Katrina & Andrew | Wedding

There’s something about weekday weddings that gets me every time.

Katrina & Andrew were married on a Friday back in late October on a picture perfect Spring day.

I started out with the boys getting ready at Freshwater. I arrived to see them all hanging out watching a movie, passing round a footy while eating fish & chips, but I managed to at least get Andrew organised before I walked out the door :)

Next, I was off to the Sebel Hotel in Manly to very different scene. Hair and makeup all but finished, with glasses of champagne all round.

The ceremony was held at Spit West Reserve at Mosman. A gorgeous little park tucked out of sight! A huge shout out to Girl Friday Weddings for the incredible job of setting up the ceremony and reception. Seriously amazing!

Side note to future brides and grooms – don’t feel like you need to have an equal number of bridesmaids and groomsmen!

I like how the rocks are almost forming a heart behind them :)

The reception was held across the road at Zest. A gorgeous contemporary venue, with the most incredible timber work throughout. It gives such a warmth and intimacy to the space!

After the bridal waltz, the dancefloor was jam packed the entire evening. Even the dessert was served on platters roaming the dancefloor! The music was by Sincopa Trio. A great bunch of guys who fuse a DJ with live percussion and saxophone. The vibe was electric!

Carly & Michael | Wedding

I’m beyond excited to be sharing Carly & Michael’s wedding today after being featured on Style Me Pretty this morning :)

It’s hard to find the words to describe Carly & Michael’s wedding day. You may remember them from their gorgeous engagement session at Freshwater, on the Northern Beaches.

Their wedding was, in short, amazing. Full of love, laughter, tender moments, big smiles, little details and a few tears.

While the sky threatened rain ominously throughout the day, there was never more than a sprinkle when we needed to be outside!

Check out Carly’s dress. So unbelievably unique, and it fit her like a glove.

Carly sent over a gift for Michael to open while he was getting ready. He was caught off guard and just smiled ear to ear.

I loved this moment between Carly & her sister once she was dressed and ready.

I always love watching the bride’s parents faces when they see their daughter fully dressed for the first time.

Carly & Michael spent months making 1000 paper cranes together to decorate their ceremony and reception.

They shared their first dance to “It’s oh so quiet” by Bjork. I really hope someone got it all on video, because stills can’t even begin to express the awesomeness that was the routine.

We walked outside for a few night portraits, and they just started dancing alone on the grass. Nothing says happiness quite like spontaneous dancing.

Carly & Michael, congratulations again, I wish you both the world of happiness!
