It was a stunning April day for Natasha and Sean’s wedding at the beautiful Silvestris of Clarendon garden! The day was filled with family joy, wonderful weather and even a cake that was flown on from interstate! Natasha and Sean opted to hold their wedding ceremony in the lovely little garden on site, then heading off to the nearby Riverbend reserve for photos before heading back to the Silvestris of Clarendon restaurant for their reception. I was asked to be their wedding photographer for their entire day, and I had a great time! 🙂
Sean was being prepared at a house in Morphett Vale, with his groomsmen and mother watching on. His heritage was on display for all to see with his Celtic cufflinks, and of course the wonderful kilts he and his groomsmen were wearing! It was quite a coincidence that apparently my mother had spent her youth highland dancing with Sean’s mother – which just goes to show how small Adelaide is!
Natasha was being prepared at the couple’s house nearby with her favorite movie of ‘Beauty and Beast’ playing in the background. The entire morning went very smoothly with only a slight delay with the bridal party leaving a little late due to Natasha’s hair taking a little longer than expected, but that’s the bride’s prerogative to be late! 🙂 Somehow they still beat me to Silvestris of Clarendon though, despite me leaving before them..
Silvestris of Clarendon Wedding Ceremony
The gardens of Silvestris of Clarendon were bursting with Autumnal colours which made the already wonderful garden that much more special. The famed dome made for an awesome backdrop to where Natasha and Sean chose to hold their ceremony, and the sun was in a great spot for some amazing lens flare 🙂
After the family photos were done on a terrace just below where the ceremony took place, we used the gardens – with a focus on the dome for some glamour photos before heading off to the nearby Riverbend Reserve to make use of the cliffs and Australiana surrounds for more photos.
Silvestris of Clarendon Wedding Reception
While I had been to Silvestris of Clarendon before to cover a wedding, I had not set foot in the wonderful restaurant that is also on site. It’s a wonderfully modern function room and restaurant with adjacent courtyard suitable for cocktails. The setting was resplendent and the service immaculate. A wonderful place to celebrate a wedding!
Thanks so much to Natasha and Sean for having me as your wedding photographer!
