I know I have a tendency to rave on about all of the people I meet, however im not quite sure I can find the words to describe Trinh & Michael. They each have an infectious feel good aura, and when put together its like some pulse of radioactive happiness hits you slap bang between the eyes.
We caught up only a few weeks ago over a pint of winter ale at their local gin house AKA The Mile End. We just hit it off right away, it was almost as if I was catching up with a couple of friends you hadn’t seen in 5 years. They told me their plans for a small intimate wedding based around a brilliant venue, awesome food and great wine. We decided there and then that we would break this wedding into two parts, day one would be the city wedding followed by a second day of exploration & portraits down the coast, so here is part one.
I made my way to Trinh & Michaels home around mid morning as they were preparing together. After a long black coffee, we hit up the Mile End Hotel for some portraits before making the short trip to Adelaide’s East End to set up at Africola (I will come back to this place later).
Now these guys met & bonded over their mutual love for literature, so what better place to get married than the circulating chamber at the State Library. Unfortunately the weather and I have this little game going at the moment where it likes come and dump the wet stuff on me during portraits which is something that I now harness & relish. We hit up one of my favourite spots in the city before ducking back to Africola for what I can only describe as a meal of biblical proportions. The food at this place is absolutely insane.
My new buddy Aiden was pumping out beats all night as the food, beer and spirits came out to party. I can’t explain how much of an honour it was to be a part of this, im now eagerly awaiting part 2.
