When you meet with a bride & groom for the first time and go over their wedding plans to find out that they are getting married at one of Sydney’s most amazing destinations, that the best man is your best friends little bro, and that they want to incorporate a battle with light sabres, Harry Potter wands and Harley Quinn’s hammer, your inner geek squeals with delight that you have found your people!
I had the most amazing time with my wonderful assistant, Brett from Hand in Hand Photography as we went about capturing Matt & Kate’s incredible day.
On the grounds of the spectacular Dunbar House on Watsons Bay, Kate met Matt at the end of the aisle in an intimate ceremony followed by canapés and dinner inside. We ventured up to Gibson’s Beach, a particularly meaningful location for their photo’s since that area was once owned by Matt’s relatives many years ago. Having a bridal party who were not afraid to laugh at themselves and relished the opportunity to partake in some cheeky antics lead to their faces being permanently fixed with these animated smiles, eyes crinkled and squinty with genuine laughter!
As the sun disappeared across the water, an epic battle broke out involving light sabres, wands being drawn, and even a bubble blowing unicorn! I’m not entirely certain of who won, but Kate ended up being led away in handcuffs to the reception thanks to best man Kyle… I mean officer Kyle. With a wonderfully relaxed and fun filled evening that followed, we somehow managed to sneak outside for some night shooting, and partied on into what was an absolutely magical evening!
Congratulations Matthew and Kate, and thank you so much for allowing Brett and I to be part of such an impressive day with you and your families!
