SYDNEY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER
SECLUSIONS BLUE MOUNTAINS WEDDING
Emily + Paul
Ceremony & Reception : Seclusions Blue Mountains
Sometimes you have to travel to another country to find the love of your life. Paul was born in the UK and travelled to Australia a few years ago. One night he met Emily and the rest is history. Even Paul had me tear up during his speech with how much he adores Emily and can’t wait start their own family together.

GROOM PREP PHOTOS & PORTRAITS
Polka dot socks, Budweiser beers, dancing and some good looking dudes in navy suits …
Not so subtle brand placement – Budweiser beer for the groom and groomsmen.

OUTDOOR CEREMONY IN THE BLUE MOUNTAINS
With the popularity of Drones, naturally a Drone made an appearance for a fly over after the ceremony.
Just a taste of how I shoot family photos. The couple get more combinations that what is shown here.
BARN RECEPTION AT SECLUSIONS BLUE MOUNTAINS
Sydney bride Emily, along with the help from family and friends, styled the venue with gathered bunches of wheat, wildflowers and foliage and hessian table runners. In the middle of the room, hanging from above the bridal table was a timber ladder decorated with an array of flowers and greenery. A nice contrast to the beautiful timber beams and rustic corrugated iron wall which adds loads of character to the reception room. Being a chilly winter wedding in the mountains, the guests were gifted with a pair of woolly socks.
The cheese wheel wedding cake was from Formaggi Ocello in Surry Hills where you can find the finest selection of Italian, French & Australian farmhouse cheeses – yum!

BLUE MOUNTAINS WEDDING PHOTOS
The morning of the wedding, I found this secluded bush setting as the location for the afternoon’s bridal portraits. It has to be one of my favourite wedding photography locations ever!
A BARN RECEPTION AT SECLUSIONS WEDDING VENUE
Get a taste of those mountains at sunset! Seclusions Blue Mountains is truly a magical wedding venue.
The MC presented all the kids with a pair of headphones incase he dropped some profanities …
A week out from the wedding, I received a call from Paul, letting me in on a little secret surprise he had in stall for Emily. A fireworks display!
Months of dance rehearsals paid off, Paul & Emily have some moves, impressing the guests with a choreographed number.
