Julie & John | Wedding

Julie & John were married back in December at Quay Restaurant on the first day of Summer!

Everyone got ready together at the Holiday Inn at The Rocks, and we spent the first hour or so wandering the harbour foreshore and some of the laneways around The Rocks.

Julie wore a stunning Lisa Ho dress and to die for glittery Jimmy Choo shoes.

The timing of the ceremony was perfectly coordinated with the departure of a cruise ship in dock at the Overseas Passenger Terminal.

As the ship departed, it seemed like all 3000 passengers cheered, waves and wished the couple well!

Patty & John | Wedding

Patty & John’s wedding was quite different for me. The entire ceremony and much of the reception were spoken in Korean and it completely changed the way I saw things for the day. I couldn’t rely on hearing beautiful words and anticipating a reaction, everything was visual, and it was incredible. One thing I know for certain is that love and laughter translate in every language!

Everyone got ready at the Shangrila Hotel in The Rocks. While I’ve done a few first looks in the past, it was the first time I’ve had a bride and groom actually get ready together. Admittedly, John left before Patty got into her dress, but it was very sweet to watch her putting on his bow tie :)

The ceremony was held at St Mary’s Cathedral. Only a few weeks after Kami & Stephen’s wedding there!

John had to carry Patty around the room as a symbol that he would always take care of her.

Louise & Todd | Wedding

Louise & Todd were married a few weeks ago on what turned out to be a gorgeous day, despite some terrible clouds in the morning.

I started out with the girls in Bondi Junction. Louise wore a stunning dress by Karen Willis Holmes!
