Monika & Dan – Freshwater Beach – Curl Curl – Pilu

Monika & Dan’s wedding at Freshwater Beach and Pilu was a fantastic day. I love a real beach wedding and this one had it all. Being based overseas it was a great catch up with all their friends & family and in such a beautiful laid back location. The ceremony started off on a great note when Rocky the pageboy strutted down halfway down the aisle, paused with a hand nonchalantly in the pocket, then continued to much laughter at his modelling skills. We kept under umbrellas immediately after the ceremony but once the showers eased we did photos with the bridal party on Freshwater Beach and also headed to the dunes above Curl Curl Beach. We got some great shots! The cars for the day were from Wedding Cars of Distinction and I cant recommend Peter and the team more highly for their consistently professional service.

Sasha & Andrew – Freshwater View Reserve – Curl Curl – Pilu

Sasha & Andrew were after a relaxed, beach style for their wedding day, and with a ceremony & reception venue both within a stones throw of the beach, they got just that! There was also a strong vespa theme at the wedding – based on their form of transport around London – that extended from a vespa parked outside the park, to beer cooloers, to the top of the wedding cake! I started the day with Sasha’s preparations while Mikala went to Andrew’s house. We all met up at Freshwater View Reserve which is a secluded park perched high above Freshwater Beach. It’s a lovely spot and with sunshine & clear skies it looked just perfect. The ceremony went beautifully and with plenty of time to mingle following the ceremony the afternoon felt very relaxed. We headed to Curl Curl Beach for photos with the bridal party, but only after Read more…

Olivia & Louis – St Andrew’s Manly – Curl Curl – Le Kiosk Shelly Beach

Olivia & Louis’ wedding was one of my last for 2009 and it was all very local for me – Olivia’s preparations were in Curl Curl, the ceremony literally just up the hill at St Andrew’s in Manly….. and the reception at Le Kiosk at Shelly Beach! St Andrew’s Presbyterian is a lovely church built in the late 1800’s and constructed from local white sandstone. I have been to quite a few weddings here and I just love the place. The minister Derek is such a great guy and he makes the whole wedding ceremony very relaxed. After the ceremony at St Andrew’s we went to North Curl Curl for photos – we got some fantastic shots! It was then on to Le Kiosk at Shelly Beach for the reception. Shelly Beach is such a great spot so having a wedding reception right there is very cool – it makes Read more…

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.

Chloe & Brett – Manly Pacific – Freshwater View Reserve – Pilu

Chloe & Brett were married at a favourite outdoor ceremony location of mine – Freshwater View Reserve. It’s a great spot for a picnic, or some quiet time taking in the amazing view…… or a wedding ceremony! Preparation photos were at the Manly Pacific Hotel (the newly refurbished rooms were great) and it was so lovely to see the family super excited & emotional about the day! The ceremony at Freshwater View Reserve was beautiful, then we did location shots at Curl Curl Beach and Freshwater Beach. As you can see we had amazing weather and a lot of fun! The reception was at Pilu Restaurant, a great venue right on Freshwater Beach. Janelle from Saltwater Weddings was the wedding coordinator and did a wonderful job! The day went very smoothly and the table decorations were stunning. Thanks Janelle!
