It’s been a long time since I updated this blog, especially with wedding work! Not because I haven’t been shooting, but I’ve had other things going on….such as Antarctica! As such, I’ll keep these next few blog posts short. I’ve worked with some amazing clients over the past 12 months and can’t wait to show them!!
Speaking of cold, wet and gloomy places like Antarctica, that brings me to a wedding I shot in 2014 on the amazing Fort Denison – a small island right in the middle of Sydney Harbour with uninterrupted views of the Sydney Harbour Bridge & Opera House. A truly special location and one that I’ve wanted to work on for a long time.
It was always going to be a wet wedding day for Kate & Steve. It was raining when I arrived at the Harbour Rocks Hotel, The Rocks and it was even more so when we caught the water taxi to Fort Denison.
But a little water wasn’t going to ruin this wedding…and with a stern nod from Kate, the entire ceremony was directed outside to the top of the island in the elements. To their credit, both Kate and Steve opted not to have an umbrella and you couldn’t wipe the smile of either of their faces!
There’s something classically romantic about the rain at night with the beautiful Sydney Harbour skyline in the background, a stunning bride in a designer dress standing there with her soon-to-be husband. It has love written all over it!!
After the quick ceremony it was time to move downstairs to the reception area which was expertly designed and configured by the staff at Fort Denison. Considering the weather conditions and time delays with the rain, they handled everything perfectly and nothing was too much hassle for them. It’s no wonder they’re one of Sydney’s top venues!
A few speeches were said, some tears and laughs then it was over to the DJ who got the dance floor moving till it was time for my water taxi to take me off this little island paradise in the middle of Sydney Harbour.
I’m really proud of these wedding photographs. With rain and wind, not a lot of light and changing plans I still think they show some really great emotion and a classic romance story. Even more so, both Kate and Steve were extremely happy, which is all I ever look for!
