Serafinos Wedding – Jessica & Jack

Jessica and Jack’s wedding at the Serafinos Winery in Mclaran Vale was an incredible day to photograph – filled with insanely photogenic locations and people it made the entire day incredibly easy to photograph! I was asked to cover their wedding as their wedding photographer from start to finish, and I’m so glad they did as some of the photographs I took on their day just turned out incredibly.


The day started in Mt Barker, where Jack and his entourage were being prepared at his parents house that happened to be on a farm. It was a wonderfully furnished house, complete with an amazing driveway which we utilised for some group shots. The atmosphere was fairly laid back with Jack’s boys keeping the whole morning as light hearted as possible.

Jessica was being prepared a lot closer to Serafinos, in a stunning Aldinga bed and breakfast called Maison Blue. The setting was perfect for a bridal preparation,. it’s an amazingly beautiful house – as soon as I walked up the stairs and saw Jessica’s wedding dress hung over it’s amazing arch window, I was amazed. The girls, like the boys kept their morning quite light hearted, with the only concern coming from Jess once the unfortunate drizzle of rain began just before they were about to leave for Serafinos.

Serafinos Wedding Ceremony

The Serafinos winery is a popular wedding venue in Mclaren Vale, complete with all the charming aspects of a winery, along with an absolutely stunning ceremony location in front of a huge lake beyond a huge gum tree which served as a backdrop for  Jess and Jack’s ceremony.

The only unfortunate thing that occurred during the whole day was a bit of rain that fell at the beginning of their wedding ceremony, but other than that little mishap – which many people consider to be good luck at a wedding anyway – The ceremony went off without a hitch.

Serafinos Glamour Photos

Directly after Jess and Jack’s wedding ceremony, and family photos taken nearby the tree they were married under, the bridal party, their videographer and I took a little walk about the grounds. As it was a fairly overcast day the lighting was absolutely perfect for glamour photos! I really enjoyed myself and I think their photos turned out amazingly.

Serafinos Wedding Reception

Jess and Jack’s wedding reception took place in the wonderfully decorated reception hall on location at the Serafinos winery which allowed for a huge dance floor and seating for their entire guest list. The highlight for me was definitely their first dance. The backdrop of the barrels along the the head table and dry ice machine made for an amazing shot.

I’d like to thank Jess and Jack for having me do their wedding photography – I really enjoyed myself and I hope they enjoy their photos as much as I enjoyed taking them!
