The Alice Springs wedding of Cassie & Jared was an incredible event in one of Australia’s most beautiful locations. And it is a place I have wanted to photograph a wedding at for a long time.
We are well aware that we are incredibly lucky to be able to make a living. Doing something that we truly love and are passionate about. As a wedding photographer, some weddings really serve as a wonderful reminder of just how great we have it. And this was definitely one of those weddings.
Alice Springs in the Northern Territory, is just a three hour flight from Sydney but is such a completely different world. It is such a contrast from the concrete, hustle & bustle of Sydney, to the red-earth, slower and friendlier pace of ‘The Alice’. This lovely little small town in the middle of Australia, covered in red dirt and surrounded by an epic mountain range. The first thing that struck me when arriving at Alice Springs was just how beautiful and stunning this place is. The second… the flies… OMG the flies… they were crazy!
As a wedding photographer, I love getting to capture weddings in new places. It was very exciting to tick this off my bucket list. But what was even better was to meet and get to know this wonderful couple and their family. I met Cassie & Jarred pretty much as soon as I got off the plane to do an engagement shoot at Simpsons Gap. They were so warm and welcoming.
Their wedding took place at the Old Outback Quarry Alice Springs and it was stunning! It is such a perfect location. The ceremony in this wide expanse of space, yet still giving off an intimate feel. There was amazing backdrops almost everywhere you looked. And the reception was elegantly set up under a few lights and millions of stars.
As an Alice Springs wedding photographer I am thrilled to show you this gorgeous wedding . And I can’t wait to photograph a few more Outback weddings in the future.
