Adelaide Botanic Gardens Wedding

Josh & Catherine’s Adelaide Botanic Gardens Wedding

I must take my hat off to Catherine and Josh for staying the course. Committing to a September date this year was a difficult decision that paid off. Considering so many couples around the world had postponed their wedding due to COVID-19. After 6 long months without shooting a wedding, I was finally back in the game. Even with a last-minute venue change 3 weeks out from the wedding day. It wasn’t going to deter this couple from saying ‘I do’ on their chosen day. Full credit to everyone involved in bringing this day to life for Catherine & Josh!

Josh & Catherine were married on the North Lodge Lawns in the Adelaide Botanic Gardens. With the ceremony0 conducted by Penelope Carrick. While the arbour supplied by Minty Mary Pea served as the focal point of the ceremony. Afterwards, the location photos were taken amongst the surrounds of the Botanic Gardens. Finally, Josh & Catherine’s reception was held at the National Wine Centre of Australia. With entertainment supplied by DJ Steve Locke and Photobooth supplied by the team from Snap Snap.
