Nicola & Simon – Jonah’s Whale Beach

You simply can’t beat Jonah’s perched high above Whale Beach for stunning views and amazing food – it’s a great wedding venue and I love shooting there. Nicola & Simon had a beautiful day with bright blue skies so you couldn’t ask for more (especially with Sydney’s weather being very wet lately). Nicola’s preparation photos were done on-site at Jonah’s and the celebrant was Stephen Perry who did a fantastic job getting lots of laughs from the bridal party. The ceremony went very well and after some mingling with guests we did location photos at the Palm Beach Ferry Wharf and Palm Beach itself. It was a great day, so congrats guys!

Rachel & Michael – Tea Room Gunners Barracks

The Gunner’s Barracks is one of my favourite venues so it was great to be back there several times in October – firstly for Rachel & Michael’s wedding. I started with Rachel’s preparations and I love the shot of their dog looking very sad and left out! At least he was able to join us for a pre-wedding shoot a couple of weeks earlier. Rachel’s Jimmy Choo’s were very cool too. The ceremony was at the Barrack’s on the downstairs lawn area and it was beautifully decorated. The ceremony went very well and we did photos at the wall and at George’s Heights above the Barracks before heading back to the reception. Congrats guys! Like to share this with a friend?

Paulina & Nick – Botanic Gardens – QVB Tea Rooms

Phew, it was a super busy October and as such the blog has had zero attention! So time to show some recent weddings, starting with Paulina & Nick! I began the day with Paulina’s preparations at the Shangri-La Hotel, so we had a great view of all the rain rolling in! I loved the reminder that Nick put on Paulina’s iphone – very sweet! It wasnt looking good for an outdoor ceremony in the Botanic Gardens but with some positive belief Paulina & Nick decided to chance it anyway…..and it nearly paid off! Paulina made a beautiful (dry) entrance and then half way through the ceremony the rain came pouring down, but it did make for some great photos and it cleared up nicely for mingling and photos afterwards. We went to the Opera House and the Rocks for location shots, as well as the QVB itself as the reception Read more…
