From Eon Images…Cass & TK had their engagement session in the beautiful, sunny Barossa Valley wine country in South Australia. We had a beautiful relaxed session around Jacob’s Creek Retreat and then headed to a private wheat crop right on the magic light. Cass & TK are planning a beautiful private estate wedding for later in 2014.
When it comes to the old 9 to 5 routine, trying to decide between pretty, prettier, and prettiest images from Life in Still Photography is not a bad day at work. Not in the slightest. From dazzling protea bouquets by Poppies Flowers to lavender fields a plenty, this engagement shoot has so much going for it including a sweet Mr. and Mrs. to be. It kind of makes me want to don a flower crown and roll around in a field with my Mr. You all might have the exact same reaction after a look at the full gallery. Also not a bad way to spend a work day.
From Life in Still Photography… Aroha and Derrick have been together for quite a while, engaged for a few months and wanted to do something different with their engagement session. It’s springtime over here in South Australia and so we thought it would be wonderful to have some colour for the shoot. The Lavender farm was the perfect place to use and being in the Barossa Valley meant the sunset was just amazing and so warm!
When Dave from Eon Images proposed to the love of his life, Erin, they didn’t have to look far for their wedding photography. Nope, they booked Dave’s business partner Dan ASAP to capture every moment of nuptial bliss… from the engagement session to the wedding, they knew they were in good hands. And when they decided to send the pretty, pretty e-session pics our way, well, we couldn’t help but be jump-out-of-our-seats happy… and once you take a look at all of the gorgeous below, you’ll most definitely see why. The love and happiness from this darling duo is jumping right out of the computer screen and with a breathtaking backdrop like the Barossa Valley, this is the kind of e-shoot that will leave you swooning for weeks. Don’t miss a moment of pure lovely. Join me in the gallery for more.
From Dan at Eon Images… Dave is a wedding photographer at Eon Images in Adelaide, South Australia. He proposed to his beautiful girl Erin part way across the Nullarbor on their recent trip from Perth to Adelaide. Did I mention the ring?! The process of choosing a wedding photographer for a photographer’s wedding (get all that?) is made easier by the fact that Dave works with his mate Dan, also a partner of Eon Images! We took off and spent a gorgeous afternoon in the Barossa Valley, beginning at Grant Burge Wines’ cellar door, where the couple had their first date, to get some engagement photos. The wedding will be held later this year in Perth and is set to be a beauty. (Erin is a designer and I am LOVING talking plans with her already!)
How sweet are these maids all decked out in complimentary hues of pastel chiffon? They are a perfectly pretty welcome to the rest of this adorable, vintage-inspired Barossa Valley wedding by Stills Photography. Instead of coming up with a traditional wedding theme, this lovely couple took their lucky guests on a journey through the South of France with French champagne, loads of lavender and yummy macarons. The details are just as precious as can be and you can see them all in the full gallery!
From the Bride…That we married the people we love. We placed a lot of focus on the finer details, as well as serving amazing food and wine to create a feast for the senses. The small touches; we bought and arranged the flowers ourselves to create a rustic feel. Nothing was too polished nor “perfect”. We planned every detail together, which was an amazing bonding experience. Also having a children’s choir for the ceremony added an emotional touch to the day, they sang “Canon of Praise”, “For the Beauty of the Earth” and “Everybody’s Free” from the movie “Romeo and Juliet”. Their beautiful voices’ filling up the church was very emotionally moving. Another aspect that we loved, that our wedding wasn’t just one day. It was located in the Barossa Valley, which two hours from our city so we created a three day celebration which we shared with our closest friends and family.
The concept was not to have a theme, but to have a feel of a journey to the South of France, drawing inspiration from the region in which Steve proposed. The invitations were actually postcards of Roussillon (our engagement location) so the minute our guest received their invitations; they got an introduction to the journey we hoped to take them on. We chose a selection of French Champagne and French wines as well as traditional food from the Luberon Valley. The Barossa back-drop, with vineyards, gardens, the quaint country church as well as seasonal produce allowed us to achieve this theme. We incorporated a lot of rustic elements at the reception venue such as vintage suitcases and vases of lavender which added to the Provencal feel.
After the wedding our friends and family described our day as “honest and heartfelt”, which was the biggest compliment and exactly what we aimed for. Our MC Matt Gilbertson was given creative licence and was absolutely hilarious. The speeches were heartfelt, the food and wine experience was perfect and everyone was dancing and having a ball! We felt like our guests were emotionally invested in our special day, it was a beautiful intimate dinner party, rather a text-book wedding. We realise now, more than ever, how lucky we are to have such loving friends and family who helped us create and celebrate a day we will never forget.
When I look through the beautiful images and cinematography by Eon Images I feel like I’m getting a little glimpse into one of my favorite love stories. I’m obsessed with classic literature like Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights and this splendidly romantic wedding looks like it was pulled right out of the pages of one of my favorites. So immerse yourself in all the dreamy goodness coming your way especially the incredible film and make sure you stop by the full gallery to see it all!
From Eon Images…The morning of Paul + Emilie’s wedding was a little bit drizzly, but we were still hopeful. With beautiful venues and a young couple who are clearly very much in love we knew it would be a great day regardless! So with the Eon cinematography team along for the ride, we headed in to Birdwood and Gawler to catch some of the preparations.
Now I expected a house in Birdwood to have some character, but boy did this house have character! A gorgeous timber cottage with beautiful gardens (and it was green, thanks rain!). Emilie got ready with the help of her bridesmaids and her Mum and Dad. I sent Dave to check on the boys. Walking up to Paul’s house there was a very tidy looking Alfa Romeo parked nearby. It didn’t take long to find out that this was Paul’s pride and joy (after Emilie of course!). Paul’s Dad is also a big car fan but he wasn’t planning on taking his classic 351 Fairmont out for the day. A little persuasion was all it took, a car like that can’t sit at home on such a special day! So after a few “getting ready” shots they jumped in the two cars and cruised up to the Chateau Yaldara for some more photos. This is an amazing location for photos with gorgeous gardens and stunning heritage buildings.
The weather turned out to be beautiful for the ceremony and creative shoot. After a beautiful (and at times emotional) ceremony at Gomersal Wines we headed to the Grant Burge Estate. This has since become our favourite venue for wedding photos! Back at Gomersal, Paul + Emilie’s guests were treated to some of the best pizza I have ever tasted by Angaston Roaring 40′s Cafe, so good! The reception was a wonderful celebration and we had a great time sharing some of the images with the guests in our same day slideshow.
