Branka & Danijel | Wedding

Branka & Danijel eloped in the most beautiful intimate ceremony at the Balmoral Rotunda. Both their families live overseas, so it was just a handful of close friends that came along.

Everything was pared back. It was truly as simple as getting married, and that’s it. No getting ready photos, just simply arriving at the ceremony together in an Uber. A simple dress and a fabulous pair of shoes. The ceremony itself was short and sweet, but choc-full of sweet glances and knowing looks.

I love when a look tells a whole story.

They’re just so completely in love. It’s just beautiful to watch.

We spent an hour or so after the ceremony wandering around Rocky Point Island and back to the Balmoral Rotunda

Love the back of Branka’s dress!

Once we’d finished with the portraits, we met back up with the rest of their friends and headed across the road to Pasture of Balmoral for lunch. Unfortunately, there are no pictures of that as they wanted me to relax and join in without any pressure.

Branka & Danijel, it was such a pleasure to spend your wedding day with you, even if it was only a few short hours.

Faye & Ming | Elopement

Faye & Ming flew over from Singapore in February to elope in Sydney. We planned for the ceremony to coincide with the sunrise, but the clouds had other ideas. Still, it was incredible to capture their ceremony at Mrs Macquaries Chair amongst the silence of the city.

Despite having known each other for years, it was the first time Robyn Pattison & I have worked together. Her ceremonies are so incredibly beautiful!

The best ceremonies are the ones where everyone is doubled over laughing. Certainly more memorable than stiff and solemn. After all, it should be a joyous occasion!

After the ceremony, we left Mrs Macquaries Chair and spent another hour or so wandering around the city. From the Botanic Gardens to the Opera House

The Botanic Gardens are like 100 locations in one. Everywhere you turn, it’s a different backdrop, with a different feeling. I love it.

It felt like we were the only people in Sydney who were awake. So peaceful!

One thing is for sure, if you’re going to fly all the way to Sydney to elope, you simply must head to the Opera House steps for a few portraits.

Congratulations Faye and Ming. It was an absolute pleasure to spend the quiet of the morning with you. All the best back in Singapore!
