Lizzie & Eric | Wedding

Lizzie & Eric were married last weekend. You might remember them from their engagement session at Lavender Bay.

I spent the early afternoon with the girls at Lizzie’s parents’ house for all the getting ready. I loved looking at all the family photos :)

Lizzie’s dress & shoes were by Collette Dinnigan. Simply elegant and absolutely stunning!

It was so sweet watching Eric in the lead up to the ceremony. The deep breath when the bridesmaids walked down the aisle…

…to trying to catch a glipmse around the corner…then the eyes full of tears as she appeared.

From the ceremony we made our way along the boardwalk at Lavender Bay towards Luna Park

The great thing about a wedding at Luna Park is getting to bypass the queues and do a few loops on the Ferris wheel. We had the most perfect sunset for it!

The reception was held in the Crystal Ballroom of the Crystal Palace.

Eric’s family is Armenian & it was incredible to be in and amongst the traditional dancing. EVERYONE was on their feet!

Lizzie & Eric | Engaged

Lizzie & Eric are getting married in less than 2 weeks and I can’t wait. I recently photographed their engagement session in and around Clark Park at Lavender Bay. It’s a place that is very near and dear to them. Not only did they live overlooking the park for a while, it’s the place they got engaged, and the place they’ll be getting married!

Lizzie’s face lights up every time she looks at Eric, it’s a wonderful thing to watch.

Sarah & Scott | Engaged

I love a good proposal story, it always tells you a lot about the couple.

Sarah & Scott’s story is very sweet & they both had the biggest smiles on their faces as Scott recounted the event. They were holidaying up north, and while Scott planned on proposing some time on the trip. He hadn’t quite figured out where or when…but the ring was burning a hole in his pocket. One day they were walking along the beach and the moment seemed right. He let her get a bit ahead, wrote that question in the sand, and called her back…she of course said yes, and the rest as they say is history!

A lot has happened since that day, most importantly the birth of their super adorable son Josh. As soon as I saw his eyes, I told them they had to bring him along to their engagement session!

They are a beautiful couple and great parents. I’m so looking forward to their October wedding!

Sarah & Scott’s engagement session was spread across Clarke Park and a few of the other parks in Lavender Bay. The view from the top was gorgeous!
