The Royal South Australian Yacht Squadron – or abbreviated to RSAYS – was the venue for Emily and Leigh’s wedding on a beautifully sunny day – perfectly suited for such a nautical themed place! I was asked to be their wedding photographer for 3 hours which saw me at Emily’s preparation at a rental house on the foreshore, through to the beginning of their reception within the RSAYS boat house.


I started my coverage with the preparation of Emily and her family getting ready at a rental house on the beach front. The atmosphere was laid back, with the usual run around when there are children involved 🙂 Thankfully there were a lot of people on hand to deal with their shenanigans and everything went very smoothly.

RSAYS Wedding Ceremony

Emily and Leigh’s ceremony took place on the decking in front of the Royal South Australian Yacht Club’s clubhouse as the weather was quite warm and sunny. The idea being that the ceremony could take place in the shade. The guests were easily able to make use of the nearby bar and stay in the shade while we wandered about taking photos.

After the ceremony we wasted little time in using the RSAYS marina to take a few photos of the bridal party and newly formed young family walking around the moored yachts, and of course the wonderfully rustic boat house. Emily and Leigh’s reception was to be held within the boat house so it was already set up with tables and chairs – thankfully it wasn’t too hard to move them out the way for a few photos. We also managed to gte a little bit of time along the nearby beach and jetty.

I’d like to thank Emily and Leigh for having me as their wedding photographer and I hope they enjoy their photos!
