It was a super sunny day at the famed St Francis Winery in Old Reynella for Angela and Josh’s intimate, family wedding. I was asked to be their wedding photographer for 4 hours on their special day, which saw me at their wedding from just before their ceremony through to the beginning of their reception. The entire day was super laid back, with family and friends on hand to help make the day a memorial one for the happy couple.
Before the Ceremony
Before the ceremony I was wondering around the grounds, avoiding Angela getting ready as per request, taking photos of the personalised set up that Angela and Jash had prepared earlier. Running around after the kids was also fun. 🙂 Putting on little suits seems like the worst thing in the world!
St Francis Winery Wedding Ceremony
Thankfully the wedding ceremony, set up overlooking the pond that St Francis has on it’s grounds, was under the shade of the nearby trees just in time for the ceremony to commence, so this allowed for a little bit of a reprieve from the sun.
Directly after the ceremony and family photos, we wandered around the grounds and made use of the lovely willow trees lining the pond. On sunny days like this these trees make for an incredible backdrop and makes producing whimsical, fairytale wedding photography that much easier! As we finished up, I knew Josh was a bit of a car nut, and his car wasn’t in any of his photos yet! So what better way to include it than by blowing it up with a bit of photoshop? 🙂
St Francis Winery Wedding Reception
Angela and Josh had set up garden games for their guests on the grassy area just behind where their ceremony took place so that their guests would have something to do while they waited for the reception to start, so I was having fun taking photos of people enjoying the games quite a bit. Once the reception started, people started relaxing and lighting up cigars while I was leaving.
It was a great day for me, and I hope Angela and Josh enjoy their photos! 🙂
