Had the great pleasure of photographing Monica and Gary’s wedding on Saturday. I’ll post a couple of pics from the wedding at a later time. But just had to tell you about the fabulous location they had for their Riverland wedding. Ruston’s Roses, first time I visited the place back around 1983 I reckon. I was there as a cameraman on a small regional TV doco. We shot and interview with David Ruston and a bit of overlay stuff of the roses.
Well I have to tell you a few things have changed since then. Gardens are still there, with thousands of roses of course. However, now they have a great little gift shop, museum and serve meals. Really didn’t have time to check things properly. From what I saw, I’ll be sure to call in there on my next trip through Renmark. Here’s a link to Ruston’s Roses
If you’re planning a wedding in the Riverland area, then I highly recommend Ruston’s Rose as a photographic location. oh and please invite us along. We have so many more shots we’d like to do in the gardens.
Now this rose didn’t come from Ruston’s Roses. Instead out of the excitations studio garden. Photographers we are, rose growers not. but I like to have a picture with every post and it obviously had to be a rose so there you are. One pink rose all tied down so that it couldn’t get away.
