Edwina & Michael | Wedding

Edwina & Michael were married on a beautiful but stormy day at Cremorne Point, followed by a reception at the Public Dining Room in Balmoral.

I started the morning with the girls getting ready at Edwina’s family home in Pymble. How stunning is the bouquet by My Violet.

Now the ceremony is where things get interesting. With dark stormy clouds ominously approaching, and by some miracle everyone arriving early, the ceremony went ahead about 15 minutes early. And it was perhaps the most beautifully timed decision, as it began bucketing down within minutes of the ceremony finishing.

We had planned to spend some time afterwards taking portraits around Cremorne Point, but with the weather being as it was, we decided to head straight to Balmoral ahead of the reception in the hopes that the weather may have cleared. As luck would have it, it did!

After the ceremony, we headed to Balmoral for the lunchtime reception, but before heading in, we spent a few minutes on the pier.

At the end of the reception, a water taxi arrived to take them to their hotel in the city. The sun was just beginning to set and the light looked incredible. Caterina & Ade asked me if I wanted to join them for the ride and take a few more portraits and I jumped at the chance. The results were amazing!

Lence & Chris | Wedding

Lence & Chris got married just a couple of weeks ago in one of the most intimate ceremonies I’ve photographed to date, just the couple and their 17 guests.

The ceremony was held at the Uniting Church in Vaucluse, followed by a lunch time reception at the Public Dining Room in Balmoral.

Lence surprised herself at how emotional she was walking down the aisle, I got a little choked up just watching.

We spent just 10 minutes out on the boardwalk for a few couple portraits before the reception started.
