Loving this bright, fun and colourful country Adelaide wedding, complete with jumping castle and the most delicious macaroon cake we ever did see.
Bride Kate tells us “Simon and I made a pact when we first got engaged – anything to do with the wedding had to be 100% us. The most important things were good food and great company so we picked a venue that had everything, and invited everyone that was important, including nearly 20 children. We wanted the day to really reflect us both as individuals and as a couple. The crazy colours, lots of craft projects and little touches here and there from all sides of the family helped us achieve that.”
“Having Simon’s dad, a priest, marry us was one of the best parts of the day. He turned the ceremony around 180 degrees just before I came out so we’d be in the shade (it was 35 degrees!). Walking down the aisle towards Simon was like walking into a huge hug from everyone – overwhelming but so exciting at the same time.”
The whole shebang was photographed beautifully by talented wedding photographer and all round nice guy Tim Coulson, who tells us “I’m so grateful for the trust both Kate and Simon put in me. Wedding photos are a big deal and that’s the way I treat them. When I shoot, I think about how I want these photos to be hanging on your walls for your whole life. The same way my Nan and Pop’s wedding photos still hang on their walls – sixty two years after they were married.”
