Brooke & Phil – St Andrew’s Cathedral – Hyde Park – Star Room Cockle Bay
April 12, 2010
Brooke & Phil were such a great couple – full of life, fun and smiles! They were after a relaxed (and slightly crazy) style for their day and it wasnt hard to achieve with some real characters in the bridal party.
I did preparations photos for both Brooke & Phil at the Medina Apartments – right across the road from the church. I really like doing the groom preparations as this part of the day is often missed and the guys were a lot of fun.
The ceremony was at St Andrew’s Cathedral right next to Sydney Town Hall and it’s a simply stunning place to be married. The architecture of old churches (St Andrew’s dates from 1868) is something very special and it certainly made Brooke’s entrance and walk down the aisle even more breath taking.
After the ceremony we headed to Hyde Park for location photos and we got some great shots! Then it was on to Martin Place and a short stop under the Harbour Bridge (Phil proposed at the top of the bridge!) before the reception at the Star Room in Cockle Bay / Darling Harbour. The tables were all named after famous footballers – Phil is a Premier League soccer player – and the night was spectacularly set off with fireworks and some great dancing!
