~Tim and Lisa’s Carrickalinga Beach Wedding~

The Tale of Two Dresses

When I arrived at the Seagrass Villa’s on the morning of the wedding Lisa explained to me that she had picked the beautiful orange ballgown for the day, but Tim had chosen and bought the gorgeous white, lace gown for the day. What a decision to have to make! In the end the decision was made – the white gown for the wedding, the orange one for the reception! Shortly after the hairdresser/makeup artist arrived- who also happen to be Lisa’s close friends Jason and Irene- the very people responsible for Lisa and Tim meeting and dating! I was then treated to the story – how they were both set up to be in the hairdresser at the same time in opposite chairs and at an opportune moment Tim was turned around by Jason to meet Lisa!

Lisa looked absolutely amazing! She had informed her sons that they could choose to wear whatever they wanted to the wedding – two of them got the Lowes Xmas short/shirt memo and one didn’t which caused a few laughs!

Lisa was escorted by her boys down the boardwalk at the Carrickalinga beach to the very fitting song ‘Share your address’ where Tim and their guests were waiting below. It was a beautiful, moving ceremony!

Lisa and her boys share a love of cars so it was only fitting that we catch a few fun snaps with the cars!

Lisa and Tim celebrated their reception in a very relaxed style with a grazing board and pizza from Fleurieu Woodfired pizzas at a private residence in Carrickalinga. It was the best way to celebrate with the younger children even enjoying a swim!

We decided to do things a little bit differently and waited to do portraits of the bride and groom on the following day. This way Lisa and Tim had time to enjoy their wedding reception with their guests and to relax afterwards – plus we avoided the harsh midday sun which we photographers dislike so much! The Monday morning dawned and it was raining and overcast but we did manage to capture some beautiful photos down at the beach!

We wish you both all the best in your life together. Thank you for allowing me to capture your beautiful day! If you are getting married and are looking for someone to capture the story of your wedding day contact us to enquire about your chosen date!
