Like most kids, my boys love exploration and adventure. Give them a bit of space, a secret garden, hidden pathways historic buildings and even a bit of wildlife and they are in their element. So our visit to Mount Lofty House in the Adelaide Hills for a sculpture hunt was a perfect Saturday morning activity. As part of the 2015 SALA festival, Mount Lofty House has a number of beautiful installations by Manning Sculptures spread throughout their vast grounds. I love MLH, it’s one of my favourite locations for Hills weddings thanks to the wonderful views and textures around the property. It provides the perfect backdrop for this stunning art, and while the pieces have just been added for the month of August, they fit seamlessly with their surrounds…The perfect blend of art and nature.
I’m incredibly excited to be shooting a wedding this weekend at this amazing location…It comes with such history, a property where so much Australian art was created and nurtured. The Cedars was the home and studio of Sir Hans Heysen, one of Australia’s most celebrated artists. The property still retains it’s charm and simplicity and is used by many artists today as a canvas for their work. Walking around here is such a treat, with many installations scattered about the vast landscape and also little intimate locations tucked away amongst the trees, just perfect for a bride and groom to explore (with their trusty photographer not far behind).
