Like Briana & Richard I have always loved the idea of a family wedding celebration...very Father of the Bride i know!! When we met to discuss the plans for their day it sounded so classic, timeless & sentimental and the outcome was exactly that. Real Weddings are featuring a 4 page story in their current Style edition and here is a lovely behind the scenes peek at some of our favourite moments captured by SugarLove Weddings. The bride wore a stunning strapless couture gown with matching bolero by Steven Khalil
The bridal preparations took place at the Sheraton on the Park
The cutest little attendants (love the belts & cameras!!)
The couple chose St Philips for a traditional church ceremony.
Groom, Richard with his groomsmen pre ceremony at St Philips.
Briana handmade the paper flowers that adorned the church pews
I love these church photos, the lighting & leadlight has a yellow cast which is interesting for photography & video coverage. The whole feeling of the church was very regal, perfectly suited to the style of Briana & Richard's day.
The couples photo shoot & all-white reception to follow took place at a private family residence in Darling Point. Briana's aunty arranged the magnificent fresh flowers.
The locations for our shoot were endless...manicured gardens, private harbourside sandy beach, historic house. It truly was a paradise lost in time and a divine place to shoot.
Simple was best outside with the natural stone urns and archways embellished for the occasion with most areas left a la natural.
Briana's Dad looked after most of the preparations and planning for the private reception. Described as a dynamo and the only person who could capture the vision of the couple, the result was breathtaking.
The marquee overlooked Sydney Harbour & was the perfect setting for the couples reception. Antique lamps, french chairs, white roses, iron chandeliers and view to die for.
The bride enjoys a brief moment with one of her bridesmaids pre photo shoot. The weather was picture perfect.
White roses & candles everywhere - simple & classic!
The dining room is dressed for small groups & guests start to arrive. The canapes are served & groomsmen enjoy a laugh on the harbour.
One of my favourite SugarLove shots of Briana from the day.
The couple & their bridal party outside one of the historic buildings.
The delightful Briana & Richard share some private moments together for our team.
As the sun went down and the lanterns were lit it was time to party under the stars.
Even the little ones enjoyed a dance under the moonlight.
Briana & Richard enjoy their first dance together as husband & wife. Our video team at White Designs also covered the day in Signature DSLR style.
We really enjoyed being a part of your day Brie & Richard and congrats on the birth of your baby girl on Valentines Day this year. Another sweet beginning to what we are sure will be an incredible life together x
