It was one of the first real warm days of the year on the day of Angela and Don’s wedding that took place at the Glenelg Golf Course. I was asked to be their wedding photographer from their preparation through to the end of their reception and it was an awesome day to be a part of! The weather was awesome all day, which brought some good and bad situations during the day, but it all worked out in the end! 😀
Don and his groomsmen were being prepared in a room at the Grand on the Glenelg foreshore – it was quite a simple affair with good natured jibes being thrown at one another while getting ready in the room. After everyone was dressed we went for a bit of a walk nearby the beach for some different, scenic shots.
I arrived at the bridal place of preparation to the tune of Frozen’s ‘Let it go’ anthem playing in the background as Angela and Don’s little flower girl was running about watching and singing while trying to help out with whatever she could 🙂 To keep her entertained the girls would play a bit of ‘whats the time Mr.Wolf?’ Which is always fun.
Glenelg Golf Course Wedding Ceremony
The Glenelg Golf Course has a little grassy area off set from the nearby practice greens specifically allocated for holding wedding ceremonies. It’s a large enough area to hold larger sized wedding parties while having a backdrop of a few trees in front of a nearby fairway. Angela and Don’s wedding ceremony was a short, sweet affair, complete with personal readings from family members and fun shenanigans when Don went to kiss Angela while signing the registry. Some of the kids also found it fun to throw copious amounts of petals over Angela 🙂
After the group photos which we took in front of their bridal car, we used the car, and a rather powerful looking bubble machine(!) in a few photos at the Golf Course itself, before heading off towards the Grange beach and it’s Jetty. Unfortunately on the drive down there we soon realised that due to it being one of the first really warm days of the Summer, everyone in Adelaide had the same idea! The roads were packed with beach goers and we ended up heading to the closer Henley Beach Jetty. A bit of photoshop went into removing all the people in the background in some of their beach shots! What we got though I think I was happy wth and Angela and Don were keen to get away from the crowds as quickly as possible.
Glenelg Golf Course Wedding Reception
We then head back to the Glenelg Golf Course for Angela and Don’s reception in their very neat reception hall. The entire night was boisterous with the dance floor only being vacant for very short periods, while Angela and Don’s little flower girl really stole the limelight where she treated the entire party to a cute rendition of Frozen’s ‘Let it Go’. Don also made waves by borrowing the DJ’s kilt! Was a very fun night.
Thanks so much to Angela and Don for having me as your wedding photographer, I’m so pleased I was about to cover your wedding and I hope you enjoy your wedding photos! 😀
