Blues Point Reserve & Sir Stamford Hotel Wedding: Febien & Michael – Part 1

In December, we had the pleasure of shooting this beautiful, intimate wedding.  You might remember Febien and Michael from Part 1 or Part 2 of their fantastic engagement session. We had just as much fun photographing their wedding and getting to know Febien and Michael’s lovely friends. This was the smallest wedding that Jeff and I have photographed (or even attended), and at the end of the night we said to each other, “Small weddings are awesome!”  It was just a great day all around. We started out at the beautiful Intercontinental Hotel at Circular Quay, where Febien got ready with her mother and friends in a spectacular suite overlooking the Royal Botanic Gardens and the Opera House. Febien looked absolutely ravishing in her custom-made gown. Her cathedral-length veil was simply amazing!

We snapped a few portraits around the beautiful interior of the Intercontinental Hotel before it was time to head to the ceremony site.

The day started out with a bit of uncertainty, with the ceremony planned to take place at the beautiful Blues Point Reserve in McMahons Point. The morning of the wedding I had phoned Febien, and the first words out of her mouth were: “It’s raaiiiinning, Erin! Oh nooo!” We all wondered whether the ceremony would have to be moved indoors to location plan B. But to everyone’s delight, in the hour or two leading up to the wedding, the rain stopped and the clouds thinned out.  The weather was absolutely perfect the rest of the day! The ceremony site at Blues Point Reserve looked absolutely beautiful, having been decorated by Weddings With Love.

Febien and Michael met through their best friends—who ended up married as well! Their two friends stood by them as attendants at the wedding, of course.

Febien’s mother walked her down the aisle and both ladies were looking lovely!

The wedding was officiated by Ann Dally and she did a wonderful job! The ceremony was beautiful.

Once the rings were on, they were married!

The wedding guests had HUGE handfuls of cream-colored petals to shower the newlyweds. Fantastic!

After the ceremony, the guests all climbed in to the very cool stretch limo that would transport the entire group to our next location. And awesomely—Jeff and I got to ride in the limo too! Out came the champagne and it was time for a first round of toasts!
