Lani & Steve’s was a very local wedding for me and I started the day with Lani’s preparations just around the corner from our studio at the Manly Pacific Hotel. I loved the “Dont’s For Wives” book – good for a laugh but definitely not for modern relationships!
The ceremony & reception was held at Le Kiosk – nearby at Shelly Beach and one of my favourite venues. It has great food, there’s an intimate indoor space, and it has an outside courtyard area as well. Lani & Steve held the ceremony at the back of the courtyard area and it had a lovely feel of a tropical garden setting. The ceremony itself was beautiful with all the family involved and plenty of smiles and laughter!
We did some family photos near a big tree on Shelly Beach. The kids were fantastic and we got some great shots of them together in the trees… and later mucking around being kids playing races for sticks! We did some location photos with Lani & Steve on Shelly and then ventured out to the rocks on the point at Fairy Bower.
The reception was very relaxed with cracker speeches from everyone. Congrats guys!
