful rocks are nearby and an epic walk along a cliff is right next to a beautiful jetty. I really hope to get back to Second Valley soon!
Leonard’s Mill, Second Valley Wedding Reception
Like I said before, Rebecca and Martin held their wedding reception at Leonard’s Mill, Second Valley. The same location as their wedding ceremony. All their locations were very close and very little travel was needed. Was good for their guests too as they could stay at Leonard’s Mill while we went off to take photos.
I’d like to thank Rebecca and Martin for having me as their wedding photographer for their Second Valley Wedding and I hope they enjoy their photographs as much as I enjoyed taking them.
