Romantic Sydney Wedding

You know what I love about high school sweeties tying the knot?  They are just so darn cute.  The kind of cute that comes with growing up together, and celebrating that years-long commitment in a fab shindig with all of your friends and family.  Case in point?  This adorable duo, who, with the help of Planned For Perfection, threw one crazy gorgeous party.  See it all captured by Rachael Muller in the full gallery.

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.

Peony Inspired Wedding Shoot + Film

Fun Fact: peonies can bloom for 100+ years! Its one of the heartiest (and prettiest) perennials around which is why we think this shoot from Styled by Linda is especially apropos for the upcoming wedding season. And we’re just as crazy about the bold blooms as we are about the stunning Anna Campbell gowns. Thankfully Le Motion Wedding Films and Silk Truffle Photography were there to lend their lenses for the day.

From Styled by LindaThis styled shoot was inspired by the bold and vibrant colors of peonies. Sydney is blessed with an abundance of this gorgeous bloom, what’s not to love about peonies! We wanted to capture its beauty together with equally gorgeous gowns, headpieces, veils and accessories.

The peony is one of the most popular flowers chosen by brides for their wedding. We often see the lighter and softer colors in bouquets and flower arrangements however for this shoot we wanted to inject a bit of color by using bright and bold colored flowers. We wanted to inspire brides to be more adventurous and daring with their choices of color their wedding. We wanted to create that feeling of warmth, romance and elegance that all brides want on their wedding day.

We had such a great team of collaborators who put in so much hard work on a very hot December day in Sydney. It was over 40 degrees and everyone worked tirelessly to bring everything together.

Relaxed Summer Wedding in Sydney

There’s nothing more divine than being young and in love. Which is why we’re wistfully charmed by Hannah and Dane’s relaxed summer wedding. These pictures from Mark and Kara Photography are just the tip of the iceberg too (you can find the whole gallery here). The cavernous church, beautiful bouquets, the quaint Q Station reception hall, and a whole throng of elated family and friends – this wedding has it all!

From Mark and Kara Photography…Hannah & Dane first met 10 years ago at Christian holiday camp for teens in Canberra in 2004, “we continued to meet each year at the camp and developed a strong friendship on the phone and through MSN – the good old days” says Hannah. “We began a long distance relationship between Canberra and Sydney in 2006, much to the shock of our parents. We would regularly talk on the phone and catch Murrays Buses between NSW and the ACT every month or so, and when we finished high school, Dane moved to Sydney so that we could live near each other”.

Hannah and Dane, both school teachers, continued to date through university, and now at the ages of 23 and 21, have already known each other for a decade. “We’ve known each other for half our lives, growing up together has seen us share many milestones.”

Dane proposed to his childhood sweetheart at sunrise in September 2012, at a lookout on Sydney’s middle harbour. ‘We were looking across the water from the Spit Bride to Manly Beach walk, I really couldn’t understand why we were awake so early until he finally pulled out a ring!”

Hannah and Dane married as soon as their university exams were finalized, keen to start the next chapter of their lives together. They wed at Petersham Baptist Church on December 7 2013, with a ceremony and afternoon tea for 250 guests. This was followed by a reception for 150 guests at Q Station in Manly. “We had drinks and canapes on the wharf followed by dinner, dancing and speeches in the heritage ballroom.” Guests were given homemade rocky road as a bomboniere, wrapped in brown paper and tied with a string. “It was the same secret recipe that I used to win Dane’s heart in the early days” says Hannah. “We wanted our wedding to be earthy, rustic and natural, so we went for creams, greens and native flowers to tie in with the rustic setting of the Q Station.”

Hannah wore a simple and classic ivory satin gown, deciding to not wear a veil and stay true to their dream of a relaxed wedding day. “I didn’t want a veil or anything over the top, I just wanted Dane to see me as myself.”

The couple spent their honeymoon travelling through the North Island of New Zealand in a camper van called Jane, for nine adventure filled nights!

From the Bride… Kenny and I have been together seven years, but marriage still wasn’t high on our radar… at least I thought it wasn’t, until Kenny proposed during a trip to Switzerland last year.

Due to family circumstances we decided to have our wedding as soon as possible and to keep it local.

Scrapping our original plan to get married in Italy, I started calling venues and luckily The Boathouse Palm Beach had an opening, on Valentine’s Day no less!

For two people who had never envisaged their wedding day we knew we had quite a feat in front of us throwing a wedding together in three months! So the theme pretty much chose itself – simple and elegant. One thing I knew I did want was a bouquet featuring roses as homage to my Grandma, which Wedding Flowers By Renee put together along with simple baby’s breath for my bridesmaids.

The day started early with Zada Hair in charge of hair and makeup, making the girls look even more beautiful than they already are. We had a short, simple ceremony with Jessie Cacchillo, styled by The Wedding PA and Waves & Weddings for 85 guests on the Northern Beaches.

Our wedding photographer friend couldn’t take the photos as he was in our wedding party, so he put us onto Dave from David Campbell Imagery who was a joy to work with and did a fantastic. He also has an amazingly fast turnaround time!

The Boathouse looked stunning when we got to the reception and far exceeded any expectations we had. I didn’t have a chance to eat much on the night but I am so glad I had a piece of our wedding cake created by Cakes Plus as its one of the most delicious things I have ever tasted. And it held of raining long enough for everyone to dance the night away!

So much love went into this wedding and we can’t thank our friends and family enough for all the help and time they gave in putting it together.

From the Bride… What a dreamy day we had! It was a sunny Friday afternoon on the beautiful Sydney Harbour in the stunning Mosman where we celebrated our wedding day with our closest family and friends. The theme was a very romantic styled wedding and with travel involved. Most guests flew in from overseas. Our save the dates were made as a luggage tag letter pressed in mint green, the invitations a passport, with a poem of our love story inside.

The theme colours were beautiful ivory’s, rich creams and blush pinks. The Bridesmaids were in a soft pastel mint, my favourite colour. Soft chignon styled hair for the bridesmaids while mine was soft and wavy. Stunning bouquets made up of Peonies and David Austin Roses. Finer details, Groom and Groomsmen had vintage cufflinks made up of maps from where they were born and one of Sydney to celebrate the occasion. Mint green belgium chocolate and peanut butter and cream salted caramel favours for our guests, handmade and put into boxes and hand tied with hand written name tags.
