02 Dec Jessica & Nigel | Ripples Chowder Bay Wedding
About three months ago I met up with Jessica & Nigel for a Pre-wedding shoot had a great time with them and was looking forward to the real thing.
Here is a bit about Jessica & Nigel’s big day.
North Sydney Harbourview Hotel was the first stop – photographing the girls getting ready. The bridesmaids dresses and the wedding gown was hanging in the window and looked amazing.
Makeup was nearly done and the girls were sipping Champagne, a prefect start to a wedding day. Got lots of relaxed getting ready shot and found a read chair I used as background for some details photos – very effective.
Next stop Georges Heights Lookout in Mosman for the wedding ceremony. Georges Height Lookout has a beautiful view over Clifton Garden’s Bay and the Sydney city in the background.
Got a great shot of Nigel and the boys arriving ” a bit late” with some buckets of flowers.
The ceremony was held under beautiful Chuppah that looked little like the Leaning Tower of Pisa – it was perfectly set up by Outdoor Wedding Aisles but when Nigel arrived he had another spot in mind. Better view but had to compromise with the level ground. I love it it ads more to the vintage style.
Everything was now ready for the arrival of the bride. At Georges Heights Lookout there is a fantastic walk for the bride to arrive at the ceremony. There is an approximately 2 min walk including staircase before you reach the ceremony spot. and the guest can see the bride the whole way.
After a beautiful ceremony we organized a few family photos and a group photo. I also got a few of the newly wed and bridal party at Georges Heights Lookout, before driving down to Chowder Bay and Clifton Garden for some more wedding location photos.
Chowder Bay, Clifton Gardens and Clifton Garden Beach and is a fantastic spot for wedding photos. We have lots of different places and backgrounds to work with. Vintage buildings, sandstone walls and stairs, bush, beach and even a wharf. Cant get much better then that.
Ripples Chowder Bay Wedding Reception was the last stop on this beautiful wedding day. The restaurant was overflowing with beautiful flowers and decorated in a vintage style.
Big thanks to Ripples for the beautiful meal and for looking after me so well.
Congratulation Jessica & Nigel and thank you for choosing me to be your wedding photographer.
