Rachelle & Steve – Brennan Park – Balmoral Beach – Orso

Rachelle & Steve had a beautiful ceremony in Brennan Park in Wollenstonecraft. It was a lovely setting and the emotions ran high from Rachelle’s entrance to their walk back down the aisle. At the end of the aisle friends spelt out a congratulations with photos of themselves as letters – a very cool idea. Before the ceremony we did preparations shots at Rachelle’s parent’s house and just had to get a shot with one of their impressive tea sets! We did photos with the bridal party at Brennan Park before heading to Balmoral Beach. Now, I’m not usually a car guy but the 1957 Chevy’s from Ungaros Wedding Cars were super cool! They have been beautifully restored and they looked a million dollars inside and out. Highly recommended for a very stylish set of wheels at your wedding! We got some great shots at Balmoral and then it was off Read more…

Julie & Immanuel – St Mark’s Arncliffe – Doltone House Slyvannia Waters

Julie & Immanuel had a fantastic wedding day that just didnt stop! It was an early start at Julie’s parents’ house as they hosted the traditional morning celebrations. The highlights here included a special bread being made, plenty of music & dancing, and Immanuel’s best man arriving with Julie’s shoes -which didnt seem to fit until they were filled with $50 notes! We had time to cover Immanuel’s preparations nearby and then it was off to St Mark’s Coptic Orthodox Church in Arncliffe. It was a beautiful ceremony and after releasing some white doves we headed off for location shots. We got some amazing photos at at Bradley’s Head and after dark dropped by the Zeta Bar at the Hilton Hotel. The reception was at Doltone House in Sylvannia Waters and it was a big crowd! The music and dancing carried right on through the reception and Julie & Immanuel Read more…

Keryn & James – St Anne’s Strathfield – Lauriston House Dundas Valley

Keryn & James were married at St Anne’s Anglican Church in Strathfield and before the ceremony we did preparation shots with Keryn at the Mecure Hotel in Parramatta. For location photos we headed into Sydney and went to Hyde Park and the Rocks area. We got some great shots! By the way – in winter months the earlier sunset usually allows for night shots before the reception. So we waited until it was dark and got some great photos with the Harbour Bridge! Something you just cant do in summer. The reception was at Lauriston House in Dundas Valley. Lauriston House is a beautiful heritage villa with lovely old-world features and a Victorian style fountain out the front. I have to say the staff were the most organised and helpful I have ever come across at a wedding – the night went so well! The resident MC was outstanding (he Read more…

Kate & Michael – St Stephens – Q Station

Kate & Michael were married at St Stephen’s Church in Willoughby. It’s a lovely church with plenty of room outside for everyone to mingle…. the bubble blowing was a real hit with the kids! Their reception was at the Q Station in Manly so we did some location photos at a couple of great lookouts on North Head. We also took some shots right on sunset down by the Q Station wharf before the pre-dinner drinks in the Former Hospital Room. The main reception dinner was just up the hill in the Governor Bourke Room, a great venue with plenty of room inside. Congratulations Kate & Michael!

Catherine & Josh – St Brigids – Royal Motor Yacht Club

Catherine & Josh were married at St Brigid’s Church in Coogee – it was very handy being just around the corner from where they live! St Brigid’s is a beautiful church, light and bright and the ceremony was really lovely. We did some location photos at Clovelly near the Surf Club / Gordon’s Bay before heading to Centennial Park where the setting sun made for some great shots! The reception was at the Royal Motor Yacht Club, a great place with fantastic views over the water. Congratulations guys! The wedding cars were from Silver Cloud.

Sue & Yupeng

Quite a different style of post today – Sue & Yupeng did a pre-wedding shoot with us and Yupeng actually proposed to Sue during the shoot!! As such it was very exciting day for these two and a real honour for me to be a witness to it all. We started the day in the studio for hair & makeup, then a few shots before heading to Long Reef. A drive into the city saw us under the Harbour Bridge right on sunset and we also had time for night shots. Their wedding is coming up later in the year in China so congratulations to you both and best of luck for the big day! Jess Berg from Imagine Yourself did a fantastic job as always with the hair & make up!
