Lauren & Mark – Dunbar House Wedding Watsons Bay – Macquarie Lighthouse

Lauren & Mark held their wedding ceremony under a beautiful fig tree in Watson’s Bay right outside Dunbar House. There were storm clouds threatening but they held off until right to the end of the ceremony…… then it was umbrellas up and a run to cover! Thankfully the rain cleared for location photos firstly at Macquarie Lighthouse and then a beach near Strickland House. The sunlight coming through the clouds was spectacular! We headed back to Watson’s Bay via Nielsen Park and then into the reception upstairs at Dunbar House. Dunbar House is an awesome wedding venue and has an intimate feel but beautiful classic style. Weddings here always seem low fuss as the ceremony and reception are in one location and this means no travel and no traffic! For more Dunbar House wedding photos click here. The wedding planner was Janelle at Saltwater Weddings – she always does a Read more…

Lauren & Matt – Cafe Sydney – Opera House

With family & friends from overseas Lauren & Matt picked a fantastic venue for their wedding ceremony & reception – Cafe Sydney. Situated on the top floor of Customs House, Cafe Sydney has stunning views overlooking Circular Quay taking in the Harbour Bridge and the Opera House, and the food & service is very well known as being exceptionally high. The ceremony was held on the balcony mid-morning on a hot day so it was very bright. The lunch was lovely and the speeches set a great tone for the dancing that followed. The band was Slide McBride and these guys are amazing – they do a great range of songs from chilled out to really rocking – I highly recommend them! After the reception we took some photos at the Opera House with the bridal party where we got some great shots, especially on the steps! Congrats guys! Hair Read more…

Stephanie & Craig – Trinity Grammar Chapel – Hyde Park – Sergeants Mess

Stephanie & Craig were married at Trinity Grammar School Chapel in Summer Hill. It’s a really lovely chapel and the ceremony was beautiful with plenty of emotion and some good laughs too! After a group shot and family photos we did a few shots on the school grounds before heading into the city to Hyde Park. It’s is a great spot for location photos and we got some really cool shots before a short stop at Kirribilli and then on to the reception. Stephanie & Craig’s reception was held at a new venue on the Sydney wedding scene – the Sergeants’ Mess in Chowder Bay. The Sergeants Mess opened in the middle of the year so this was my first wedding here – I was really impressed! The location is fantastic with panoramic views over Sydney Harbour and Sydney Heads, and the pre-dinner drinks area and main dining room are Read more…
