I had been very excited about Natasha & David’s wedding for some time, as I went to school in the Barossa and wondered how on earth I’d managed to luck out of shooting a wedding there for so long. Fast forward to circa May 2009, and Natasha booked me in for what would be her autumn 2010 Barossa wedding. Yay!
The day was fantastic. Both Natasha and David had warned me that David was notoriously camera-shy (apparently, he has hated photos of himself all his life) but on the day I was completely stunned to find a really relaxed groom who didn’t seem a bit fazed by the camera. I suppose getting married tends to have that effect on people!
Both got ready at the Barossa Novotel Resort and as their rooms were quite close together, we did a couple of loops back and forth. It was very relaxing, with lots of laughs, especially with the girls. Natasha loved her shoes so much (and with good reason – they were stunning!) that the running joke of the morning was that once we’d grabbed photos of Natasha’s shoes, our job was done and we could all go home. Natasha’s Dad was an absolute character and the look on his face when he saw his gorgeous daughter all dressed up for her wedding was priceless!
Anyway, I digress. The day was fantastic. The ceremony was held on the croquet lawn at Chateau Tanunda. The weather behaved itself nicely and despite some angry-looking clouds (which, I reminded everyone, does wonderful things for photos) the rain held off ’til after the ceremony.
It was such a fun, easygoing and beautiful afternoon (thank you again, Natasha and David), and so without further ado, here are some of my favourite photos:
