Nick & Bianca are true country people – so it naturally made sense that they celebrate their union at a farm…their farm in Nildottie SA to be specific. My family and I were generously invited out to visit Nick and Bianca’s farm in December of last year – I love the opportunity to scout out locations prior to photographing in them so I jumped at the invitation. We had a beautiful barbecue (where my darling children did some old fashioned charming ie crying over sausages and generally menacing the kitten!) and we took a drive around the farm to view different locations. Needless to say I was pretty excited for their wedding day – its not every day you get to photograph on a cliff top right next to the Murray River!
Bianca and Nick were amazingly relaxed when I arrived. Bianca had already finished with her hair and make-up (‘Why wait?! I’d rather get it over with’ is what she said to me), while Nick and the groomsmen went out for some clay target shooting before getting ready.
The couple were married in an old barn which was unbelievably charming, although a bit toasty at the same time. Luckily Pastor Harry is amazing at conducting a very quick ceremony – although he did have a little bit of trouble with a few of the names throughout it!
After some family photos we then set off around the farm to the locations we had scouted out and enjoyed some laughs and fun as we worked.
For their reception Nick & Bianca decked out their shed with tables and chairs and guests were treated to a beautiful roast dinner with cup cakes for dessert before everyone danced into the night (or sat comfortably next to small fires outside). It was truly an amazing wedding in a beautiful location. Thanks for inviting me to photograph your day and all the best in your married lives!
