Caitlin & Adrian – St Benedict’s Glebe – Orso

McKay Photography

Caitlin & Adrian are such a lovely couple and their wedding day was awesome! The boys and girls preparations were a lot of fun – I loved the ring box Adrian’s parents made for them such a lovely idea. The ceremony featured lots of family from the page boys and flower girls right through to Father Jim. It was held at St Benedict’s Church in Glebe and afterwards we did some photos right on the church grounds that had beautiful ivy everywhere. We headed to Freshwater Headland for some more photos and after a shower of rain got some great shots on the rocks and the pool there. Then onto Orso at the Spit for the reception. It’s a great venue that looks even better after a recent refurbishment. The light, open room and views of the boats and harbour are really beautiful. Make up for the day was by Read more…


Emma & Corey – St Thomas’ Church North Sydney – Orso

St Thomas’ Church in North Sydney is one of my favourites so it was exciting to be shooting Emma & Corey’s wedding there in November. We had a great start to the day as I could photograph both their preparations. It’s always nice to get both preparations done as it breaks the ice with all the bridal party and makes the location shoot run just a little smoother. The weather was perfect and the ceremony at St Thomas’ was amazing. The aisle is super long and I just love the view from the small balcony where you can get a really wide shot, plus take a group shoot as everyone exits. We did some bridal party photos at St Thomas’ before heading to Chowder Bay where we boarded a boat to have a Harbour cruise. The reception was at Orso which is an awesome wedding venue. The decor at Orso Read more…


Katrina & David – Orso – Balmoral Beach

People often ask what happens to the photos if it rains on your wedding day…. of course, there isnt a lot you can really do but Katrina & David’s wedding is a great example that rain is not a disaster. The ceremony was held at Orso Restaurant – a great wedding venue on the Spit Road in Mosman. We went to nearby Balmoral Beach for photos and got some great shots in between light showers of rain….. and with a lot of help from groomsmen keeping us all relatively dry with umbrellas! Congratulations guys!


Tabitha & Matt – St Ignatius Riverview – Clontarf Beach – Orso

January has been hot! Phew. Tabitha & Matt had a 40+ day complete with a change that bought cool winds and rain in the afternoon. I did preparation photos at Tabitha’s place and Sarah covered Matt’s preparations before heading to the ceremony at the school chapel of St Ignatius’ College, Riverview. It’s a beautiful place and blessedly the chapel had air-conditioning. The ceremony was lovely and ended with some beautiful singing by a friend of Tabitha & Matt’s. We did a range of shots with the bridal party at Riverview just before the front hit. We then headed to Curl Curl and Freshwater but it was rather windy and we had to pause for a rain break at Freshwater. We decided to do a quick stop at Clontarf Beach and the shots looked fantastic with the wind tearing across the sand. The wedding reception was at Orso on the Spit Read more…


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…


Rachel & Rob – Christ Church – Kirribilli – Balmoral Beach – Orso

Rachel and Rob were married at Christ Church in Lavendar Bay, a spectacular old church with beautiful stone and lovely trees outside. Location photos were at Kirribilli and Balmoral Beach – we just missed a heavy shower of rain in between but it made for an amazing shot with a rainbow at Balmoral! The reception was at Orso at the Spit. This is a great wedding venue and the arrival of the bridal party on the Orso boat is really unique. There was more rain and lightning that night….. and not just outside but on the dance floor as Rachel & Rob performed THE BEST first dance I have ever seen! It was a Dirty Dancing routine complete with the big lift at the end – just unbelievable! By the way, Rachel & Rob were the fourth couple I have photographed from a group of their friends, so it was Read more…
