It was a wet and windy day for Tamika and Blake’s wedding at the Stamford Grand Glenelg, but it certainly didn’t dampen the celebrations! Due to the weather, the plan for the day had to be changed slightly. The original plan was to take advantage of the famous Glenelg foreshore for Tamika and Blake’s wedding ceremony, but due to the weather, their ceremony took place in one of the Grand’s Banquet halls. The weather was typical of the recent wild weather we’ve had in Adelaide over the last few weeks, as only the day before I was the wedding photographer at another Glenelg wedding and it was sunny. Despite the weather though, Tamika and Blake made the most of it and we took some neat photos in the rain.


Blake was prepared at a house in Noarlunga Downs, the atmosphere was cool and relaxed with the boys simply waiting to be told to get dressed :). I was actually half expecting to be accosted by snakes and other reptiles, as Tamika and Blake own a reptile house in the south. One of the things they asked me at our meeting before the wedding was if I was ok around reptiles as they were going to integrate them into their ceremony. I think due to the weather they abandoned that idea though. Blake and his boys had a bit of fun posing in front of some mean looking machinery in the shed out back and they look great!
