Many Adelaide couples want to have their wedding ceremonies and receptions outdoors as it helps create a relaxed vibe.
There are a load of wedding venues to choose from all over Adelaide and the Adelaide Hills. You might even want to go further afield in the Fleurieu Peninsula or Barossa Valley.
If you choose a venue with a great outlook, you get spectacular photos, especially at sundown.
This lovely bride Jeshy said that this photo was what she always dreamed of, so I say to my couples - dream away - it creates magic!
Ricky and Jeshy worked out the time of their wedding day so that they got the best of all worlds - beautiful photos but plenty of time with their guests!
They decided that a First Look would suit them. They could have the majority of their photos taken before the wedding ceremony allowing time with their family and friends after. Having a first look doesn't suit all couples, and you have to work out what works for you. Do you care that you have already seen each other before 'walking down the aisle', or would it help calm the nerves if you have already been able to relax together?
What time of day your ceremony is also a consideration when working out when to have your wedding photos. If you go for the traditional timing and not the first look, then you need enough time to have the ceremony (ask your celebrant how long you will need), family photos (about half an hour), bridal party photos (another half an hour), and couple photos (at least half an hour) before the sun has gone down too low. You can google what time the sun sets on your wedding day and work back from there. Of course, photos after the sun has gone down are also possible, but you probably want a mix of both.
