What a wedding day, amazing couple, amazing locations, amazing light.... it had it all!
Suzie the bride was so excited and gorgeous, and our biggest challenge for the day was to get Andrew to stop talking and telling jokes long enough to take his photo! We have hundreds of shot of him talking and everyone else laughing....
This stunning Sydney spring day started with Suzie and her bridesmaids getting ready at her parents place. The atmosphere was relaxed, excited and bubbly (a great description for Suzie herself). We then met Andrew at Clarkes Point Reserve where their ceremony took place under a marquee with Sydney Harbour in the background. The ceremony was conducted by a family friend, and celebrant, Caroline Hopwood, it was very personal with the couple even writing their own reading.
Then the couple and their bridal party caught a water taxi across to Cockatoo Island for the bridal shoot. What fun we had with these guys, the light was amazing and we were spoilt of choice of locations on the island itself. There was bush fires in the Blue Mountains which created the most amazing light at sunset, I haven't done any colour work on these images this is exactly what the light was like.... The smoke in the atmosphere also created that amazing moonrise shown in these photos and I also blogged about after the wedding.
The reception was held at Deckhouse Woolwich, stunning spot, beautiful food and service, plus it was great fun. Andrew is an Event Manager (it was great we knew lots of the same people and got on like a house on fire, but I digress), so the evening was filled with all sorts of surprises for the guests. They had an exhibition of photographs, the couple had taken on their many travels, set up for pre dinner drinks. The guests then got to take a photo home a the end of the night. There was a Chinese Tea Ceremony, part of Andrew's Malaysian heritage. They also held a raffle at each table for the framed images, and the digital camera which they had provided each table for the guests to take photos on the night. As you can see from our photos everyone had a ball....
