Amber & James at Mandalay House & Garden, Adelaide Hills

Michelle and I have been waiting a long time for Amber & James’s wedding. We were pretty excited to take this destination wedding on board as it’s in one of our favourite cities- Adelaide. Each time we have visited this city we have felt instantly relaxed, a slightly slower pace and an abundance of wineries so close by to the city makes it a pretty favourable location for us 🙂 We were able to tack on an extra day ( kid free!) to enjoy the amazing food and wine the region has to offer.

Amber and James’s wedding day was a brilliantly sunny 36 degrees set on the incredibly stunning grounds at Mandalay House & Garden, truly one of the most impressive venues I have been to in all my years as a wedding photographer. The owner and host, Deb, was so accommodating  all day and she truly knows how to host weddings seamlessly at her incredible home. Deb, thanks so much for looking after us and keeping Michelle hydrated through the day!

It was also a property I could use the drone at several different points throughout the day…Much to the delight of several onlooking and curious guests 🙂 From the aerial property views, to a row boat, group shots and dancing, along with so many  photo locations on offer, it was hard to narrow it down to a blog selection! I’m really loving the variety and angles I’m getting from using the Phantom 4 Pro, and I know my couples are loving it too!

Amber and James, thanks so much for having Michelle and I along as part of the day- So many memories from your day that we are still talking about!  From the crazy bridal party which kept the laughs going all day, to your maid of honour directing the group photos with  a voice meant for the sporting field, to your bravery and complete trust in my vision for getting you into a row boat ( thank you!).  I think the very last picture of some removed shoes from some of your guests (who were dancing the night away), truly sums up the fun that everyone, including us,  had on the day.

It was an absolute pleasure to become what felt like, apart of your combined families by the end of it all.
