The day before their Sydney wedding I ventured across town to go to Nathan’s family home and then Jennifer’s for their Tea Ceremonies. I remain entirely entranced by the variations of the Asian Tea Ceremonies and this was no exception. Family members had gathered en masse as the formal introductions were made. An early night was called for before the celebrations of the next day.
Nathan and Jennifer were gifted a beautiful Sydney morning for their wedding which matched up really nicely with an ever-enthusiastic bridal party. Undoubtedly an enthusiasm that had a lot to do with the fact that, after more than half a lifetime and a decade and a half together, Jennifer and Nathan were getting married. That pre-history made for a really friendly wedding too – a real joy to be a part of an occasion when everyone knows each other well. And that provided lots of moments to capture.
After the ceremony and family photos we headed to Bare Island, quite a relief to get the sea breezes on what was now turning into a hot day, and then a couple of quick stops next to the Harbour before ending up at Waterview at Bicentennial Park for the reception. With plenty of great food, lots of wonderful speeches, copious dancing and Photobooth fun everyone was in the mood to help Jennifer and Nathan celebrate in the best way possible.
And then they went on a European Honeymoon visiting, amongst other places Italy. More about that on another day. We’re very grateful to have had the opportunity to be a part of their day and wish Nathan and Jennifer much happiness (double happiness!!).
If you’re taking the plunge into marriage and would love beautiful Sydney wedding photography 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.
