When a bride wears a pink gown, you know it’s going to be an awesome wedding. That’s a fact. And when that gown is designed by the bride herself AND that wedding is held in one of the world’s most amazing cities (aka Sydney), it’s awesome and then some. Add to the mix one breathtaking image after another snapped up by Beautiful Moments Photography and it’s a seriously pretty, seriously pink and seriously perfect gallery. Join me there for more.
From Beautiful Moments Photography… Anastasia and Izzie’s wedding was a culturally infused event that took place in Sydney. Anastasia’s vision for a feminine and romantic wedding was centered around the beautiful wedding dress that she designed herself. The dress featured soft latte ruffles and an intricately hand-sewn pale pink organza and lace bodice encrusted with beads and crystals. Anastasia got ready at the Grand Hyatt Sydney with amazing views of the Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge and then took a water taxi to her ceremony and reception location on the other side of Sydney Harbour. The ceremony took place on the edge of the cliff at Chowder Bay with the spectacular Sydney skyline in the distance. A saxophone player serenaded the congregation as Anastasia walked down the aisle and again as the couple departed the ceremony.
The cake was designed to replicate the gorgeous wedding dress that Anastasia wore and was made with delicious chocolate cake. Izze’s and Anastasia’s Greek and Turkish heritage were honored during the reception with traditional drummers and bouzouki players entertaining the guests as the bridal party entered the reception. The bride and groom then went straight into traditional Greek and Turkish dancing, which delighted the guests who were a mixture of Greek, Turkish and Australian backgrounds. The entire evening was filled with a festive vibe and was an absolute pleasure to photograph.
