There was no better place to be than the beach for Helen and Simon’s stunning wedding ceremony out the front of the Adelaide Sailing Club House. The weather was absolutely stunning, not too hot or cold, and the wind was just enough to make you feel like you were beach side! Helen and Simon’s family had travelled long distances in some cases in order to celebrate their union together and a more happy family is very hard to come by. 🙂 I was asked to be their wedding photographer from their ceremony through to the sunset, and we got some great shots in front of the sun that’s for sure!

Adelaide Sailing Club Wedding Ceremony

Helen and Simon’s ceremony took place on the large grassy area out the front of the Adelaide Sailing Club house. The grassy area meets the body of water and small beach held within the artificial rocks that make up the boat ramp catchment area of the sailing club. Quite fortuitously on the same day as their wedding, there was a sailing regatta on in the background, so there was a lovely display of small sailing boats cruising about on the waters just behind where Helen and Simon’s ceremony took place. It was a lovely sight to behold.

Glamour Photos

After the family photos had been completed, we head off first to the rocks lining the small catchment area for some glamour photos before heading over to the Grange Jetty a short drive away. I love heading to the Grange foreshore as the sand dunes there make for some lovely photos, and under the jetty make for some very interesting photos.

Adelaide Sailing Club Wedding Reception

helena nd Simon’s reception took place back at the Sailing Club where their main function area was used. The function room is large enough to hold quite a few people, and is equipped with a large dance floor and private bar. It’;s a really nice spot to celebrate a wedding, while also watching the sunset over West Beach during a reception.

We couldn’t hang around in the reception while there was a stunning sunset going on, so Helen, Simon and I went out to make use of it on the beach. The tide had come in significantly since their ceremony so our first choice of location for these photos could not be used, but we made do with the beach on the other side of the club – the only issue being the amount of seaweed on the beach, but the photos still turned out great 🙂

Thanks so much Helen and Simon for having me capture your wedding photography! 😀
