Ana & Mark | Wedding

Ana is one of my best friends, you may recognise her as the bouquet catcher from my wedding :)

We’ve known each other for over 13 years, all the way back to the first day of O Week at uni! Despite the fact that we usually only see each other a handful of times each year, we always talk at least twice a week.

Ana & Mark were married way back in January on Australia Day! It was so much fun, with the added bonus of The Fisherman tagging along and carrying my bags for most of the day.

I even slept over at her parent’s house the night before to help get everything finalised.

Except for the Nutbush. This is Mark’s dad. When I met him in the morning while the boys were getting ready, he asked me if I thought they’d play the Nutbush at the reception. I knew it wasn’t on the playlist (as Ana & I were working on it half the night), but I told him I was pretty sure I could pull some strings. He got all excited and said “I hope they do, because when it comes on, I’ll carve it up”. And he most certainly did.

I’m not entirely sure of the origins or meaning, but there’s a Croatian of throwing lollies and coins for all the kids to collect. They loved it!

Jasmine & Ivan | Wedding

Jasmine & Ivan are high school sweethearts, which I think it just about the most adorable thing ever.  They were married at the end of August in what was a truly spectacular day, start to finish.

I started out with the girls in Carlton, where the excitement was electric. Everyone was buzzing and joking and there wasn’t a hint of nerves or stress anywhere.

We then headed to The Gardens on Forest in Peakhurst for the ceremony.

Jasmine got completely choked up during her vows and I think the entire crowd of family and friends cried along with her as she made it through.

We then headed to Ballast Point Park in Balmain for an hour or so. I could have spent a whole day here. There’s so many amazing backdrops locations around the park.

Sarah & Scott | Wedding

Sarah & Scott’s wedding was held on one of the most glorious Saturday’s Sydney has seen for months! You might remember them, and their adorable son Joshua, from their Engagement Session earlier this year.

Sarah’s dress was simply gorgeous, but it wasn’t the one she originally bought. It ended up getting stuck in Customs for a couple of weeks, and with no idea when it would ultimately be released, she had to bite the bullet and buy another one. Once she was dressed, all of her bridesmaids said it was a great thing to have happened because they couldn’t imagine her wearing anything else.

I love the way her father looks like he’s bursting with pride when he sees her for the first time.

Apparently the boys do a lot of ‘planking’ at work. I was holding my breath taking this shot, so nervous he’d end up in the harbour!

The reception was held in the Sunset Room of the Crystal Palace at Luna Park. The room looked beautiful decorated in all white.
