From the moment we met with Alex & Chris we knew we were going to have a fabulous time photographing their wedding, we just clicked. Alex is an event manager (Jen's background) so we immediately connected and enjoyed the details together.
The day was lovely, a litte overcast but that never put a dampener on the mood at all. We met Alex at the Manly Shore Holiday Apartments with her whole family, everyone was fussing and loving very excited about the day. Including her two young cousins who were the "Junior Groomsmen". Then onto meet the boys at St Mary's Catholic Church Manly where the ceremony was held.
Following the ceremony we took the bridal party to Georges Heights Headland in Mosman, one of our favourite locations with is sweeping views of the harbour and the historic walls and battlements. This was lots of fun, with lots of joking and laughter we all enjoyed ourselves. Then onto Taronga Zoo where they couple and bridal party were allowed into the park after closing for some sunset photographs and photos with the giraffes.... however the giraffes were a little surprised to see us and ready for bed so the little boys had to do some coaxing to get them to come and say hello.
The reception was lovely, with Alex's attention to detail everywhere. They went with the animal theme, as the reception was at the Taronga Zoo Function Centre, and had origami animals at the table numbers, plus home made sauces for each guest. The speeches were lots of fun, and going with their eastern European heritage even a vodak toast or two, before heading to the dancefloor to round off a great night.
