Real Wedding - Skye & Josh

We were thrilled to have the December summer front cover of Real Weddings Magazine with one of our favourite events in 2011 - the wedding of Skye & Josh.
Skye found her dream wedding dress just two weeks into her engagement in Bali. Her dress was by Dinda Rella.
Her headpiece & veil were designed by the extraordinary Johanna Johnson.
In keeping with Skye's exotic, etheral & relaxed theme for the wedding, the flowers throughout the day were by Melinda Tualima.
The brides stunning beaded shoes were by Badgley Mischka.
The guest favours were little Balinese temple boxes filled with one of the bride's favourite sweets - Rosewater Turkish Delight.
The bridesmaids wore barely there pink dresses with corset style tops and tulle skirts by Forever New. Skye's Mum embellished them with some elegant beading.
Skye's bouquet was full of white roses and hydrangeas - a perfect blend and contrast to those of the bridesmaids.
The mother of the bride also made the soft pink headbands for the bridesmaids.
Josh & his groomsmen get ready for the church ceremony. Suit by Studio Italia, shirt & tie by Farage.
After five years together Josh proposed on Skye's birthday with the most beautiful ring she had ever seen. Their emotional church ceremony took place at St Thomas Anglican Church in North Sydney.
Skye said "the service was warm and personal and it was such a joyful wedding, we were filled with love & happiness and excited about our future together".
The gorgeous couple officially announced as husband & wife.
One of my favourite shots from their day - so candid and in love...and photogenic!!

The nearby wharf and waterfront near Shelly Beach were an easy choice for the photo shoot on the day. Our Real Weddings front cover shot below.
Most clients are always surprised to see how we can work our SugarLove magic in such a small space of time on the day. With great natural light, a couple that are in the moment and great direction working with our clients is always a pleasure.
Skye handpainted and designed all the stationery herself - the perfect start to her new business Cloud Story.
White paper lanterns are always in style for a beachfront wedding.

If you are near Woollahra in Sydney's Eastern Suburbs come and see our new shop window pic (as above) chosen from Skye & Josh's wedding day.
The couple chose Le Kiosk in Shelly Beach for their relaxed beachside reception.
The mantlepiece displayed an incredible collection of scented roses, white hydrangea, lotus pods & cascading passionfruit flowers.
The dining room was decorated with ivy hanging from sandstone pillars & candlelit lanterns.
The cute & delicious wedding cake was made by Faye Cahill
Tables were decorated with rustic silver jars filled with freshly picked flowers & sprigs of rosemary and rose geranium.
Skye says "It was a magical evening filled with laughter & lots of dancing. At the end of the night we handed out little bags and asked our guests to take some of the flowers home".
Skye & Josh's vision of a rustic "Mamma Mia" style wedding was captured perfectly.
A moonlight stroll back to their hotel after the reception allowed the gorgeous couple to cherish the lights over Manly & talk about what a special day it had been. It was so divine to work with them and everyone at SugarLove Weddings wish you a lifetime of happiness together x
