I don’t even know where to begin to tell you about how incredible it was to be a part of Alice & James’ wedding. One of those days where you make it to the end and pinch yourself that you were there. A day where traditions weren’t included for tradition’s sake. Every single thing that happened, happened for a reason and was perfectly personalised so the day was 100% uniquely them.
Alice & James were married at Currawong Reserve in Palm Beach, before a reception at the Avalon Sailing Club.
We started the day, getting ready at an incredible house in Clareville overlooking Pittwater…and the story continues as we work our way through the photographs.
That smile. All day!
I loved that they didn’t let gender get in the way of having their closest friends in the bridal party.
The ceremony space, looked absolutely incredible, thanks to Chasing Arrows!
The day was packed full of thoughtful touches, including beginning the ceremony with an Acknowledgement of Country and little surprises like “Alice, you may kiss the groom!”
Everyone should look this happy as they walk back down the aisle!
After the ceremony, we stuck around Currawong Reserve for a some portraits, before moving on to the Palm Beach ferry wharf.
The light was simply perfect all day, I was in heaven!!
James and Alice chartered ‘The Elvina’ to take us from Palm Beach to the Avalon Sailing Club for the reception, and it was so much more special than it appears at first. You see, James’ grandfather spent decades driving this exact ferry to and from Church Point. So it really was a wonderful and unique way to remember him.
Chasing Arrows did an absolutely brilliant job styling the reception.
It seemed like everyone at the wedding could sing and/or play an instrument. So many talented friends!
The perfect speech should be equal parts lovely, funny & embarrassing!
When you completely tumble head over heels but recover like a boss because you’re fabulous :)
Alice & James, thank you so much for choosing me to capture your most incredible day!!
