Caitlin & Alistair are the perfect amazing example of completely authentic love, I could literally feel the love and affection these two had for each other within minutes of being around them. The day started at Aldinga Seaside for bride prep with Caitlin and her amazing bridesmaids. Caitlin is an amazing young woman, so friendly and welcoming - she didn't look nervous in the slightest and I knew that the day was going to be a magical one. After hanging with the girls for a couple of hours I headed over to the grooms prep at The Grape and Olive in Willunga.
I could tell that Alistair was fairly nervous about the day ahead, the longer I was there and the more preparations that took place - the quieter he became. The way he spoke of Caitlin and their journey so far had me betting on an emotional day ahead, this couple were perfect for one another and had an unreal connection that had been built over the years.
I ventured to Coriole Vineyards (Bonus Points if you can pronounce it right!)...Ceremony time was here...Alistair was virtually silent, he was using all that he had to not become overwhelmed with emotion as the flower girls and bridesmaids appeared at the start of the aisle...and then Caitlin appeared - accompanied by both her parents, walking towards Alistair to the beautiful tunes of Ash Gale - Alistair's face said it all. I may have had to wipe the viewfinder of my camera at his point. Dorinda Hafner started what I might go as far as saying - the most beautiful, humorous and intimate ceremonies I've seen in a long time!
Check out their story, be sure to have the tissues handy.

Elloise & Mark are such an amazing couple, so authentic and kind which made capturing their wedding day an absolute pleasure. They reconnected many years after last seeing each other at school when Mark received a Facebook Notification that it was Elloise's birthday. He decided to send a message saying happy birthday and suggested they should catch up, that catch up changed the path of both their lives in a very big way...

What can I say, this was one of the most beautiful love stories ever told. I loved capturing this beautiful moment in time, Tony & Leona are perfect for one another and the mutual love and respect they have for one another was evident the entire day. Leona & Tony even had a live performance at their ceremony by Tori Marshall, I loved the song and felt it needed to be in their film. Special thank you to Tori for making that happen for us.
Tony & Leona loved their highlight film so much that they rang me immediately after viewing it and asked if they could have a 30 minute feature film too. If you wish to see a preview of our extended length films - please get in touch and we'd be happy to share one with you.

This amazing couple have a hilarious and beautiful love story of how they first met and came to be husband and wife but their story also has a sad element to it as Tegan's father could not be with us on this special day. Their beautiful love story is another of my favorites and it was most certainly the most lively and entertaining wedding once the formalities had been taken care of.
Tegan & Luke's wedding was actually located about 5 hours away from Adelaide on the Eyre Peninsula, we had a very significant obstacle in our way - severe flood waters had taken out the freeway at Port Wakefield, the 5 hour journey quickly became 7 and a half hours as we found our way around the floods with the help of police and emergency workers. We do whatever it takes to make it happen here at Invisage Studios

One of the larger weddings the Invisage Studios has had the pleasure of capturing, with over 350 guests at the Adelaide Town Hall. Maria & Joe are young, fun and totally crazy about one another and I think it really shows in this film despite them both being rather shy. The boys kept things lively during the grooms prep which always makes for a great film. The Ceremony was at Saints Pete & Paul Catholic Church in Gawler, South Australia, we then drove to Veale Gardens on South Terrace, Adelaide for our photoshoot followed by a massive reception at the Adelaide Town Hall on King William Street. It was a fantastic event and everyone had an amazing time, Maria & Joe ordered a highlight film and a full feature film of their special day.
