From The Bride…Ken and I had known each other for many years, having met back when he was a helpful senior in Uni. Through chance and circumstance, our friendship brought us closer together until we decided to take our relationship to the next level.

That was 2 years ago.

Now that the wedding is only months away, I look back at the moments that defined our romance with unbridled fondness. Having a great friend for a lover is having your cake and eating it too. There is intimacy with trust. There is passion with joy. There is solace with adversity. I wanted it to last forever.

Which is why I said “YES!!” when he asked. It started with a romantic candlelight dinner at one of our favourite restaurants in town, followed by a gentle stroll by the moonlit foreshore. As we approached a secluded bench overlooking the harbour, he sat me down and disappeared momentarily, only to return with a bouquet of beautiful red roses. Within them was a surprise; a ring box! Filled with anticipation I flipped it open, only to find to my complete dismay that it was empty!!

I must have looked ridiculous when I turned to face him, a mixture of frustration and disappointment. Of course, there he was on one knee with a cheeky smile on his face, producing the ring from his pocket. He always loved to keep me guessing although this time I could’ve done without the suspense!

We spent the week leading up to our engagement shoot concerned as the gloomy (and occasionally somewhat rainy) weather threatened to interfere. Thankfully the sun was shining through practically the entirety of the session, leaving us with a truly magnificent backdrop. We were also fortunate enough to have met with the most amazing wedding vendors — Jenny Sun Photography, Amy Chan Hair & Make up Artistry, Chanele Rose Flowers and Styled by Linda, who had all combined to make the day not only possible but incredibly special. We definitely had a memorable time out in the sun!

Romantic Sydney Wedding

From Planned For Perfection… Childhood sweethearts Susie and Jonno’s wedding was always going to be a wonderful day full of love and laughter – a long awaited celebration with their family and friends from church, high school and university, all of whom were so excited to see their relationship flourish from a high school romance to Mr. and Mrs. over the last seven years.

Susie and her bridesmaids left from Susannah’s mothers house in Five Dock, with the girls watching the brides favourite childhood movie, Disney’s Aladdin, taking it in turns to have their hair and makeup done, whilst Jonno and his groomsmen got ready at the family home in Gordon.

The wedding ceremony took place at St. Matthews Anglican Church in West Pymble, where the couple had met years earlier and had worshipped for many years. An afternoon tea in the church rooms followed the service, before the bridal party drove to Lane Cove National Park for some fun photographs.

The couple chose the trendy Sydney dance lounge, a rustic harbour side location in Walsh Bay for their wedding reception, arriving in style in Susie’s father’s Cobra with the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge the perfect backdrop for some beautiful wedding photographs. They loved its location right in the heart of Sydney, with its cosy, cool and relaxed atmosphere being perfect for their cocktail-style reception, enabling them to mingle with everyone they loved!

There was a constant flow of chilled Champagne and wine from Susannah’s father’s Hunter Valley Vineyard, a choice of trendy cocktails as well as a selection of delicious finger food, served in bento boxes and on slate platters, including Fresh king prawns served with a dill and lime aioli, Rice paper rolls with Asian greens and sweet chilli dipping sauce, soy and wasabi, Salt and pepper squid with lemon and aioli, Lamb skewers with tahini and yoghurt dressing, Vietnamese rare beef salad with crisp Asian vegetables with sweet chilli and lime dressing, Pad Thai noodle with chicken, rice noodles, Asian greens and coriander.

The bridal party climbed the staircase in the middle of the old warehouse, giving speeches to the guests below and where Susie threw her bouquet to the single ladies below. Cutting of the wedding cake and first dance were followed by a night of partying before the guests lined up to make a sparkler arch which the happy couple ran through en-route to the Five star Pier One hotel in Central Sydney before jetting off to an idyllic two weeks on a pacific island.
