Bradleys Head Engagement Session: Cathy & Stewart

Today we have a gorgeously romantic engagement session to show you, featuring one of the sweetest couples you’ll ever meet! We were so excited when Cathy and Stewart contacted us about their wedding, since Stewart is the brother of not one but two of our past couples that we just adore: Jen (of Jen & Ben) and Chris (of Melissa & Chris)! Sweetness clearly runs in Stewart’s family tree like syrup in a sugar maple, as they are all some of the kindest people you’ll meet. We were delighted to meet Cathy, in whom Stewart has found his perfect match. During the photo session, while helping Cathy avoid some mud, she said, “don’t worry, I’m not a princess… he just treats me like one.” I think that about sums it up!

When they first met, Stewart asked Cathy if she wanted to grab a cup of coffee. Cathy said she was feeling bored and liked Stewart’s smile, so went straight for suggesting dinner. Surprised but pleased, Stewart agreed to meet her for dinner that evening, but was in a hurry and had no time to iron his shirt, which Cathy picked up on! Thankfully, their conversation went well and Cathy forgave him. Of course, she says, now she makes sure he has an ironed shirt wherever they go! ;)

We decided to go to Bradleys Head for their engagement session. The parkland around the harbour was looking absolutely beautiful on this winter’s afternoon. The light was just dreamy! Cathy was looking gorgeous in her super-cute sundress, and Stewart, of course, was looking great in a freshly pressed shirt for the photo session (good job, Cathy)!

The kookaburras were out and laughing in the sunshine along with us.

In Taylors Bay, on the east side of Bradleys Head, the lowering sun was creating some magical light.

Stewart popped the question while he and Cathy were on holiday in Fiji last year. They had already selected the ring together, so Cathy knew it was coming eventually, but Stewart picked the time and place on his own. He proposed on a small island towards the end of their trip. How romantic!

I love these too and these cool, jungly stairs.

Down on the small beach near the Bradleys Head ampitheatre, the incoming tide and setting sun provided the perfect dramatic backdrop! The Sydney skyline is gorgeous from Bradleys Head. Our happy couple had a quick outfit change and Cathy put on a cute winter coat as the warmth of the day began to fade.

And look, Stewart even made sure to stop by a florist on the way to the session to pick up some sunset-coloured roses for his bride-to-be. How sweet!

Cathy and Stewart brought along their brand-new wedding bands, which we couldn’t resist photographing a few months early!
