Bright sunny Oatlands House wedding of Vu and Vivian

Vu and Vivian chose an Oatlands House wedding ceremony in the garden. They were blessed with a very fine day and didn’t have to think about wet weather plans at all.
Hair and make-up had begun early on for Vivian and the bridesmaids. They were getting ready at Vivian’s family home.
There’s something quite special about getting ready in a place you have known your whole life and perhaps the most immediate perspective is just how comfortable the family is in their own surroundings.
Life on a wedding day, of course, is thrown into a bit of a spin, and there are many extra people thrown into the mix so it can be very handy to have the relaxing effect that the family home brings.
Vu and his groomsmen called into the house briefly on the way to finish setting up the ceremony. But there was no first look, no sneak peek at each other. They were dutifully kept apart.
Vivian left home in her ride, a beautiful Rolls Royce, and was driven across to Oatlands House.
Vivian and her bridesmaids gathered in an upstairs room and quietly and happily offered prayers for the day as the guests arrived and seated below.
Vivian’s father walked with her down the aisle and as they met Vu he shook his hand and held it for a while and spoke to them both quietly for a minute. I loved that he let this moment happen.
Their celebrant was great because of his connection to them. He was from the church they attend, where they had met, and it clearly meant a lot to all of them together.
After the ceremony the guests enjoyed the hospitality at Oatlands while a couple of short speeches were made and family photographs taken.
A quick trip to Sydney University quadrangle was next for some formal photographs before the big reception at famous-for-its-food Rhodes Phoenix Restaurant.
There was so much going on the whole time with lots of music, much of it performed by Dani Bui, and the occasional guest appearance from a family member, some Asian games were played to great audience hilarity, Vu and Vivian joined in with every table for multiple toasts, and the dance floor rounded out much of the celebration.
It was a very fun wedding day and we wish Vu and Vivian double happiness!

Vivian’s beautiful dress is a Maggie Sottero gown which she purchased at Abbey Bridal. Her hair and makeup was done by Angelina My Le. They travelled in style in a wonderful Rolls Royce provided by Australia in Style. Entertainment at the reception was by Dani Bui. Inkster Productions was the videographer.

As an aside, it’s great to have the opportunity to work with cinematographer Matthew Inkster, from Inkster Productions. We’re very much in tune with how the other works these days, having worked together on multiple weddings and corporate work. I thoroughly enjoy how passionate Matthew is for his clients and totally admire how fully he throws himself into his work, capturing the day with what can only be described as love. He treats every wedding with respect, care and great friendliness.

If you’ve found the one, the love of your life, and you are now planning your wedding (and especially an Oatlands House wedding) and want beautiful photography to remember this special day then it’s time to talk to Sarah or myself. We take compelling, elegant and timeless stills. We capture the most valuable images in the world. Yours.
