Jee & James – St Stephen’s Newtown – The Rocks – Waterview Homebush

Autumn is a lovely time of the year – the days are mild, the leaves turn golden and brown, and afternoons seem to stretch on forever. Photographically it’s a great time as well – the light tends to be softer & more colourful as the sun follows a lower path across the sky. Jee & James were married in a very old church (~1874) in Newtown called St Stephen’s. It has some amazing features and a wonderful old feel, and also a rather unqiue setting: the church is surrounded by gravestones as apparently the funds to originally build it were raised by those buried nearby. The ceremony itself was lovely, and the songs at the end sung by friends were fantastic. We took some photos Read more…


Felicity & Andrew – St Stephens Willoughby – The Rocks – Ottomans

Felicity & Andrew were married at St Stephen’s Church in Willougby. I also shot a wedding there last year and I can highly recommend it – it’s a lovely old church and the minister is very friendly. After the church we headed to the Rocks area and spent some time wandering around for photos with the bridal party. They were a great group and I dont think either Felicity or Andrew stopped smiling and laughing the whole time! The shots turned out really well, and it was then on to Ottomans at Walsh Bay for the reception. I really like Ottomans as a reception venue – the outdoor space is great for people to mingle, the location near the city and being almost right under Read more…


Jennifer & Daniel – Mandalay – The Rocks

Jennifer and Daniel were married at the Mandalay in Lane Cove. It’s a beautiful venue which has a great mix of an old style interior with a lovely garden exterior. The ceremony was held in the garden to the side of the house and it featured a lovely reading from Captain Corelli’s Mandolin. It was a hot day so everyone headed inside after a few photos for the lunch time reception. The table settings were beautifully done, and check out the wedding cake – I’m not a basketball ref but this looks like a foul! After the reception we headed into the city for some photos with Jennifer and Daniel around the Rocks. It’s a nice way of getting some location photos closer to sunset Read more…


Marlia & Mark – Garrison Church – The Rocks – Bel Mondo

It’s been a very busy couple of months! As such we’re a bit behind on the blog so here goes…… Marlia & Mark were married at the Garrison Church in the Rocks. It was my first wedding at this church and I really enjoyed being right in the heart of the Rocks area! The church itself is stunning and there are plenty of great photo locations in the Rocks all within walking distance. I started at Marlia’s house for her preparation shots and Kirstine was a second shooter for the day who went to Mark’s house for his preps. The ceremony at the Garrison was lovely with Rev. Howard running things really well.  There was time for mingling outside the church and then we then Read more…


Ada & Aylwin – Curzon Hall – Martin Place – The Rocks

It was raining cats & dogs on the day Ada & Aylwin were married but thankfully during breaks in the showers we managed to get all the shots we wanted at each location! It just goes to show you can get great photos on a wet day if you have time to wait for the clouds to clear. The day started early with games at Ada’s parents’ house. Aylwin and the groomsmen had to sing a song, make some rather odd tasting rice & wasabi balls and undergo a thorough interrogation by the girls! There was a tea ceremony held at Ada’s house with her family and also at the reception venue Curzon Hall with Aylwin’s family. The rain meant we were inside for the Read more…
