The Manor Basket Range | Adelaide Hills Wedding

How has your experience been with Lucinda May Photography?
Lucinda has been fantastic. We met her over Skype initially and even through the screen she was lovely and warm. We then did an engagement shoot with her, and we not only loved the photos, but loved the way she worked with us and got us to relax on the day. Our wedding was then fantastic, Lucinda made us feel so comfortable and nothing was too much effort for her. She helped us to stay calm throughout the day and made the creative photos so much fun. We love all of our photographs, and we really love the way Lucinda captured the night. One of our close friends best described the photos, ‘you see some wedding photos and they seem so staged and posed, we saw your photos and it was like reliving the whole night over again’. The photos give us so much joy every time we look at them. 

Why would you recommend Lucinda May Photography to friends?
Lucinda is just so easy to work with. She is caring and compassionate, and has been a great communicator throughout the process. Not only do we have the most beautiful photos, but she made us feel so comfortable on the day and we really appreciated her support throughout the journey. 

What beautiful products did you invest in from Lucinda May Photography and why?
We have our engagement shoot, along with a USB of the wedding photos and we are having a fine art album created. We can’t wait to receive the album, then we can re-live our wedding all over again. 

Can you give any tips for couples on how to prepare for the wedding photos?
The engagement shoot definitely helped a lot and gave us a good idea of what to expect on the day. It also helped to calm our nerves and get comfortable around the camera, especially as Josh is a bit camera shy. Lucinda helped us to create a list of the shots we wanted before the wedding as well, which is great because we got photos of all our guests. 

How did you two love birds meet?
We met through mutual friends when out drinking one night. Our eyes met and that was pretty much it. 

Who popped the question and how did it happen? Was it a surprise? Spill…
Joshua whisked us away for a surprise holiday to Queenstown New Zealand. Josh even arranged my leave from work. He proposed on a park bench when we were looking out at the view and there was someone playing guitar in the background (pure coincidence). The day after he proposed we woke up to snow falling, and had to spend an extra day there as we got snowed in. It was all so romantic. 

How long was your engagement & how long did you have to plan your wedding and did you plan the wedding yourself?
We were engaged for about 2.5 years, it was meant to only be 2 years but we had to postpone due to Covid. We had about 2 years to plan the wedding, but we took a break when Covid hit and then started planning again early this year. We planned everything ourselves and for the most part enjoyed the experience of planning our wedding. 

Were you nervous walking down the aisle?
I was so nervous, I was clinging onto my brother who walked me down the aisle, and he said I was shaking as I was walking. Once I saw Josh the nerves just disappeared and he even cried when he saw me (and he never cries). 

What was your favourite moment(s) from your beautiful wedding day?
The ceremony was definitely a highlight, saying our vows to each other in front of everyone we loved. The dance floor was also just so much fun, and Lucinda got the most amazing dancing shots of us and our guests. The whole day was magical. 

How would you describe your overall wedding day experience?
It was magical. We had the best suppliers, and our venue the Manor thought of everything. It was the best day of our lives and we have never been that happy. 

What advice would you offer to other couples planning a wedding?
We think starting early helps and sticking to a budget. Most importantly trust your decisions and don’t get bogged down with the small stuff. Things will go wrong on the day so just run with it. 

Where did you escape to for your honeymoon? Would you recommend it to other couples?
We headed to the Thorngrove Manor for a few nights, it was beautiful and had the most comfy bed, we definitely recommend it.
