Nicky & Simon – Oakhill College Chapel – Centennial Park – MCA

Nicky & Simon had a scorcher of a wedding day with the temperature hitting 40 in Castle Hill! Phew. The ceremony was held at the Oakhill College Chapel and it is a very beautiful place with a colourful interior. We headed away to Centennial Park for some photos with the bridal party before a short stop at Argyle Street and then photos under the Harbour Bridge. The reception was at the MCA – the Museum of Contemporary Art right in Circular Quay. Wow! What an amazing view from the Harbour Terrace – I was blown away and it really was an exceptional place to watch the sun slowly setting on the Harbour Bridge and Opera House. The reception went very well – there were some Read more…


Gwen & Terry – Tarpeian Precinct Botanic Gardens – Opera Point Marquee

Gwen & Terry were married at the Tarpeian Precinct in the Botanic Gardens. It’s a fantastic location right next to the Opera House with views over the harbour and it has a large fig tree for shade on a hot day. The ceremony went very well – I’ve never seen a veil come off with the first kiss! The the shower of petals as they walked down the aisle looks awesome! We did a few photos with Gwen & Terry at the Botanic Gardens and then headed to Hyde Park and also the Rocks before ending up back at the Opera House and the reception at Opera Point Marquee. It’s an iconic location that simply can’t be beaten for views of the Harbour and the Read more…


Olivia & Louis – St Andrew’s Manly – Curl Curl – Le Kiosk Shelly Beach

Olivia & Louis’ wedding was one of my last for 2009 and it was all very local for me – Olivia’s preparations were in Curl Curl, the ceremony literally just up the hill at St Andrew’s in Manly….. and the reception at Le Kiosk at Shelly Beach! St Andrew’s Presbyterian is a lovely church built in the late 1800’s and constructed from local white sandstone. I have been to quite a few weddings here and I just love the place. The minister Derek is such a great guy and he makes the whole wedding ceremony very relaxed. After the ceremony at St Andrew’s we went to North Curl Curl for photos – we got some fantastic shots! It was then on to Le Kiosk at Read more…


Katie & Jerome – St Mary’s Immaculate Manly – Mona Vale Beach – Moby’s Whale Beach

Katie & Jerome were married at St Mary’s Immaculate in Manly – right next door to the studio! It’s a lovely church and the ceremony went very well. Outside it had started to rain so we did a group shot in the church but had a clear patch for family photos and some with Katie & Jerome. We headed to Mona Vale Beach for location photos but upon arrival the wind and rain didnt look good. Much to their credit the bridal party braved the elements and it was a lot of fun trying to shoot with my camera in one hand and an umbrella in the other! The photos turned out well and the cloud does add a lot of atmosphere to the look. Read more…


Shelley & Eric – Vibe Hotel – St Thomas’ North Sydney – Long Reef Golf Club

Shelley & Eric picked what I think is one of the best churches in Sydney – St Thomas’ Anglican Church in North Sydney. It is a beautiful example of late 1800’s architecture and apparently has the longest aisle in the Southern hemisphere! As you can see from the photos below it is a fantastic place to be married and the ceremony was conducted very ably by Paul Dale, a minister from a local church – the Church by the Bridge – in Kirribilli. After the ceremony and family photos we did a few shots at St Thomas’ before heading to Kirribilli. Then it was off to Long Reef for firstly photos on the beach and then a short walk up to the headland where we Read more…
