I was lucky enough to be the wedding photographer for Ashleigh and Corey’s Glanville Hall wedding in Sempahore at the end of August. I was asked to provide 3 hours worth of coverage which saw me there from before their ceremony right through to part of their reception, all on site at Glanville House. The weather held out just long enough to keep everyone dry before the rain set in later that night.
Before the ceremony
I arrived as I usually do rather early, so early in fact I was surprised to see Corey and some of his family standing about pretty much ready for Ashleigh to arrive any minute! Thankfully that wasnt for over an hour yet, but it just showed how eagre Corey was to get married! 😀
Glanville Hall Wedding Ceremony
There was a bit of a story behind the reason why Ashleigh and Corey were wed under the backdrop of the lovely Glanville Hall in Semaphore, as unfortunately their booked wedding venue nearby in Glenelg unfortunately went bankrupt only weeks prior to their wedding date, so it was very lucky such a venue was free on the same date! Glanville Hall is a stunning historic venue dating back to the early days of Adelaide settlement, and apparently there were family ties with the house itself amongst Ashleigh and Corey’s family so it all turned out to be a pretty neat spot to be married!
Their ceremony took place on the lawn, out the front of the historic house, with the congregation looking on as Ashleigh walked around the lawn to reach the front of the house. It was a fairly simple ceremony which was highlighted by the cute antics of the newly wed couple’s little boys 🙂
Glanville Hall Wedding Glamour Photos
Once the family photos were over, we spent around 30 minutes walking around the house looking for vantage points for some quick glamour photos before the sun began to hide behind the rapidly amassing clouds. The lack of sun in the afternoon made for a much more moody atmosphere and worked well with the famed tree out the back of the house.
Glanville Hall Wedding Reception
Achleigh and Corey’s reception took place in the dining hall within the manor which had just enough room for their congregation, including a nice little dance floor where they had their first dance before I had to leave.
Thanks so much for having me Ashleigh and Corey! Hope you enjoy your photos.
