Robyn & Brad – Manly Pacific Hotel

Robyn & Brad had a beautiful wedding with the ceremony at the Manly Pacific Hotel. It was a lovely day with fantastic weather just perfect for the location shots outside at Fairy Bower Rock Pool and North Head. Visit my facebook page McKay Photography Facebook here.

Amy & Tristan – St Thomas’ North Sydney – Sebel Pier One

Amy & Tristan had an awesome wedding day – I started with Tristan and the boys in Manly and got some great shots of the preparations, especially the red MG and crossing the road in Manly. It was then a short trip to the Manly Pacific Hotel for Amy’s preparations. The ceremony was at St Thomas’ Church in North Sydney – it’s an amazing building with stunning architecture and Rev Richard James and Judy are an awesome pair to conduct the marriage ceremony. We did some family and group photos outside the church plus some shots with Amy & Tristan and the bridal party before heading to Kirribilli for more photos and then over the Bridge to near the Sebel Pier One where the reception was held. The Sebel is a great venue with fantastic views over the harbour. We had a beautiful sunset and then a wonderful evening of Read more…

Lani & Steve – Le Kiosk Shelly Beach

Lani & Steve’s was a very local wedding for me and I started the day with Lani’s preparations just around the corner from our studio at the Manly Pacific Hotel. I loved the “Dont’s For Wives” book – good for a laugh but definitely not for modern relationships! The ceremony & reception was held at Le Kiosk – nearby at Shelly Beach and one of my favourite venues. It has great food, there’s an intimate indoor space, and it has an outside courtyard area as well. Lani & Steve held the ceremony at the back of the courtyard area and it had a lovely feel of a tropical garden setting. The ceremony itself was beautiful with all the family involved and plenty of smiles and laughter! We did some family photos near a big tree on Shelly Beach. The kids were fantastic and we got some great shots of them Read more…

Simone & David – Delwood Beach – Balmoral Beach – Sergeants Mess Chowder Bay

Simone & David are a lovely couple and if you could bottle up & sell the smiles and happiness they showed on their wedding day I’m sure the world would become a better place very quickly! I started with Simone’s preparations at the Manly Pacific Hotel and the ceremony was held at Delwood Beach near Manly. It’s a great spot, nicely hidden away from crowds and it’s the perfect location for a beach wedding. The entrance by Simone and her bridesmaid down the stairs and along the sand was spectacular and the ceremony had some very touching moments…..and plenty of the smiles I mentioned earlier! We headed to Balmoral Beach for location photos and captured some beautiful images on the jetty. The reception was at the Sergeants Mess in Chowder Bay – a wedding reception venue that continues to impress me. It was the perfect night for guests to mingle Read more…

Kyara & Ray – Manly Golf Club

Kyara & Ray were recently married at Manly Golf Club. We did some preparation shots with Kyara at the Manly Pacific Hotel, and the make up was by Rebecca at Newell Image. Rebecca has been at quite a few weddings with me and she always does fantastic work! The day was a bit wet (what has happened to the weather in Sydney lately?!) so the ceremony was held inside at the Manly Golf Club Chapel – a really great back up option for rain. Their celebrant was Jan Littlejohn who conducted a very lovely ceremony. The rain cleared by the time we went outside for photos on the golf course. We got some great shots in a short space of time and then headed back inside for family photos in the Founders Room as the clouds rolled in again! The reception itself was fantastic with beautiful table settings and the Read more…

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!
