Two lesbian brides one in a white suit at styled wedding in Adelaide Australia

Set in South Australia’s oldest winery, Hardy’s Wine is McLaren Vale’s newest wedding venue, this styled shoot celebrates the love between Kate and Rachel with Autumnal florals, red and orange tones and modern signage.

Tell us the inspiration behind the shoot.

Set at one of the oldest wineries in South Australia, Hardy’s Wine Tinara opens its doors as the newest wedding venue in the McLaren Vale region. Bursting with burnt orange florals, playing with the stunning red and orange tones through the historic brickwork. With bespoke couture gowns, made in the heart of South Australia, on our real-life couple Kate and Rachel. After falling in love with my dogs Oslo and Saigo, we decided why not add some extra cuteness to the shoot.

Tell us about your favorite moment together.

We witnessed an incredible lightning storm on the balcony of our resort in Siem Reap, Cambodia. It was our first overseas holiday together in 2019. We had just enjoyed a beautiful dinner and as the sunset, thunder started to roll in. We stayed up for hours watching it while drinking cocktails on a warm night.
