Karen & James | Wedding

Back in March, just 2 days after getting home from Karla & Corey’s wedding in Vanuatu, I was back at the airport and off to Alice Springs for Karen & James’ wedding. You might remember them from their engagement session last year at Simpsons Gap.

There was not a cloud in the sky and everything was perfect!

The atmosphere at the girls hotel was super fun. Everything was organised and running ahead of schedule!

I then headed off to see the boys and while there were some nerves kicking around, it wasn’t anything out of the ordinary.

The ceremony was held on the grounds of the Chifley Alice Springs Resort.

Afterwards, we all headed out to the Telegraph Station for the bridal party portraits. It’s such a fantastic location with a great mix of heritage buildings & stockyards combined with amazing light!

The reception was held in the Ghan Foyer of the Alice Springs Convention Centre, with an incredible view of the McDonnell Ranges right outside the huge glass wall.
