It’s perhaps because of the country connections that Luke and Sarah have, that they were both relaxed and calm, looking forward to all that their Italian Village wedding day would bring, and not sweating the small stuff.
Sarah was in the expert hands of Simona, having the last touches done to hair and make-up. Luke was dressed and ready to go… to the corner pub for a beer or two with some of his family and friends.
Once Sarah was ready she walked around to the pub and, with Luke calmly waiting for a first look, held his hand and then walked into his arms. Then a drive round to the Botanic Gardens in the family car was next. With time prior to the ceremony Luke and Sarah had decided to give a few minutes to photography, just the two of them.
It gave us the opportunity to use the forecourt of the Sydney Opera House too. A quiet day made even quieter through some photoshop!
Sarah’s Dad walked her down the lawn to Luke where they said all that needed to be said about their love for one another, and kissed, and laughed. Knowing that rain was headed toward us (and Sydney certain has had plenty of that in the last month) we quickly did family photographs overlooking the harbour, and just as the last group was being photographed the first rains, that had held off so helpfully, fell heavily and coolly.
Luke had booked, via Uber, a car to drive us around the to the Rocks, more specifically to the Italian Village. We did a slow stroll toward the reception, taking opportunity during another rain break to shoot a little more. And during the evening, as the rain fell softly, we popped outside to see if their might not be a little magic as well.
Congratulations Luke and Sarah!
If you’re taking the plunge into marriage and would love beautiful photography (especially an Italian Village wedding) 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.
