Sydney Wedding: Brittany & Anthony

After a Summer of rain and many wet weekends, we awoke to a spectacular day in late February for Brittany and Anthony’s wedding. After so many days of horrible weather, there was an energy in the air and I knew that it was going to be a cracker of a day for a wedding! Upon arriving at Brittany’s family home, preparations were well under way and the atmosphere was a combination of peace and excitement. I’ve never been involved in a wedding before which involved such calm preparations, my own included! It was a perfect start, which set the tone for the remainder of the day to flow smoothly.

There were so many great images from the wedding that I found it difficult to select ones to blog. I apologise in advance for the length of this post but hope that you enjoy them!

While I was photographing the girls getting ready, Ian headed to Anthony’s family home to capture the guys’ preparations.

The ceremony was held at the gorgeous All Saint’s Anglican Church at Parramatta. It was a beautiful celebration of Brittany and Anthony’s love for each other and, most importantly, for their Lord and Saviour.

After spending time mingling with the guests, we headed down to Parramatta River for the family and bridal portraits. We were fortunate to add a second location, stopping at Western Sydney Regional Parklands on the way to the reception at St John’s Park Bowling Club.

Western Sydney Regional Parklands is home to a playground featuring a flying fox. Nautrally, the bridal party decided to have a little fun which made for some unique images!

Beautiful!

Brittany and Anthony are fans of Super Mario and so their wedding contained various elements of this. On our arrival at the reception, we were totally blown away by the Super Mario themed cake which was made by Brittany’s Mum Sandie, with the help of a family friend. Each tier contained different aspects of Super Mario, kind of like the different levels in the game, and the detail was amazing!

Kids are an important part of Brittany and Anthony’s lives and so there were plenty who attended the wedding and reception. A couple of tables containing activities for the kids were set up at the reception which I thought was a genius idea. The kids were entertained for hours!

Brittany and Anthony, thank you so much for inviting us to photograph your wedding. We had a fantastic day and it was such a blessing to have been able to celebrate with you! I wish you both many moons of happiness (excuse the pun – Brittany and Anthony’s surname is Moon) and pray that you continue to grow closer to each other as you seek to follow Jesus in your lives.

Orange Wedding: Stuart and Linda

Stuart and Linda met several years ago when attending a Scout event. Since that day, their love has grown and they decided to commit their lives to each other in front of family and friends on the 22nd October, 2011.

They chose to marry at the very place they met – Canobolas Scout Camp, just outside of Orange. Stuart and Linda were blessed with beautiful weather for their big day and spent some time around Lake Canobolas for their wedding portraits.

Thank you so much Stuart and Linda for inviting me to tag along and be your second photographer. I had a blast and it was wonderful to celebrate your special day with you!

Here are a few images from the day…
