Athol Hall Wedding - Stephanie & Garth
Stephanie and Garth’s big day flaunted a range of unique people, places and experiences that were exciting for me to capture on camera. Situated in Watson’s Bay, St Peter’s Church had an old fashioned, intimate English feel with sandstone walls and wooden interior. From the moment the bride walked down the aisle there was a lovely sense of connection between the bride, groom and their guests.
The couple organised a boat to ferry the guests from Watson’s Bay to Mosman on a two-hour boat ride around the harbour with Rosman Cruises. Upon the cruise there were speeches, drinks, cake… and pigeon shooting! This was a first for me as guests aimed into Sydney Harbour; they took their shots as I took mine. I love it when people think of these creative and unique ways for their guests to bond. It’s a great way to make a day memorable. To make things even better we lucked out with shepherds delight. The incredible sunset captured beautifully on camera with silhouettes in the background of the Sydney Harbour Bridge complimenting the happy couple. It was a pleasure to shoot.
The ferry then took the guests to Athol Hall in Mosman for the reception. Australian bush flowers dotted the tables with brightly lit bulbs hanging above the night ended with everybody dancing in the moonlight.
