Elaine & Joel – St Andrew’s Cathedral – RACA

Elaine and Joel were married on a fine winter’s day at St Andrew’s Cathedral, right next to the Town Hall in the CBD. It’s a very impressive church, simply stunning inside and out. Before hand I took some great preparation shots with Elaine, the house she was getting ready in was fantastic for photos! The ceremony at St Andrew’s was beautiful, and a song performed by a friend (who is an opera singer) was a real highlight. There was some time for afternoon tea at the cathedral and then we left for photos at Martin Place, Hyde Park and the Rocks outside the Park Hyatt right on sunset. We waited for it to get dark and got some beautiful night shots with the Harbour Bridge! The reception was at the RACA on Macquarie Street. It’s a period venue with beautiful architecture and fittings they just dont make anymore. Thanks for Read more…

Charlie & Rob – Q Station – Manly Beach

Charlie & Rob originally hail from Scotland so this was a real Scottish wedding with kilts, whiskey and wonderful Scottish accents! We also seemed to get a good dose of Scottish weather as it rained quite hard for most of the day! The ceremony was at a new wedding venue in Manly, the Q Station. It’s a great location situated on North Head and has beautiful old wooden buildings and fantastic views out across Sydney Harbour. Due to the rain the ceremony was held indoors, Jan Littlejohn was the celebrant and as always she was really lovely. Outdoor photos were looking unlikely but a break in the clouds gave us some time for shots on Manly Beach and at the Fairy Bower Rock Pool. We got some great shots, and Charlie was very brave at the Pool with all the waves crashing around…. I dont think I’ve seen a wedding Read more…

Rachel & Rob – Christ Church – Orso Wedding

Orso wedding Sydney RR

Rachel and Rob were married at Christ Church in Lavendar Bay, a spectacular old church with beautiful stone and lovely trees outside. Location photos were at Kirribilli and Balmoral Beach – we just missed a heavy shower of rain in between but it made for an amazing shot with a rainbow at Balmoral! The reception was at Orso at the Spit. This is a great wedding venue and the arrival of the bridal party on the Orso boat is really unique. There was more rain and lightning that night….. and not just outside but on the dance floor as Rachel & Rob performed THE BEST first dance I have ever seen! It was a Dirty Dancing routine complete with the big lift at the end – just unbelievable! By the way, Rachel & Rob were the fourth couple I have photographed from a group of their friends, so it was Read more…

Melinda & Thomas – Pymble Ladies’ College Chapel – Pymble Golf Club

Melinda and Thomas were married at the Pymble Ladies’ College Chapel. The chapel is lovely and the ceremony was just beautiful – a real highlight was the song performed by one of Melinda’s bridesmaids. The shower of petals that greeted them as they walked down the Chapel steps was also very impressive! We drove to Long Reef for location photos and found some beautiful light at the end of the day…… and a curious pelican! Then it was back to the reception at the Pymble Golf Club. Congrats to you both!

Anna & Barry – Freshwater View Reserve – Freshwater SLSC

Anna & Barry had a truly wonderful wedding day, starting with the ceremony at Freshwater View Reserve. It was a perfect day with sunny weather and the priest (a real mad Irishman) was absolutely hilarious! I have never seen anything like it, he made the ceremony a lot of fun. We did some location shots at Curl Curl Beach and also Freshwater Beach before the reception at the Freshwater Surf Club. Congratulations Anna & Barry! A special mention for the flowers, they were really stunning, made by Fiona at Japonica.
