We loved working on the wedding of Bianca Newton & Jason Fraser in March last year, hard to believe it was a year ago (Happy Anniversary to you both for this week!!) Our photos were published in the very lovely Studio Brides issue 47 and now we have put together an extended series of our favourites below to share from their vintage themed wedding day...enjoy..
Bianca at the bridal prep and her incredible dress & Jimmy Choos. Earrings by Chanel
Steven Khalil designed Bianca's stunning 1950's inspired gown. Featuring a strapless fitted bodice with intricate beading in an asymmetrical splash of silver the tulle skirt combined structure structure and haute design with a gentle floating effect.
Grandiflora designed a romantic combination of old-world roses for the bridal bouquets
The couple were inspired with the party scene in the film Sabrina for their wedding theme. The bridesmaids wore classic Dior inspired dresses to compliment the black & white vintage style.
The black Mercedes Benz S Class was provided by Australia in Style
Bianca & Jason's 100 guests assembled at St Mary Magdalene in Rose Bay to celebrate the nuptials in classic silver screen style.
The bridal party photo shoot took place by the water. The grooms suit was tailored by Matthew Lawrence Bespoke & groomsmen were dressed by Peppers Formal Hire
Vaucluse House & the surrounding gardens were the location for the second part of our photo shoot. The couple chose Vaucluse Tearooms for their reception dinner
The vintage theme continued at the reception where the tables were decorated with David Austin, Jude the Obscure & Julia roses in Autumn hues. Mixed with various shades of hydrangeas and surrounded by candlelight the old worldly theme was achieved perfectly
The modern Australian dinner menu was provided by Fresh Catering. The yummy cake was created by Cuisine Patisserie. Bianca & Jason enjoyed their first dance together as husband & wife to the Frank Sinatra classic "Just The Way You Look Tonight"... it was the perfect end to the perfect day and we wish you a lifetime of wonderful memories from the pics we created the SugarLove Team x

There is something about old fashioned glamour, opulent style and couture gowns that will always be in fashion regardless of how many rustic, vintage, DIY weddings are taking place worldwide at the moment. Perhaps I am a little biased with my own 1920's themed wedding taking place over 10 years ago but give me black & white films and a red carpet any day!! This shoot with Kate Moss was shot on location at the Ritz in Paris by Tim Walker for VOGUE

What makes a photo a favourite? Like many other photographic studios we have a favourite section on our SugarLove Weddings site which we update bi-annually. I would update it monthly if we could but the world of blogging & facebook come in super handy for the in-between time. We are sharing some of our favourite pics from our web gallery over the next few weeks and starting off with a black & white film shot from one of our first weddings which took place in the Hunter Valley in the year 2000. We hope you get some nice inspiration for your day from visiting some of ours, Leigh x
