Ten22 Wedding – Julia & Daniel
It was a day filled with love, laughter, and some unexpected twists and turns. My wife and I had the privilege of capturing the beautiful union of Julia and Daniel on their wedding day.
They had planned to exchange vows in the picturesque Adelaide Botanic Gardens, but Mother Nature had different plans. With bad weather rolling in, they had to make a last-minute decision to move their ceremony to Ten22, which was also the venue for their reception, which was certainly convenient!
Daniel was getting ready at a house in Reynella East, which was conveniently close to Malbeck Drive Park. We took advantage of the nearby park for a few photos before heading to the ceremony. It was a great spot with plenty of greenery and a relaxed vibe.
Julia was getting ready with her family closer to the city. The entire time spent here was quite relaxed and easy going, with the added bonus of being teared to a delightful lunch put on by Julia’s mother. There was a sense of calm and joy that filled the air. It was the perfect start to a perfect day.
One fun tidbit of trivia is that right at the beginning of my photography career I had met Julia working with Santa Claus at the Myer ‘Santaland’ right when it was a new thing at the Myer center in the city – it was lovely to see her again!
Ten22 Wedding Ceremony
The Ten22 wedding ceremony was an intimate and heartfelt affair. As Julia arrived through the curtains, you could feel the excitement and anticipation in the air. The space may have been a bit cozier than expected, but it added to the warmth and intimacy of the occasion.
As we were also producing a highlight video, it was a bit of a challenge to navigate the smaller space with our video cameras, but we managed to capture every moment beautifully. The vows that Julia and Daniel exchanged were truly heartwarming, and there wasn’t a dry eye in the house. It was a beautiful moment that they will cherish for the rest of their lives.
As a professional Adelaide wedding photographer, you have to be prepared for this weird weather we’ve been having recently, and let me tell you, this day was definitely one that threw quite a few hurdles! Changing venues, the rain, smashing my camera – all in good fun!
Despite the rain, we managed to capture some stunning shots at the old rustic Belair Train Station and the nearby Belair National Park. The gum trees and the occasional appearance of the sun made for the perfect backdrop for some truly magical moments. And as soon as we left the park, the heavens opened up, and the rain didn’t stop for the rest of the night. But you know what they say, rain on your wedding day is good luck! And Julia and Daniel certainly had all the luck in the world on their special day.
Ten22 Wedding Reception
The shed interior of Ten22 is rustic, yet elegant. It had a cozy and warm feeling to it, the atmosphere was just perfect for a small, intimate gathering of loved ones, and as for the food, let’s just say that their ‘sit down’ finger food style reception was an absolute hit! The guests were raving about the delicious bites, and everyone had a wonderful time mingling and chatting with one another.
During the reception, we managed to sneak in a few photos in the alleyway behind Ten22. Yes, it was raining, but that didn’t stop us! In fact, it added a unique and moody element to the shots. We even used some lights and smoke to create some dramatic effects, and the results were absolutely stunning. It just goes to show that sometimes, the best photos come from unexpected situations.
Julia and Daniel, thank you for entrusting us to capture the memories of your special day. It was an honor to be a part of your Ten22 wedding celebration and to document your beautiful love story. We wish you a lifetime of love and happiness together!
