Marielle and Brendan held their lunchtime Coriole Wines wedding on a sweltering hot day in mid December.
It was a fun, laid back day with both Marielle and Brendan keen to go with the flow with whatever happened on their day, and it turned out to be such a wonderful time!
After preparing at separate locations nearby, Marielle and Brendan opted for a first look where they met each other before the ceremony, all held on the delightful grassy area surrounding the Coriole Wines wedding venue.
Brendan was being prepared at a nearby rustic bed and breakfast cottage, set amongst some Australiana bushland. Unfortunate it seemed as though his two groomsmen had recieved a wrong timeline by which they should have also been on site – which meant that photos were mostly done solo for most of the morning before they showed up for the last few minutes.
Marielle and her bridal party were being prepared at a house in Port Noarlunga, alongside parents, little ones and furry friends. The atmosphere was a little rushed, trying to get everything done in time before having to head out for their Coriole Wines wedding ceremony.
That being said though, I feel as though everythiung was still very organised – particularly as we had to wait for the boys to show up at the wedding venue due to again not having the correct times.
First Look Photo shoot
Marielle and Brendan’s forst look photoshoot took place overlooking the famed Mclaren Vale wine region, and it’s one of the top reasons why anyone would want to hold their wedding at Coriole wines, the view is just spectacular!
Brendan and his boys were set up right at the edge of the grass, looking out at the view while Marielle and her bridal party were to sneak up and tap him on the shoulder.
After the first look we made use of what little time we still had before the ceremony was supposed to commence by heading down the driveway a little bit to take some glamour shots of the whole bridal aprty together and of course romantic shots of just Marielle and Branden.
Coriole Wines Wedding Ceremony
Marielle and Brendan’s Coriole Wines wedding ceremony was set up to take place under an arbour looking back down in the direction of the Coriole Wines’ driveway, however due to the extreme heat, their celebrant took the executive desicion at the beginning of their ceremony to move slightly to the right, and make use of the shade from the historic tree that then made the backdrop for their ceremony.
Their ceremony itself was a nice, simple affair with heartfelt vows read to one another and some guest speakers before being announced and walking back down the aise under a shower of rose petals.
After the ceremony, everyone was waiting about for the lunch time reception to take place out the rear of the Coriole building which was when we managed to take a few family photos and generally take it easy as the weather by this time was quite overbearing.
Thanks so much to Marielle and Branden for having me as your wedding photographer! I had a great time and I hope you enjoy your photos! 😀
